Clarks Originals is one of the oldest standing icons in footwear. The heritage of this English shoe manufacturer is as iconic as it is unexpected. Turn back time to 1825, two brothers from Somerset, England set out to create shoes in a very unconventional way. They made slippers from the cut-offs of rugs. Sustainable before sustainability was even in the dictionary. Throughout the decades, Clarks have created robust, quality styles for anyone between soldiers and students.
