The Horween Leather Company is a US institution, around since 1905 they are one of America’s oldest and most celebrated tanneries producing some of the “finest premium leathers for use worldwide”. They make an ideal collaborative partner for ClarksOriginals, with both priding themselves on “Skill & Craftmanship” and with authentic heritage.
Just when you thought the Clarks iconic desert boot couldn’t get any more desirable, it went ahead and tapped Chicago’s Horween Leather for a refreshing upgrade. The fall release features the casual boot silhouette and wedge sole outfitted with leather uppers from the famed leather tannery, in your choice of dark greenor burgundy.
If you’re more of a Wallabee kind of guy, don’t fret. Clarks Originals is offering the much loved moccasin-style boot in full Horween leather uppers, as well.
Made from the same leather used in the production of basket balls, the upper will provide ample protection for damp leaf kicking (or cooking crystal – whichever’s your bag) and is a material that’s only going to look better as it ages.X
