We live in times where a first generation X-Box is, unironically, called historical. But, when we say Clarks is a historical company, we mean that in the truest sense of the word. The original business partnership between Cyrus Clark and, his cousin, James, dates back to 1821. For perspective, that would be the same year that Napoleon died.
It seems peculiar that a company started by Quaker businessmen during the Georgian era would be known for its pop culture associations rather than, say, its old-fashioned quality, workmanship, but the youthful associations of some iconic Clarks styles remain a driving force behind the brand to this day.
The Ashton takes inspiration from the classic Desert Trek and adds sacchetto construction, where the lining and insole are hand-stitched together, and then sewn onto the upper. A familiar style and the iconic crepe sole, with an extra element of refinement.
