Palm Angels has dropped its latest capsule collection with Clarks Originals.

For the duo’s second collaboration, Palm Angels’ designer Francesco Ragazzi has reinterpreted the Wallabee – the Clarks Original’s iconic model – through his brand’s disruptive and contemporary aesthetic. First released in 1968, the Wallabee became the shoe of choice for the era’s revolutionaries, free thinkers, and counter-culture icons.

Produced in two different styles, one for men and one for women in black and lilac, the Palm Angels x Clarks Wallabee twists the original construction of the shoe, long admired for its moccasin construction, structural silhouette, and the quality of its heavyweight English suede and leather. Defined by simplicity and crafted from just two pieces of suede, the Wallabee structure sits on a natural crepe outsole, with a cushioned three-quarter sock, for supreme comfort. An extra natural rubber wedge and suede fringes are added to the women’s style.

The second drop of Palm Angels x Clarks Original, which follows the initial iteration launched in July, is now available on the Palm Angels e-commerce site and in select stores worldwide.
