AS ALL US TOON FANS GET READY FOR THE NEW SEASON, LETS KICK IT OFF IN STYLE WITH A BIT OF FOOTWAER FIT FOR THE PREMIER LEAGUE.

FIRST UPS GOTTA BE THE GOOD OLD FASHION BRITISH LABLE THAT GOES BY THE NAME OF CLARKS, IT’S A BIT STRANGE THAT ITS TOOK A JAMACAN WRAPPA THAT WEARS DESERT BOOTS WITH STRIDES THAT ARE TOO LONG AND HIS TOUNGE HANGING OVER THE LACES TO BRING THIS BRAND BACK INTO THE LIMELIGHT BUT THE WORLDS FULL OF DIVEYS AND IF THAT’S WHAT IT TAKES TO BOOST MONEY BACK INTO A NO DOUBT WEAKENING COMPANY THEN SO BE IT, IT ALSO MEANS THAT IF YOUV GOT ENOUGH TIME TO SPARE IN 2 OR 3 MONTHS YOU CAN FIND SOME BEAUTIES ON EBAY FOR LESS THAN COST PRICE BY JUST SIMPLY TYPING IN “CLARKS”.

 

THE ITEM IM MOST HAPPY THAT’S MAKING A COME BACK IS THE GOOD OLD FASHIONED Oberon, HARKING BACK TO THE 70’S (WHEN FOOTIE WAS AT ITS BEST) THIS SKEET HAS STOOD THE TEST OF TIME, MOST KIDS MY AGE WILL ACCOCIATE THIS LOOK OF FOOTWAER WITH A NOB HEAD R.E TEACHER, BUT IF YOU CAN PULL THESE OFF YOUR ONTO A WINNER.

 

Outdoor inspired, similar to the famous Nature series, the Oberon features a comfort crepe sole and premium leather uppers for wearability and durability. THE LOOK OF THESE SHOES GIVES US THE PERFECT EXCUSSE TO CARRY FORWARD THE SAME WAXA THEME OF THE GREAT BRITISH OUTDOORS THAT A HANDFULL OF US HAVE BEEN ROCKIN’ SINCE ALBAM BURST ONTO THE SCENCE AND THE OBERONS RUSTIC COLOURS ARE THE PERFECT ACCOMPNIMENT TO ANY HILLWLKER OR WAXED COTTON JACKET.

 

KEEPING ON THE CLARKS THEME, IV ALWAYS BEEN A FAN OF THE ORIGINAL DESERT BOOT, THEY COME IN EVERY MATTERIAL, EVERY COLOUR WAY AND LOOK GREAT WITH DIFFERENT LACES SO CAN BE MATCHED TO SUITE, ALSO THEIR ULTRA HARD WEARING AND CAN BE RUSTICALY CLEANED WHICH BRING THEM BACK TO LIFE EVEN AFTER 12 PINTS OF STELLA, A BLOODBATH AND A KEEBAB HAVE BEEN SLOPPED ALL OWA THEM, THE ONLY THING THAT COULD EVER IMPROVE ON THE GREATNES OF THEM WOULD HAVE BEEN A SKINNYER SOLE… IN COMES LIAM GALLAGHER!!!!!!

PRETTY GREEN ISNT A LABLE THAT I WOULD BUY, PARTLY AS HES A COCK END, PARTLY COS THE NAMES SHIT AND PARTLY DUE TO THE FACT THAT QUALITY CONTROL MUST BE POLISH TO EVEN LET THE SCOOBY DOO BADGED LABLE BE SOLD AS A “DESIGNER TAG” BUT WITH THE HELP OF CLARKS THE LABLES COME GOOD.

 

IN MY OPPINION YOU KNOW YOU’VE GOT THE LONDON BOY LOOK OFF TO A NATURAL TEE IF YOU CAN PULL A PAIR OF ORIGINALS OFF WITH CREASED JEANS AND A BOATER, BUT IN ALL HONASTY THEIRS ONLY ONE FELLA IN THE HOLE COUNTRY IV SEEN DO IT WITH STYLE AND WEIR LUCKY ENOUGH THAT HE’S FROM WALKER IN NEWCASTLE, BUT IF YOUR LIKE ME AND THE MATH DOESN’T ALL ADD UP WITH THIS LOOK GET ON THE PRETTY GREEN WEBSITE AND HUNT OUT THE NEW BOOT, THEIRS ABOUT A 25% MARK UP FROM THE ORIGINALS BUT THE SOLES WORTH THE FEW EXTRA QUID, IV ONLY NOTICED THE SHOE IN 3 COLOURS BUT THEIR BASIC ENOUGH TO BUY ONE OF EACH AND LACE THEM UP YOURSELF OR LITTERALLY KEEP THEM AS BASICS, IM A BIG FAN OF DESERTS AND S.I TOGETHER, NOT A MATCH THAT MANY PEOPLE ROCK OUT AT THE MO BUT THAT MAKES IT EVEN BETTER!

 

WE CANT HAVE A PAGE DEDICATED TO THE GREATNES OF CLARKS WITHOUT INCLUDING THE WALLABEE, FOR A KID THAT GOT INTO CLOBBER IN THE 90’S WHEN MOST OF IT WAS OVERLY SIZED, OVERLY BRANDED SHIT, THE WALLABEE BRINGS BACK GOOD MEMORIES, ITS ALSO ONE OF THE FIRST SHOES I NOTICED THAT LOOKS EQUALLY AS COOL ON BIRDS AS IT DOES ON BLOKES, PARTLY AS THEY LOOK FANTASTIC WITH A BIT OF ANKLE SHOWING TO KICK OFF THE HOLE EFFECT OF THE SOLE. YOU CAN LITTERALLY GET THIS SHOE TO MATCH ANYTHING YOU WANT, THEY COME IN A SIZE RANGE FROM ABOUT A UK3 THROUGH TO UK12. I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE STILL ACCOSIATE THESE SHOES WITH 90’S BRIT POP BANDS, WHICH IN ALL FAIRNESS DID FUCK ALL IN THE WAY OF PUTING BRITAIN ON THE DRESSER MAP BUT LIKE EVERYTHING IF ITS WORN WITH FLAIR ITS FULL OF IT!

 

JUST BEFORE I GO ID ALSO LIKE TO RECOMENT THE CLARKS WEAVER SHOE FOR EVERYONE LOOKING FOR A CASUAL SHOE TO BE WORN WITH FULL FITTING JEANS OR CHINOS, ITS BASICALLY A WOVEN STICHED TAKE ON THE WALLABEE WITH A FULL CRAPE SOLE AND AUTUM C.W’S THAT LOOK THAT LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT FROM THE PLAIN WALLABEE, THEY PULL OFF THE HILLWALKER LOOK A BIT BETTER ASWELL BUT IM NOT SURE WHY, ALL I KNOW IS THEY LOOK ACE AND WITH THE WALLABEE FITTING THEIR COMFY AS SO YOU CANT GO WRONG.

 

THE PRICE POINT FOR THE ABOVE RANGE FROM £55-75... HAPPY SHOPPING FELLAS!
