Choosing Styles The average adult body can absorb up to 750 tons of pressure via walking throughout a given day. Clarks shoes and boots take in up to a third of said pressure and shock that normally would travel from the feet and ankles up through the knees, hips, back, and neck. Activity Before purchasing a new pair of shoes, consider your daily activities, particularly for work. Are you outdoors most of the day and subject to a variety of weather conditions? If so, a closed-front and/or waterproof shoe may fit the bill. Are you a teacher, medical professional, or otherwise on your feet most of the day? A shoe with great support, durable soles, and adequate cushioning will be a smart choice. Do you have a desk job? If so, a variety of styles, heel heights, and support may be appropriate. Don’t hesitate to ask a Clarks sales associate for recommendations – they’ll be most familiar with the styles best suited for a wide roster of activities. Movement If you have an active lifestyle, with lots of walking and recreational activities, finding a shoe with great support and flexibility is a must. Lace-up styles will enable you to best customize your fit, while shoes made from leather are ideal for breathability and for conforming over time to your unique foot shape. The average adult takes 7,500 to 10,000 steps every day, and with those steps over the course of a day, will absorb 750 tons of pressure throughout the body. Whether you’re constantly on your feet or work a desk job, your foot care and comfort is important overall long-term health and well-being.
