The Clarks Wallabee Gets Toughened Up for Winter

The Clarks Wallabee Gets Toughened Up for Winter


What shoe couldn’t use some Gore-Tex?

Moc-toe shoes have been on the menswear scene for years now, but sometime recently, they started spiking, trend-wise—and the boxy footwear style shows no signs of slowing down. The shoes are elegant and durable, with just the right amount of unconventional flair, so it’s easy to see why style-forward dudes have flocked to them. And when it comes to the moc-toe style, it’s hard to beat one of the originals: the Clarks Wallabee. And for that reason, the shoe has become a three-season favorite for everyone from the Wu-Tang Clan to GQ editors. Now, the iconic bootmakers have teamed up with Japanese retailer-label Beams on a limited-edition pair that’s just right for winter, that dangerous-for-footwear fourth season.

The Wallabee is one of Clarks’ most idiosyncratic styles, a distinctive silhouette with an instantly recognizable shape, and the higher-cut Wallabee Boot tends to give off the vibe of an eccentric desert boot. (We say that in the best possible way, of course.) Crafted from soft suede, this winter-ready pair of Wallabee boots is outfitted with weatherproof Gore-tex lining, ensuring dry feet in miserable wet weather—and breathability come dryer days. The boot also comes in either a dark navy blue or a maple-hued suede, and both styles are rounded out with rugged Vibram outsoles that offer next-level traction and durable support. Think of this as the Land Rover of Wallabees: boxy and sleek in a way that is perfectly suited for both city streets and rugged terrain.
