Popcaan’s Undying Love For Clarks
Popcaan said he fell in love with Clarks from as early as childhood but, unfortunately, could not afford it then. Fast forward to years later, he can sport them as he pleases.
“Wearing a pair of Clarks makes you a part of the street culture, so when politicians and them wear Clarks they think it’s cool to the streets,” he said.
“The brand means a lot to my culture so it’s naturally a part of Jamaican history known worldwide. We all take to it and I guess as kids live, they’ll learn.”
Clarks Dancehall Collection
In August, Clarks launched “The Dancehall Collection” to pay homage to the genre and Jamaica for fully embracing the British shoemaker’s iconic styles.
Released on August 22, 2023, the collection saw the Wallabee and Wallabee Boot silhouettes in new designs consisting of the colors green, blush pink, and blue, which are said to be reminiscent of the island’s bold culture.
Besides the introduction of the Wallabee Boot in Cactus Green, Clarks Original’s Desert Trek and Desert Boot were “also altered to include the usage of premium suedes and tonal embroidered stripes that subtly nod to the pinstriped suits found on old photographs taken of dancehall goers.
