These shoes are great if you want to be silently light on your feet. I think these would of been great for the Native Americans back in the day.

Very uncomfortable, do not plan on wearing these shoes for a long time. I am very tolerant when it comes to discomfort but this shoe truly is uncomfortable.

Love Clarks desert boots. Been buying them for many years, just bought 3 more pr: black, brown, taupe (suede). All look great. A few grumbles... this new taupe color is lighter than the previous. I like the earlier taupe better, seemed to be a warmer grey. Saw one comment about the black boot developing lighter color along the crease lines. True that these newer chukkas must use a different dye process. So, dude, have you ever heard of black shoe polish? It will darken the creases. All are extremely comfortable, don’t tire my feet, and as they get worn-in, feel better and better. Could they use a bit more arch support? Maybe. But they don’t seem to bother me at all. The crepe soles are great for long walks, and are completely silent even on the hardest surfaces. But these are primarily for casual wear, don’t exactly work with a tux ; ) Tho you might get away with the black and maybe one or two others in semi-formal situations in a pinch. Buy 'em a half-size larger and you can wear heavier socks for even the coldest winter days (but don’t get the suede ones wet). What the heck more do you want from a pair of shoes!?

Bought these for my husband, and he loves them! We were a little worried because he has wide feet. They were tight when he tried them on but have stretched quickly to fit just right!

I have lots of feelings about dees boots. D boots look rad, simple and stylish. Take a few days of breaking in/getting used to and then they're bombdig. I order a half-size down from my usual. I've owned numerous pairs whilst residing in urban environments: tho comfy, I've never been a fan of the crepe sole as it seems to absorb dirt and ends up looking nasty. This doesn't seem to bother some and perhaps it shouldn't as there's likely comparable filth on all shoes, but I never liked the aesthetic. I just ordered the wine leather boots. Gorgeous packaging: I cracked a beer and took damn near 20 minutes just opening the box and savoring the delights. The wine is a bit more winey than pictured, really gorgeous but borderline flashy, far as hue is concerned. I am not a pimp. A primary reason for selecting this shade was slightly darker sole, which I reckoned would obscure the discoloration. My neuroses re: sole gunk notwithstanding, these boots are great. Dress em up or down, from the back to the front, hmmmm baby. Zappos 4 life.

I love these shoes! I will say that the color becomes distressed looking after wearing for a week. Not that it is a problem, just be aware. They are comfortable and I have had quite a bit if compliments.

Like Clarks desert boots but in northeast Ohio you need waterproof boots 3/4 of the year. Waterproofing ruins the look of suede boots. These beeswax leather boots can be weatherproofed without ruining their finish.
