Amazing! These shoes are extremely comfortable. The soles are soft and quiet. The gray color goes with nearly everything. The only problem is that short socks get sucked in to them and long ones stick out and look funny!

Surprise, surprise - I do not like to be negative, but...these shoes look to be a mens 9.5. I own 3 Clarks Wallabees two low cut, and one boot that is by far my fav. When I took out of the box...first I noticed that there was NO leather footbed lining from the ball of the foot to the toe. I could go on and on, but please tell it like it is. Love my Wallabees and wish I had more of a choice for women in the leather. I will be patient and wait for you to come to your senses. Wallabee boots are the best.

Previous reviewers gave me valuable information... I bought these based on reviews here while buying Wallabees. (Thank you other reviewers.) MS has caused neuropathy in the bottoms of my feet. Both shoes work great to help me walk. The Desert Treks were very tight to get on, thought it was a big mistake, but another reviewer said they would stretch, they did within minutes. I love them and am grateful for the reviews. Neat looking, very comfortable, true to size and very sturdy.

Give it time - I absolutely hated this shoe when I took it out of the box...now I wear it every single day. Wish it had a smooth leather sock liner, but once I get it on with my socks, it is great. Please, put smooth leather footbed from toe to heel, please that rough toe bed is not so good.

This is a very nice and comfortable shoe. For patent leather it is not very shiny except on the toe and heel. It will dress up a pair of casual pants and not be too casual for a dressy pair of pants. The shoe though is larger than expected. My heal come out when walking. I wear a size 7 med US. This is a size 7-7.5 or 38 medium. It is also just a tad wider. I wore a midweight sock with this. I bought another pair of Riekers the same size (different style shoe) that fits perfectly. The sole on this pair though seams a little more comfy. I am returning these and contemplating trying one size smaller.

The real deal - I needed a new pair of anything shoes, and everyone recommended Clarks. I decided to try them out and they are definitely everything they're cracked up to be. They look great--everyone loves them. Not gonna lie, I had a couple blisters the first few days, but leather always has to be worn in. Now they're perfect! You should really try these out!

Like This Shoe! I was looking for a casual shoe to wear with jeans. Although they are not as comfortable as they look like they would be, they don't necessarily bother my feet. Thanks Zappos.

New Favorite - I had been lusting after a pair of Desert Trek shoes ever since I saw them. I finally took the plunge and bought a pair about a month ago. These shoes have seldom left my feet since. The comfort, look and simple styling have made these my new favorite pair of shoes.

Color Request - I have worn these shoes most days (except summer) for at least 5 years. I have the black which is no longer available and wonder if we can get it back? For the shopper who did not like the shoe's support, I felt the same way until I used Spenco arch supports. They're great and do not make the shoe too tight.

Awesome shoe; Awesome Zappos! I absolutely love this shoe. It was comfortable right out of the box. After several times of wear it has conformed to my foot, which has made these shoes by far my most comfortable yet. I am on my feet for at least 8 hours a day and these Clarks keep my feet happy. The quality of this shoe is excellent. I don't have one complaint and I receive so many compliments on the look of this Clark. Many people want to know where I got it. I originally ordered the size that I generally wear in tennis shoes and found that I needed a half size smaller, so that is something to take into consideration. I must say that I am one happy Clarks purchaser and a very satisfied Zappos customer! You can't beat Zappos customer service. They are the best!

Clarks Desert Trek's, The Best - The shoe is wonderful; it fits perfect and looks great with jeans. I will only order from Zappos on the internet. Zappos shipped my shoes overnight without me even requesting it. The early shipment was a great surprise. Thank you Zappos!

Crepe soles--like walking on air! I love the shoes and especially the crepe soles. However I do wish that the shoes were't so heavy. I don't remember them being so heavy, when I was wearing them back in the 40's, and thru the years untill I couldn't find them anymore. I guess the weight is due to the soles. For a person my age and with a bad back I look for comfort (which your shoes have)looks and a cushion sole. Your product is above all of these standards. Now if you could just improve the weight, I would really be a happy camper.

Comfort With Style - I love my new Clarks. They are made of beautiful leather and are so very comfortable. I have barely taken them off since I received them. It was my first purchase from Zappos and I would definitely use them again. Cost was right: five dollars less than shoe store with free UPS shipping. Very pleased!

I love the look and the feel. One problem: Even though I've never had a problem with width size, infact all my shoes are medium, however, this particular pair was quite tight across the middle. I'm hoping they will stretch out a little. Other than that, a perfect shoe.
