A true classic, my regular size, 11 1/2, medium, fits just great. Love the old school look and after two outings they are broken in just fine. Did upgrade to bright orange shoe laces.

This shoe is an essential for any man who doesn't want to have to spend too much time thinking about what to wear and still wants to look better than decent. I'm not outrageously stylish so getting dressed is mostly slim fitting jeans and shirts...canvas jacket or casual blazer (I live in Southern California), so this shoe is perfect for walking around, casual parties, or date night with the wife (we don't really go to places that are super-fancy...decent restaurant and bars, movies, etc.). One of the ultimate go-to shoes in my closet!

Beautifully made. Looks great dressed up or down. Hope to add more colors over time. I generally wear a 12.5- 13 and I got these in a 12 because my experience with Clarks is that they are a little wider than average. For example, my go-to shoe is slip-on Vans which are comfortable in a 13, but in these a 12 is just as comfortable. The width of the toe box and the minimalist sole allows my toes to spread for a natural step. I have extremely high arches, but avoid arched shoes as that weakens your arches and makes you more prone to foot and ankle injuries and plantar faciitis. These Clarks have pretty minimal arches that are imperceptible to me.

These are among my all-time favorite shoes. I've had my first pair (in the brown suede color) for going on 3 years, and they are still going strong. The sole holds up so well, and the stitching and construction is really solid. I used to baby them, but in actuality they do pretty good in the rain (but the sole can get slippery). They look great as a casual shoe and can be dressed up for business casual outfits too. I used to wear them to work everyday and still wear them on the weekends. And compliments galore. I've never owned a pair of shoes where I've received so many compliments from such a wide variety of people. It's rare to find a pair of shoes this good, which is why I'm ordering my second pair. Keep it up, Clarks!

This is my 3rd pair in 4 years. Other two are black suede and brown bees wax. Very comfortable and in my opinion uniquely stylish.

Couldn't be happier. Love the minimalist look of this shoe. My first impression was that the sole was a bit firmer than I usually prefer. My fears quickly faded after only a couple days with them. The contour of the sole is far beyond anything I've ever owned before. Despite feeling firm, they're extremely supportive and comfortable, even after hours on my feet. They're like the shoe equivalent of a Knoll chair.

Great shoe. Simple and well constructed. Slightly larger than expected but super comfortable. Not much arch support but still comfortable for me. Nice looking shoe for dress casual. The natural gum does start to get grimy on the bottom and around the edges. I have a feeling I'll be keeping these in the rotation for years to come.

I absolutely love the style of these shoes. They are casual and look great with jeans, yet could easily be worn with pants and a shirt to go out. They break in fast and are quite comfortable, and seem to be durable so far. They stretch a bit, so if they're a little tight at first don't worry.

Super cool shoes. In the colder months of the year, I wear Clarks zip up boots. I wanted something more summery and comfortable for hot SC days. They look great with a pair of jeans. I have not been bold enough to wear them with shorts yet but we'll see where this summer takes me.

The Desert Trek are a great all around shoe, so far I've put these to the test by hiking through rugged uphill/downhill terrain like Pinnacles, Yosemite & Big Sur & I am very pleased with their performance & comfort. The sole feels grippy & sturdy enough to confidently trek up a steep granite slopes and very comfortable. The overall aesthetic of this shoe is great, it's simplicity portrays an image of a relaxation, intelligence & adventure, like myself. I'd recommend getting a whole size smaller because they stretch quite a bit.

I found these at a store and was impressed with the construction. The shoe is true to size, easy to get on and off, and fits great. I am not sure what to make of the other reviews that say the shoe is too big. I frankly love the extra room in the front (which is not excessive). The sole is also amazing and soft when walking, you cannot even hear any clacking or noise. The only problem is that the laces are a bit flimsy, but this can be solved by getting a small version of your favorite brown ones.

It took one of my friends talking me into giving these a try and I've been happy with them. The beeswax leather is a great, classic color. They're surprisingly comfortable with a quick break-in period. The sole is super soft and comfortable to walk in, though there isn't the greatest arch support. They also seemed to run a bit on the large side. Normally I wear a men's 10 and I ended up with an 8.5.

Really like these shoes but should have known that with the center seam they would feel narrow. After wearing them an hour or two at a time they have formed to my feet. I have been a long time Clarks fan and these shoes have not disappointed. If you have wide feet, just know they run narrow.

Got the dark green canvas that they had for a limited time and I love them! The stitching over the top front of a foot frayed a little because of the canvas but it was easily repaired. Super comfy and I can walk in them for miles. Looking into another pair now!

A good looking shoe. Several friends have commented and asked where to get a pair. They are comfortable, light, streamlined - looks great with crop pants. Only "negative" is that the sizes are off. I tried a 7.5 - my regular size - on in store. They fit, but were just snug enough that I did not feel comfortable buying them. The store did not have size 8 in stock so came to Zappos and they fit fine.

Great looking shoe. The only negative is that you may need an insert to make the shoe more comfortable.

Great Casual Boot/Shoe - As usual Clarks Desert trek Shoe is one of the best designed shoes on the market. The leather is soft and well crafted. The boot has plenty of toe room with the rounded shape and the sole has a nice soft give to the feel on a hard surface.

This is the most comfortable shoe I have ever owned. I plan on getting them for the rest of my life. The leather ones, when they break in, are nice, but the suede is more comfortable all around.
