Inspired by the aesthetics of the 60s of the last century, the English brand Clarks has released an exciting collection of The Race for Space. This project was created in collaboration with the most innovative designer of our day - the Englishman Christopher Reburn.
Futuristic design, an innovative approach to traditional elements of shoes, a massive white sole that refers us to space moon rovers are the main characteristics of this collection. Contrary to the visual perception, this shoe is practically weightless; innovative technologies and materials were used in its development.
The collection presents the only female model of sports-style sandals Zarya Solo. The woven upper of the sandals penetrates many leather cords, the model is equipped with a leather insole and flexible sole, which provide an extremely comfortable fit on the foot.
As part of the men's collection, the designer developed two categories of shoes that bear names that are familiar to our ears: Molniya Free sandals and Laika sneakers.
An ideal fit on the foot, unlimited possibilities for adjusting belts and a luxurious sole, the traces of which are copies of those that people first left on the moon - all this was reflected in the Molniya Free model.
As part of the Laika sneaker line, the designer presents three completely ethereal models, the creation of which he was inspired by the Russian space suit Sokol.
Laika Zip - a model made of white Italian leather equipped with a modern lining from Faytex Dri-Freeze Fantasia - with high breathability characteristics, the sole is made of ultra-light modern EVA material. Unusual zipper closure for sneakers, laconic top and bright details make this model really memorable against the background of ordinary sneakers.
The main detail of Laika Step is an elastic upper that resembles the flexible elements of space suits. The breathable lining traditional for the collection and the ultra-light EVA midsole are a guarantee of comfort.
A large number of thin straps Laika Run - another option for integrating space design into everyday life.
