Clarks…not just for school shoes or boring, granny shoes….

Clarks, the shop most of us would only go to to buy our kids school shoes, is fast becoming a go-to shoe shop for the fashion-savvy woman.

They’ve pulled off some amazing advertising this year, really getting to grips with what us women like – on-trend style, comfort and great value. Their patented “SoftWear” cushioning in lots of their shoes is like walking on a deep pile carpet – something you won’t find in other boots – high street or designer. Let’s face it – we all want shoes we can actually wear!

The Clarks AW12 story is a visual treat….showcasing the inspiration behind this season’s designs and how different looks work for real life people. I guarantee there is something for everyone …

Here are my top favourite picks for AW12..

For the Rock Romantics out there…how about these cool ankle boots in this season’s colour?..

Malm Jive Aubergine Ankle Boots, £69.99

For the buggy-pushing Mums or the school run, how about these versatile biker boots?

Majorca Villa Grey Suede Boots, £99.99

Malm Bright Ankle Boots, Black Leather


For those of you preferring a more sporty look and not quite brave enough to try hi-top wedge trainers, these make the grade for a cool look with a quirky twist from the gorgeous Harris Tweed.

Jilli Tweed Hi Tops in Brown suede/Red Tweed, £49.99 (also in Black/Grey/Purple)

And for a quick, cheap and easy update to your wardrobe, these cute suede ankle boots are a surefire winner to wear with skinny jeans, dresses, tunics and winter shorts….in these 2 colours and more

Melanie Jane in Brown/ Khaki Suede, £59.99

Before I sign off, I should just mention the menswear which is also looking great this season, incorporating beautiful soft leathers and Harris Tweed. I bought some amazing brogue vintage-style boots for my husband with one of the regular 20% offers that Clarks do…so get your men kitted out while you’re at it – in fact, next time you’re kitting the kids out with school shoes, why not just have a family day trip to…Clarks and all come home kitted out?!


Montacute Lord, Dark Tan - also in Dark Brown/ Black Leather and Black or Brown Leather/Harris Tweed combi! £79.99

    My son had these shoes for the last school year and they lasted up until about 3 weeks until the end of the year and this year they have just now broken. The quality is fantastic and they have only broken this time as he’s started playing more football. They still lasted for 9 months. Would definitely recommend
