Clarks Wallabee x Wu Wear
The Wu-Tang Clan’s seminal Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) changed the landscape of hip-hop when it released in November of 1993. Celebrating its 25th Anniversary, the group’s Wu Wear brand collaborates for three releases of a shoe directly tied to their legacy–The Clarks Wallabee. For this special edition, Clarks uses the historic Charles F. Stead tannery for the suede and includes “Enter the Wu-Tang” stamp on the left tongue and “9 November, 1993” on the right tongue. The Wu logo also hits the heel and fob in three colorways: yellow with a tan collar and black outsole, maple with a black collar, and all black.

VANS FW 2018 Collection
A slew of VANS options in several silhouettes and colorways hit the shelves. VANS was founded in 1966, and early shoes were manufactured in its Anaheim Factory, the name which the company uses for a line of shoes inspired by the early days. From this line of classics, we are offering an Old Skool 36 DX Corduroy model in black, a white and grey SK8-HI 38 DX, and two colorways of their Classic Slip-On 98 DX, one in navy and another in brown. Aside from those Anaheim Factory releases, a SK8-HI “Hairy Suede” edition arrives in dark navy and white, while another arrives in a light brown “sunflower” colorway. A monochrome Style 36 SF low top arrives with a flame logo on the lateral and medial panels with a white rubber toe cap and hits of black suede. The last offering is a new silhouette called the Staple Bold NI which keeps classic VANS styling with an over-sized formstripe and updated UltraCush liners.
