Shoes have always been the most essential and vital accessory of a person’s style. Be it men or women, shoes have captured the imagination of all. This is what inspired the Quaker brothers- James and Cyrus Clark to manufacture slippers and sheepskin rugs. From a simple business startup, Clark shoes have built up a strong business empire with an annual sale of 1174 million pounds in 2010. The company has around 1000 stores in 160 countries predominantly in United Kingdom, United States and Far East. For much of its life of business, Clark manufactured its shoes with out-workers from the streets of Somerset. Due to rising costs, the company has transferred its manufacturing to low cost destinations like India, Cambodia and Vietnam.
The Clarks brothers developed an entire Clarks village in its redundant buildings with the setting up of 90 shops which are mainly coffee shops, refreshment stalls and dining areas.
The company is credited with the creation of iconic styles like the Clarks “Wallabee”, the Clarks “Desert Boot”, and the Clarks “Playdeck” sandal. The playdeck sandals were made basically for men with unique styling. Clark shoes are extremely famous in Jamaica also where the dancehall star Vybz Kartel has made them popular!
Clarks have made a formidable reputation for them in terms of the children shoes range. Their shoes are not only comfortable but also made out of ‘hygienic’ leather. The advertisement campaigns by Clark have also made them hugely accepted amongst the teens. Many reputed singers like Florence Welch, Nick Cave, Bob Dylan, Dizzee Rascal and Robbie Williams have been wearing them. This gives the brand a suitable recognition. Thus the rich and famous have adopted these shoes for not only its brand value but for the high comfort levels they offer.
