Choosing Styles

The average adult body can absorb up to 750 tons of pressure via walking throughout a given day. Clarks shoes and boots take in up to a third of said pressure and shock that normally would travel from the feet and ankles up through the knees, hips, back, and neck.

Before purchasing a new pair of shoes, consider your daily activities, particularly for work. Are you outdoors most of the day and subject to a variety of weather conditions? If so, a closed-front and/or waterproof shoe may fit the bill. Are you a teacher, medical professional, or otherwise on your feet most of the day? A shoe with great support, durable soles, and adequate cushioning will be a smart choice. Do you have a desk job? If so, a variety of styles, heel heights, and support may be appropriate. Don't hesitate to ask a Clarks sales associate for recommendations – they'll be most familiar with the styles best suited for a wide roster of activities.

If you have an active lifestyle, with lots of walking and recreational activities, finding a shoe with great support and flexibility is a must. Lace-up styles will enable you to best customize your fit, while shoes made from leather are ideal for breathability and for conforming over time to your unique foot shape.

If you tend to do a lot of walking, be sure to check out the Clarks WAVEWALK™ collection. All WAVEWALK™ shoes carry the seal of acceptance from the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA).
