Clarks get knitted.

These fancy pants Clarks shoes are on sale in August. Here’s more info from the press release …

‘Clarks Originals has joined forces with Thistle & Broom, the ubiquitous Scottish luxury brand known for its exquisite fair trade Fair Isle knits to produce a limited edition Desert Boot. Only a total of 1,200 pairs of the very special Desert Boots will be available and each pair has been lovingly created by 1 of the 35 hand knitters that live across Scotland. The knitters include a dedicated group of women between 32 and 76 years old. Knitting is a passion for these ladies including 76 year old Grace Blaikie and Anita Rhind, 72, both of whom have been knitting for 70 years. Although some of the ladies won’t admit quite how long they have been knitting, their combined experience comes to a total of more than 1316 years.’

Nice.
