Clarks Wallabees Footwear

Updated on April 21, 2013

Introducing. "The Infamous Clarks Wallabee!!"

Well. If you haven't heard- these unorthodox, versatile, authentic, unlined boots are called Clarks Wallabees. I've always seen this particular shoe growing up. But I never thought that I would eventually own a pair.

As fate has it, these funny looking boots just happened to be my favorite boots ever. Well. I won't say ever, because I still have a lot of living to do-Lord willing. But as of now, Clarks Wallabees are my #1 brand of choice.


Humble beginnings

It was 1825, when brothers Cyrus and James Clark became inspired to position themselves in the shoe (slipper) business. Sheepskin slipper business to be exact. Sommerset Village of Street (England), was the location of the tannery owned by Cyrus. However, it was James, who came up with a clever idea to recycle the cast offs from sheepskin rugs to make slippers. This brilliant idea turned into a thriving business for the Clark brothers.

The handmade, "Brown Petersburg" sheepskin slipper, became a huge success. Due to popular demand, brothers Cyrus and James Clark began paying villagers to assist in making shoes. This revolutionary idea allowed the entire village to prosper.


Clarks Wallabees

Est. 1965

Clarks Wallabees are an extension of forward thinking. Created in 1965 by Lance Clark. This boot was the first of it's kind. Referred to as the world's first "comfort shoe." The Clarks Wallabee was basically designed for the "individual." Come on. We've all purchased a pair of boots that took forever to break in. Now that I look back at it, I was more focused on "style", than comfort. Immaturity at it's best!

"Comfort over Style-Anyday!!!"

Now this is what I call a Clarks Wallabees display!


Below, I decided to take my Clarks Wallabees outside to enjoy the beautiful Fall weather. When you purchase you're very own; I advise you to do the same. Wallabees have their own special way of thanking you!

Wouldn't you like to look down and see a pair of Clarks Wallabees on your feet? - Comfort over style anyday!


Clarks Wallabees follow the line of the foot. They provide a tailored fit. Which was something that I was not used to, when it came to boots. Versatility and comfort define this shoe. Filling a void for instant comfort, Clarks Wallabees continue to satisfy boot lovers all over the world.


Benefits of wearing a pair of Clarks Wallabees.

Three to be exact.

1. Genuine plantation crepe outsole, for superior foot cushioning.

2. Nature-formed last allows for natural toe spread.

3 Leather sockliner with removable EVA footbed.

This is a Public Service Announcement to all females!

Stop wearing shoes, just because they so called "look good."

Nothing worries me more than to hear a female say: "my feet are killing me!" As if you didn't know those heels were to small. Just because they enhance your leg muscles, or make your legs appear to look longer. You suffer all the day long, in the name of fashion. Look. I must admit. Nothings better than watching a female strut by in a nice pair of heels.

Except watching a female strut by in a pair of Clarks Wallabees.

Get the low down on Clarks Wallabees.



Clarks Wallabees promote good posture.

Excuse me. Do those high heels make your back hurt? They sure look like they do. If you do happen to have back pain, I would advise you to stop pushing your body weight forward. Have you ever had to climb a steep hill? That must be what wearing high (hills) feels like. It kind of looks like your about to fall over forward. Do yourself a favor and stand on level ground. Cushion your feet with genuine plantation crepe soles! You can strut in a pair of Clarks Wallabees too you know!


Clarks Wallabees

"The genuine foot cover."

Clarks Wallabees are in a class of their own! Would you like for me to tell you why? Because they follow the natural shape of the foot. There are no buckles for eyelets, which can be a real discomfort to the top of the foot. As you can see Clarks Wallabees have two eyelets on each side. The plantation crepe sole attached to a moccasin build, is a match made in heaven. "Don't you wish you could walk a mile in my shoes!"

Thanks for taking the time to read my lens on some of my favorite shoes - Clarks Wallabees. - Stay tuned!

      @aesta1: Thanks for the love aesta1. Clarks Wallabees are definitely comfortable walking shoes. As far as the cheap look; it depends on where you purchase your Clarks.

      Good walking shoes...not good for a party, however. Used to love Clarks but the new ones look cheap, I don't know why.
