CLARKS ORIGINALS X END. DESERT COAL ‘BLACK DIAMOND’ – LAUNCHING 15th OCTOBER 2016
Latest in a succession of collaborators drawn to Clarks Originals and their reputation for iconic design combined with craftsmanship is UK-based clothing and footwear retailer, END.
Specialists in luxury men’s style and premium streetwear from all over the world, END. has worked with the Clarks Originals’ designers to create ‘Black Diamond’ – a chukka boot inspired by the industry that helped shape the North East of England, home to the retailer’s flagship store.
Crafted from coal black leather and suede supplied by Charles F. Stead – the Leeds tannery that has been supplying Clarks Originals for more than six decades – Black Diamond utilises both sides of this premium double-faced bovine leather. The upper of this unique collaborative style has been made using a Clarks Desert Boot last and is combined with a Desert Trek wedge sole in black and silver stitching. Three eyelets, veg tan fobs and a woven heel pull are among the finishing touches.
