Clarks Originals are of the moment. Always have been. Always will be. From iconic styles that have never gone out of fashion to designs that are right for the times. Classics are revived and replicated, legends reinterpreted. Stunning new looks are inspired as much by our past as by the here and now. And superb materials from the four corners of the globe are fused with the signature Originals crepe sole. For men and for women there is nothing quite like Clarks Originals. Never has been. Never will be.
The Clarks Originals original. The Desert Boot was designed in 1949 by Nathan Clark and launched at the Chicago Shoe Fair a year later. Its inspiration was a crepe-soled boot made from rough suede in Cairo’s fabled Old Bazaar and the footwear of choice for off-duty Eighth Army officers. The simple lines and conspicuous comfort were an instant hit and the first ever casual shoe was born. The rest. as they say. is history. Often imitated but never bettered. Sometimes different but in spirit always the same. Long live the Originals Desert Boot.
