In case you hadn’t heard, here’s a quick reminder: The Clarks Originals Wallabee is back. In a big way. The anti-fashion shoes have been in and out of mainstream fashion since they first hit the pavement back in the 1960s (you might recall the Wu-Tang Clan rocking them back in the early ’90s), but the current dressed-down menswear mood is perfectly suited to the laid-back, moccasin-inspired style.
Aside from the basic, in-line version, there’s been no shortage of special releases in recent months. Like one from kudu leather, or another made from the same stuff they use to make old-school basketballs. And now, Drake and his OVO label are upping the ante with a premium version crafted in Italy from Italian suede and finished with leather on the seams. A debossed OVO monogram pattern covers the entire vamp, and the classic style is completed with a custom hang-tag featuring the label’s instantly recognizable owl in gold foil.
There are four colorways of the ankle-high boot: tan, orange, light blue, and black. Any one of them will give you all due bragging rights when it comes to flexing on your friends and neighbors. So really, the only question is, what’s your pick? The entire lineup is available right now from OVO’s site, and as with all things cosigned by Drake, these are all but guaranteed to sell out, so you’d better act fast.
