Famous British shoe brand since 1825. While Clarks stores may not have size 9s in stock, their UK website does have some size 9 styles to choose from. Unfortunately they're doing far fewer 9s in 2022 than a couple of years ago. Clarks are the brand I've been able to rely on most over the years for comfortable everyday shoes particularly their Unstructured, Trigenic and Cloudstepper ranges. Free UK returns.
