Attn: Clarks Desert Mali At Topman

Looks like Topman is more than just good for nothing.  I wasn't expecting this, but these guys are the first US stockists to be selling the much buzzed about Clarks Desert Mali reissue that I know of.  Now before you start going bonkers and making it rain like you're at Pacman Jones' bachelor party, you should know that Topman is currently only stocking the leather versions - apologies to my suede soldiers out there.  The brown version looks great.  The black, not so much.  Both are pretty much Doc Martens for the crepe sole set.  The pricepoint has been floating around for a while so hopefully no one is caught off guard with the kinda off putting $178 tag.  This boot is quickly shaping up to be a must have for Desert Boot fanatics and something nice to look at for the rest of us.  Personally, I'll stick with what I've got.

[Editor's note: If you don't care about  shipping charges you can find another Mali colorway at Asos.]

  1. Hey L.A.S.,

    The link to you wearing your Clarks reminds of a good ol' time. It's called "What I Wore This Weekend. Whatever happened to WIWTW? It even inspired me to do it too (for a while atleast).

  2. 7 Days of Big Boi: Day 7

    Yeah, yeah

    She said her name was Tangerine, damn the American dream
    She all about her fuckin cream, so shake it like a tambourine
    Shake it like a tambourine - she shake it like a tambourine?
    Shake it like a tambourine - she shake it like a tambourine
    She said her was Billie Jean, said she wanna show me things
    I pulled out a stack of green, shake it like a tambourine
    Shake it like a tambourine - shake it like a tambourine
    Shake it like a tambourine - shake it like a tambourine

    Now, let's set it straight, LAWRENCE don't cuff or cake
    I, put her on a plate until she's no longer awake
    They just lay, fast asleep, when I hit 'em with the snake
    Put that venom up in 'em until I leave 'em with the shakes
    On display, she's a model but she only model shoes
    Not fake like a prosthetic leg or prostitute
    How she choose? She just whispers in my ear ("I'm with you")
    I'm the type of dude that sends your baby mama out for food
    And I also like her throat action, with a passion
    Love in her mou-outh, for dental satisfaction
    That means I hit the head like Greg Louganis then I'm splashin
    Ughhh, bust one back of the 'llac, stabbin (hootie hoo!)
    She know what's happenin, there's no reason to doubt it
    If you ask her how I got it she say ("How he had went about it was")
    And then you wake up from a bad dream, a nightmare
    Settle down cause she right there

    [Chorus One]

    Okay, midnight, fit like, four or five chicks
    in the drop '66 bumpin "Southernplayalistic"
    as we ridin through the city lights, Monday Magic City night
    Pass these around, momentarily they feelin like
    gettin right, good girls, got 'em gettin busy like
    big dykes, eatin so much pussy they forget pipe
    All got boyfriends, tell me they don't hit it right
    They come see me so they can come be freaks
    in the back seat, everything's fast like a track meet
    All I can see is titties, pussy lips and ass cheeks
    Actually, no exaggeration, no imaginin
    Real talk, my reality is yo' fantasy
    Keisha, Kim, Tamika, Shay, Alicia and Gloria
    Chasin this broad tryin to find euphoria
    Name notorious, dick game glorious
    Find me shawty when ya boyfriend borin ya

    Shake it like some Texas Pete droppin on your collard greens
    Make it hotter when she want a dollar, do you follow me?
    Shake it like a tambourine - shake it like a tambourine
    Shake it like a tambourine - shake it like a tambourine
    Smellin like some tangerines, rollin like she on some beans
    Garter belt full of greens, booty bustin out the seams
    Shake it like a tambourine - she shake it like a tambourine
    Shake it like a tambourine - watch her shake it like a tambourine

    Once upon a rhyme I knew this girl and she was fine
    as everything outdo's, the kind of girl I describe her like-like-like
    Michael Jordan when he's froze in a pose of a Jumpman
    Top flight security on these hoes man
    She drop it low only for me to pick her up
    When she's liquored up I'm leavin my fingerprints on her butt
    A ten-hut, at attention as we stand for this woman
    General Patton, boy stop, we think she cummin
    Lovin the way that I'm dickin her down, Boi you bluffin
    Nothin but a nigga like me be straight up royal flushin
    But this ain't 'bout playin no cards dummy
    Her give me open mouth sugar and she go hard for me
    Even take a charge for me, if the coppers caught us ridin
    to get a tray of fruit, and a pack of 1-point-5's and
    I'm all the way on them papers, she all the way on my team
    We burn it down like California trees in the breeze
    Fire!

    [Chorus One]

    [Outro]
    Shake shake it, shake shake it, shake shake it, shake shake it
    Shake shake it, shake shake that ass
    Shake shake it, shake shake it, shake shake it, shake shake it
    Shake shake it, shake shake that, shake that
    Work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work (and all my ladies go to)
    Work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work (shake shake it, shake that ass)

  3. TSF- I'm happy you liked those features, but I try not to blog on the weekends anymore. Only time will tell if it comes back.

    BB- You're satisfied now? Great. Your commitment is noteworthy, but can we now stop with the relatively pointless copy and pasting?

  8. Guessing another man's "kit" is not something anyone should do in any sort of public forum. Come on dude.

  9. Looks like Asos has a US site with free shipping and free returns - price seems to be a relatively decent $150.00 or thereabouts.

    I may wait and see if I can get them for half of that - I've already got a 2 pairs of desert boots/suede chukkas, both with crepe soles. So no hurry at this point....

  10. Looks like Topman is more than just good for nothing. I wasn't expecting this, but these guys are the first US stockists to be selling the much buzzed about Clarks Shoes Sale Mali reissue that I know of. Now before you start going bonkers and making it rain like you're at Pacman Jones' bachelor party, you should know that Topman is currently only stocking the leather versions - apologies to my suede soldiers out there.
