I like these a lot. They are well made and will clearly break in beautifully and last a long time. The leather is stiff and they felt really tight and uncomfortable at first. One day down and they are already comfy, I am sure they will be great in a month. Th only down side is that their is not much arch support and putting an insole would be hard because the toe box is very flat. Worth noting that the strap across the top has a little elastic on the end for stretch. I like that I can sit down and my socks don't show, they look like boots really.

I have heard that Clarks are really comfy and that you could wear these shoes all day and your feet won't hurt at the end of it. Really? Cause that was not the case for my feet! If you have high arches these shoes are not a good choice! I wish I never bought them. Not comfy one bit.

These boots are wonderful! I wear 10.5 and purchased an 11. They are very true to size and very comfortable. It only took a couple of days to break them in. These are great boots and I am very happy with them. Shipping was extremely fast!

I loved this boot the minute I put it on and it looks great with jeans .The color is terrific and though the leather needs a little "walking time" to get supple, I know I'm going to wear these shoes very often .The quality they are made of is excellent. A wonderful addition to my shoe collection. These were shipped in two days-freaky fast. Thanks Zappos!!!!!!

These boots are perfect for those with toe problems. I have a problematic slight bony protrusion on the outside of my right toe, and that usually requires wearing some moleskin with shoes or boots. However, these boots with the buckle (Breeze) keep my heel firmly in the back of the shoe, so I don't even need any moleskin treatment. They are medium width. I also thought the leather (beeswax) would be too tough and inflexible, but I was wrong here; the leather is sturdy but bends easily and conforms to the foot. I have Clarks desert boots in both the regular (tie) and the buckle models, and the buckle models are just a bit more comfortable, if that's possible. I like them both.

I really like the way the shoes look. They are very loose in the heel. After putting the no slip heel pads in them they fit much better and are very comfortable.

Love the shoe! Looks great with jeans and chords. Fit is spot on for my usual size and after a couple wears they are very comfortable. The only negatives for me are that the leather scratches very easily and discolored a bit too when I tried to treat it (even with following Clarks instructions). It didn't ruin the shoe though, so I'm still happy overall.

They look cool and true to size, however there is not much support and you need insole padding. I walk a lot and soles of my feet hurt without an insert.

These boots are amazing! I have a wide foot and the first few times I wore these they were very tight. The leather is very sturdy and rubs only my right leg. I have blisters from where they rubbed. Just wear thick socks until the leather softens! The crepe sole is very comfy much like walking on clouds. However, if you have a job wear you stand all day they do lack arch support and with how tight they were at first an insole wasn't an option. Overall I really love the versatility this boot offers. I've worn them with khakis, denim and even a dress! They fit very true to size. If you have Wide foot and wear a half size, definitely go up to allow room for cozy socks!

"k."

from Midwest/West Coast USA (losing boots in transit back & forth)

I had these shoes before but they were .."misplaced" ... so I bought another pair. I'm breaking them in today. It's true they feel stiff at first but this nubuck leather breaks in easy and quickly (I think the "beeswax" is the "stiffness"). These seem to be exactly the same as my last pair, so I know they're ultra-comfy once broken in - PAIRED with cushy insoles (I ordered some, available through Zappos, at the same time I ordered these shoes. I prefer the gel type). Not all Clarks are as comfortable as they're reputed to be, but this style IS and they ARE very well made. In between 'now' and 'my last pair of these', I bought so many shoes/boots, never being entirely satisfied. I was very happy when a Zappos ad threw these in my face! I couldn't find the style anywhere after ...um, "losing" my first pair. If you like the style I suggest wearing them around the house/office for a day or two with heavier socks before making a decision as to the comfort;you wont return them anyway. The ankles break in quickly (the stiffest part initially), the rest of shoe conforms even faster. My first pair were so comfortable I put them through all kinds of conditions/USA weather/circumstances that maybe they RAN away! All kidding aside, they're well made and just get more comfortable. WARNING: if you have high arches, there is no arch support in this boot and the strap may be constricting at first; I loosen the strap by a notch and, again, use gel insoles. Eventually they loosen up, fortunately the strap and buckle is very adjustable. Needless to say, I love these.

I searched high and low for a stylish flat boot, and this was the winner! Very comfortable (I got the 9, I can wear 8.5, but this left a bit of room for socks). A bit of blistering on my little toe and heel after walking a mile in them the second day I had them, but nothing since. high quality, groovy, and lots of compliments!

These shoes are attractive, very true to size, and my orthodics fit in them perfectly. They are very comfortable to walk around in and they are pretty cool looking.

Love the way these look! I ordered the distressed suede in taupe in 8 (one size up since they don't have wides available). The break-in period was pretty uncomfortable. The back of the heel is really stiff at first (like the Wallabees) and rubbed my heel the first week or so. The toe box is narrow for me since I have wide feet but they stretched to form my feet better. There's no arch support and very little cushioning in the foot bed. Are they the most comfortable shoe in the world? No. But they definitely get better with time and I'm happy with them.
