Clarks Originals X Wu-Wear Announce Limited-Edition Wallabee Collection40.7128° N, 74.0060° W
"The Wallabee Champ"
The relationship between fashion and hip-hop has been present since the music genre’s inception. One of its most notable is the Wu-Tang Clan’s connection with the Clarks Wallabee with each of its member giving their own endorsement for the shoe. The most notable homage coming from the Ghostface Killah in 2008, when he released a compilation album of B-sides titled The Wallabee Champ.
This weekend, the saga continues with a collaborative collection of Clarks x Wu-Wear Wallabees.
This limited-edition treatment is comprised of two colourways. The first is a clean black-on-black and the other is a cool maple suede. Both versions are stamped with the Wu-Wear logo on the heel and on the hang tag.
This release will be sold exclusively at Barneys.
The release will take place tomorrow, June 2nd and Sunday, June 3rd.
