Bad to the Bone: The Clarks Originals Desert Trek Celebrates Its 50th Anniversary
Release: 26 November 2022

Colourway: 50th Anniversary

The Desert Trek is undoubtedly one of Clarks Originals’ very finest creations. Originally appearing in the 1970s, the legendary model is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year with a very special edition guaranteed to turn heads.

Manufactured in premium, flannel-like sand suede from the Charles F Stead tannery in Leeds, the Desert Trek Hi features the iconic tongue-to-toe central seam and painted natural rubber crep soles – an aesthetic hallmark of the cult classic shoe.

Of course, emblazoned with the affectionately dubbed ‘Trek Man’ on the heels (often interpreted as a thief with a bag of loot over his shoulder), the Desert Trek also comes with a gold Stead’s logo stamped on the insoles. Two signature Clarks fobs with exclusive 50th-anniversary logos add a luxurious touch, while an extra pair of laces provide customisation options.

A beloved model the world over, the Clarks Desert Trek has been adopted by many subcultures across its 50-year tenure, including the British mods and Jamaican rude boys shortly after its inception.

Still striking the perfect balance between sneakers and dress shoes, there’s no better time to add another Clarks Desert Trek to your rotation.

The Trek Hi 50th will release at Clarks and select retailers across the globe.
