It’s been 65 years since Nathan Clark created the Desert Boot, and the crepe-soled suede chukka is celebrating by revamping its image. In a collection called “Clarks: Rebooted,” Clarks enlisted 14 British and U.K.-based artists and designers to use the iconic shoe as a canvas, and the results will travel as an exhibition to Milan, New York, and London after debuting at Design Shanghai on March 27. Limited-edition pairs will be sold to benefit the Halo Trust, the world’s leading landmine-clearing agency. —Gabrielle Lipton
