The eponymous Clarks label was founded in 1825 by James Clark. The brand's story began when James created a pair of leather slippers out of the off-cuts in his brother's Somerset tannery. Since then, this British footwear label has become the high-street go-to for comfortable shoes that remain of-the-moment. Clarks is a heritage label that can be trusted to always provide quality and style. Look to Clarks for classic styles like the Derby, with a modern twist, like contrast material wing-tips.
