As one of the pioneering footwear brands in Britain, Clarks is something of an institution to anyone who grew up before the millennium. Founded in 1825 by brothers Cyrus and James, Clarks is still a privately owned business and based in our birthplace of Street, Somerset, UK. Just like most other heritage brands, Clarks past is steeped in interesting facts as well as numerous directional changes through the years. It's this clever management that it takes for a brand to step from one century to another. Now, the brand moves towards an increasingly contemporary aesthetic, as well as maintaining the styles that's made them who they are today, cementing themselves as a staple for every man.
