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.

These definitely run at least a size larger than listed, but once you figure out the right size they are very cool shoes. I like the dark blue leather, it should look great with dark jeans. I like to add a heel insert for a little extra comfort and stability.

I'd also recommend: Adidas, Mizuno

Absolutely disastrous. I had a pair of these in college and was excited to have another. Tried them on in the apartment, felt great. Wore them to the office. I take the subway, I sit at a desk all day. Look down in the afternoon of *the very first day* to see the right sole is splitting in two from the toe. ON THE VERY FIRST DAY. Sending back.

Great Looking Casual! These are very foot friendly boots. They are super easy to get into, the laces stay tied and the dark color keeps scrapes and dirt camouflaged. These tie a little lower than some boots so at first it feels like the ankles aren't supported, which frankly their not, but it actually makes them very comfortable and light.

I really like this shoe in the store I bought it in. Went home feeling excited to wear them to work. Simply put, they were too big. The size said 11, but it felt like a 11.5. The leather was extremely tough and irritating on the ankle. They are also extremely loud, like a squeaky door, as you rock back and forth. I wore them several times hoping something would change, mainly because I liked the look so much. However, the comfort was not there and I returned them to the store. Wish they would have worked out for me like some of these others.

Awesome boots! I wear the desert boots for all walking around Boston in the fall and winter and they remain comfortable. I also went on a moderately long hike the other day in them and they felt great. I do find that Clarks in general run a size smaller than whatever size Nike sneaker I wear, but the width is true to me.
