All from Clarks shoes at John Lewis
I have such fond memories of Clarks. Those magical foot measuring machines made me love going to get my new school shoes as a kid! But in all honesty, it's a brand I've often forgotten about when it comes to buying some new ones and twos (that's shoes in rhyming slang for the cooler people out there!). I did pop in a few months back after seeing a luring 'sale' sign outside a Clarks store though. As it's somewhere my Mum shops at (no offence mum, love ya) I didn't expect to come across much to my taste. But when browsing I was seriously surprised.
I mean, look at these shoes I've picked out here. Some of these I could imagine coming across in Topshop or other shops in that 'cool' bracket. The prices are probably similar too, but if your childhood memories of Clarks are anything like mine, you'll remember your Mum or Dad being massively peeved that it was the freakishly fast growth of my feet that meant they had to buy new shoes rather them falling apart with wear. For me, it's a brand I associate with quality. Maybe that's why it's not seen as a go-to brand for us younger folk! But I bet you young'uns like at least one pair of shoes I've picked out here!
My favourites here are the slipper shoes - it's probably a bit weird, but I really want to touch that hairy looking bit (that does sound weird. Oh god). I'll be looking to buy some smart, long-lasting shoes soon for work and these will be on my list! I'd love to know if you've got the same memories of Clarks as I do - man, I miss those cool foot measuring machines and the good old days of flashing lights on your trainers...
