Clarks In Jamaica

As SS13 sees a collaboration between YMC x Clarks Originals, we thought it might be nice to stock the “Clark’s In Jamaica Book” in our stores. Coming soon to the online webstore.

Written by Al Fingers this book is image heavy and documents the wearing of Clarks shoes on the Island. “Through current and historic photographs, interviews, and previously unseen archival material, and with particular focus on the Jamaican musicians who have worn and sung about Clarks Originals shoes for years, this book explores how footwear made by a Quaker firm in the small, quiet, English village of Street, Somerset, came to be the “baddest” shoes in Jamaica.”
