While there is an abundance of distinguishable traits from Clarks Originals Wallabee Boots, the Tawyer Mid is really a new footwear all to itself. In fact, its designation has it not as part of Clarks Originals product line, but the company’s just established Clarks Sportswear product portfolio. In almost identical silhouette as the traditional Wallabee, Clarks applied materials more likely found on its sports footwear range. Gone is the gum rubber crepe sole and in its place, a EVA outsole in contrast white. Rather than suede or leather, most of the upper is now ballistic nylon and/or mesh, with the exception of the leather toe box. There is even a heel stabilizer tucked away right beneath the heel tab. A modern twist on an old classic, Clarks Sportswear Tawyer Mid is available now at Japanese retailer CHAPTER WORLD and other Clarks retail doors.
