    Oh Yeah!!!! Clarks Commandos. Brilliant marketing there. Question: How to get boys wanting to wear black, lace-up shoes. Answer, call them Commandos. Yup, I was won over and relished getting measured up (in Clarks' foot measuring machine) for my Commandos which I was led to believe turned me into a real British Commando. Fell for that one, didn't I?

    I had a pair of those ,god that must have been about 1970! I also had a pair of shoes with tyre tread on the soles. I think they were something to do with scalextric, grand prix I think they were called, either that or i took too many drugs when I was 18 and made it up!

    FWIW, those weren't Commandos -- those were Wayfinders, which came with a "Be a Tracker in Wayfinders" badge

    Commandos had no particularly special features, but also came with a "C" badge, in a variety of colours...
