Salehe Bembury has got to be one of the busiest people in the fashion industry right now. Following a range of collaborations with Crocs and New Balance, the New York City-based creative has taken to Instagram to tease his next project, the Salehe Bembury x Clarks Lugger. Rumors of this partnership first surfaced at the end of last month, and now, we're finally taking a look at the shoe in question.
Hype surrounding Clarks has been skyrocketing over the past few months. A wardrobe staple in Japanese markets, the British footwear company is becoming more and more popular over in Malaysia, Singapore, and the Philippines. Spotted here in a bold burnt orange color suede, the sides of the Lugger feature a smooth texture while the vamp and tongue area opts for a hairy finish. This is finished off with a splash of gray along the toebox, and a genuine crepe rubber sold down below.
Not much else is known about the Salehe Bembury x Clarks Lugger at this moment in time, but one thing that we know about the American designer is that he loves releasing a bunch of different colorways, so expect a lot more to be announced very soon.
