Clarks Polyvelts Shoes - Who Remembers Them?

Posted 28th Sep 2008

I have been trying to find a picture of Clarks Polyvelts Shoes.

For those of you who wore them to school 1980 onwards will remeber them as Polly's. Would like to show my daughters what a good pair of school shoes looked like.

Lol. That takes me back. I used to have some, they looked strangely like pork pies I seem to remember.....
They look hideous!! I'm glad I never had to wear those! Look comfy though
Dont quite remember them ones, but I do remember the ones we used to call 'pasties' cos they looked like leather cornish pasties!

Also remember TUKKA boots, and u werent in the in crowd, if u didnt have them................ I never had them :-(
these shoes are evil!
I swear they grew with you! Get a pair at the beginning of school.........leave school in the self same things!
Use them instead of brakes on your bike - no damage.
Leave them outside in the rain - no damage.
A bit of polish and they were as good as new!
I always aspired to having a black pair instead f the pooey brown,but it wasn't to be :cry:
I did,however have a lovely pair in a t-bar sandal style handed down from 2 older cousins :thumbsup:

Thanks OooohMatron
