These Clarks are made for walking

In case you missed the memo, Clarks is cool again.

Yes, the shoe manufacturer is taking on City chic and, it seems, winning. Need proof? Check out the AW14 collection – created to match a sharp silhouette, the shoes are versatile enough to go with suits, jeans and everything in between, but with a few dashes of contrast to add that touch of flair. It's Clarks as you've rarely – if ever – seen it before.

The Gatley Walk (£89.99) is living proof. Available in black, dark navy or, our favourite, in understated but striking chestnut, they're a mixture of classic and contemporary, with an eye-catching line of contrast stitching that runs around the sole and sets the whole thing off. We told you Clarks was cool.
