British label, You Must Create or also known as YMC has recently showed their latest collaborative footwear with fellow british company, Clarks (Originals). Spotted at Pitti, the footwear collection consists of Desert Boot and Penny Loafer. I think this is such a good outcome from both Clarks Originals and YMC.
