An international cult classic, the Desert Boot was inspired by the crepe-soled boots worn by British officers in World War II. Soft, supple suede full grain leather uppers and a genuine plantation crepe outsole deliver all-day comfort. Timeless styling has remained unchanged for fifty years.
About Clarks Originals
Consumer interest in Clarks Originals, a collection of authentic Clarks classics introduced over the last 50 years, is building into a frenzy. Never advertised in the United States, this resurgence continues to gain momentum through word-of-mouth and the increasing appeal of authentic and timeless classics.
Now one of the largest footwear companies in the world, Clarks England is also one of the oldest. From its humble beginnings in 1825, in the tiny English village of Street, Somerset, to a global company that manufactures and markets close to 35 million pairs of shoes a year, Clarks' commitment to comfort, quality, authenticity and individual style has remained unchanged. A pioneer in the concept of comfort footwear, Clarks has repeatedly revolutionized the footwear industry with its ongoing product innovations. Today, that long-standing heritage of innovation still guides us as we create product collections that are broader and more diverse than ever before. From careerwear to weekend wear, Clarks now provides men and women with comfortable, stylish footwear for nearly every occasion in their active lives.
And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.
There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.
