Between 1964 and 1987 Padmore & Barnes was owned by Clarks, and when the Wallabee was introduced in 1967 it was made at their Kilkenny factory. For the next 20 years the Irish shoe manufacturer produced what is often considered the finest version of this style. The Wallabee is still part of the Clarks offering today, but like so many iconic designs it has drifted from its original form over the years. During this time Padmore & Barnes have quietly continued to make their own option, and those wanting the best possible rendition of this classic silhouette should look no further than the P204 and P404 models.
