I've worn these shoes for years and years, starting back in the '60s and have never known a more comfortable shoe ever. I like the boot and have three different colors. I favor the dark brown suede with jeans because they show less dirt and no blue dye from the jeans. The comfort factor is extraordinary. I ordered a half size smaller and it works fine. I am new to Zappos but will come back here for all my shoe purchases. Their service is by far the best I've experienced online. Thank you Zappos.

Stylish with slacks, sweats and/or jeans. I also bought a black pair. I wear these Wallabees very often. My other shoes are sitting in the closet collecting dust. Delivery was extremely fast.

I like these shoes, but they do have some issues. They run a bit large. They really hold the heat in. The leather has a wax coating or something on it and your feet will really heat up in these guys. The sole is thick and the shoe actually feels a bit unstable laterally. The laces do nothing. This is a casual shoe so keep your expectations low there, but you feel kind of perched up in these guys. It took a little while to break them in. They look really nice and are generally comfortable.The square toe, casual leather is a good look. Otherwise I'd have returned them.

I normally wear an 11 or 11.5, but had to get a 10 in these! If you can, try them on somewhere first, but once you get the right size they feel great.

Extremely comfortable, stylish shoes, but not the most durable shoes out there. Mine last about 1 year to 18 months or so of pretty regular wear. I admit to being hard on shoes but my other less expensive Clarks were bought at the same time and they are still serviceable after 3 years of wear. The soft sole wears relatively quickly and the suede is prone to wearing down in the back if you drive a lot.

Wanted to love these. I have been wanting a pair for a long time. The toe box is narrow, digs into the pinky toe. Also the shoes are heavy. I bought inserts to make the footbed more comfortable but it has not worked.

Walks a

from florida

Years ago when I first wore these as a kid, they felt like walking on clouds. I recently purchased another pair half expecting the same feeling especially after reading the reviews. I don't find the shoes to be as comfortable as I remember but I expect them to eventually get more comfortable over time. My chief complaints are: sizing - Yes, get a half size smaller so you don't get heel slippage. But I'm going to have to stretch my shoes because they aren't that comfortable in the toe box area. With time I expect the shoe to stretch and feel better. A half size larger would have been too large. Arch support - these shoes don't have adequate arch support and inserts will most likely solve that problem. Years ago these shoes felt like walking on clouds...the reality today is that I don't get that same feeling but at the same time the potential exists...in time...with the leather stretching in the toe box area and with arch support inserts. This will be my last pair of Clarks. While excellent shoes, they aren't meant for everyone.

Zappos is the only place I can buy these "desert boots", as my husband calls them, in his size which is a mens 7. There isn't a shoe store anywhere that carries mens 7. He's worn them since their beginning and has always had a pair in his closet. Thank you Zappos.

Great shoe. It's very simple, yet distinctive like other Clark's classics. I hope they never discontinue it.

I have the pleasure of owning a piece of my youth & though I miss the made in USA which now says China. Great comfort and since I wear an insole on left foot it's hard for me to buy shoes, these do the job! I own them in two colors from Zappos, they have great customer service. This was my first time to buy shoes online!

I wore out a pair of these 20 years ago. I'm glad to have another pair--I thought Clarks had gone out of business. Eventually you'll wear through the toe area, but eventually is a long time. For casual, these are hard to beat.

Brands I'd also recommend: SAS--Sorry, Zappos.

Ewilson

from SE, Missouri

Never had a boot/shoe more comfortable right out of the box. I ordered a half size smaller than normal due to trying them on in store and knowing they fit me a little small. For the suede material a fabric protector is a must if you want them to stay clean for the most part because they do get a little dirty with that material. I think one person mentioned too narrow of a sole; they are narrow but I don't think as much so that its an inconvenience or uncomfortable. Wish I wouldn't have waited so long to get these because they are great, I'm definitely satisfied. Zappos is great as well, will do more shopping with them.

This is a Pretty Snazzy Shoe. It has some rocking style going in in that little sole! They are practically indestructible! But I did hear that the suede would get really dirty really fast, but that did not bring me down! So I went out and bought some spray that protects the suede from dirt and rain. Problem solved! I really recommend this amazing shoe!

I was surprised to be able to purchase this shoe. I have so many fond memories of my younger days and these shoes were part of it. Zappos is one of the best internet sites out there. Keep up the great work. It's always a pleasure to do business with you. John K.

from Boston, MA

Absolutely amazing shoe. i bought these shoes a week ago, and they have already broken in. i definitely recommend getting a few sizes smaller (i normally wear an 11.5 and i ended up purchasing a 10 in these) i have the oily leather, and these shoes look great, and feel great. the only time i take them off is when i go to sleep. Clarks really knows how to make a beautiful shoe. The crepe sole makes for an incredibly comfortable shoe, it really does feel like ou're walking on clouds. If you're on the line at all about buying these shoes, trust me, buy them.

Quite possibly the best casual fall shoe I have ever owned. They look great with jeans and the comfort is second to none. I will be purchasing another pair in suede here in the near future. The toe box is roomy and comfy with heavy socks.

Always have loved the classic design & comfort of the Clarks Wallabee. This was my 4th different color. I can wear Wallabees with jeans or slacks and know that the crepe sole will always be super comfortable.

One of the best pairs of shoes I have ever purchased. Super comfortable and I get compliments all the time. A lot of reviews saw to get a 1/2 size smaller than you normally wear...I definitely recommend doing this, as well, as the leather stretches slightly after the first wear.

I have owned many pairs of wallabees...the test I usually do to show endurance and ruggedness of my wallabees is stand in the tub with water not high enough to cover the whole boot but enough to immerse it 3/4 of the shoe then watch as they change colors (sand suede type). It doesn't ruin them it gives they character and they break in faster. Try that with all the colors Zappos offers. It's fun!
