Since their inception as the brainchild of two English brothers in 1825, Clarks has been providing high quality men’s shoes that combine peerless craftsmanship, a spirit of innovation, and enduring style. Clarks shoes and boots are more than just a fashion staple, although they are certainly that. Clarks footwear is serviceable, high quality, and built to last, helping you walk confidently everywhere from the beach to the boardroom.
It all began in Street, Somerset, where James and Cyrus Clark operated a family-owned tannery. One day, James had the bright idea to fashion the leftover skins into slippers, and the rest is history. Soon the Clark brothers were selling 1000 pairs a week, showcasing their footwear at technological exhibitions, and winning awards for their innovation and entrepreneurship. The Clarks company still has its headquarters in the small village of Street, and they still hold to the values and ideals that guided their founders: combine modern resources and tools with classic style and the finest materials in order to produce the very best shoes available. Clarks has registered more than 100 patents over two centuries, proof of their commitment to stay at the forefront of shoe technology and provide you with footwear that suits the needs of the modern man.
The legendary Clarks Desert Boot, one of Clarks’ most iconic styles, was designed by Nathan Clark in the late 1940s. He modeled it after the boots his fellow army officers purchased in the bazaars of Cairo for off-duty wear, believing that the durability, comfort, and simple elegance of the boots would make them an instant classic—and he was right! The Desert Boot, hailed as the original “dress casual shoe,” is just one of many great Clarks shoes for men. Clarks also offers dress boots, outdoor boots, loafers, sandals, sneakers, lace-ups, and derbies. Whether it’s date night or relaxing with friends, a business meeting or a day on the trail, there’s a Clarks shoe to keep you comfortable, confident, and effortlessly stylish in any situation.
