Two feet on Earth: connecting to the world around us – Galahad Clark

About This Episode

On Change Makers today is Galahad Clark, from the family who brought us Clarks, the British shoe retailer founded in 1825. Galahad joins Michael to share why he founded Vivobarefoot, the shoe brand that allows wearers the freedom and flexibility to move as if they were indeed barefoot. As the seventh generation of the Clark shoemaking dynasty, Galahad looks to live up to his family legacy not only in the products that he makes, but in the impact he wants his business to have on the world.


Galahad Clark, Founder, Vivobarefoot

Passionate about the health of people and the planet, Galahad is calling for a change to come in the shoe industry, disrupting how we think about what we put on our feet: where our shoes come from and the damage they can cause to us and the environment.
