Clarks and Footpatrol unveil the ‘Tawyer FP’ trainer
British footwear brand Clarks has collaborated with London sneaker store Footpatrol to create the Tawyer FP, a hybrid trainer that infuses the Clarks original Wallabees with fresh design undertones inspired by street style and sportswear.
After researching on a number of techniques, Footpatrol’s designer Asheeba Charles opted for a traditional weaving design of suede complemented by reflective threaded laces and beads. The Tawyer FP (which became available from 28 September 2013) comes in two models: a sand version available in sneakers store worldwide and a limited-edition multicoloured version (anchored by blue as the main shade) that is exclusive to Footpatrol.
