British-based footwear brand Clarks is focusing on the basics for Autumn/Winter 2018. The latest designs allow wearers to live their best life – without being held back by uncomfortable shoes.

Women can look forward to the very elegant Grace collection. At the heart of it, which includes a smart court shoe, refined slingback style and modern ankle boot, is a carefully considered aesthetic.

With tactile nubuck finishes, a rich colour palette centred on khaki and aubergine and marquetry-inspired wooden-heel details, each style is visually appealing and perfectly aligned with the mood of the moment.

Today’s free-thinking lifestyle needs stylish shoes that provide a solid footing. In this instance, Grace’s casual dress shoes combine style and support – creating the ultimate in versatile smart-casual footwear.

For men, Clarks is instead offering the gorgeously masculine Form collection. Inspired by the modern world, this range has a cool and sophisticated feel, yet remains ergonomically streamlined.

From a smart slip-on loafer, to a neat derby lace-up and refined Chelsea boot, the pieces will surely appeal to gents. The answer to its comfort? Built-in attributes such as the pre-flexed leather outsole, refined leather uppers and super-soft lining.

Form provides the perfect solution when you need smart casual. Combining a sophisticated silhouette with a laid-back mood and all-important flexible fit, the collection presents ultimate all-day ease.
