Clarks: Strategic move

Obvious fact: if a company has overcome two centuries and retained its leading position in the industry, you can learn a lot from it. Clarks has become a leader in the comfort shoes market thanks to successful strategic decisions over decades. And today, Clarks, using modern approaches in the strategic management of the corporate portfolio of brands, creates a successful case for newcomers to the industry.

The company Clarks with the spring-summer season 2019 presents an updated brand architecture. Clarks management has chosen the house of brands strategy, which is used when a company seeks to reach different target audiences and several price segments, while having broad production capabilities. The updated portfolio will contain a number of individual brands: Clarks, Clarks Originals, Collection by Clarks, Cloudsteppers by Clarks, Unstructured, Clarks Kids.

A clear division of the assortment will allow Clarks to attract more consumers and occupy a special place in different market segments: fashion, sports, comfort, classic. At the same time, the main advantages for all brands will remain comfort, manufacturability and many years of experience in creating shoes.

Russian buyers have long been familiar with two main collections - Clarks and Clarks Originals. The design philosophy and price positioning of these brands will continue in the near future.
