I really wish Clarks made this shoe in a wide width. I love the "chukka" look and decided to try these (size 7, med. width) even though I normally wear a WW or EE width. I hoped they'd have enough give to accommodate my bunions. Wrong! I couldn't even get my foot inside the shoe, so they're going back. I even ordered a men's size 6 to compare, thinking that it would be wider; it was but was too long and just not a good fit for my wide foot, so they'll be going back too. So disappointing- this is really a good-looking boot, and I wish the folks at Clarks would realize how much of the market they're missing by catering only to people with narrow feet.

I absolutely love the look of these boots. That said, they take getting used to wearing. I normally wear a 6.5 but had to go down a half size because they are very long. Also, the shoe is very tight at the instep; this is a problem I've never had before, which I resolved with a shoe stretcher. The fact that they are unlined suede means they'll stretch eventually on their own, but the narrow instep meant I was having trouble getting my foot into them. As they have no arch support whatsoever I was planning on using an insert but cannot because of the narrowness of the instep. Oh well, I'll just save them for days when I'm not going to be pounding the pavement.

I love these boots. They are very comfortable straight out of the box. Look great with ankle jeans. They are my go to shoe for errands. I will probably buy them in black as well.

Classic desert boot. Looked many places to find this color. Zappos had a pair in the correct size at a competitive price. Boots arrive quickly and product was just as advertised.

I am thrilled! Just what I was looking for, the real desert boot. I never had a pair back then but from what I remember of them on others when I was wearing Jack Purcells was that they would be the perfect neutral shoe boot for the spring and fall season. Maybe even summer, I don't know yet. I have a very easy foot to fit, 71/2 and in fact the Clarks 7 1/2 fit me just fine. At first I was not sure if they were going to be as comfortable as they looked, but sure enough, with a week's worth of wearing here and there, they have molded to my foot and the pure rubber sole is quite forgiving. I particularly dig this distressed taupe because they go with everything I own. So easy on and off without being a slip on; a simple tie.

I have this shoe in two colors. While they wouldn't be great for hiking (no arch support), they are a great shoe for every day use.

I had been shopping around for a desert boot and bought these on the recommendation of a friend (Originally I had been worried due to the heel appearing clunky in photos)and I absolutely love them. They are perfect for everyday in addition to business casual. They were exactly the look I wanted while also being comfortable. The only word of caution is to waterproof/seal them immediately to keep the suede looking great.

I love these Clarks classics! I probably should have gone with the 6 1/2 instead of 7 - but as long as I'm wearing them with thick socks it's fine!

Love these booties with skinny jeans. They were comfortable right out of the box and I have worn them every day, all day. The distressed taupe is a nice neutral color. Highly recommend them! They absolutely fit true to size.

Your return service is excellent! Ordered size 7 and when they arrived too big, called and exchanged and like magic the new shoes were at my door the next day! Great for just cruising around in and look great with shorts and skirts! Thanks you guys rock.

The Beeswax Leather desert boots were my introduction to Clarks. I wore them often and for well over a year before they started to wear out. They've got a classic and versatile look. Reasonably comfortable, but benefit from an additional insole. I recommend the Desert Mali boot for a taller, more supportive version of this look.

I bought the distressed taupe. It's a great neutral color - goes with just about everything. They're a little lighter in person than depicted on the screen, though. I was a bit unsure what size to buy as many different reviews from different sites ranged from "order up, these run small and narrow" to "order down, these are so long and roomy." Agh. I'm usually a 7.5 - 8, depending on the style and how narrow or wide a shoe runs. Once in a great while I'm a 7 if the shoe is truly wide. So I ordered a 7.5 and they are perfect. They don't feel narrow to me or too tight. The instep is a little stiff when I'm trying to put them on, but they're great once on and I think they'll stretch with wear. I would simply suggest trying these on in your local store, if possible, to establish your size. If you can't get to a store, try on your normal bigger size plus one half a size smaller. And remember, leather almost always stretches.

Brands I'd also recommend: birkenstock, merrell, keen, sperry

I love Clarks shoes! These are really cute! They do run a little big. I wish they were smaller at the top as there is a gap between my ankle and the shoe. There is no support. My feet generally get pretty cold in these, so I wear two pairs of socks. I feel like they go with a lot of outfits and look good with both skinny jeans and regular jeans.

I freaking love these shoes. I wanted to replace my Wallabees, but wanted to try something new and these are a winner! They took about a day to break in, but they're seriously the most comfortable thing ever. I walk a lot in them - they're perfect. I love how they look, feel, etc. So great.

I love these shoes, the look is exactly what I wanted. However I have been wearing them for several months now with drug store arch supports, and they are not comfortable. I still love their look but I do not look forward to putting them on!

I have been searching for a casual boot to wear with jeans and pants that is also comfortable and this is it! Great look, hip Jcrew style! I am always a size 7... always but in this shoe I had to go down 1/2 a size! Shoe is a little stiff at first and takes a bit to break down.

My girlfriend loves these shoes! The only thing she doesn't love is that the crepe rubber soles get dirty rather quickly. This isn't a downfall of the shoe, but rather just a style preference.

This shoe is worth every cent! They are extremely comfortable, and fit very well to your feet. It goes with anything! It especially looks good if you are wearing dark jeans, or khakis. I wear them to school, and work and they still look very nice with each one! I recommend getting these.

These boots are really cool. I got many compliments for them. The only thing is that it is super painful to wear them before you break them in and they get scratched up really easily. Overall, they seem to be a quality product and I'm glad I bought them!

I have been eyeing these shoes for so long. Once they arrived, I was very disappointed. I love the style, although from my vantage point in the mirror, I wasn't sold. Despite that, I hung onto them for a while, hoping to fall in love. The main problem was that they were not very comfortable. For me, they were lacking in arch support and the back of the shoe really dug into my achilles. I couldn't get past that for the price, despite how much I loved the shoe. Sadly, they went back.

Love these! So simple and comfy. The first time I wore them, they rubbed my heel a little - but I just wore them with super thick socks for a few days and now they're perfectly broken in. They're a fairly masculine shoe, so they look great with dresses and cute socks.

These boots are very cute with jeans, but they aren't very comfortable. They have no arch support whatsoever. They are difficult to get on. I had to go up a size and while the fit through the heel is okay, the fit through the toes is very tight. I'm not sure if I'll keep them. I can't wear them for long periods or not for a lot of walking. Cute shoe - poor design!

Love this shoe! Great with skinny jeans and a lot more. Found it to be true to size but someone with a wide foot may not find it comfortable. Liked the distressed taupe so much I ordered the distressed gray but found it to be sort of a weird gray and not as 'distressed' as I was expecting.

A great, sturdy pair of shoes! Warning: They are very very stiff and require a lot of breaking in. Mine are not yet quite "comfy" although they are getting there. But I am pretty sure they are going to last a while!

These are well-made, comfortable shoes that look great. They don't have a lot of arch support, but when I know I'm going to be on my feet for a long time, these are still one of my go-to shoes.
