Clarks Remixes Its Cult-Classics With Comfort and Sustainability in Mind

The Desert Boot, Wallabee, and more made even better.

Back in 1967, Clarks released a shoe called the Wallabee. The British brand took inspiration for its design from a German-designed moccasin, and the style became a staple in men's wardrobes through the years. It even still remains a cult classic these days. But, of course, Clarks isn't just one to look back. It moves forward, too.

Before we get into all that, the Wallabee isn't going anywhere anytime soon. (You can breathe easy.) Instead, we're getting a new icon that embodies Clarks' DNA. The brand has brought in other new styles, revamped profiles, and reworked classics that we're all into.

For the latest collection, the Wallabee has been remixed in the name of comfort with the use of responsible materials. It's not only the Wallabee that's been given a makeover, though. The cult Desert Boots has also gotten new lightweight, step-booting soles, and cushioning. The end result are casual styles that fit the modern man's lifestyle.

There's the Courtlite Wally that pretty much retains the idea of the Wallabee, only more athletic, casual, and lightweight. While the Courtlite DBT also gets the same treatment with the added bonus of a high rebound, lightweight part-recycled EVA midsole.

As for sneakers, Clarks gives the retro athletic aesthetic a go with the CourtLite Tor. Much like the reworked classics, the Tor puts comfort first with lightweight cushioning, as well as lightweight part-recycled EVA midsole and recycled rubber and shoelaces. Another style worth checking out? The Nature X One collection, if only to get your sports-casual hybrid fix.

The Clarks core collection is available now online and in-store at Clarks Central Square, Mall of Asia, and TriNoMa.
