Slippery, loose yet chafed, but very pretty - These look nicer on than they do in the photos. I was sorry to find that the edges of the leather did seem to require a break-in period; they were a combination of loose in places and chafing in others. The most unexpected feature was that the bottoms of the soles are very hard and slick and I felt very unsteady walking across a hardwood floor, just like those dye-to-match sating prom or bridesmaid shoes, where you have to scratch the bottoms to get some traction. Odd. Not nearly as cushiony as Clarks Springers were, and I hope they will bring those back, as one could actually run in them yet they looked nice and lasted well. This one was okay for casual wear, but not an option for me, because I need a shock-absorbing sandal I can walk across town in. Maybe these would work for someone less heavy than I, or with better feet.

No Arch Support - I really like the look of these shoes, and they were mostly comfortable. However, they had no arch support, and my feet were pretty sore after wearing them for a bit. They also rubbed the front of my foot enough to be sore and if I had worn them longer would have rubbed them raw.

Great shoe. Very comfortable and adjusts easily to accommodate my very narrow foot and high instep. Thanks to Zappos for the great overnight service.

I have worn Clark shoes for years but in the last couple of years I had to stop wearing shoes because of a medical condition on the bottoms of my feet. Now it has cleared up so I went looking for a Clarks flat heel and I found this Sarasota style which I thoroughly enjoy and wears well and fits great.

Very comfortable - wore for hours right out of the box. Size is perfect and the adjustable straps help with the width adjustment. They even looked perfect after walking on the beach in the sand and water.

These looked great, versatile, and I love the 3 ways to adjust the fit. I thought I'd be keeping them but after wearing 15 minutes the inside of the velcro started making a sore spot on my toes.

Awesome - I need an 8WW - and not only does Zappos have them - when I get them - they feel like an 8WW - they fit, they feel great, and I have had about 3 other pair of Clark sandals. Plenty of room in 8WW and the velcro just makes them so adjustable for high insteps, high arches, narrower heels, etc...just great. Thinking of buying a second pair for when I wear these down!

I get compliments on these shoes every time I wear them! They were comfortable the first time I wore them all day! I wear between a size 6 and 7 depending on the shoe and in Clarks sandals (of which I have several) I take a 6. I do not have foot problems or need extra arch support so I cannot comment on that aspect of these shoes.

I was looking for a shoe that would compensate for a painful hammertoe and a foot that sometimes swells. I am also recovering from a complete hip revision and thought this style would allow me to enter easily. The Velcro straps are a bit of a challenge as I am not able to bend past 90 degrees, but with a little help, I am on my way. I own 2 of the Sarasota, the nubuck and the dark brown lizard pattern, dressy enough to go throughout the day.

The Clarks Sarasota walking shoes are great. I wore them during most of the July fourth weekend celebrations. They are comfortable, while still offering good arch support along with classy looks. I would get another pair in different color if I could spare the expense.

I bought these for my 71 year old mom and she loves them. They are stylish, super comfortable and the Velcro makes them easy for her to put and take off. She is so cute. She brags about them all the time. Even better? I had them shipped to me and did not have to drag her all over Raleigh trying on shoes. They are worth every penny. Thanks Zappos!

This is the most comfortable sandal and true to size. I have a small but wide foot due to a bunion and it is so difficult to find something that fits correctly. But this is a very well made shoe and I am grateful to Zappos for their fast delivery.

Love this shoe. I have a narrow foot and high arch so finding a comfortable, well fitting walking shoe that is attractive is almost impossible. Thanks to Clarks it can and has been done. Also thanks to Zappos for their excellent service while I ordered and returned many sandals until this one. :)

This turned out to be a great shoe! The picture makes it look a tad 'orthopedic' but there is a cut-out area that doesn't show that makes it look less so. If you are looking for an extremely supportive sandal like a Dansko, this won't be your sandal. But if you want a sandal that's very comfortable, easy to walk in, goes with pants and skirts, this might work. I love the fact that you can adjust this shoe in three different places. I am truly a 4 1/2 W w/bunion who usually orders a 5. The 5 was a perfect fit, which tells me that for others this shoe might run a tad small. Overall a great shoe!

I ordered this shoe in a 7EE. Because it has three adjustable straps, I'm able to customize it to fit around my bunion and accommodate my high instep, while securing the back strap firmly. The insole is well-cusioned & gives plenty of arch support. They are light weight and so comfortable. With a dressy casual look, I first wore them to an outdoor wedding with slacks, but they look fine with jeans, too.

Great shoe. Unfortunately I have to return it because it isn't narrow enough. I have very flat feet and even with the straps tightened to the max my feet slide around. Otherwise they would have been great.

Zappos as always is the best place to order on line from. These shoes were comfortable right out of the box. The velco straps allow are great to ajust to the perfect size your need. After wearing they were so comfortable that I ordered another color.

Very comfortable shoe that I could wear as soon as I received them. As I live in a large metropolitan area, walking around the city in these sandals is fabulous. Prefer the patent leather color because it looks a little dressier.

I needed a flat shoe that was a little dressy to accommodate my bunion and dislocated toe and after much store shopping I came across the Zappos web site. Now I could order shoes try them on at home where I was comfortable and if they weren't right return them and pay no shipping either way. I was thrilled to find these shoes that were more perfect than I ever expected. Not only did the patent leather give a dressy look but they were the most comfortable shoes I have had in a very long time. Walked a lot in them and then to a wedding. Clarks shoes are the best!

I've had so much trouble finding shoes in the past that came in my size and width until I found Zappos! This is my second pair of this particular sandal. It was so absolutely comfortable that I had to make sure I got another pair in a different color.

I bought this shoe after being disappointed with the Clarks "Lucena". This style is not quite as pretty as the Lucena, but for me, the fit is better. I have a wide foot and a very high instep. A strap across the instep is usually too short, but the Sarasota has room to spare. Lucena had to be returned for not having a long enough strap. I also like the pewter color of this shoe. It is very rich looking and goes with everything.
