The Ugly Gorgeous Shoes For You!

'Follow me Wu Tang gotta be, the best thing since stocks in Clarks Wallabees'
Method Man (Gravel Pit)

'You wanna pull a heist draw guns and robberies,
you wanna rock rep, step in yellow Wallabees'
Raekwon (C.R.E.A.M)

Chances are you don't know about the Clarks Grasshopper, but the Desert Boots' poor cousin is an iconic shoe. Initially rejected in Europe, they were shipped to America and renamed 'the Wallabee' where they proved very popular with rappers who used them as a riposte to the Timberland Boots sported by rivals. Championed by the Wu-Tang Clan and Reggae artists alike, they became and remain a crepe soled wonder to easily rival the Desert Boot.
