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 amazing. I usually wear a size 12. I went true to size, they were a bit too big, but I will manage. I ordered the all black suede boots. They go with anything. I was interested in these boots for a while now. I kept hesitating on ordering them, but I am glad that I finally did. Thanks, Zappos!

Everyone is right about them being sized large. Order 1/2 size down as I did and they should be fine.

This is a shoe that should be a staple in every mans wardrobe and is IMO one of the best lkg casual shoes, especially with jeans. The beeswax leather is favored more in the colder climates where things regularly get wet, however they can be a bit hot on the feet when it's warm. Personally I like the look and fit of the suede. It was in fact what the original Clarks desert boot was designed with. Here in Southern Calif. and other warmer areas you will see much more of the suede not just because it looks good but cuz it's much more comfortable. As for 'color', what's displayed on the Internet is not all that accurate. The taupe distressed is in person not light at all and is flat out gray if that's what you are lkg for. The best shade IMO is the Oakwood suede. It's not 'orange' at all as some pics depict and is a really nice light brown that looks awesome and goes with everything. I don't go out of my way to keep them looking perfect. In fact they look even better with a bit of wear. Go down a half size for a perfect fit.

These are just good looking shoes. The only downsides for me is when the sole wears down you can't replace them easily, and the shoe laces break very easily.

I love the shoes but the right shoe lace broke within two weeks. I think that one of the eyelets wasn't set correctly and wore away the lace. Zappos won't offer replacement laces! :(
