Clarks reveals plans for gender neutral school shoes

‘Clarks has announced plans for unisex school shoes.

The announcement comes after the shoe brand was criticised for “sexist” shoes for children earlier this summer.

In a statement on the company website last month, Clarks says it is promoting a “gender neutral ethos” following “customer feedback.”

The statement reads: “Clarks has a gender neutral ethos that anyone can choose any style they would like.

“Over the past few seasons, following customer feedback and market research, we have focused on creating more unisex shoes and we are looking at a number of elements of our business to promote this gender neutral ethos, both on our website and within our stores.’
