An icon of the counter-culture, Clarks recruits Grime MC, D Double E, to front their AW20 Maple Suede Wallabees.
Since its release in 1968, the Clarks Original Maple Suede Wallabee has been the shoe of choice for revolutionaries, free thinkers and counter-culture icons.
The recognisable style has been crowned as Hip Hop’s most iconic shoe. The hype stemmed from the early 90s when New York’s rap collective Wu-Tang Clan started rocking them in their music videos, at parties and even rapping about them in one of their best-known songs ‘Gravel Pit’.
This season, Legendary DJ and Grime pioneer D Double E wears them with style on the set of his intimate album release gig at South London coffee shop, Coffee & Cocktails Peckham, personifying the Wallabee’s rebellious origin and musical roots.
