Thank you, school pair ordered for my son always nice to see such in a sale.
is it just me or is their webpage not letting you search by size and price?
Quality of Clarks shoes nosedived after they moved making them out of England to far East.
Never bought a pair for years. If you want the quality of shoes Clarks USED to have - buy Hotter shoes. I buy nothing but hotter.co.uk

Thanks, had never heard of Hotter. While I agree the quality has gone down over the years, I find Clarks do have one or two good quality pairs in among the rubbish, they just take some finding. Would like to try Hotter, but the equivalent pair to the Clarks ones I usually buy are £70, so that rules them out for me I'm afraid.
Thanks ordered a pair for work, heat added.
Thanks ordered school shoes for son.
Just tried to order kids shoes and it says home delivery only ! When did they stop the order into your local shop in a couple of sizes get the kids to try them on then decided if you wanted them
Thanks OP. Still pricey but can at least think about buying from Clarks when they have a sale on.
Is this instore as well or only on line ?

I'm not sure why people complain about Clarks shoes so much. Thay last a very long time. My girls grown up of them before they falling apart And when you buy them on sale (-50% off or more) they are a great value...

I had a look at Hotter shoes - not very fasionable shoes...

I used the delivery to local shop option only a couple of weeks ago - found it very useful. A shame if this is no longer available...
No juniors or babies ? Is the 6g for boys ? Confused
I bought a pair of shoes from Clarks for £26 in the sale this time last year. I've worn them to work pretty much every day over the last ear and they are still in great shape - and oh so comfy. As the sale draws to a close there's usually some even sweeter bargains to be had. It's hot from me.

Eye of the beholder and all that.
Think Hotter are light years better than Clarks, lastability being opnly one of the pluses.
Had 2 Clarks in last ten years.Not comfortable as they used to be and just about fell apart in a year. I have Hotter shoes 10 years old and good as ever

Phil, most ladies don't wear shoes for 10 years and sometimes style is more important then 100% of comfort...
But I must say I only buy kids and ladies shoes in Clarks, prefer other brands for men.

Simple - because they churn out shoes which aren't fit for purpose and then refuse to do anything about it to help their customers. Very large numbers of their shoes, left unused, have fallen to pieces because of poor manufacturing - check out Clarks and hydrolysis online. Clarks are offering a £10 voucher for brand new shoes that have fallen apart without any use at all. I know that because I have some - so has the wife. Never again - they're rubbish shoes sold at high prices, and from a company that doesn't give a toss about its customers.

Check out your old unused Clarks shoes, which you think will be as they were when they were new - they probably won't be! Check these out too if you still trust Clarks:

Thoroughly understand. I myself wait for their sales ! (_;)
2 for 3 is good, although never used it, some of their "clearance" is worth keeping an eye out for - half price Just look for sale normally hidden away under "Mens" and "Womens"
I bought a pair of Hotter boots for work. 3 years ago this month, and only sign of wear - CONSTANT wear - is the lace on left boot.
Even better than Clarks when they WERE English-made (When I used to buy ONLY Clarks. Wouldn't touch them now)

Well, I'm having only a good experience with them. All leather shoes for my girls were bought form Clarks (I use cheaper shops to get canvas trainers etc). Some pairs were kept unused for 4 years and my yonger daughter is wearing them now. I'm pretty sure I had 10 pairs in last ten years (mainly pumps and sandals) and never had a faulty pair. I used some sandals for 3 seasons...

Oh, and it was the only brand where I could get properly fitted shoes for my younger daughter with feet like Cinderella

Newbold is spot on.
Poor quality shoes, glued soles that fall apart after charging a premium price (at least for kids).
These discounted prices are on par with Clark's typical outlet prices (McArthur Glen etc).
I'd pay a little extra upfront and buy Startright for kids (often some clearance at J Lewis online) and will last 2-3times longer than Clark's.

agreed.

My boy always choose start-rite shoes over Clark shoes.
I worked in Clarks for around 5 years. They make 60% profit from even their goretex range so even at 60% off, they will be making a killing on these children's shoes. Look out for - Shoecare - the staff have to make no less than around 2.3% of all their sales in Shoecare. So when the recommend something, it's purely a KPI. Also, it's overpriced, except for maybe the protector spray. Also look out for special offers, especially on men's. They sell a number of lines @ £50 for about 6 weeks then steadily decrease the price to £25. This lower price is then used for the rest of the year, fooling people that it's on offer when clearly it is a ploy to show the shoes to be really cheap and get people through the door. Finally, they treat the stock like crap. It gets thrown around all over the place. What IS good though is that you can call customer services and get a refund on any pair of shoes up to 6 years old, even if you are just unhappy with the fit (don't try this in store tho)
Their web site is annoying. Can't get it to work properly in Firefox, Chrome or even IE. I agree, Hotter are what Clarks were; but also, Clarks were pretty dull then. Current styles are not half bad but sizes/quality are variable, so visit your local store and build a wishlist/check out quality before ordering online - if you order multiple sizes for fit, you'll lose ALL your Quidco/TCB when you return the spares.

They used to have a wishlist facility on the site but they broke that.

Never bought kids' shoes, can't comment on that. But if you look at what you're buying there are some decent offers out there.
Interestingly, talking about their website, just try getting a negative review onto it. The negative reviews are heavily censored and removed. And they won't allow comments about the hydrolysis problem that's affected so many of their shoes (and which they won't help with).

Says a lot about Clarks, doesn't it?
