The new FAT Gumbee II Wallabee takes me back to a more simpler nostalgic time, a time were hip hop was culturally relevant, dirty was cool and everyone had one pant leg rolled up. If you long for these now passed times and your still bumping your copy of 36 Chambers then these kicks might help you channel the times. Coming in the classic Wallabee silhouette and in a bold red color these can be found in select retailers.
Perhaps dreamed into existence by noted Wallabee enthusiast Ghostface Killah, this collaboration between Clark’s and Barbour is just a sample, not intended for production. It’s a shame, too – the cracked, burgundy leather piping and heel appliqué are awfully fresh, and the classic Wallabee shape paired with the gritty durability of Barbour’s fabrics would make any collaboration a must-own. Here’s hoping this sample is a sign of things to come – keep your ears to the ground for news of a production run.
