Built for barefoot our Darning Walk lace ups in petrol blue suede are the perfect solution to today’s international ‘No sock day’. This unlined style features an antimicrobial Ortholite® footbed making them ideal for going sans-socks. Team them with some sartorial, cropped joggers, a blazer and grandad collar shirt for a smart style that you can wear right into summer.
The Trigenic Dune boot teams a three part decoupled sole with supple, waxy leathers for a new take on sports minimalism. The flexible construction makes them commuter-friendly and their architectural edge makes them a striking piece of footwear design – don’t just take our word for it (www.highsnobiety.com).
Whether it’s Monday morning, dress down Friday or a lazy Sunday with mates, the Desert Aerial is your new go to shoe for instant outfit impact. Based on the iconic Desert Boot but reinterpreted in perforated suede with a super lightweight sneaker sole, this versatile design can be worn with slacks in your downtime and then restyled with smart separates for work.
We’ve come a long way since the days of pinstripes and bowler hats. Workwear needs to have enough of a sartorial slant to be taken seriously – while at the same time being flexible enough to take us from work to weekend when 5 o’clock on a Friday rolls around.
These low profile Jink Desert Boots in green canvas will take the edge off summer suits or chinos and can then be worn with denim shorts when Saturday comes.
Our first ever dedicated men’s showcase has closed its doors but luckily we took some time to film the pop-up store in all its vintage glory. Located in the heart of Neal Street, Covent Garden, The Men’s Edit store hosted events with traditional shoe-shining, gourmet street food and craft beers on tap. Throw in the hand-picked edit of Clarks men’s shoes, including the ground breaking collaboration with Norton Motorcycles, and you’ve got a winning combination.
Now, on to the next one…
To celebrate the launch of our Men’s Edit store in Covent Garden, blogger and photographer Garcon Jon photographed and interviewed four London gents in their favourite AW14 Clarks shoes. See the full interview with artist Abo Akin here and take a look at the boots he’s wearing, the Frelan Rise, here. For more information on our first ever Men’s only store in Covent Garden click here.
Two key footwear trends making their mark in AW14 are high shine leather finishes and sole detailing. A slick oxblood leather finish brings a new dimension to our iconic Desert Boots. Team yours with a blazer and jeans for a new take on office wear.
With ice soles, colour stacks and saw tooth all making an impression this year, soles are no longer just a practicality. Our utility inspired Monmart Rise boots look great with a winter print jumper, jeans and a beanie hat.
Our GORE-TEX® boots for men are waterproof, breathable, and comfortable – well what else would you expect from us? Now you can also rely on style that will look as good on wet city streets as it will on rocky mountainsides.
Case in point – our Nanu Rise boots which combine all-weather tech with effortless style. Team yours with a pair of dark denims, padded gilet, fingerless gloves and a knitted fisherman beanie hat. Now that’s your autumn uniform sorted.
LC:M is the menswear equivalent to London Fashion Week. For emerging designers to global British brands, it kick-starts the calendar showcasing British fashion’s key collections, and SS15 was as eclectic as ever.
This year’s event featured Clarks as part of acclaimed designer and tailor Richard James’ show. Inspired by the cultural collision of the British soldier with the Sahara during the late 1930s, his Desert Rats show was a huge success. Featuring the four-pocket safari jacket, neat tailoring, plenty of khaki and olive linen and Desert Rat motifs, the show was made complete by the presence of our very own Clarks Desert Boots.
Richard told us “When I knew we needed classic desert boots, it had to be Clarks.” – We couldn’t agree more.
