clarks originals has teamed up with vancouver-based heritage brand herschel supply to tweak the iconic desert boot. earlier this week the limited edition shoe has seen its global launch taking place during an immersive one-night showcase at walls art gallery in amsterdam's scenic canal district. although the shoe's silhouette is still instantly recognizable, significant alterations have been implemented, most notably the leather shoestrings and a heel patch in raw denim, to give it a distinct contemporary edge. the launch setting in the dutch capital featured additional displays of additional designs by both brands, all presented in sleek modern displays, and against a backdrop of artwork that not only references issue #3 of the journal, herschel supply's very first publication, but also its creative focus in general. press professionals and a select group of invitees rubbed shoulders in a relaxed atmosphere to view the showcase and engage in jolly banter. the clarks originals x herschel supply desert shoe will be available as of today at select stores across the planet.
