In keeping with Clarks’ odd colour descriptions for their desert boots here is a new colour for AW 2012/13 - Amber Gold. Tobacco or light snuff by any other description, it’s a classic vintage colour with not too much dye on the crepe sole edges.
So far they’ve called a loden green ‘tobacco’, black green ‘loden’, snuff ‘cola’, the honey suede ‘maple’, the coca cola coloured dark brown is just, well, brown. Let’s not even mention ‘wolf’ that is really the colour of … ‘mices’.
Still at least they’ve inroduced a classic colour this time amongst the many appalling motor home style carpet material and hideous britpop finishes.
