Adverts ADVERTS

Clarks Shoes Advertisements

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

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!

    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.
