Nathan Clark for Clarks Shoes
Created in tribute to Nathan Clark, one of the icons of the Clark family and the creator of the original Desert Boot. The new Nathan Clark for Clarks Shoes Collection is very much led by the name.
His life was one of social and geographical variety, which led him to be a prodigious experimenter and innovator. Being a curious and adventurous soul, his passions took he across the globe, but he retained an office at the Clarks’ UK headquarters where, following his death in 2011 a plethora of sketches and ideas were found among piles of unfinished projects.
Among these ideas were the blueprints for the styles now called Duty Desert & Duty Trek.
The Duty Desert is a unique style which features brogueing details, a fringe below the tongue and contrast stitching in a tradition lace up silhouette. The Duty Trek is also based on a traditional lace up but with a casual twist and shows off contrast leather & stitching, with brass eyelets, and a predominantly brushed leather upper.
Both designs are available from Clarks now, with a comprehensive shoe collection available including further designs by Nathan Clark.
