Ask a Jamaican what their favourite make of shoes is and the answer will probably by ‘Clarks.’ Because in Jamaica, Clarks are loved like no other brand. They are the island’s ruling style of footwear, the ‘champion shoes’ and it’s been that way for as long as anyone can remember.

For the first time, through current and historic photographs, exclusive interviews and previously unseen archive material, this book looks at how the footwear made by a Quaker firm in the small, quiet English village of Street, Somerset came to be the ‘baddest’ shoes in America.
