As the autumn progresses we're getting more & more keen on putting our feet into natural leather boots & shoes. Perfect for the season are the timeless classics from Clarks Originals.
The Clarks family brand actually dates back to 1825 but it wasnt until 1950 that the brand as we know it today took form. Nathan Clark, great grandson of one of the original Clark brothers, had the idea to make a boot similar to the ones british officers stationed in Egypt were having made at the bazaar in Cairo. A rough looking suede boot with crepe rubber soles named Desert Boot. The first trial versions of the boot were not greeted with a lot of enthusiam. As Nathan was convinced this was a great product, He launced the Desert Boot in the U.S. when he took charge of overseas development. It was an instant success. In 1965, Lance Clark agreed to release them in Europe together with the Wallabee boot. Both the shoes became so popular that the Clarks name became a household word for that type of shoe.

This autumn Clarks also decided to reacquaint us with the classic Weaver shoe. It's been a few years since we last saw the Weaver, So we were very happy when we learnt that Clarks was reissuing them. We were even happier when we found out that they were made with the original Padmore & Barnes lasts which makes these beautiful shoes as close to a precise replica as possible.
