It’s a rite of passage that virtually every child across the UK has enjoyed for as long as we can remember… a trip to Clarks to have your feet measured for your first pair of shoes…From slipping your tiny toes into that funny little plastic gauge with the measuring tape that got tightened over the bridge of your foot….To that wondrous moment you officially came of age and were deemed ‘big enough’ to enjoy the scary-yet-exciting experience of slipping your foot into the electronic measuring device that threatened to crush your feet from all angles. Come on! – You must remember those ice cold metallic plates that moved in on your pinkies from all four sides?…Ahhhh those were the days!
Roll on to 2016 and the technology has moved on – now embracing the use of iPads for the measuring of Children’s feet. And so, it’s only fitting (pardon the pun!) that the stores have moved on too and we are thrilled to welcome the brand new state of the art store to Market Place from Saturday 14th May 2016.
The brand new store showcases the brand new Spring / Summer 2016 collection, bringing heritage and craftsmanship from the Clarks archive into the here-and-now. With creative vision, modern innovations and of-the-moment details, drawing on over 190 years of shoemaking expertise. They certainly seem to have given our family footwear favorite a fabulous 21st century makeover
