Measuring Feet in the 21st Century
The Archive often deals with enquiries about foot measuring at Clarks and a new initiative has just been launched by the company which builds on its long heritage of foot fitting. An article on the BBC News website shows how iPads have been adapted for foot fitting and shows several examples of gauges from our collection.
This project has been running at Clarks for some time and the Archive has been donated examples of the prototypes for the permanent collection.
I worked on software for a Clarks foot gauge around 1980. It looked like the 1967 model.
