Lessons Learned From Lucien Carr

Every man needs an appropriate shoe to wear for 2am sets at the Village Vanguard and drinking beers with Freddie Redd while talking about when bop's drug of choice was heroin. Supreme comes correct with four exclusive versions of the Clarks Desert Mali Low made of all leather—upper, lining and insole!—and slick dark crepe. Redd would check 'em and know you're not some square. He'd open up. Soon you'd know more than the directors of the connection.

In the Desert Mali Low, Supreme disrupts our beliefs about Clarks models. White after labor day? Fucking right. Kill your icons. Create a new agenda that doesn't adhere to the books of decorum sold at Brooks Brothers. Wear black shoes with a navy suit. Assert some downtown cool. Rock navy blue with a black suit. Allow Supreme to filter beyond you favorite street style outfit and into your evening attire. Punctuate denim with a burgundy pop. Let art lead. Don't think twice about carving up the old and pushing forth with the new. Just do it! And don't give two shits about the consequences.

Supreme x Clarks will be available in store (NY, LA, London) and online on November 7th.
