Teenage companion. Living in Lagos, Nigeria in 1971, these were the only real quality shoes you could buy. The only other brand was Bata. I thought they were the ugliest, but had a lot of teen "firsts" while wearing them. They held up extremly well in the tropical heat and downpours of equatorial Africa. My dad and brother wore them too. Our "dessies" felt right at home when we were in Kenya's Tsavo game park sneaking through the red dust and acquiring its color while trying to photograph rhino. Their last encore was dinner at the swank Dorchester Hotel in London where strangers of equally swank pedigrees complimented us on how well one of their national icons fared in a posh setting. Years later, in 2001 I renewed my bond with them and still attest to their comfort and classic styling and compliments received even though my safaris are limited to the hot and dusty streets of urban America. Cheerio!

Cute but not so comfy. I purchased these for my hubby for Christmas. He wore them a couple of times with very heavy socks, but the backs still cut into the backs of his legs and made him bleed. He has since glued "foam" into the backs of the shoes, but they still hurt him. I think I may have wasted a few bucks on this pair of shoes!

These boots are very comfortable and go with everything from jeans to dress pants. They are great for cooler weather and easy to clean.

Loved the boots. They run a half size long. They are a little wider feeling in the heal than I'm use to but thick socks seem to help. The sole initially turned me off. It's very squishy. They look good on and no one see sole up that close.

I had to exchange the first pair due to sizing and I'm happy with the exchange process, but I'm really unhappy with the condition the next pair came it. One of the shoes had scuffs all over the front and no stuffing inside. I'm not sure what to do because I like the shoe, but am annoyed that i obviously got a shoe that was tried and worn.

These boots are great. I have a number of Chukka boots including Red Wing Heritage and J.Crew Seude. These are my favorite for a number of reasons - they're comfortable, the leather breaks in nicely, and they look terrific. Can modify and individualize them pretty easily with various shoe-laces. I recommend these highly.

These are "classic" Clark Desert Boots. I purchased my first pair in 1958 and wore them for a three month track through Europe. The new pair that I just purchased are essentially the same as the ones that I bought in 1958, except that they are now made in Vietnam instead of England, and a size 10.5 is now what (in the old days) once was a size 11. The shoe runs a little larger now days. Arch support in this type of shoe is rather scant, and for real walking comfort the addition of something like a Dr. Scholl's arch support is a good thing. The width is accurate. Overall a very nice, classic feel and look.

I'd also recommend: Rockport and Frye
