An innovative business idea in 1970 of importing quality Indian moccasins from North America into the UK led to the formation of the company, Clifford James
. The second innovation came with the formation of this company name, done by combining the middle names of the two founding business partners of this companyóKeith James Russel and Ian Clifford Garbutt. The UK market found this footwear very comfortable and from this came the realization that the need of the hour was comfortable shoes at economical prices.
