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!

Bought these for my HS student as I was tired of sneakers with his jeans everyday. Great fit, very comfortable and very popular, he got a lot of compliments.

Bought these for my husband for Christmas to dress up jeans or wear with khakis. Of course they arrived quickly with Zappos. The leather is quality and they are a very stylish shoe. My husband's only complaint was that they were not easy to walk in. I think he's gotten used to it now; however, just the basic style of the boot doesn't provide much of a grip around your ankle, possibly even foot- which he wasn't used to. I can see the laces might not hold up, but if you're a man who takes good care of shoes, I'm sure they would be fine. Also because they are all leather they will require some upkeep. They are already a little scuffed after a month of wear but some leather conditioner would take care of that I think.

Been buying from Zappos for years now and my satisfaction peaks with this shoe. This Clarks boot is stylish and highly durable. Fits very well/true to specifications. However, with wear and tear, the material will naturally stretch to half a size larger (over extended period of time).

Purchased as a gift for my son, he loves this pair of boots. He said they fit well (I got the size 11 when he usually wears an 11.5). Said very nice quality, and I am very happy with Zappos super fast shipping.

I'd also recommend: Lucchese, Old Gringo

Comfortable shoe. Feels like no other shoe I have had. Feels a little insecure since it has minimal laces and only 2 eyes. This is definitely a shoe and not a boot.
