Seminal dub & reggae label celebrates legacy of British shoe

Trojan Records and Clarks mark the 40th anniversary of the Desert Trek by imprinting the classic British hides with the Trojan Records logo — celebrating the indelible link between England and Jamaica. Founded by Lee Gopthal in 1968 to channel the music of Duke Reid to hungry English youth, Trojan Records fed ska, reggae, dub, and rocksteady to the skinhead and mod cultures of the post-60s. Legendary names like King Tubby, Desmond Dekker, Lee Perry and more were introduced to the West via Trojan, and Clarks has finally caught on. Rich and supple leather uppers cover the signature center seam design — all the comfort of the British classics with an homage to the music that keeps the kingdom strong. There are two versions of the shoe, one in suede without the logo (below) and the other is in leather (above) with the logo imprinted on the heel. They will be available worldwide by September.
