This Spring we are proud to join forces with Clarks. Our first collaboration with Clarks Sportswear
reinterprets their Traxter mid, an Originals inspired silhouette that features a combination
of iconic Clarks design and technical innovation. For this release we reworked the
entire upper with an old school performance fabric by English textile co.
Ventile as well as introducing a padded collar component made from a lux sheepskin leather.
Originally developed during the War for fighter pilot suits, Ventile is a fully water
resistant fabric which is lightweight and constructed entirely from untreated cotton.
Developed today for performance outerwear, the material’s unique properties are
found in the densely woven yarn that expands to create a shield when in contact
with water. As a result, Ventile, whilst having the natural feel that cotton provides,
offers excellent protection against the elements.
Additional design features to the hanon traxter include a gasket sock liner, an
ortholite memory footbed with a sheepskin top layer, leather hang tag, super light
EVA sole unit and dual lace set. Collaborative branded detail appears via a embossed
leather heel tab, woven tongue label and multi screened insert. Each pair
will come with a Ventile dust bag.
Launch: 16th March 2013
