More style, same comfort and quality= a lot of options for parent company Clarks footwear and its family of labels...  Clarks, Bostonian, Originals, Indigo, and Privo-

At the media preview-we saw a lot of on trend women's options-that fashion types might be surprised bear the "Clark" imprint...including basket weave and laser cut leather uppers on cork and natural fiber wedge heels, patent pumps, and great casual flats and sandals with ornate touches.

Originals for women

Heels or flats-this season Clarks went beyond the serviceable-and added design details-like the cute leather bows and flower on the flats-pictured above and below.

Desert Boot

WE thought the men's options- actually made the greatest leap forward in terms of style---with more bold color  and mixed texture options refreshing the classic Clarks desert boot that have been staples...for decades.

Majorca-great slip-ons-driver style

New to us-the casual collection of leather or suede uppers-with rubber soles in white-that are an upgrade from sneakers-but just as comfy.
