Manchester based Oi Polloi has teamed up with British shoe brand Clarks Originals to revamp their classic 'Wallabee' shoe, creating The Wallabee Ridge which has a distinct 1960's influence. Available in some new shades including light mustard and a deep chestnut, the new design looks thick and durable. Crafted from 'Unicorn' (elk) leather, the versatile new style is a classic and also an easy to wear casual design - just add skinny jeans and your favourite t-shirt. Speaking on the collaboration, the company commented on how the revamped design came about: "When tasked with creating a variation on one of our favourite shoes, we were initially stumped. How to improve on a design as classic as the Clarks Wallabee? Something special was in order — ‘Unicorn Leather‘ — the name given to elk hides by the specialist tannery tasked with producing the raw materials. As with all deer and antelope skins, the resulting leather is naturally very soft."

Clarks explain that the leather used in the new shoes is completely unique and each hide has gone through a full process to create the softest and highest quality foundation for the design: "When using hides from wild animals, there are always plenty of scars and scratches on the leather. The tannery have rightly made a feature of this natural quality, accentuating it with the use of aniline dye. Aniline dyed leathers are tumbled for up to 12 hours, in order to enhance the subtle variations of each hide and ensure a vibrant colour." The Oi Polloi for Clarks Originals Wallabee design is available now.
