Clay brick walkways can last your lifetime, they don't fade much but do absorb some airborne elements, however a power wash once in awhile will help maintain the brick color.
Clay paver vs Concrete paver for a walkway..
It depends on Budget and design,,,,and longevity.
Concrete pavers work well in many applications of brick walkways, they are manufactured with the design in them and are faster to install reducing cost and allow for in-ground drainage in the brick design.
However..The clay brick will outlast a concrete brick by at least 40 years.
And the colors wont fade away in a clay brick.
we can design the base to allow for drainage even over concrete , allowing the brick paver to be installed over a much stronger and lasting base then a concrete paver Or clay paver over gravel and sand.
The mortar set paver Is by far the strongest and lasting way to go,
we install them over a compacted gravel base and concrete base slab, and grout in between the joints with a weather struck joint .
There are many type of sealers that can be used over brick that penetrate and last for a few years, I have yet to see any last much more than a couple years so resealing is a must .

We build our brick walkways over a concrete base as much as possible.
It will last much longer than over sand and wont move around like sand base pavers can do over time.
Clay brick modular pavers ( allow mortar joints) and regular 4 x 8 inch pavers are for sand set with no mortar in between, however we still can install these over concrete and a drain system that gives it better strength but allows water through to if wanted.
