If you thought Clarks was good only for its classic desert boots, the innovative Clarks Trigenics Collection ought to change your mind — and in short order. Taking the brand’s DNA and penchant for easygoing, easily wearable classics, the Trigenics Collection features touches both new and old, recognizable and unique — and that’s why we’d recommend you pick up a pair as soon as you can.
With design details found more commonly on pieces like the brand’s laidback Clarks Wallabee, the Trigenics Collection introduces a decidedly more modern look and feel to Clarks’ lineup of timeless style. It starts right at the ground level, with the Trigenic Flex outsole. The outsole features three parts geared to move with your foot — they’re flexible, lightweight and practically begging to be paired with light wash jeans or slim khaki chinos.
From the Trigenics Flow in crisp vegetable-tanned leather — a shoe that mimics a classic ankle boot or high-top — to the dressier Trigen Wing, you’ve got options aplenty if you’re seeking out a summer footwear upgrade. From a hot summer wedding to a crisp-yet-casual day at the office, nearly any pick in the Trigenic Collection should perform admirably.
And with head-turning design details like raised moccasin stitching and colors more commonly found on your favorite sneakers (such as the sharp, white leather Trigenic Flex), you won’t find a similar pair of footwear on the market this season. The brand says the shoes blend a “streamlined finish” and a “futuristic aesthetic,” and they’re entirely right. If you’ve thought about trading in your driving loafers or suede chukka boots — or even your classic white canvas low-tops — for something just a bit different this season, these are the way to go.
With seven different color options available for the Trigenic Flex in particular, you’ve got plenty of ways to go in terms of style, whether you team the white leather pair with faded denim and a slim-fit henley or match up the veg tan leather Trigenic Flex with navy chinos and a grey blazer for a mix of high-low, sporty style.
It’s an unexpected and welcome offering from a brand that’s done the same thing so well for so long — and it looks like the Clarks Trigenics Collection just might be the latest accomplishment to join the brand’s essential line of stylish footwear.
