"Dear Sir/Madam, I was shocked and disappointed to find very few references to Clarks Magic Steps on the internet.
"These shoes shaped my childhood.
"If you would be kind enough to help me locate the advert for, or any images of said shoes, all will be forgiven, and I will bestow upon you your weight in Wagon Wheels, Orange Clubs and Umbungo juice drinks"
and was shocked to receive a reply…
"Thank you for your email regarding Magic Steps. I'm afraid that we stopped making this particular range a couple of years ago.
"We did this because we decided to concentrate on developing new styles.
"I know this is disappointing to you, but I hope you'll be able to find a style you like in our latest season of styles online.
" I have passed your comments on to our design team, who will take your feedback on board when planning future styles.
"Thank you for taking the time to contact us and for your interest in Clarks
