Product Guide


  • Men's Shoes
  • Women's Shoes


Started in 1825 with a single Somerset, England, storefront, Clarks has long been a pioneer when it comes to comfort footwear. It was the first company to fit shoes following the natural arch of the foot and the first to use lightweight polyurethane for soles. The company's Manhattan flagship store reflects that sensibility with its design: Natural wood shelves and floors impart warmth and coziness to a small space where half the shop is devoted to women's flats, heels, and handbags; the other half, to men's shoes. Cult classics like the Wallabee and the Desert Boot are stocked alongside more modern, in-house lines such as Indigo and Bostonian, and comfort-conscious brands like Ecco. Customers craving pointy-toed heels or sleek Italian loafers will be disappointed, but those who like to walk with ease and still look polished will find what they're looking for.
