Clarks Originals is no stranger to an explosive colour palette; one scroll down the brand’s 150k-strong Insta feed would confirm this. Each thumbnail, made up of candy hues, casts a rainbow over the label’s budding social media presence.
And if you thought you’d seen enough of these striking shades for one season, well then think again. The British shoemaker’s latest drop, which is available now at Aphrodite Clothing, promises the same pigments – bundled within even better silhouettes.
On that note, let us introduce the mighty Desert Trek shoe. If you’re not familiar with this one, you should be. Mistakenly dubbed the ‘bank robber’ by Jamaican fans – a nickname that sticks to this day; the Clarks Originals design features the signature hiker figure to the heel carrying a large bag over his back – see the confusion now?
This fresh run of Desert Trek’s arrive at Aphrodite in burnt orange tumbled leather and plush khaki suede. Structurally, the colourful styles remain the same – with the central seam lining the foot, while a sturdy crepe sole keeps things stable for the city underfoot.
