When one thinks of MF DOOM, one usually only conjures up images of that metal mask. The rest of the man’s attire is never considered. But apparently, the masked supervillain’s also got a soft spot for shoes, which explains his recent collaboration with Clarks Originals.
DOOM was approached and asked to co-create an updated version of his favorite Clarks Original, adding “reflective, metal-like stitching” to the Wallabee, and the “mask logo embossed in to the heel of the shoe.”
The rapper will also be releasing an exclusive remix and video for Clarks, to be released on March 13. In the meantime, watch a short documentary on DOOM’s creative process, with him explaining why he decided to collaborate with Clarks, and his love affair with shoes below.
