Awesome looking boot. Runs a little large. I usually wear a 9.5/10 and I had to get a 9 in these.

I like the shape and style of these shoes, except for the color of outsole. My biggest issue is that these boots are very noisy. They creak with every step--the kind of sound you hear with a leather jacket. These are the noisiest boots I've ever had, hence the two stars.

Finally got the size right! I own 2 other desert trek classics from Clark ranging from size 9.5 to 10.5. These boots run half-size long for my foot. When it comes to comfort, the high ankle and stiff leather on the upper tends to make my ankles sore by the end of a day. Not sure if the cause is the constant light pressure or moderate atrophy because it's as if my foot is in a cast. (This has consistently been my experience with other high ankle leather footwear). Having said this, the beeswax leather is breaking in nicely; it was quite stiff out of the box but take 1 step and immediately the lighter color and creases begin to develop. Lastly, these boots look great in chinos and denim.

I will caveat this review with the fact that I have never owned high ankle boots before. At first they were most uncomfortable. The shoes are inflexible, hurt more than any other shoe I've used before and and I've never looked more ridiculous going up and downstairs trying to not hurt my chins every step. But dammit if they are not beautiful shoes. I hope they break in well and I learn how to clean/maintain the beeswax... I am not finding great help online.

I bought the black leather with black sole Mali Desert Boots over two years ago, and they felt amazing from the time I wore them out of the store. The extra lace holes make it fit better than regular desert boots where my feet feel like they are falling out. They are light and keep your feet warm. The biggest drawback is gum soles are definitely not meant for city streets. They lasted maybe 6 months before there were noticeable problems. Though I can no longer wear them when it rains (water through the sole), I wear them weekly as they fit with most social situations, look stylish and are still amazingly comfortable.

I have being wearing Clarks Originals my entire adult life and their my standards for cool casual shoes and boots. But I always have to order a full size down. I am size 10, so all of my Clarks Originals are size 9. They are a little tight at first but they stretch out after a few wears. This pair is great, I have them in black leather also and will buy another pair because this style is limited. Clarks Original the standard for timeless cool causal, for me at least.

I really love these boots in black leather. They're more comfortable and supportive than the regular/classic Clarks desert boots. I use an insole for added comfort, but have worn these often and for over a year. They're still one of my favorites, and I've gotten more than a few compliments. The laces wore out but are easily replaced.
