I love these boots. They are super comfortable and they go so well with anything! They are a bit tight at first but they break in very quickly after a couple of wears. The one thing to be aware of are water stains! Either do not wear them out in the rain or get some suede protector spray (I learned this the hard way).

Beautiful shoe, reminds me of the brown ones I wore when I was a kid. Soft leather. Like others I found it to be tight at first, but loosened up slightly upon wearing. I'm a size 8 and it fit little tight on the sides but on target for length. I think sizing up would've made the shoe too big for me, but if you are between sizes you may want to try that. No arch support, but the are comfortable anyway.

Awesome shoes. They are comfy and have a cool, masculine look. I got them in the dark brown leather and they turned kind of yellow-ish within the first few days of wearing them, so that's something to keep in mind if the dark color is important to you.

These are my new favorite shoe. I have 2 other pair in other colors and both of those I wore in a 6. However, this shoe I had to send the 6 back and get a 6 1/2 with fits perfectly. I have wide feet because of bunions and these shoes are extremely comfortable.They are a bit distressed looking, which I like, and the color is very neutral and goes with everything, even grey.

I love this boot but there is not enough depth in the toe box to accommodate my foot and a typical orthotic - a great shame - desert boots often have no arch support so it would be nice to be able to add my own and still be able to get into the boot!

I have been pining for desert boots for awhile, but did not make the plunge until just recently. I ordered a Women's 6½M in the dark Beeswax Leather. When I first tried them on and walked about my apartment with them, they felt a little tight, so I ordered an exchange for the Women's 7M. When I tried those on and walked around, they were too big - so I tried on the 6½ and realized that they did not feel too bad after all. Especially since the leather will loosen up after a few wears! Zappos let me keep the 6½M and return the 7M no problem. The boots look great (I think I will spray some leather protector on them, though!), and I am always impressed with Zappos' awesome customer service. I will say though that the shoes require a few days of breaking in. I have a few blisters on my heels and the back of my calf but nothing too painful not to make it worth it!

Style A+++ The crepe soles are great shock absorbers. Worn them all day for preparation for a European trip. My foot started cramping. I think I have an average arch, now at age 55 (was high). I am going to try them with a good arch support insole insert. Hoping this will help. Also shoe laces are thin. I think it's for style not being cheap. Will bring extra for trip.

The desert boots are great. Casual yet classy. The feel and the fit is amazing. I plan on getting them in at least two more colours. The sizes do fit smaller than usual but all I did was request an exchange and got the correct size. I normally wear 8.5 but I had to get a 9.5.

I was really excited to order a pair of these boots to add to my recent Clarks obsession. I am usually a 5.5 in their flats/sandals and was worried when Zappos only had a size 6 in stock. I ordered anyway because I couldn't resist and was pleasantly surprised with the size 6, which fit perfectly (probably due to the addition of socks!). I would not change back to a size 5.5 even if I could. As for the color, I will say the pictures on Zappos make the 'taupe distressed' color look a bit darker/slightly more green-brown than they are in person. A good description of the color is (oddly) the same as a Weimaraner dog! Despite the slight difference in color, I am very pleased and can't wait to wear them this Fall/Winter. Thanks Zappos.

AWESOME spring shoe. I was tired of wearing tall boots to work, but it isn't quite sandal/open toe weather. These are perfect and so cute. I've worn them mainly with ankle skinny jeans and get tons of compliments. Super comfortable too! I normally am between an 8/8.5 I originally ordered the 8 and had to exchange for the 8.5 so if you're in between sizes go with the larger. They are on the narrow side, but going with the larger size solved that issue.

I absolutely love these boots. I wear them with skinny jeans. I usually wear a 7 to 7.5 but after reading reviews, I got a size 8. The fit is great.

These are fantastic! Other reviewers are right - they do feel a bit stiff right out of the box, but the more you wear them, the softer they get. I have the beeswax, and they're getting that awesome weathered look as time goes on - minor scuffs and scratches just make these boots look more awesome. I usually rest somewhere between a size ten and eleven, so I'm never quite sure which size to order, but I followed the advice of other reviewers who said that they run large. Ordered the ten and I'm glad that I did - they fit perfectly.

Fit is true to size, they were comfortable the first day I wore them. They look great with skinny pants. They are not your rugged outdoor keep me warm boots, but are a great indoor winter shoe.

I love these. So comfortable and stylish. I am going to order another pair in beeswax color. They are great! Plus, as always, Zappos is the best online retailer. You won't find quicker or better service anywhere else.

Exactly how I remembered them from when I was a teen! Great color. I wear an 8, and they fit true to size. Really cute with jeans. You could wear funky socks and a skirt if you wanted. Easily dressed up or down. Clark's, well made.

I adore these boots. I bought them in dark brown last year and am considering getting them in another color. I teach and stand on my feet all day. These are comfy enough in medium width (even with my flat, wide feet!) and they withstand the pressures of a full work day. I can still walk home in them at the end of it. This year they are especially stylish and I find that they pair well with jeans and skirts/sweater dresses.

Be sure to order at least a half size down! I ordered a 6.5 and usually wear a 7 or 7.5. These shoes stretch out, but I think that is why they are so comfortable. Took about two or three tries to wear them in and there were blisters, but that is fairly standard for my feet.

These were a little tight right out of the box, (I have narrow-ish feet, but a bunion on my right foot) but after wearing them around the house for about an hour, they stretched out just enough to put in my custom orthotic. I haven't had any trouble with rubbing on my ankles; I guess I'm wearing the right socks or no socks. I mostly just wear full-footies with them. I love the casual look of these for everyday.

Have only worn twice now & so love the shoe! First time heel rubbed a bit but not second time. Easily broke in! Highly recommend you spray suede with all weather protector; in rain water beads up dies not soak through. Love the chocolate color! I believe I will get many years of use from these shoes! Thanks Clarks! And Zappos!

Good, solid shoes! They need a little breaking in and some insoles don't hurt but they're a well constructed, sturdy boot.

These are the best boots ever! They are soft, stylish, and comfortable. Yes, they need breaking in for two days because they are initially stiff at the ends near the ankle bone, but then they are soft as silk after that. Do not return them immediately just because they need to conform to your ankle. You will be missing the best, most comfortable boots that will last for years. Get past the break in period (wear socks) and you will be happy and stylish.

These fit perfectly. I'm usually a 7 in heels and a 7.5 in boots and the 7.5 is perfect. Takes little to no breaking-in time, although I'm wearing taller socks because they are rubbing a little on the ankle. Nothing major and should stop soon. Now I want all the colors!

I love the style. I thought I would need my usual boot size 7. My regular shoe size is 6.5. I will keep the 6.5 because the 7 is too long and the difference in width is not significant. Also, I was told by the guy in the Clarks store that they become wider after only a few times wearing them. To be clear: even now they are not too tight, I just like a very comfy width.

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.
