About Us

From contemporary looks inspired by the catwalk to the shoemaker’s craft, perfected over time, one name says it all: Clarks. As the world number one in ‘everyday footwear’, we design, innovate, manufacture and sell more than 50 million pairs of shoes every year.

Founded in 1825 by brothers Cyrus and James, Clarks is still a privately owned business and based in our birthplace of Street, Somerset, UK. Today we are a global business, selling shoes in over 35 countries around the world.

While we continue to grow and innovate, we never lose sight of the values that have made us the business we are today – treating our customers, partners, suppliers and each other with honesty, integrity and respect.
