Clarks Originals' Retro Desert Boot Honors National Record Day 2013

In Our Inbox...

When one of our relatives-celebrated his 31st B-day wearing out his brand new, box set of Beatles tunes-in all its vinyl record glory---on his new/old recharged stereo turntable/speakers/receiver- that probably belonged to someone's grandfather at one point... 

----it didn't surprise us when we got the 411 on an (a)- actually Record Store Day that "...celebrates the culture of the independent record stores..." and (b)- that the desire for authentic-ism ---by consuming consumers-has led to the sale of 1.7 million pairs of Clarks Originals Desert Boot-in the past five years alone.

And why not? A bunch of limited edition kicks (in fun shiny hot pink, electric blue and black, matte black and an all-over record pattern),  and a sponsored live stream concert by Best Coast---to celebrate the vinyl record of this surf-rock California duo...gets going on THE DAY- April 20th.
