Love Clarks shoes. Ok they do a few duff styles but have you ever tried the competition. So much c..p out there that falls to pieces after a few weeks wear. so thank god for Clarks.
They're such poor quality these days, that even with 60% off they're not worth it.

Not as good as when they were all UK made, but still better than most of the rest. My current daily shoes were made in either Brazil or Vietnam. They've lasted well but were a pig to break in.

Agree but still decent value. I am mindful that my son bought a pair of trendy formal shoes, a well known high st brand. Within weeks both soles had snapped in half. The uppers were synthetic and the inners seemed to be of some sort of cardboard. Probably cost 50P to make. He wouldnt be seen dead in a pair of Clarks but if thats the alternative best go barefooted.

Quidco is 5% plus £2.50 extra today!
I Keep visiting in in the hope that they have decent shoes in the sales but it is always the stuff specially made for sales and are of very poor quality and fitting.

I did find a pair I liked recently which had a sale sticker but when I took it to the till they said it was a mis price and wouldnt sell it to me for the sale price sticker on the shoe.

I bought from Ecco instead which always have their normal shoes in the sales so they are genuine products and not some tat you find in Clarke's sales.

By the way, these are Clark’s outlet brand. It’s kinda like their low cost version. Avoid. Quality not great at all.

Some of the stuff I bought online from Clark's wasn't even worth the heavily discounted price.
Bought 2 pairs of Clarks last Thursday when sale was posted on here.They had a delivery date of 2nd July on email.They haven’t even been dispatched yet.

After reading this thread I checked and the 2 pair I bought have been reduced further,So rang them and refunded £18 difference...thanks.

Just need them dispatched now.

Got 3 pairs in my basket went to "click and collect" and they want me to pay but I'd rather pay on collection with cash. Sale lost.
Been looking for a new pair of shoes. £26 for Clark’s is a bargain. Thanks very much!

I've been wearing the same pair of Clarks shoes, bought in a Clarks sale, for around 10 years. Quality clearly not what it should be. Can you tell me where you buy your shoes so that I can get a pair that'll last longer?

Although your question was directed at member Stompa I tend to agree with his original sentiment about the quality. Clarks are a good example of a once historically excellent British company watered down over the years by a management policy of shifting all manufacturing from the UK to China, India, Vietnam etc whilst still trading off the back of the Britishness of the brand name. On a personal note I feel shoes are one of those consumer items that you definitely get what you pay for and in reply to your question to member Stompa I buy largely Anatomic & Co shoes, not cheap but beautifully made, super comfortable with great longevity if looked after so financially worth the extra outlay in the long run.

Not exactly mass market though are they. Clarks still produce quality footwear even if not as good as in the past. To survive, they had to go offshore and diversify into areas that they probably wouldn't have touched in the past. But the fact is that if you want to go into a shoe shop and buy shoes, Clarks is probably still the best on the "High Street".
My 10 year old everyday shoes were made in Vietnam. I'd rather they'd been made in Street, but they're still excellent shoes.

I have 5 pairs of Clark Originals desert boots, the oldest is 6 years old, and they are all as good as when I first bought them. I wouldn't even dream of buying another brand.

Exactly. 10 years ago. Buy a pair now, see if they last 10 years. Lucky to get 6 months from them.

Hadn't heard of either, but having had a look, don't think I'll bother. Looks a bit "designer" - ie tat imported from wherever's cheapest, in the case of Dune/Bertie, China and India seem to dominate.

"not cheap but beautifully made," In Brazil, it would appear.

I agree that there is a question mark on Clarks quality since the production has been taken outside Britain. Clarks shoes Made in Vietnam and Cambodia are still good quality and last longer. Made in China are just alright but Clarks shoes that are made in India are the worst, neither are they comfortable nor do they last longer.

I have heard that Clarks have brought some production back to UK though have not seen any recent Made in UK yet.

I bought two pairs of those from the USA Clarks outlet. They were £30 a pair. I honestly think £25 would have been more realistic. Wouldn't buy them again. I had a pair of Timberland desert boots that were far superior and actually cost less money.

I don't know about you, but I'm old enough to remember when most town centres had more shoe shops than anything else, primarily because they were selling cheap "fashionable" (designer now I expect) tat that would be lucky to survive the walk home.
The low cost tat shops appear to have been replaced by high cost "designer" shops in the temples of tat (malls), so beloved of the posers who seem more intent on being seen with the "right" bag/label than having shoes that actually fit and last.

The major difference between then and now is that the tat tends to be more expensive.

Not sure what point you’re trying to make but if it’s specifically to do with Anatomic’s country of manufacture I am well aware they are made in Brazil and in my initial comment never suggested anything to the contrary, indeed to my knowledge absolutely none whatsoever are made in the UK. The company was however created in the UK by a Brazilian couple with a footwear manufacturing background who moved here many years ago.
anatomicshoes.com/eu/…us/

My only point about Clarks was simply a one of disappointment i.e. eager to trade on the heritage and Britishness of its name yet seeing fit to take the manufacturing jobs abroad.

The interesting thing about the link you posted is that they leave out more than they put in. Reading between the lines, it sounds like they buy their stock from Brazilian shoe factories and sell them under their own label. No different from any other shoe retailer. Just higher prices. The branding image is no different from the various "farms" used in supermarket product imaging.
And that's my point.
Picked up a few pairs in the January sale and they are all but knackered already. Won’t be buying again. Avoid

I agree. The shoes are really comfy but my current pair have only lasted 6 months. Both shoes have split in the same place, along the side of the big toe, so clearly a design/quality/strength issue. Happy to pay half price but would never pay full price anymore. Gone are the days where shoes would last you a couple of years.
