Raheem Sterling Pays Homage To Jamaica With His Latest Clarks Collaboration

Honouring Sterling's roots in Kingston, Jamaica...

Known as one of the best-dressed players in the Premier League, Raheem Sterling has been able to carve out his own space in fashion alongside his record as one of the finest football players of his generation. Born in Kingston, Jamaica in December of 1994 before moving to the UK at the age of 5, Sterling’s rich cultural heritage is present in all that he does and led to his long-standing partnership with Clarks Originals. Sterling designed his first collaborative shoe with Clarks Originals in 2020 and was named a Global Brand Ambassador just last year.

This week Sterling presents his third collaboration with Clarks Originals, launching his own take on the iconic Desert Trek Hi Wallabee boot. The design is a celebration of the footballer’s deep roots in Jamaica, with subtle nods to the country present all over the shoe, from a special ‘Est 1692’ fob that honours the year his hometown of Kingston was founded, to a Jamaican coat of arms foil on the heel counter. 

The boot also boasts some impressive technical elements including being crafted from technical quilted nylon, adjustable lace toggles for a snug fit, and a rubber outsole and lining with bright pops of orange to give a fresh edge to its utilitarian elements, while the topstitching and signature crepe mid sole capture the unmistakable craft of Clarks Originals. 

‘Raheem Sterling for Clarks’ will be available to buy in select Clarks Originals stores from 1st December 2023.
