This leading shoe shop is no longer just Mrs Squirrel’s family favourite but in involving over the years it now stocks a massive range of fantastic hardwearing and fashionable footwear for men and women, perfect for all occasions and budgets; this combo also making it a definite favourite with students all over the UK.

It will come as no surprise therefore that it is one of the most popular brands with you money savvy students . Add to the fact that they offer amazing discounts all year round as well – what more could you want?

It’s a British institution, and if you grew up in the UK you no doubt went to Clarks to be measured for school shoes, either by a staff member or by what felt like a space-aged measuring machine!

Now, we’re all a little past that, but Clarks is just as relevant a footwear retailer today as it was then; it’s just all too often a shop we walk past without even thinking about it.

Famous not actually for their children’s shoes but their ‘Desert Boot’, an ankle-height boot with a crepe rubber sole made out of calf leather, the retailer hit the big time back in 1950 by introducing this shoe which went on to become a bestseller.

There are over 1,000 Clarks shoe shops worldwide and the company also sells through third part distribution elsewhere around the globe.

Most British high streets have a Clarks and so if you’re going to university in a major town or city, you can expect to find one nearby. However, if you’re not, there’s no need to miss out: Clarks.co.uk stocks a full range of men’s, women’s, girl’s and boy’s shoes that can be delivered to your door.

With so many budget footwear retailers now on the high street, Clarks is often overlooked – particularly by people of student age. Yet fashion students often shop here, as the statement pieces and simple robust classics make for wardrobe staples that don’t detract from a chic outfit.

Clarks is well known for its quality of shoes, and this elevates them above many competitors as they inhabit an area between budget and premium pricing that often makes their products better value than many other household brands.

Clarks isn’t the place to shop for a pair of trainers, but for a formal or informal shoe, they have you covered.

The women’s range includes boots, brogues, flats, heels, pumps and formal shoes, and the men’s, brogues, loafers, smart casual, smart shoes and slippers.

The Clarks Originals range feature their flagship pieces, including the previously mentioned Desert Boot, the suede Weaver shoe, the ergonomic Trigenic and Trigenic Evo sandals and flats, and the water-resistant very sensible Wallabee shoe.

More recently, Clarks have linked in with several pop culture institutions to create limited edition shoes to be worn by film or TV fans. These include limited edition shoes celebrating the new Star Wars trilogy and the recently released Blank Panther film.

What’s more, if you have feet that are a half-size or an unusually small or large size, Clarks will have something for you. Starting at size 2 for women and 5 for men, topping at 9 for women and 15 for men, everything is available in a variety of sizes and there’s further styles available for wide fit as well as an extra support range. They’ve got something for everyone and every foot – no matter the shape or size!

Top Student Buy: Hidi Holly Women’s Sports Shoes – £59.00

An elegant take on the modern trainer, this white leather casual sneaker is a lace-up with a really crafted look and feel for a smart twist. Team with jeans or a dress and indulge the ath-leisure trend! What’s more, they’re super comfy, with a deep-moulded foot-bed lined with Clarks’ own Cushion Plus technology so you can wear them all day long as they’ll be just as cosy as a pair of trainers would be!

Top Student Buy: Keeler Step Men’s Formal Shoe – £55.00

A must-have for job interviews and formal occasions, the Keeler Step shoe looks smart but Clarks define it as ‘smart casual’ because of the comfort features built in. They’re slip-on for ease of use and the outer is 100% black leather for longevity and quality.

Available in a range of colours all crafted from taupe leather with signature stitching on the front, the bag has an internal zip compartment for your small valuables as well as a zip and magnetic fastening for extra security. The strap is adjustable so you can wear it however you like, and its compact size makes it easy to carry around but just right for carrying all of your essentials out and about.

History of the Company

Clarks has a long history, so there’s no surprise that they’re well versed in creating and selling only the highest quality of shoes.

Founded way back in 1821, Cyrus Clark entered into a business partnership with his cousin in fellmongering, wool-stapling and tanning. Just four years later, the partnership ended, but Cyrus retained some premises in Street – which Clarks still hold today!

The business continued to grow, and Cyrus brought his brother James on-board to make slippers from material that was too small to make rugs. This proved a real turning point for the brothers and they began to sell around the UK and to Ireland. Eventually, the business was handed to James’ son William, and it became a private limited company once its financial position stabilised. It hit the high street properly in 1937 when it bought a chain of existing shoe shops, and quickly grew a reputation for its expert shoe fitting services and offering its full range in four widths.

Today, there are over 1,000 Clarks stores worldwide and their reputation for quality is still intact. Clarks North America is also a robust company in its own right and is stocked in several high street retailers in the US such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Abercrombie & Fitch. The business continues to grow and stores in the UK are currently undergoing refurbishment and an update re-brand.
