PostThe Essential Ballet Pump

Who would have thought that the essential ballet pump would own such an illustrious history.

Back in the 16th century a simple flat style of shoe was favoured by women and men, until Catherine de’ Medici demanded a couple of inches be added to her wedding shoes. Height remained a trend throughout the 17th and 18th centuries. Then Marie Antoinette killed the heel when she lost her head at the guillotine. Flats were once more du jour.

Audrey Hepburn in ballet pumps and cigarette pants nearly sealed the deal, but ultimate kitten Brigitte Bardot did the trick in the 60s. Chic, timeless. The essential ballet pump became a look we still turn to if we want to feel a little French, a little pretty or a little practical.

PostNature Reborn | Nature IV

Nature: Redefined. Redesigned. Reborn.

More than three decades after the release of our iconic Nature shoe, we’ve released Nature IV, an update for the contemporary wearer. Evolution is essential. But we stay true to this Clarks innovation from the 1980s.

To mark the rebirth of Nature, the story of the original – redefined and redesigned for 2017 – emerges in a fusion of sound and vision. We journey through the fantastical ‘transformation machine’ watching as old Nature morphs into Nature IV, marvelling at a kaleidoscope of textures and surfaces, technology and design.
