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.

I wear a 10.5 but I ordered a half size down a per other reviews, and it was definitely the way to go. The heel feels a bit snug but I think it's just the style. These don't have any arch support so I might add insoles. They look really great and will definitely be a staple. I ordered the dark grey suede but it really looks more like a dark greyish brown, which is fine because it will go with everything.

I ordered these in a size 12 because that is what I am in every other shoe and Zappos says they are true to size. They are not though, they are a half size larger and of course Clarks does not make half sizes or at least a size 11.5. I am giving these shoes a awful score of one star because I can't ever wear these because they don't meet my needs offering a size that works for me which is really disappointing since I like everything else about them. So if you are a true size 12, sorry to be the bearer of bad news but at least you wont have to be let down twice ordering a 12 and then a 11, having both not work out.

These boots are really comfortable. Other review(s) mention there's some pain in your ankle/Achilles during the break-in period but I haven't experienced that.

Love these shoes. Purchased them for my 28 year old brother and he is a big fan; says they are very comfortable. The color is very rich. He wears a consistent 10.5 and we had to exchange for the 9.5 b/c they were one whole size too big.

These shoes are amazing. They make any outfit look incredibly classy. However, if you are looking for arch support, these are not for you. They are flat as anything and have pretty much no support, but I usually wear flip-flops so that does not bother me.

Great product, I purchased this shoe based on the reviews from Zappos. There is plenty of color combinations available, and the build quality is really top notch. This is my first pair of Clarks, but it definitely won't be the last. I'm usually a 10.5, and purchased a 10 based on the feedback from everyone.

I'm very satisfied with these boots. They go well with anything you can wear brown shoes with. I got the oxblood since suede does not do well in the snow and I'm glad that I did.

Awesome boot. Saw it in a men's magazine, I think it was 'Details', jumped on to Zappos and ordered an 11 (my normal size). The 11 turned out to be a tad long so I ordered a 10.5. Perfect fit!

A stylish boot you're sure to enjoy. I purchased the grey color version. It may sound far fetched, but I receive lots of compliments on them. The boots are very cool. For wet weather, the sole makes it an ideal choice over your leather soled shoes. My foot is wide, but these 'medium' width boots appear to have been built on a generously wide last.

Pretty solid choice if you're looking for a Chukka type boot. Green sole is not as loud as you might think. I bought a half size down since they will stretch out with use.

This is a great looking shoe, and once broken in, it's super comfortable. My major qualm is that the rubber soles wear through relatively quickly rendering the shoe leaky and unwearable. This is based on wearing daily for about 8 months so perhaps that's natural, but I have not had this problem with other shoes worn for similar or longer durations.

First off kudos to Zappos and their service agent. I had bought the Wallabees about 3 years ago and they're great but they always felt a little loose, so when it came time to pick up the desert boots I thought I would go half a size down (based on some comments). But when they arrived they were a lot tighter than I had anticipated. So I sent them back to Zappos...hassle free! Very simple process and super quick. I tell a lot of people how wicked of a service they provide. Now back to the shoes. Well, I gave them 5 stars in every category so I must like them. Once I got the right size it took a day or two for it to mold to my feet, but after that, the rest is history. These shoes are a must in anyone's shoe collection! Will be picking up another pair shortly.

Brands I'd also recommend: Dr.Martens, Converse, Boss

These are easily my new favorite pair of shoes. I usually live in my Doc Martens, but they're not the best for the sweltering summers in New York. These give me the same look while being much cooler and a thousand times more comfortable.

Very pleased with this product; very stylish, comfortable and sneaky as advertised! I am more pleased with Zappos. The customer service advertised is no joke. I found this product at a lower price than every other source I went to, and they even gave me overnight shipping for free! Regardless of whether or not you purchase this particular shoe, I highly recommend staying with Zappos. Everything from the welcome email to the shipping gift has me wooed and in love!

From the moment I laid my eyes on these Boots, I immediately fell in love with them. Maybe it's because I love anything with the Union Jack flag, but lets be serious, the design of the flag does look pretty good on these boots. The feel and comfort of these boots is amazing. I do suggest to layer them with a waterproof coat to maximize the cleanliness of them.

I ordered these and two days later they were at my door. I got my regular size 11 but they were a bit too big so I returned them and promptly received my 10 1/2 for a perfect fit. These shoes are comfortable and look great for casual occasions. I can recommend these shoes and I can highly recommend Zappos!

Nice shoe. I had a problem with the heal slipping alot at first. I took the shoes to a cobbler and actually had them put a third pair of eyelets in the shoe. I can now tighten them up a lot better and are becoming one of my favorite shoes.

These are my go-to shoes. I work long days, sometimes 13 hours and these are my "long day" shoes. They feel great to wear and offer enough support so my back doesn't hurt after wearing them all day. The only reason I did not give them 5 shining stars is the bottom gum. The bottom gum got extremely dirty within a few times of wearing them which bothers me but no one notices and actually think that they are supposed to be a dark somewhat charcoal color. Great shoe overall, can't wait to get in some other colors.
