Check the all important small print. Made in the Republic of Ireland by Clarks of Dundalk
Dundalk always had a tradition of shoe making and at its peak (late 60s/70s) employed over 1200 people.
First advert above is from 1968 the other 2 from 1969.

  1. Beautiful, handcrafted – nearly like Italian shoes, so ‘mod’. Is Clarkes gone now from Ireland – Dubarry seems to be the last man standing…pity…bring back Irish manufacturing.
