Worn by renowned personalities from Nick Cave to Bob Dylan through to Dizzee Rascal or Robbie Williams, Clarks is currently the number one shoe brand in the world, having bet strongly on research and develpment since the 70’s and launched highly successful collections from seventies’ Polyledts to the current Active Air. The story of this legacy brand dates back to 1825 when James Clark, who was working at his brother’s tannery came up with the idea of creating sheepskin slippers, something which proved a great success. Thus began a success story and the relentless rise of an appealing brand ever since for the whole family, a brand that has “tapped to the beat of crooners, rockers, britpoppers and hip hoppers which has walked, marched, strode and sashayed through an ever-changing world.”
