Two utilitarian brands, Carhartt Work In Progress (WIP) and Clarks Originals, are releasing a duo of collaborative Wallabee boots. Presented in both brown and olive livery, the understated execution contains all of Carhartt WIP’s DNA.
The brown pair references the ubiquitous ‘Brown Combi’ shade of Carhartt’s iconic workwear jackets, evident by the canvas ankle collar detail. The olive pair, on the other hand, nods to the WIP streetwear arm’s military-influenced palettes, with its camouflaged ankle collar.
Both pairs exhibit practical features like metal eyelets, subtle brand tags, and co-branded suede swatches. A rather subtle detail is the triple-stitched ankle collars, referencing the same durable construction on Carhartt garments.
