Clarks Originals looks to the iconic, the authentic, and the individual; the footwear inspired by Clarks’ origins that are a true reflection of their craft. Founded almost 200 years ago when Cyrus and James Clark made a slipper from sheepskin off-cuts, a groundbreaking innovation at the time, Clarks have gone on to become one of the most ubiquitous shoe brands in the world. This innovation and invention remain at the core of what Clarks do. Every shoe begins with a last carved by hand from a single block of hornbeam, paired with a scientific, engineering-focused approach to the biomechanics of the foot which is placed at the heart of the design. It’s no wonder they have an archive of more than 20,000 styles. Brand staples include the often imitated, but never bettered, Desert Boot as well as the fan-favourite and sublimely comfortable Wallabee, both comprised of authentic English suede with signature Originals crepe soles.
