The CLARKS ORIGINALS X PATTA DESERT TREK sees the Amsterdam brand add two slick spins to the “Bank Robber” model…

It’s a known fact that Clarks Originals have long been on the feet of dancehall legends and revellers, with the shoe fully embraced by the people of Jamaica, who visiting the UK back in the ‘70s and ‘80s, would take stashes of the Desert Trek back home with them. The shoe’s trademark embossed hiker with backpack motif was interpreted as a robber making away with a bag of loot, earning it the “Bank Robber” moniker out there. With both sentiments in mind, Amsterdam collab connoisseurs have linked up with Clarks to deliver a crisp white and black take on the model which works butter-soft leather with patent side panels with a contrasting coloured stitch. The result makes the perfect addition to the line, which aims to raise awareness around Jamaica’s monumental influence on this shoe’s success.

The CLARKS ORIGINALS X PATTA DESERT TREK is due to release on SATURDAY 31 AUGUST: hit the banner below to register for a pair at END. LAUNCHES today.
