Herschel Supply is proud to announce a partnership with iconic England-based footwear brand, Clarks Originals®. Crafted with the highest quality standards, their renowned Desert Boot is available in two colors and reimagined with Herschel Supply detailing as a North American release for Holiday 2014.
“Clarks represents an iconic casual style that can be dressed up or down,” explains Jamie Cormack – Herschel Supply’s co-founder and creative director.” As far as the partnership goes, it was really a coming together of two likeminded brands that represent design-driven thinking and timelessness; it was a natural fit.”
Inspired by the crepe-soled footwear worn by off-duty British soldiers in Cairo, the Desert Boot was designed by Nathan Clark in 1949. For the Clarks Originals® and Herschel Supply partnership, this classic silhouette’s practicality and aesthetic is united with progressive heel panel materials. Selvedge denim joins a premium leather upper on the Navy Blue Desert Boot, and the Army Green adaptation (shown here) combines a tactile suede upper with cotton ripstop. Both renditions feature full grain leather weaving through the metal eyelets of the simplified lace pattern.
Welt-stitched to the durable uppers is the natural rubber crepe sole that is synonymous with Clarks Originals®. Herschel Supply’s interior detailing includes the signature striped fabric liner and classic logo debossed on the footbed.
The Herschel Supply and Clarks Originals® Desert Boot is now available in limited quantities at select North American stockists.
