Clarks in Jamaica tells the story of the phenomenal popularity of Clarks shoes in Jamaica – from their initial journey from the quiet village of Somerset to the West Indies one hundred years ago, through to their adoption as the rudeboy and Rasta shoe of choice during the 1960s, and the filtering of this popularity into reggae and dancehall song lyrics. With a particular focus is on the Jamaican singers, producers and musicians who have worn and sung about Clarks shoes throughout the years, including Little John, Vybz Kartel, Popcaan, Jah Thomas, Henry "Junjo" Lawes, Trinity and many more.

Written and designed by Al Fingers. Photographs by Mark Read. Archive photographs by Beth Lesser, Peter Simon, Dave Hendley and others.
