Painful to the eyes, I agree, but it does sound as though it has been translated from another language which somehow offends me less. Other European languages don't have the possessive apostrophe and people seem to have difficulty with its use. The again, a lot of people who have English as their first language seem to think they're dong the right thing by putting an apostrophe before any 's' at the end of a word.
Near where I live, there's a furniture shop which has a huge sign on the ouside wall saying "Sofa's". It hurts my eyes every time I pass it by. And near my parents, there's a shop called "Clever Buy's". Ouch!

I think someone needs to have a word with Clarks:

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

NO excuses.

Is it the spelling of Mascarpone and Kestrel? I wonder how and why they did that? I can only presume the sandals are named after the bird, since the other word is soar? But I fail to see why you would name a pair of boots after a type of cheese!

I agree with tethers, - those sandals are just awful.

I wish it were only the sandals which made my eyes bleed...

And yes, if you are going to be 'keerrrazy' and name your footwear after soft cheeses and birds of prey, at least spell them correctly.

They also can't make up their minds about whether Womens or Women's is correct so they've used both.

I do wonder whether the incorrect spelling of the floopy names is deliberate, you know as in a "Boyz Toyz" way?

No they're probably just stupid.

I tend to assume that websites with dodgy spelling are for dodgy companies.
