Chinese enthusiasm for Clarks shoes

Clarks shoes are the must-have shopping item for any Chinese visitor to the UK, according to all the Blog’s Chinese colleagues, and reported today in the Metro.


To the amazement of ICIS London editors, who can pick up a pair of sensible shoes any lunchtime in the Clarks shop on Sutton High Street, Chinese visitors flock to Clarks outlet stores and buy shoes for all the family.


At least one visitor last year had to buy a new suitcase to carry home all his Clarks shoes.


Now Clarks is cashing in by opening up a Shoe Museum at Street in Somerset, “the home of Clarks.”

    You are so right! My Chinese colleague in Germany did the exact same thing when she came over for a course in York! She says the quality is par excellence!
