Product Description
Clarks in Jamaica is the self-published book by DJ and designer Al Newman AKA Al Fingers. The stylized 193 page photo-essay tells the story of Clarks brand shoes in Jamaica. From their arrival in 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, Clarks are truly the ‘Champion shoe’. Featuring current and historic photographs, interviews and never-before-seen archival material, particular focus is on the Jamaican singers, producers and musicians who have worn and sung about the Clarks shoe brand throughout the years.

In the words of Jamaican producer Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee: “From ever since, Clarks is a number one shoe inna Jamaica. Not just now, I’m talking from the Fifties come right up… Clarks stand the test of time inna Jamaica. All the other shoes come and bow right down at Clarks’ Foot.”
Written and designed by Al Fingers and featuring new photographs by Mark Read, Clarks in Jamaica, published by One Love Books.
