Clark's shoes must be one of the oldest brands in the existence. Believe it or not, Clark's opened for business in 1825 as a business that tanned sheepskin rugs. The company was founded by Cyrus Clark, in a village called Street in Somerset, England. Cyrus's brother James joined the company in 1830, and it was he who ushered in the company's new shoe line.

About Clark's Shoes

Originally, Clark's Shoes made shoes with the sheepskins that they were tanning for use in rugs. In 1856, Clark's purchased one of the first (newly invented) Singer sewing machines, and production exploded. Clark's shoes were some of the first to be designed to conform to the shape of the foot, allowing them to boast of their ability to make "foot friendly shoes."

Now in their 178th year, Clark's Shoes has become one of the world's leading shoe companies. They are currently ranked as the number one shoe retailer in the United Kingdom. They offer a complete line of men's, women's, and children's shoes in all the major categories: dress, casual, and sports.

Clark's Shoes are also available in several premium lines. They shoes are broken up into the following categories: Active Air, Waterproof for Men, Flex24 and Springers for Women. The shoes in each of these categories are made with patented technology, and offer the consumer style as well as a level of function not available in other shoe lines.
