MF DOOM X CLARKS ORIGINALS
MF DOOM teams up with Clarks Originals, on his first job as an Originals Pioneer to re-create his favourite Clarks shoe; the Wallabee.
For his project with Clarks, DOOM chose to create a limited edition Original Wallabee, a shoe that has a long history within hip hop. "I was trying to think, 'What can I add with that Metal Face touch to it?,' without taking away from that feeling" and we think DOOM's nailed it! The Wallabee is naturally a clean and smart shoe; I think DOOM's modifications compliment that fact and don't overwhelm the shoe at all. Nonetheless he has definitely left his mark, and these will be hitting the shelves real soon!

DOOMS updated classic sports a brown leather upper accented with reflective stitching, and reflective piping throughout the laces; both giving the shoe that metal-like effect.
DOOM has signed off this collaboration leaving a mask logo embossed at the heel; a subtle touch that works really well. The inner lining and the sole of the Wallabee feature an allover DOOM mask print; it's final touches like these that finish this joint project perfectly.
The second part of this collaboration sees the release of an exclusive track and video, both said to be releasing in March. Look for the MF DOOM Wallabees to drop March 13th.
I can't wait to get my hands on a pair of these! If it's 3M we're getting it! Plus how can you refuse when you've got a 3M MF DOOM shirt just waiting to be paired with them!
