In a world full of spin-offs, collabs, and limited editions, what could be better than the real thing? Sure, it might not make for a thrilling headline—‘Shoe Remains Same For Fifty Years’—but there’s a reason the Clarks Wallabee is still here. Its simplicity, its effortless poise, its unparalleled quality have kept it a staple of sure-footed style across the years, and across the globe. Thanks to that blank-canvas feel, millions of variations* have been painted upon it since its inception in 1968. But, brilliant as that may be, it’s time to take a moment for the original.

While we’re aware that the simple, coveted maple color never actually left, it’s been a while since it had a moment in the spotlight. Why? Well, it’s easy to take the Wallabee’s constituent parts for granted: the moccasin construction, hand-stitched apron toe, crepe rubber sole and suede leather all seem fairly low-key nowadays. But it’s that quiet quality, that self-assuredness, that’s seen the Wallabee adorn the feet of everyone from Wu-Tang Clan, to Oasis, to Drake.

That in itself deserves to be celebrated. So, why not make a day of it? On April 26th, alongside National Hairball Awareness Day, National Pretzel Day, and National Dissertation Day (yes, apparently these are all real), Clarks have initiated: the Wallabee Day. It’s a bit like being at a relative’s 104th birthday (wonder; nervousness; “wow, you’re still here!”), but a relative that, against all odds, you still want to hang out with. Clarks have certainly got some stories to tell—so, on the 26th this month, whether you’re brushing the fur of your feline friend, grabbing a doughy treat or hitting a coursework deadline, be sure to do it in Wallabees.

Shop the Clarks Originals Wallabee for men here, and for women here.
