We are excited to announce the launch of our second collaboration with Clarks Originals
In October 2022, Vandy released one of the hottest shoes on the planet when he
customized 200 pairs of Wallabees by hand with skeleton detailing on the vamp. Now for the
second instalment of the partnership with Clarks, Vandy reimagines the Wallabee Boot with
his now-iconic burger motif.
Vandy is a maker in the truest sense of the word and has become known for his shoe and
fashion creations. Born in Korea and based in Virginia, the designer-slash-artist draws from
his rich cultural background to reinterpret all-time classics with an unexpected twist. Eye-
catching, whimsical and refined, Vandy’s footwear brings a bold, playful look to any daily
rotation. The designer has since extended his reach to viral brand collaborations, homeware
design and popular food packaging including a recent collaboration with McDonalds.
To bring the burger Wallabee to life, the designer uses smooth tan suede, turning the iconic
silhouette into a bun. The vamp is detailed with white embroidery that resembles dustings of
sesame seeds for an authentic finishing touch. To complete the pair, two classic dual-
branded fobs are accompanied by four playful ones that look like key burger fillings –
tomato, lettuce, cheese and a patty. They capture Vandy The Pink’s signature ingenuity
while keeping Clarks Originals dedication to craft firmly in focus.
The collaborative capsule released on Friday October 27th available to buy online in
the UK, EU, US, Japan, China on www.clarks.com and www.clarks.eu as well as in store in
London (Berwick Street), Manchester, Osaka, Tokyo, and Beijing. Priced at £200, $260,
