Clarks has been a trusted name in men’s footwear for over 100 years. Since debuting its first shoe, the Desert Boot, in 1950, Clarks has garnered legions of fans. Though the original response to the simple, rugged style was underwhelming, it started flying off shelves everywhere by the ’60s, from American to Britain to Jamaica.
Today, the heritage label offers a variety of silhouettes to meet workplace, smart-casual and formal dress codes. Offering everything from oxfords to hybrid casual-dress shoes crafted with premium materials and cushioned footbeds, Clarks is proof that comfortable shoes can also be stylish.
And while the brand is reasonably affordable, their hallmark shoes have been seen on the feet of A-list celebs such as Drake, David Beckham and even Prince Harry, who evidently all have access to designer duds. Due to their enduring popularity and cultural footprint, Clarks has also partnered with a number of different brands, including Tibi and Palm Angels.
Here, for shopping made easier, we’ve curated some of the best Clarks men’s shoes that are bound to become your constant companions. You’ll find we included a few of the brand’s most notable pairs as well as other best-selling styles. Read up on all of our picks ahead and choose your favorite.
