Trigenic - Clarks Reinvented

Hold onto your hats, Clark's wearing traditionalists.  For those that are true to the Desert Boot and Wallabee traditional styles, turn away.  While there have definitely been a lot of new takes on the Deserts and Wallabees (ome good, some plain ugly), I really like the direction Trigenic is taking.  A fresh reinterpretation of the classics yields a modern silhouette and comfortable vibram details.  I'll take one in every color, thank you.

At Clarks, the moccasin is a well celebrated construction method taken from our Wallabee. The goal with Trigenic was to harness the constructional knowledge Clarks has and apply it to an athletic silhouette, replacing the traditional Strobel construction, which is commonly found on most athletic shoes. - Sneaker Freaker (Trigenic)

What do you think about the design?  Or is there a collaboration or iteration of the Desert or Wallabee you like even more than Trigenic?  


  1. I really do like these actually, like the slight ugliness and akwardness to them. Thanks for featuring these as I've not seen them before! Wonder how much they are?
