Raheem Sterling returns to Clarks for third collaboration.
Following two hotly anticipated drops, much-loved Clarks collaborator and Global Brand Ambassador Raheem Sterling has co-designed via his fashion brand SIXTEEN NINETY TWO (a reference to the birth date of Kingston, Jamaica) yet another cult style, modelled on the Wallabee™ Boot. The design fuses technical detailing and sturdy finishes with subtle Jamaican cues – blending outdoor-ready style with Raheem’s heritage.
For Raheem’s third collaboration with Clarks, the Premier League and England football star imbues the signature Wallabee Boot with modern flair and Jamaican references. Utilitarian, fresh and primed for cool adventures, it’s made from technical quilted nylon and features adjustable lace toggles for a snug fit.
The rubber outsole and lining mix things up with bright pops of orange, while the topstitching and signature crepe mid sole capture Clarks Originals unmistakeable craft. To round the silhouette up, considered features – from the ‘Est 1692’ branded fob and tag to the Jamaican coat of arms foil on the heel counter – bring everything back to Raheem’s cultural heritage, celebrating the spirit of Jamaica.
Raheem Sterling for Clarks will be available to buy in-store in Berwick, Manchester, Osaka, Tokyo and Beijing from 1st December 2023.

Raheem Sterling needs no introduction – he’s won a slate of trophies and a kingdom of fans as he’s become one of the finest footballers of our time. He’s also established himself as a style icon, both through partnerships like this as well as his fashion brand. In 2021, he founded his brand SIXTEEN NINETY TWO, with the debut menswear collection presented at London Fashion Week. The label’s name refers to the birth of modern Kingston when an earthquake destroyed Jamaica’s former capital Port Royal – signifying strength and evolution while weaving in Raheem’s Jamaican heritage.
