Clarks are once again teaming up with Record Store Day, putting together a line of tune-inspired footwear and bagging the services of Californian indie-pop maestros Best Coast in the process.
As part of Clarks’ Originals collection for 2013, the veritable shoe makers will be putting together a line of bold, colourful patent leather Desert Boots for guys and girls, as well as pumps for the ladies too. Incorporating a vinyl print line motif in our favourite mens’ pair (pictured above), each pair also includes raised concentric circle detailing, just like the grooves of a vinyl record.
As well as putting out a limited edition vinyl of their own to mark the partnership, Best Coast will also be playing a one off LA gig for Clarks on Record Store Day 2013 (the precise date remains a closely guarded secret). Those not among the lucky few able to bag a ticket will be able to stream the entire gig online at www.clarksoriginals.com.
“This is the next chapter in the on-going story of Clarks Originals and our hugely successful association with music,” says Gemma Green, Clarks marketing manager.
“We are delighted to collaborate with US band Best Coast, supporting Record Store Day 2013. The partnership results iin an exclusive track produced on vinyl and a limited edition Desert Boot – both timeless classics that stand the test of time. record Store Day and its spirit is the perfect alignment for Clarks Originals.”
Keep an eye out for the boots to touch down early next Spring, ahead of April 2013’s Record Store Day festivities.
