HANON x Clarks Tanner Mid Ventile

As Summer draws to a close, we usher in the impending Autumn season with a brand new technical-focused collaboration to protect you from the elements. Teaming up with the almost two-century-old iconic footwear brand Clarks Originals, HANON have reinterpreted their Tanner Mid using Ventile®.
The Tanner Mid was released as part of Clarks’ hybrid range where the brand fused simple Originals inspired uppers with a contemporary sole unit to create a successful formula which also included the release of the HANON Traxter in 2013. For this project, we have reworked the entire upper with an old school performance fabric by English textile company Ventile® as well as including a matching set of gaiters.
Ventile® was originally developed during the war for fighter pilot suits and is a fully water-resistant fabric which is lightweight and constructed entirely from untreated cotton. Developed today for performance outerwear, the material's unique properties are found in the densely woven yarn that expands to create a shield when in contact with water. As a result, Ventile®, whilst having the natural feel that cotton provides, offers excellent protection against the elements.
Our iteration of the Clarks Tanner Mid comes dressed in an army green Ventile® upper paired with a pull-up leather application on the vamp and tongue, contrasted by pull-up perforated brown leather inlays on the collar. The upper is sat on the Vibram® Hybrid Cup sole unit which was conceived as an exclusive for Clarks and features microscopic texture to enhance grip, a large heel for improved stability, EVA midsole for lightness and shock absorption, a toe spring profile and asymmetrical heel for natural rolling, and the Vibram® XS Trek compound providing traction and comfort for use on unpredictable terrain.
Additional design features to the HANON Tanner Mid include a leather button down lace placket for gaiter attachment, buttermilk leather lining with a purple high gloss dual branded screened OrthoLite® memory footbed, contrasting purple hits throughout, and an extra lace set. Collaborative branded detail appears via a debossed HANON Flame logo on the tongue, debossed leather heel strip, dual branded woven tongue label and Ventile® branding on the collar.
Each pair will come with a set of Ventile® gaiters which feature digi camo lining, Velcro® closure, and a purple heel pull, as well as a matching digi camo dust bag.
The HANON x Clarks Tanner Mid Ventile is released to an edition of 72 pairs and will be made available via an ONLINE RAFFLE which will end on Friday 3rd September.
