When one thinks of Clarks shoes, you usually don't associate them with Drake. But mister Champagne Papi himself has taken on a collab with Clarks under his clothing brand and multidisciplinary label OVO (October’s Very Own). Together, they are redesigning the Clarks Wallabee, a suede moccasin boot that's considered a signature style for the long-standing mens brand. They were considered a '70s cult classic, and even donned by the Wu-Tang Clan. If they’re getting a makeover from Drake, it’ll be hard to convince anyone that the Wallabee is not fashion.

The revamped shoe comes in four colorways: beige, black, a soft greyish blue, and a bright burnt orange. Each pair is imprinted with mini OVO logos, and comes with a removable fringed tag with the OVO Owl branded in gold. The boot is made of Italian suede and trimmed with leather, with an amber crepe sole. The Wallabee comes in children's and adult's sizes, and will be sold in Clarke stores and on OVO starting on Friday, April 27. Check out some images of the collaboration below.
