I met a guy in a bar last week who said it was possible to get Clarks shoes in Hanoi.
I am looking for these http://www.clarks.co.uk/find/department-is-men/customproductattribute6-is-desert/product-is-20318797 since I lost my boyfriend's beloved pair in the taxi during our recent move.
Anyone have any idea where to begin? I know it is a shot in the dark.
HI, i know many shops selling Clark shoes. The shoes are made in Vietnam under license of Clark or something the same. you can find them at 44 Lê Đại Hành shop (they sell clothes as well) or some shops nearby.
you can also find them in many shoes shops at the end of Phan Bội Châu street. This kind of shops is called Vietnam export shop (VNXK)
i bought a lot of Clark shoes, love them :)
MMmmmm...$15 dollar shoes. Sounds comfortable, durable, and genuine!
Do they say "Clarks" in really big fluorescent letters on the shoes so everybody will know how fashionable and wealthy I am? Sounds like they'll go great with my $10 Levi's and my Douchie and Banana T-Shirt.
Now my wardrobe will be able to do justice to my pimpin' ride with the Luis Vuitton seat-cover.

As far as I know, the shoes are Made in VN according to order from Clark headquater. those shoes will be exported. but during manufacturing process, there are many shoes which have mistake and can't meet the order's require. Those shoes was distribute to some shops. and it's the reason why the price is cheap. and i rarely find any shoes with low quality because the mistakes mentioned above are not remarkable, we rarely see it.
Bought some Clark shoes, that, for all my limited knowledge, seem to be close to the real thing -- they are comfy, the leather and stitching has held up well, and they were about 15usd.
The location: A friend gave me a tip to go to 44 Le Dai Hanh - runs diagonally by Vincom Towers. It's down through a store front - go through and all the way back - small room with lots of shoes from some good names. They tend to run big - not much under size 38. Little to no English.
Actually, right along that block are other MIV-type stores, some multi-level, worth checking for kids clothes, etc.
I went here on this advice and would like to thank @kylie for the info. I'm size 44, there were Clarks there, but I chose some others (forget brand). I had a choice of probably 10-15 pairs in my size, which is one-off occurrence over the last 12 months in Hanoi. Also bought a pair of sandals that looked nice too, both pairs for about $65. All prices are marked - no haggling. And no English spoken (went with missus).
