HOW OUR TECHNOLOGIES WORK

From cushioning, waterproofing and grip to exceptional lightness, softness,
flexibility and breathability, Clarks set the pace.

Ultralight, gait reactive flex and engineered deconstruction, a foot shaped fit and responsive
cushioning. The five advanced principles of Trigenic Flex take natural movement to a new level.

A zeolite carrier delivers active ingredients including ionic silver, which fights microbes by preventing respiration, inhibiting cell division and disrupting cell metabolism.

A waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® membrane combined with a high-performance lining insulates against the cold. Wet or cold, feet stay warm and dry.

A waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® membrane combined with an inner lining and protective knit keeps active feet dry and at just the right temperature.

Using the unique open-cell structure of an Ortholite® footbed, cushioning absorbs the impact of every step. An antimicrobial, high level breathability and moisture management keep active feet fresh, cool and dry.

Machine washable styles can be washed at 30°C with a non-bio detergent.

A waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® membrane combined with lightweight insulation, keeps feet dry and warm when it’s wet and cold.

The unique open-cell structure of Ortholite® high-performance footbed delivers long-lasting cushioning plus breathability and moisture-wicking.

Precisely placed, anatomically targeted dual density cushioning reduces strain on the ball of the foot, supporting the biomechanics of walking – the foot’s natural gait – and providing lasting comfort.

Unlike conventional boat shoes that release water through the sole, water is quickly and continuously expelled through small ducts in the sidewall, reducing the risk of slipping, sliding and aquaplaning.

Uniquely designed to deliver more from less, in-sole boards and toe puffs are eliminated and inside seaming is minimised. Featherweight materials enhance the exceptional lightness, softness, flexibility and breathability.

A gently curved, ‘rocker’ sole rolls from heel to toe with the motion of walking, minimising the amount the foot has to bend and flex, conserving energy and reducing fatigue.

Strobel construction, a deconstructed heel counter and toe box combine with materials, including microfibre and EVA, to minimise weight and optimise flex. Underfoot, Tetrasoft advanced technology combines flexible and lightweight construction with an ultra-soft insole for comfortable day long wear.

A pump in the heel draws in fresh air, circulates it around the foot before expelling it through concealed micro-channels. In tests, warm, moist air inside the shoes was replaced with fresh air every 10 steps.

Specially developed by our own experts, a responsive underfoot gel cushions the foot and flexes with its natural movement, helping to stop active feet from getting tired. Integrated technology also absorbs impact from the bottom and sides.

Specially engineered rubber soles made from a durable abrasion-resistant compound deliver maximum grip and stability in dry as well as wet conditions.
