School Shoes Tests:
All Clarks School Shoes endure a series of up to 50 tests to make sure they are fit to wear the Clarks name …
And that’s before they get tested for real by local school children who need to give us the thumbs up before any of our shoes hit the shelves in store.
The 50 tests prove Clarks school shoes:
- Fit Better
- Last Longer
- Remain Comfortable
- Scuff Resistant
Leathers, linings and sock materials are tested to over 50,000 cycles so even the most active children can stay smart for longer – well, their shoes anyway!
Soles are flexed up to 30,000 times and leathers up to 500,000 times so we can be sure our shoes stay supple no matter how far a child skips or sprints.
We test our shoes in all conditions so they are not great for skidding round the playground
Buckles and straps, zips and laces are put through a selection of rigorous tests to ensure they can withstand being tugged on by the toughest little hands.
