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.

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.

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 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 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.

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!
