If you didn’t know, Clarks Originals is the brand’s flagship range, taking in the classics of the past. Shoes that have been around for years and still look as sharp today as they did decades ago.
I’m a huge fan myself and rarely wear anything else. But it’s been a frustrating job getting some for my little boy. he had some desert boots at one point, but they left the range soon after and we had to make do with inferior imitations. Not anymore.
Three styles are in the Clarks Originals for kids range, the 1950s desert boot (which needs no introduction at all), the Desert Trek from the late 1960s and the Wallabee, which has also been in the Clarks range since the 1960s.
You can get each one in various finishes and of course, various sizes and widths, ranging from the ‘first’ if you want your child’s first shoe to be from the Originals range through to the slightly larger infant. The downside is a lack of styles for slightly older children, which seems like a serious oversight. Hopefully those are to follow.
A few examples pictured here from the range, but do check out the site for all the colour variations of the designs in question. They really are super cute, but unfortunately, like the adult range, the Clarks Originals for kids range does come at a premium.
That premium is between £45 and £60. I know, not ideal, especially at an age when they grow out of shoes pretty quickly. But on the plus side, they’ll look very cool whilst in them and if you look after these, they can always work as both design pieces in the bedroom or can be sold on for a decent amount too.
