THE SHOE THAT AL­WAYS FITS

Esquire (Malaysia) - - STYLE -

There aren’t many shoes that work as well on an Ox­ford pro­fes­sor as they do on the Wu-tang Clan, but Wal­labees do just that. Chalk it up to the suede up­per, the crepe sole, the rugged stitch­ing, or the dis­tinc­tive shape—what­ever the rea­son, th­ese moc­casin-chukka cross­breeds have qui­etly earned their place as the most ver­sa­tile kicks around. Clarks has been turn­ing out the orig­i­nals since 1967, but this sea­son the fash­ion crowd got in on the game, with houses like Saint Lau­rent and Tod’s mak­ing sub­tle tweaks to a clas­sic. Whether it’s im­i­ta­tion or homage, you can’t have too much of a good thing.
