Clarks OriginalsClarks Originals, the nearly 200-year-old shoe brand, is introducing Trigenic Flex, a new line of everyday footwear that fuses a shoemaker’s craft and traditions with advanced technology and innovation.

The Trigenic Flex takes inspiration from an original 1883 Clarks Hygiene design; stylish shoes that were shaped to the natural contours of the foot, says Prad Indrakumar, senior designer, Clarks Originals. “This was a collection that allowed space for the toes of your foot to move as you walked – revolutionary for its time. We looked at how we could bring this into a modern context,:” he adds.

Clarks are sold in major department stores, shoe emporiums, and its own stand-alone stores.
