Clarks Shoes Advertisements

It might not be impressive these days, but back in the 80's Clarks had the most high-tech advertisements around! A kid gets out of bed, puts on his shoes and he is transported to a strange computer land, like an old atari game, and defeats 'squared' monsters. Classic stuff!



does anybody out there know where or how to get the advert for wayfinders shoes, yes the ones with compass in the heel,and animal soles, any information would be so helpful to me..thanks....

I had a pair of wayfinder shoes but the compass fell out of the heel and made them really uncomfortable to wear. What a stupi place to keep a compass anyway!

In the 70s they had an ad where someone drew a shoe onto a child's foot, and afterwards it turned into a rather smart pair of red patent shoes. I was forever scribbling on my feet after seeing that.

I've just found out that the girl in the Magic Shoes ad is my girl friend Michele. I knew she'd done a few TV ad campaigns as a child but didn't realise what a child star she was.

Vanessa - I remember them - the girl had shoes on and when you bought htem i clarks you got ones that had a key on the bottom of the heel, you also got a badge in the shape of the key that was meant to be like the one the girl opened the door with in the advert

Was there an clarks advert where the girl had red shoes on in a magic kind of land? Its a very patchy memory!

OMG!! I found the advert for the Magic Steps shoes!!!! Thought I'd give it a try and it's there!

That advert was so cool. I went to the shoe shop to get a pair thinking they were great, however i was major dissapointed when i saw them on my feet so never bothered getting them!
