View all 12 Photos

Clarks: Rebooted celebrates the 65th anniversary of the original Clarks Desert Boot. Collaboratively developed with art curator Filippo Tattoni-Marcozzi, the collection includes fourteen artist-edition shoes, each created by a different British artist or designer. The first three kicks to launch are designed by Frank Bowling, TOOGOOD, and Thomas J. Price, respectively, and range in style from a fuzzy cutout statement piece to a classic boot reimagined with pastel blue detailing. The trio will be available from Clarks USA starting April 13, 2015. In the coming months, the footwear is scheduled to embark on an international tour stopping in Shanghai, Milan, New York, and London. Notably, the homecoming event in England includes a gala and auction for The HALO Trust, a landmine removal organization.
