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.

Terrible product in my opinion; one shoe (right) feels way larger than left, so much so it's hard to believe that there's any chance that both are 9.5s. Unfortunately, I wore them to work for a day before I was able to realize that the right is much too large and it feels like my right heel wants to bust through the back because the shoe is too large, my heel is slipping to the back, and the boot doesn't offer enough support in the heel. But for the return policy (i.e., that worn shoes cannot be returned), I would be sending these back in favor of another brand.

Probably the most basic comfortable shoe I have ever purchased. I have 2 suede pairs and the black leather pair. The shoes were received promptly, and even before the expected delivery date.

Love! I ordered these desert boots in navy blue suede and absolutely love the color/style. I called the Clark's store down the road and the lady on the phone said, "No. We don't have navy blue. I've never even seen this boot in navy blue." She wasn't friendly at all (which is not altogether surprising here in New Jersey). My mood turned upside down when I realized that Zappos had this shoe in navy blue suede and cheaper than the store price for the other colors. Superbly comfortable boot. They look fantastic with my camel/acorn/khaki colored pants. I'm sure you'll be able to coordinate the black version with more outfits, but I needed something to wear with my navy blue shirts for a more polished look without wearing dress shoes. The boots feel very solid and sturdy. The leather is durable and the opening is wide to the point that I'm not required to tie and untie the laces every time I wear them. Perfect boot in my opinion!

This might actually be my favorite pair of shoes ever. They're comfortable, go well with both casual and dressier clothes and, most importantly, they just look great on. They're not too clunky, too pointy, too square-toed just a great pair of shoes. I took the advice of the other reviewers and got a 1/2-size smaller than I usually get. It was good advice. Although I am a true 9 1/2, in sneakers and other shoes I usually take a 10 because my feet are wide. I got the 9 .5 and they fit perfectly. My only reason for not giving 5 stars across the board is the laces do feel a bit flimsy. Doesn't feel like they'll go more than a couple of months before one rips off in my hand tying it. Shoelaces are easy to come by and would not let that deter me from buying these again in the future. I really really love them!

These Desert Boots are probably my all time favorite boots now. They looked a little weird and "hippyish" when I first saw them but seeing all those positive reviews just made me HAVE to try a pair. To say I love them would be an understatement. They are without a doubt the most comfortable boots I've ever worn. I LOVE putting them on. Feels like I'm walking on marshmallows. They do run big but it just makes it easier to slip on an off! I first bought the black pair (which has top quality leather) and just came back two weeks later for the burgundy leather pair. A girl lastnight said I have a sexy James Dean look to me, and I blamed it on my black boots and black leather jacket. Anyway, if you're still on the fence by now maybe you should just forget about it and go get some second hand jungle boots. (BTW these boots are VERY easy to keep clean . . . just take a wet rag and wipe down the leather. They'll look brand spankin. Voila, no polish required.

Brands I'd also recommend: LaCoste, Doc Martens.

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.

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.
