How it's made
Clarks is a British shoe manufacturer founded in 1825 in Somerset, when Cyrus and James Clark made a slipper from sheepskin off-cuts.
We carry shoes from the Clarks Originals line, consisting of iconic shoe styles such as the Wallabee and Desert Trek. Known for their crepe rubber soles and soft suedes. The leather is tanned by Charles F. Stead, a renowned English tannery in Leeds. The shoes are made in Vietnam.
Love & Care
Protect your investment
Like many materials found in footwear and apparel, crepe rubber soles can be damaged by exposure to concentrated heat or extreme temperatures. Do not leave your shoes in direct sunlight for extended periods or in closed cars on hot days. If your shoes become wet, allow them to air dry slowly, away from direct heat.
Simply clean your suede Clarks Originals with a clean damp cloth, this especially important to do if they've been exposed to salty slush during winter. Allow to dry.
For stains and spots, a crepe brush easily removes stains while preserving the nep of the suede. If needed for tougher stains, use a leather cleaner.
Add extra protection to preserve your footwear. Saphir's Super Invulner spray waterproofs the most delicate leathers, and offers superior protection against water, stains and grease. This will protect your shoes from water and dirt.
Clarks Originals fit true to size on most customers, but some prefer to size Wallabees down half a size. Your feet should be able to move freely without your toes hitting the edge of the footbed.
