Goods & Services has unveiled its latest project, a custom take on the Clarks Originals Wallabee in “Navy Sashiko.” Specializing in creating hand-crafted footwear from its workshop, Goods & Services, led by Rory Fortune, crafts everything from Air Maxes with fully custom midsoles and reworked Rick Owens Geobaskets to fully handmade vintage military-style shoes and custom leather mules.
The one-off customs feature intricate Japanese Sashiko stitching on deep indigo suede. Geometric patchwork patterns harken back to traditional Boro textiles while the toe box and collars arrive in a clean solid finish. The tongue section is fixed with a tasseled kilte secured via bespoke leather laces and additional dot-stitched overlays secure the mudguard and heel counter sections. Finishing off the look are Vibram ripple soles redone with vegetable-tanned leather welt, which replace the classic rubber crepe soles.
Take a look at the customs above. Inquiries can be made via DM or appointment at the Goods & Services LA Workshop. more on Goods & Services and Rory Fortune can be found on our recent installment of Sole Mates.
