Pioneering Shoe Makers Since 1825

We've been industry pioneers ever since Cyrus and James Clark used sheepskin off-cuts to make slippers in the shadow of Glastonbury's ancient Tor. Ceaselessly creating the decades since have been spent pushing the boundaries of shoe making and craftsmanship.

Our Brand Attributes

Because we know how important the little things really are. That's why we've spent the last 170 years making sure kids feet have everything they need to stay happy and healthy. Specialists in foot development, we were the first brand to give growing toes the space they need to develop, inventing half sizes and width fittings, and supporting them from their very first step.

Fashions come and fashions go, but we're Clarks and we stand apart. Then. Now. Always.

A New Direction

Our founders were visionaries, and we've always felt a resonsibility to stay true to their values. That's why we'll only ever be about one thing - shoes. Our shoes. THey symbolise who we are. They define us. They're what we do best.

So, our future is clear - we'll continue to make iconic shoes, that last. We'll nurture and celebrate our innate and isatiable curiosity so that we can create in new, more exiting, more sustainable ways. Now and long into the future.
