Early in the 1950's, Nathan Clark launched his desert boot. The boot was a model with attitude and quickly became popular all over the world. It was followed in the sixties by Lance Clark's Wallabee - a simple moccasin model, which became another classic Clark's shoe. During the 1970's Clark's investment in technical research paid off, when the launch of polyurethane sole materials gave Clark's customers unique comfort benefits. Clark experienced a significant growth in the UK during this period, with the establishment of a large retail chain. While the global expansion accelerated, especially in the U.S. Today, 179 years after it all began, Clark is the leading shoe brand in the world!
