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.

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.

I love the look of these boots. A little stiff at first, especially across the toes, but once broken in, I can wear them all day.

Love, love this chukka boot! Very comfortable and broken in in about one wear. It was true to size, but almost felt too big at first...when I ordered down, I realized I had the right size the first time. For smaller or more narrow feet, you might choose a half size smaller.

These boots are my absolute favorite fall/winter casual shoe! They are comfortable and stylish at the same time, which as we all know, are two things that don't necessarily go together. I wear them with skinny jeans and a ribbed turtleneck and I'm good to go. Just thought I'd mention that if you have wide feet,they probably wouldn't be the shoe for you because they fit my slightly narrow feet just right.

Ordered these yesterday afternoon and got them this morning...awesome service Zappos! Anyway, I read the reviews and because I can be between a 7 & 7.5, I ordered both sizes. By the way, my foot is medium width. The 7 fits perfectly. It is not small, it is not narrow, and is extremely comfortable. The sole is very soft and cushy/comfy. Love them already and haven't even worn them out of the house yet. I can tell these will be my go to casual shoes!

These are very comfortable light weight boots. I wear a 6.5 and after a week the stretched out a bit and I have to wear heavy socks with them.

Just what I was looking for: a working boot with comfort and style. I'd recommend a waterproofing treatment for suede, to make it that much more all-purpose. I ordered a size up, based on the reviews I'd read, but it wasn't necessary, maybe because I have narrow feet. This is the fastest delivery I've ever received, so thank you, Zappos!

These shoes will take some time to break in if you have a high arch. They look great with boot cut as well as skinny jeans. The smooth leather they offer is high quality and the classic old school style is perfect. I wear a 7 but got a 6 1/2 due to limited sizes and they fit well.

As my brother said of the Clarks Desert Boot, "these are the shoes you never knew you always wanted." They are perfect. The brown is a great chocolate. They are true to size, with room for my orthotics. No real arch support, but since I put my orthotics in, that doesn't matter to me. Very comfortable right out of the box.

Brands I'd also recommend: Dr. Martens

Great everyday shoe! It takes a little time to wear them in. I got a couple of blisters on the backs of my ankles the first couple of times wearing. But now they are great! Fits true to size. Maybe a little on the larger side.

Great looking shoe! I found these run large. With shoes I'm between a 6.5 and a 7. I ordered the 6.5 and had to go down to a 5.5. I would recommend ordering a few sizes to find the right fit. There isn't much of a cushion on the insole but the suede is very flexible. They are easy to walk and stand in but I would recommend some insoles for extended periods of standing.

Comfortable and classic. I'll wear these on non-rainy days. Now, I want the brown ones! I wear arch supports in all my shoes and these won't be an exception.

These boots are classic. The appearance actually improves with wear. They run a bit large but I am able to get away with it because these are so comfortable. They can be matched with most any kind of outfit. They will never go out of style.

I LOVE these boots so much. As soon as I first slipped them on I knew I wanted them in every single color. The prices on Zappos is also unbeatable along with the fast shipping. Definitively my new favorite shoes. They are also worth every dollar. They are crazy comfortable, the rubber sole offers abundant flexibility and added cushion. They do run big, and luckily I knew that beforehand because I am usually a 7.5 but I ordered a 7 and they fit perfectly(almost like a 7.5). Overall, great purchase and amazing shoes.

Love the look - I bought the tan for me and the black for my daughter. The black is a very nice suede feel, the tan a little less soft to the touch, but just as comfortable.

I love these as much as I loved loved the pair I had back in the late '60s! I found them to be true to size when wearing socks and require no break-in. They do not have much arch support, but they have once again proven to be comfortable for all-day wear and walking around from the first day that I wore them. Super-cute with skinny jeans, and a welcome alternative to boots with a heel, yet with a similar boot-like vibe. Aside from the style, what I love most is the comfort, and the fact that I can wear thick socks with them and there are absolutely no pressure points. I purchased these in the taupe color and find that they go with just about everything! They have been my every day go-to shoes since the day they arrived. I would absolutely purchase them again!

So cute -- really! I took the advice of other reviewers and ordered down (since my last pregnancy, I've been leaning toward an 8.5 as opposed to the 8 I used to wear). They would fit fine, but they have to go back. They cut into my instep funny. Sad!

Beautiful design. Classy and a nice mix between tough and feminine. The front is a little tight at first wear and it squished my toes together but it loosened up. These are comfortable for regular everyday wear but I wouldn't recommend for an on-your-feet all day job. I originally got these for those long shifts in the ER but my feet were aching at the end of the day, because of no arch support.

I love this boot! This is my second pair of Desert Boots, I got a brown pair a couple of years ago. Just put them on and go - don't need to be broken in. I normally wear a size 10 but I got this in an 11 so I can wear thicker socks with them and still be comfortable.

I adore these boots. When I ordered them I wasnt sure if I would like them, mostly because of the wide sole, but the more I wear them the more I love them. The rubber sole makes them super comfortable and they are extremely versatile and exactly what I was looking for. They are a little narrower inside than I expected, so if you want to wear them with thick socks I might order a half size up! Overall, awesome boots!!!
