The Clarks legend began in 1825 and is the product of a long and eventful history peppered with journeys and innovations and carried along by styles such as the Desert Boot and the Wallabee. Forty years after these iconic styles were created, the Clarks Originals label still carefully cultivates the style and design that made the company's name, but the Clarks brand as a whole is now more focused on today… and tomorrow. The styles and materials used add a contemporary and playful touch with patent leather, heels of all heights, low boots and Mary Janes for women, and Derbys, brogues and loafers for men. With soles made of gum or a mixture of leather and gum, Clarks shoes are just as comfortable as their crepe-soled cousins. The Active Air system protects your every step thanks to the shock-absorbing air cushion underneath the insole. The Clarks range has maintained its own demanding standards which have become the hallmarks of the brand, while successfully venturing into new dimensions of style and design. Because every step with Clarks is a step in the right direction!
