Clarks is one of my first shops if I am looking for a good long lasting pair of shoes. I normally purchase my work shoes from Clarks. I think Clarks has the reputation of being either for kids or for older people. But I think that actually their shoes are really great. They sell work shoes, going out shoes, trainers and pumps. Clarks also sell mens and kids shoes.
I own one pair of fancy going out shoes and these were from clarks. They are a pair of black satin peep toe shoes. I have had these for around 6 years and they still look great! Sure there are shoes which are aimed at older shoppers but most of their shoes are suitable for all shoppers. They are really comfortable and really well made. At the moment they have lots of pumps and sandal type shoes for summer.
I really like their work shoes as they are really hard wearing. The heel is normally wooden which I prefer as the cobbles in Edinburgh are really bad for getting heels caught in them and ripping off the leather, resulting in your shoes looking really old and battered. But with their wooden heels Clarks shoes do not have this problem.
Clarks are a little more expensive than say Barratts but it is worth it as they will last you a long time. You will probably need to get them re heeled which isn't an unreasonable expectation. But the sole and general make up of the shoe should do you well.
If you haven't been to Clarks in a while or you haven't been at all I would suggest you have a look, you just might be surprised!
Summary: Worth a visit!
