Baddest shoes

How did footwear made by a Quaker firm in the quiet English village of Street, Somerset, become the ‘baddest’ shoes in Jamaica? (Nice one, Jamie)

‘Clarks in Jamaica’ is the latest book by DJ and designer Al Fingers, providing a colourful take on Clarks’ celebrated status on the island – where for decades they have ruled as the ‘champion shoes’.

This previously unseen style reference tells the story of Clarks in Jamaica – from their arrival in the West Indies one hundred years ago, through to their adoption as the Rudeboy and Rasta shoe of choice during the 1960s and beyond. Just the ting for shoe lovers!
