Clarks Gives The Wallabee A Winter-Ready GTX Upper & A Grippy Vibram Sole

Sep 20, 2021

Over the years, Clarks has adapted the iconic Wallabee for any number of different looks, giving it cupped soles, patterned uppers, and woven toe boxes in order to broaden its appeal. If anything, the variety is a testament to the boot’s versatility, proof that it’s good for far more than its classic suede finish. Case in point: the Wallabee 2.0 GTX.

Billed as the toughest, most hard-wearing Wallabee to date, the 2.0 GTX combines heritage style with cutting-edge materials in a package that’s perfect for the coming winter months. Up top, Clarks has given it an insulated GORE-TEX upper, ensuring total waterproof performance during day-to-day wear. Complemented by a set of rope-like laces and a pull-tab at the heel, it cuts quite the street-ready hiking silhouette. Below, it also gets an all-weather update, now riding on a grippy Vibram outsole for improved arch support as well as upgraded underfoot traction. Not wanting to forget the Wallabee’s original intent, however, Clarks has topped off the entire package with some finessed black leather and suede accents. In other words, this is one boot that’s as functional as it is fashionably inclined.

Available now in black and brown colorways, it even comes with a set of triple branded pull tags hanging from the laces. You can buy the Wallabee 2.0 GTX for $250 over on the Clarks website.

Purchase: $250
