The Empowering Reason Freida Pinto Is One Of The Faces Of Clark's New Campaign


Fall always seems to go by in a flash, right? And in order to take advantage of everything it has to offer — the apple picking, the foliage, the farmers market (the list goes on) — you’ll need footwear that can keep up with you. After all, nothing ruins a day filled with fun autumn activities like an uncomfortable pair of shoes. But, lucky for you, Clarks' Fall/Winter 2019 Collection is here with a slew of styles that’ll have you stepping into the new season on the right foot.

Founded in 1825, the iconic British brand is known for creating footwear that’s equal parts style and comfort. Each season Clarks offers up shoes that are fashionable yet practical for all-day wear, and this latest lineup is no exception. With Freida Pinto and Alexander Skarsgård as the faces of its new Autumn/Winter 2019 global campaign, Clarks furthers its brand message that you can have comfort in every situation.

"Clarks and I share a common understanding of the need for comfort, because that is something in the world of fashion that is really not preached," said actress and activist, Freida Pinto, in a press release from the brand. "At the beginning of my career I was told I had to sacrifice comfort for the sake of style and being a fashion icon, which I think is not true at all — so I think Clarks and I have a common idea of what comfort really means and I find the collaboration very organic."

"Over the years I've gotten more informed and become more knowledgable about the different ways of embracing fashion and being stylish", Pinto explains in an interview with TZR. "Now, I find that I feel most comfortable in my skin. I feel comfortable in the way I dress, and to me none of the rules, really matter".

In the mix, you'll find everything from sneakers and boots to loafers, so you shouldn't have a problem selecting a style (or two) that'll not only suit your personal aesthetic, but keep your feet feeling comfortable. Case in point: The $170 Trace Pine is a lightweight, chunky work boot that’ll bring a grounding force to all your favorite fall outfits while providing you with long-lasting comfort thanks to the brand’s dual density Cushion Plus™ technology.

But, if you're on the hunt for an everyday Chelsea boot, make sure to take a peek at the Clarkdale Arlo style for $160. The classic, low boot's simple silhouette is offered in several different neutral hues in both leather and suede — making them a pair you can match up with pretty much everything in your closet. Even better? The boots feature a full-length cushion and moisture-wicking OrthoLite® footbed.

You shouldn't have to choose between style and comfort when it comes to your footwear. So on that note, continue on to see a selection of new arrivals that'll let you have the best of both worlds, and head over to Clarks to scope out more styles for the season.
