A DJ playing hip-hop, a crowd of local sneakerheads and scenesters, and craft beer were not unusual for a party at the Harvard Square sneaker boutique Concepts . What was unusual? The brand being feted: Clarks .
The 200-year-old English shoe company, which has its US headquarters in Newton Upper Falls, just introduced a line called Sport. And while the shoes may borrow the silhouettes of some iconic looks developed by the company more than 50 years ago, it’s the first time Clarks has produced a shoe in a camouflage print or a leopard print.
