Japanese brand Neighborhood have teamed up with Clarks Originals to release two styles on the latter’s most iconic silhouettes: the Wallabee and the Desert Trek.

The Wallabee is well embedded in the streetwear generation and is a Clarks Originals icon across the globe thanks to its moccasin construction and structure.

This season’s collaboration with Neighborhood brings us the Wallabee in a clean and simplistic aesthetic in black ballistic nylon, combined with a suede vamp, a Vibram sole and a GORE-TEX lining to keep your feet in peak condition.

The famous Desert Trek or ‘bank robber’ as it’s fondly known in Jamaica, has been redesigned by taking inspiration from Neighborhood’s modern fundamental values in design.

The Trek has remained a design classic for more than 40 years, which marks this new grey addition with Neighborhood’s print on premium suede upper. Of course this new trek design features the ‘Trek Man’ marking and a distinctive central butt seam.

Both shoes feature the added design element of Neighborhood’s emboss on the collar, allowing the wearer to represent two of the most recognisable streetwear brands around.

The collection is available from 17th January from the Next Door in Paris and the Clarks Originals flagship store on 32 Berwick Street, Soho, London. The shoes are then available worldwide from 18th January.
