SHOEMAKERS SINCE 1825:
Our story began almost 200 years ago when Cyrus and James Clark made a shoe from leftover sheepskin cuts. In that moment it was something of a breakthrough; a combination of innovation and raftsmanship that has remained at the heart of what we do. And although now, as always, each pair of our shoes begins with a hand carved piece from single block of wood, the incorporation of advanced techniques of assembly together with new technologies and materials, helps us to deliver the “perfection made to measure” for the modern World.
PIONEERS AND INNOVATIVES:
From the beginning we have always thought differently. And we have also done things differently. From the shoe created by Cyrus and James Clark in 1825 to the first foot-shaped shoe in the world; from the most advanced model cushioning to high-speed prototyping and 3D printing … Brilliant ideas are what sets us apart.
Leonardo da Vinci described the human foot as “a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art”. And to make sure we can take better care of it than anyone else, we have studied it thoroughly. From the first steps to old age; we have examined how it develops. We have studied its biomechanics, the way it moves in work, rest and play. And we have figured out what it takes to keep our feet healthy and happy. What we have learned is what helps us create the perfect shoes for you, available since 2016 in our Clarks shop in the El Triangle Shopping Center, Barcelona.
In our archive of more than 22,000 Clarks models, are shoes that have brought about a revolution, have defined a generation and have captured their imagination. A good example of this is the iconic Clarks Desert Boot. Designed by Nathan Clark and introduced in 1950, its appeal remains intact to this day. Or our classic Nature, an innovative hybrid between the sport and casual shoe that made its debut in the late 1980s. Recently it has been redefined and redesigned, and “reborn” with more vitality and style than ever. And of course, Trigenic Flex, the craft innovation that has become a unique modern classic is its kind.
