Very durable and super stylish, Clarks Funny Dream shoes are a delight to own and wear. Did you know that Clarks Funny Dream have been around for decades. They are one of Clarks Classic designs. Only back in the day they were called Nature Trek. They have a really relaxed design so they go well with casual clothing like jeans and other neat fitting bottoms. Find them for sale above. Best prices online are found on eBay.
The Funny Dream have quite a strange design. The uppers are slightly wider than the sole, and rather than make the sole the same width, Clarks narrowed it down so that it creates a lipped appearance around the whole shoe.

Another “difference” with these shoes is the front. They haven’t been designed using the standard “shoe design” toe cap, such as with the Kickers low boot design. With Clarks Funny Dream the front stitching just stops and goes into the sole rather than going all the way around the shoe, creating a “Flick” type effect. See it below. Quite unique for this style of shoe.
These shoes are great, quite quirky and funky in little subtle ways and really high quality at the same time. The heel is around 1 inch high at its highest point. The uppers are made of soft Leather and certain pairs have some nice sewing detail, where it is a different colour to the shoe uppers, so it stands out and looks nice.
This detail is much more noticeable on the brighter pairs of Clarks Funny Dream, particularly the Orange and Pink pairs, where the stitching is White, so it stands out much more. Great colors for the up coming warmer seasons. Of course, you can always get a Brown Pair if you want to play it safe.
Best Price? Popular sizes and colourways, like Oxblood, Aubergine, Grey and Pink can be fairly sought after, and as a result can be quite expensive in sizes like UK 5 and UK 6. However, the Orange pairs can be picked up fairly cheap. The same goes for some of the various shades of Blue, Navy, and solid Black examples. The cheapest “best price” pairs are usually in the colours and sizes that no one really wants or needs.
One thing to note about Clarks Funny Dream, is that the sole is rather flat and the grip is minimal, so they can be quite slippery on some surfaces. Do not wear these shoes in ice or snow! And take caution if wearing them in wet conditions on smooth floors etc.
They are prone to letting in the rain. So perhaps buying a pair for the spring or summer is your best bet. Sizing can also be an issue. Buyers state that they would recommend you buy a half-size bigger than what you would usually take. Other than that, great shoes! And one common positive from most reviews is that these shoes are super comfortable.
