The Clarks Originals Desert Trek is celebrating the big 5-0 this year. Known as a keystone of Clarks’ design language and heritage, Clarks Originals has faithfully recreated it for its 50th anniversary.
This new Clarks Desert Trek is an ode to its predecessor, from the shoe’s most distinctive feature, its central fore-foot seam, to the iconic crepe sole, and original suede color. For this 50th anniversary, Clarks returns to their roots to honor the Trek with these two brand new iterations of the model. Beginning with the shoemakers of Somerset, the Clarks brand has been immortalized in stories across the globe; from the mods of London, over to the toothbrush-holding rude boys of Kingston, where Clarks holds a special place, and Desert Treks have earned the nickname “Bank Robbers” for the satchel-toting figure emblazoned on the shoe.
The Clarks Originals Trek Hi 50 ($160) is highlighted by the iconic Trek Man. Details include its exclusive 50th anniversary sock artwork and original fob, to a bespoke heel counter design, with baseball cap and coffee cup. The signature butt seam is left white for a laid-back look on its hairy suede upper.
The Clarks Originals Trek Hi 50th Warmlined ($240) is also a brand-new iteration of the model. Ideal for the closer months of the season, thins winter-ready version is exceptionally soft and flexible while also being crafted with a real shearling lining for complete warmth and a glove-like, natural and comfortable fit.
Get a good look at both the Clarks Originals Trek Hi 50 and Clarks Originals Trek Hi 50th Warmlined below and pick up either or today directly from clarksusa.com.
