Clarks Shoes

Description:

Nearly two hundred years ago, Cyrus and James Clark made a slipper from sheepskin off-cuts at the family tannery. At the time it was ground-breaking. Today, Clarks sells nearly 48 million pairs of shoes in 90 countries and is the world's largest casual and smart shoe company and the fourth largest footwear company on the planet.

Established in 1825 in Street, Somerset, the Clarks archive now contains more than 22,000 styles of shoes. One of their most iconic styles in the Desert Boot. Designed by Nathan Clark, it was launched in 1950. A new British factory is due to open in 2019 following demand for made in UK products.
