Known for breaking onto the New York hip-hop scene in the 90's, DOOM has since made a name for himself as the ‘Metal-Faced Villain’. With acclaimed collaborations with the likes of Danger Mouse, Ghostface and Thom Yorke to name just a few, this is an artist that needs no introduction.
As we wrote last week in our in-depth look at MF DOOM, it’s clear he is still passionate about having a creative outlet in music. For this collaboration with Clarks Originals, DOOM travelled to the home of Clarks, to capture the sounds of Street. Working with the recordings he made, DOOM has prepared an exclusive track remix that will be launched online. This will be followed by an exclusive video, created to coincide with the track.
This exclusive remix is to coincide with the Metal Fingered Villain becoming an 'Originals Pioneer', co-creating a new version of his favourite Clarks Originals shoe. He quickly chose the Wallabee - a shoe that boasts a long heritage with the hip-hop community he has been a part of for twenty years. Carefully considering every element of this design, DOOM has added reflective, metal-like stitching and his mask logo, embossed into the heel of the shoe.
The Clarks Originals x MF DOOM will be launching Friday 14th
February at 8:00am GMT via direct links on our Facebook and Twitter pages, priced at £150 in UK sizes 7 – 10.
