A clear vision

To empower everyone with the freedom to move comfortably.

With values to achieve it

Community

Collaboration and a positive attitude drive us as a team. We celebrate achievements, inspire confidence, cultivate trust, and empower each other to succeed. This brings us together as a community to realise our ambitions.

Curiosity

We nurture an environment where people feel supported to ask “why?” and “why not?”. With curiosity at our core, we step out of our comfort zones to better understand our craft, our business, and the world around us.

Commitment

To achieve our Clarks mission, we make a commitment to never stand still. We’re conscientious about continuous improvement and accountability for our actions and words. Our passion for progress and pursuit of excellence are what move us forward.

Clarity

From a shared vision for the future to clearly defining our goals and strategy, clarity is essential to everything we do. We simplify, focus on what matters most, and communicate honestly with each other to achieve the strongest outcomes.

Courage

Being bold is in our DNA, but not being intimidated by failure is also critical to our success. It’s having the courage to act fearlessly and learn what works (and what doesn’t) that helps us grow. It’s what makes us, and our heritage, genuinely iconic.

With a focus
on sustainability

We crafted our first pair of slippers from leftover sheepskin, so reducing our environmental impact is in our roots. We’re a brand known for acting with integrity, and it’s our collective responsibility to maintain that reputation.

To us, sustainability is about digging into the details and analysing everything we do, to be better for the world ahead. From sourcing materials more responsibly and making shoes that last, to using recycled content and investing in the communities where we live and work.

Our Quality team also stringently monitors all our global suppliers to make sure they meet our high standards. Because we also want to inspire our friends and neighbours to follow our lead in taking strides that make a huge difference. So together, we can move the world ahead.

Whose future is exciting

Today, Clarks is a global business, selling millions of pairs of shoes a year around the world. And we keep pushing the boundaries of expert shoemaking – from cutting-edge collections with design innovators like Martine Rose to collaborating with leading brands and licences like Eastpak and Pokémon. Taking strides in social change, reimagining legendary silhouettes, and making shoes that move us all forward – Clarks never stands still.

And it all starts with our extraordinary people. The true originals. Faithful to our roots, and always looking to the future. They’re the ones who help us stay out in front. Working collaboratively, creatively and responsibly to keep moving the world ahead.

And past provides integrity

Established in Somerset, England, Clarks has been a shoemaking pioneer since 1825, when founding brothers James and Cyrus created their first sheepskin slipper. A complete game-changer, this profile’s radical combination of innovation and craftsmanship still remains at the heart of everything we do. Now, as always, every silhouette stays true to our craft, heritage and inspirations.
