Product description

Clarks in Jamaica by Al Fingers is an in-depth study into the history of Clarks shoes in Jamaica, documenting the brand’s arrival in the West indies in the early 20th Century through to the adoption of the Desert Boot as the rudeboy and Rasta shoe of choice during the 1960s and the filtering of this popularity into reggae and dancehall song lyrics. Featuring historic and current photographs, never-before-seen archive material and excerpts from interviews with Jamaican artists such as Little John, Trinity, Jah Thomas, Ninjaman, Chronixx and Jahvillani, this essential style reference explores how footwear made by a Quaker firm in the quiet English village of Street, Somerset became the “baddest” shoes in Jamaica and an intrinsic part of the island’s culture. Thoroughly researched and beautifully presented, Clarks in Jamaica is a fitting tribute to Clarks’ deep roots in Jamaica and the rich cultural exchange that has taken place between Jamaica and the UK. Written and designed by Al Fingers Chief photographer Mark Read Foreword by Noel Hawks Illustrations by Ben Dorado 240 pages, hardback, 223 × 287 mm. 197 colour illustrations / 192 black & white illustrations
