I wrote Clarks customer service and asked if their shoes were made in China. This is their response:

Currently, we manufacture shoes in over 12 countries. We source our products globally due to various factors including cost, availability of materials, and capacity issues within individual countries. Because we have many sourcing options, we are not overtaxing any of our factories. We also are continually exposed to new technologies, materials and shoemaking techniques from different areas of the world, each having their own expertise.

Our shoe making standards are up to the same high standards no matter where we make product. Leathers, cutting dies, lasts, and machinery are consistent in quality in any of our factories, whether they are located in England, Brazil, China, Slovenia, Italy, or any other country. All of our factories have to follow our strict standards including hourly wage and work conditions.

If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to contact us via email, or by calling 1-800-211-5461. We are grateful for your continued support of the Clarks family of products.

Sincerely,

Dan

I love CLarks and they do have some nice styles. I found pair at Marshalls for $30, that look like suede 3 inch chunky heel boots when worn with jeans. Very comfortable as well. I never need to put a different arch support insole in them.

I just ordered some Clark sneakers at 6pm.com.

Don't get me started on Clarks, I'm addicted, but then I have no choice but to wear these and other comfort shoes these days due to foot problems. I have quite a few pairs of clarks, for more style I tend to go with naturlizers, a few aerosoles which aren't as comfortable as the naturalizers I've been finding out, but for everyday wear, clarks are my go to aside from new balance.

see picks of some of my more recent Clarks purchases and couple of aerosoles in last pic, I don't pay retail or anywhere near it, so, no outrages shoe budget here. Have gotten a couple brand new as low as $20

PS, I live in warm climate reason for all open toe shoes.

I have a Marshalls and a Ross in walking distance from me, so ever so often, I find those deals as well, often prices as low as $20. Shhhhhhhhh.
