Clarks has been around in Leicester for countless years now. Whether you’re shopping for children’s school shoes or new summer styles they’re a go to.

With spring and summer styles hitting the shelves, we caught up with them for this week’s BID Spotlight feature.

Tell us about some of the new styles available for spring at Clarks?

We have a big variety of styles available for this season, a big focus on Ath Leisure. We have a Courtlite Tor in mens which has responsibly sourced premium cognac suede and nubuck upper, a removable, breathable footbed for customisable comfort. We also have many other styles in the Courtlite range available.

For Ladies we have the Craft range, The craft cup lace has that all important comfort with a cushion plus insole, responsibly sourced leather upper and durable part recycled rubber sole.

You have a big focus on children’s shoes, what’s special about some of the new ranges?

For kids we have a big focus on the the Fawn Range, what makes this style is special is that the fawn hero is inspired by our adult trainers, a great mini me trainer. It has responsibly sourced leather upper, a riptape strap and elastic lacing so easy to get on and off and its light weight.

Can you also bring in children for shoe fittings?

Yes we offer a shoe fitting service specifically for Clarks shoes, Book an appointment in store or online to skip the queues.

What’s your favourite thing about your location in Highcross?

We are situated in the Upper Mall of Highcross. It’s a really bright, fresh and inviting store. Of course our trained staff are always happy to help.

What are your favourite styles that you have in store?

My personal favourite style at the moment is the Craft cup lace in rose suede. A great spring colour, comfortable cushion plus insole and easy to wear with everything. A great all round trainer for everyday.
