Y’all remember the Clarks‘ Wallabees, right? For many hip-hop fans, you probably know it thanks to Wu-Tang Clan. Or, if you’re a sad boy like me and listened to Brand New, you’ll remember Jesse Lacey rocking these to some early 2000’s Long Island emo. Usually done in suede, the latest version of the shoes-for-music-crews comes in premium Italian natural veg-tan leather. And that’s pretty much the only difference. No fussing around with the shape, moc-toe stitching, or the natural crepe sole. Now, as you struggle to make it in the music biz, going from open mic nights to sold out stadiums, your journey can be told through the patina.
