“Wallabees are a staple of the hip-hop community and fashion culture,” Richardson said in a press release. “Being able to work on a multifaceted campaign with Clarks that touches on fashion, music, basketball, and art is an honor.”
The resulting collab shoe, seen in greater detail below and featuring Minnesota Timberwolves star Kyle Anderson, is the limited-edition Floor Seats Wallabee, the release of which will be done exclusively through an NFT purchase and as part of this year’s Art Basel festivities.
For the digital component of the collab, BK the Artist has been enlisted to bring to life the familiar silhouette’s deep connection with the city of New York. NFT holders, meanwhile, will be given access to the physical shoe itself, marking the only path to securing a pair aside from the collab’s limited Art Basel release in Miami next month.
This physical-meets-digital project from Clarks Originals follows the brand’s collab collection with Moncler back in August. That release include two winter silhouettes, including Moncler-ified takes on the Monwallabee and Wallabee boots.
