The campaign includes four videos for the brand’s ‘hero styles’, which include ‘Bodkin Bay’, ‘Henderson Sky’, ‘Dollar Craze’ and ‘Scent Bottle’.

Clarks is using Aurasma's technology to make the content more easily discoverable via its press ads.

As long as a smartphone or tablet user has the Aurasma Lite app, they can 'film' the ad with their device's camera to trigger the video content.

Users will be able to click through from the videos to the Clarks website in order to continue browsing.

The Aurasma app is available on iPhones, iPads and high-powered Android smartphones.

Clarks claims to be the first UK footwear brand to experiment with the Aurasma technology, which is gaining traction in other sectors with brands including Marks & Spencer adopting the technology.
