With appreciation to 50 years of Jamaican independence, the beat goes on this season with the mighty Trojan Records lending their logo to Reggae’s favourite toe tapping shoe - the Desert Trek. Taking its name from the seven ton truck that founder Duke Reid used to transport his sound system around Jamaica, Trojan Records has led the way in presenting the very best in classic Jamaican sounds since its debut in 1968. From the Rock Steady and early Reggae that dominated in the years of its launch up to the modern styles of Ragga and Dancehall. So, in our salute to more than half a century of classic Jamaican sounds and the 40 year birthday of this iconic style, what better symbol to adorn our special edition Desert Trek than Trojan’s unmistakable logo.
The Trek’s beautifully finished leathers were chosen by Lance Clark himself, the man who brought us the Original Desert Trek in 1972.
The special 40th Anniversary logo, sock stamp and exclusive box packaging make this limited edition a must have for AW12. Click here to shop the Trojan Trek.
