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!

It maybe more nostalgia than anything, but I love my desert Clark's. They're super comfy, and perfect for a casual setting.

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!!!

I wanted boots that were short enough to fit under any cut of jeans and these are definitely perfect for that. I wish the toe area was a little taller just so that I could use some winter inserts to make them warmer, but I've been surviving with just a pair of thick ski socks. Love the color and style. Will definitely buy them again if they're still around once these die.

I love the look of these boots! I even bought 2 different colors. There's not a lot of arch support but I have to use my own insoles and they fit perfectly.

Bought these for my wife. They look great with jeans. Knowing all too well about Clarks Desert Boots crepe sole offering no arch support I warned her in advance. We got these a size too big so we could put Dr. Scholl's insoles inside to provide some comfort. She absolutely loves them.

Same Clark quality and materials that dessert boots had in the 1980s in a vintage style that is now cool and trendy for my teenage daughter. She loves them. I was glad to see the crepe rubber sole that will wear well rather than a cheaper modern substitute. Look great, feel great, great quality.

Great shoes, perfect fit and very comfortable, moderate arch support because that's how the Clark desert boot is made, beautifully crafted in soft suede, a classic, and great service, as usual from Zappos.

Love these boots! My boyfriend had bought the men's pair in smooth leather about a year ago and wears them practically every day. I was always eyeing them but was afraid they'd look too masculine on me. I first ordered the dark brown suede, which is a beautiful shoe, but I was afraid the suede would get dirty too easily, and since I was looking for an everyday boot, I returned it for the distressed taupe. They're gorgeous, I wear them with skinny jeans or leggings and thick socks, and I love the look. They're the most comfortable boots I've ever worn, too...something about that Clarks crepe sole makes you feel like you're walking on a cloud. I keep them clean with regular leather cleaner and waterproofed them - they seem to be holding up pretty well, although I try not to expose them to too much moisture. One downside is they are definitely called desert boots for a reason - not for extremely cold temperatures (found that out the hard way). I'd also say they run a little large. I usually wear a 9 but the 8.5 is a perfect fit with enough room for wool socks.

Love these boots! Break in very easily. Two issues for me: 1) I fit in between sizes, opted for the smaller size. 2) fits very snug on top of the foot, especially for folks with high arches. The boots did stretch after wearing once or twice and are now extremely comfortable!

Love these shoes. I love them with straight leg cords, a henley, shirt, sweater, and puffer vest. They pull a great casual, outdoor's outfit together. I've been trying for two years to get them in gray and they never have my size! You won't be sorry!

Absolutely love these. I bought the light suede ones a few years ago, today I bought the brown leather ones, they're comfortable and look great with just about anything. My only complaint about the leather ones is that crease on the across the toe box where your foot bends kind of looks like a vagina.

I love these shoes. The beeswax leather is stiff at first and I had my doubts, but with a pair of thick socks and a few days of walking, they had completely softened up and now are some of my most comfortable shoes. Looks great with skinny cut pants and skirts alike.

Great-looking boot. I wear it work at the office every day and I can wear it out on the town too. They aren't very comfortable when standing for long periods of time so I will probably get some inserts. I usually wear an 8.5 and these were very true to size.

These are really cute! At first they seem like they could be uncomfortable. But as you wear them, they soften up and are pretty decent. I found the higher back to be a bit annoying on my achilles tendon area, especially when driving. They are a great color and look great with jeans. They also would be cute with cute long socks and a skirt. I am 41 and have two teenage daughters. Last year when I thought about getting them, they told me they were ugly, so I didn't get them. Once I got them, they were very jealous of the fact that they were MINE! So ha ha to them! I would not suggest them for a long day of standing or walking. They don't have great support for your low back. But for knocking around, they are great and go with most everything. I say get them!

These are a great casual boot. The leather is much thicker than I expected, well made. I am pretty sure that I had a pair just like these back in the 70's. If arch support is not a concern than get a pair. Very comfortable.
