TOWER x SAMUEL SAGUA
. . .
Last week we linked up with Samuel Sagua (@samuelsagua), a sneaker aficionado, reviewer, videographer and all-round footwear appreciator to look over the Clarks Originals Trigenic range. Having recently launched the newest Trigenic silhouette, the Evo, this firm favourite has been fresh on our minds
First dropping in 2016, the Trigenic Flex quickly made waves to become another staple Clarks’ silhouette. Although a sneaker, the Trigenic never feels too off-brand for the British footwear company. There’s some obvious synergy between this innovative aesthetic and Clarks’ more heritage styles, i.e. the use of a moccasin construction that takes inspiration from the iconic Wallabee. Magic is spotted in the outsole, which is constructed from three decoupled parts that flex and bend with the natural movement of the wearer, ensuring comfort and adding to the unusual aesthetic

Why did you get into sneakers (& footwear in general)?
“I got into sneakers first through football in secondary school – I was fascinated by the materials and technical features as well as the history of the boots. I slowly ventured into runners and more lifestyle shoes over time but started ‘collecting’ at 18 when I started working and I would post mini ‘reviews’ online to share my passion for footwear“
Why did you pick the Clarks Trigenic?
“I chose the Trigenic Flex because of its unique design and premium materials like suede + leather – also because it’s Goretex – waterproof gives me that peace of mind when it rains. The Trigenic midsole is very comfortable and with lots of flexibility!“
