If you want quality footwear along with a professional service, head to Clarks in Gloucester.
The long-standing shoemakers has been in the city centre for over 60 years, but the brand’s story began almost 200 years ago when Cyrus and James Clark made a slipper from sheepskin off-cuts. At the time it was ground-breaking; a combination of invention and craftsmanship that’s remained at the heart of what Clarks do.
Today they’re the world’s leading ‘everyday footwear’ brand, selling more than 50 million pairs of shoes every year for men, women and kids. You’ll find cool heels, casual brogues, classic work shoes, on-trend boots and practical sandals.
Dan Poole, Gloucester store manager for five years said, ‘Customers come here who want quality and investment pieces that are tested to last. We pride ourselves on an expert fitting service and we offer half sizes with shoes and boots coming in different fittings.’
Dan says the store also prides itself on service, ‘Our staff know everything about every shoe, and they also know what shoe would fit your foot. We all go on courses for fitting and really enjoy the customers coming in and helping them find what they want.’
The Gloucester store has several new arrivals including ‘mini-me’ new arrivals for kids that have been designed with comfort and style in mind. The children’s shoes come in a range of styles and various sizes – including narrow and standard fittings.
