Why can't shoe companies make size 10.5? Seriously, what is up with that? The 10 was too small, even with thin socks, the 11 too large, even with thick socks. A 10.5 would have been perfect -- why doesn't this size exist? It makes no sense, especially given the increasing size of American women's feet and the range of widths offered in this model. Come on, Clarks and other companies!

I don't know about the other reviews, but this shoe runs narrow. My usual shoe size for the past umpteen years has been a 7.5 medium in US women's sizing, and a 38 in Euro sizing. I bought two pairs - one red and one black. Tried both on; both fit the same way - tight width-wise. The red, in reality, is not as red as shown in the photo. It is more of a faded color, and the rubber on the toe is more of a dark brown than black. It is a good looking shoe, stable feeling, good support, and is waterproof leather, which is fantastic. Disappointed, but I'll try the next half size up, and also try the 'wide' width.

I can wear these all day, no problems. They look adorable on, they're completely waterproof (tested in puddles of water - I work at a garden centre) and they cured my metatarsal pain after a few days! They're my everyday shoes. Plus, they hardly show any wear and I've been sporting them most days out of a few months. The 9.5 was a good fit on my 9.5-10 feet, but they are on the narrow side (which works for me). Still, give 'em a shot and let them sit - they're a bit stiff to start, and not too cushy, but they just get more comfortable. Highly recommended for all sorts of occasions.

I wear a 9.5M shoe but wear a 10M walking shoe so that I can wear thicker socks. I found the 10M too narrow in this shoe and after reading all the reviews I decided to try the 10W. Perfect! The toe box area in this shoe is narrower in shape, therefore, the 10W is most comfortable. The shoe is wonderful to walk in right out of the box; no breaking in period required. Very happy and will probably buy more in other colors.

I love these shoes but for the first time in my life (I'm 86) a narrow width was too narrow for me and I had to exchange them for a medium. That said, these shoes are terrific -- well made, stylish and, most important, very comfortable (I have a metal rod through the length of a big toe after a bad break so I can't bend that toe; I have to wear shoes with turned up toes so I can rock on that foot). With these shoes, NO pain! Besides, for reasons I can't explain, I've had more compliments on them than on any other shoes, ever, and from men as well as other women. I'm ordering a second pair in that kicky red-orange color.

I wanted to like these. They look great and if I did not have a bunion, I think I would have kept them, that said, they felt tight on both feet. I have had great luck with Clarks so I was a bit shocked.

A comfortable, sturdy shoe for walking or other activity. Because it is waterproof, it tends to be a bit hot on your feet after several hours.

I love these shoes! Worth every cent. Looking for walking shoes for upcoming trip and these will do nicely. Love they are waterproof - great for hiking to sidewalks. I have custom orthotics and don't need to use them due to excellent arch and heel support. Great support in the achilles area. They are more form fitting than others I have tried. At first I thought they might be too tight but they have eased up in less than a day of walking. I also tend to be an over pronator and these have good stability. I ordered the red color which is more of a muted or burnt red but nice contrast with the black accent around toe and heel. I tried the Go Lite Lava Lite and Keen Toyah. The Go Lite did not have enough support and the tread was squishy feel when walking. The Keen was better support than Go Lite but I would need to use orthotics. Gusseted shoe tongue is nice it won't move around which adds to comfort.

Brands I'd also recommend: Keen or Merrel

I almost never write a review for anything, but these shoes are so amazing I had to take the time to write one. They are exceptionally comfortable, great arch support and very light weight. I wear a size 9 shoe so I frequently shy away from shoes like this because they make my feet look huge. These no only don't look big I think they make my feet look smaller than usual. I ordered them thinking I could wear them to run errands and just knock around in, but I now plan to travel in them and also hike. They are simply the most comfortable shoes I have put on my feet in a long time! I think they run exactly true to size. I have a narrower foot that doesn't require a narrow shoe size but many brands just don't fit my feet. This shoe has plenty of room in the toe without being wide through the arch and the heel fits perfectly without being too snug. I think if you have a super wide foot this may not be the shoe for you.

After reading the other reviews, I ordered my regular size, but in a wider width. It worked, they are very comfortable. The narrow fit has an up side, in that they look sleeker than other walking shoes. I would have liked a little more arch support, but will probably add an orthotic. Even in the wider width, these will only take medium weight socks. Not a hiking shoe, but a good city walking shoe. The "red" color is not a true red, more of a bright rust color. And the slight two-tone look in the photo became more pronounced after just one day of wearing. The leather of the top and sides are different textures, so the top stayed rough and dark, while the nap on the sides smoothed down and looks lighter. Not a bad look, just not what I expected. But I'll keep them.

I ordered these shoes for a fall trip to Europe. I expect to do a lot of biking, walking and possibly some of it in the rain. These shoes seemed to fit the bill since they're comfortable for those activities AND they're waterproof in case of an all day rain. I ordered the red ones because they were available in my size. Normally I would have gone for the tan ones but I decided to take a chance on the red. I absolutely LOVE these shoes!! The red is not a bright "in-your-face" red but rather a darker, more subdued red and I am now grateful that they were the ones available in my size since I would never otherwise have chosen that color. I've been wearing them around for days now and they are amazingly comfortable. I bought a half size larger than my normal size since I want to make sure I can wear warm socks with them. I couldn't have gotten better shoes. These are exactly what I needed and I look forward to this trip with them as well as future trips as well. They look nice enough to work in many places and they don't have that American look of the white running shoe that makes American stand out so painfully when traveling in other countries. I highly recommend these shoes!

Bought size 8 (about my size normally and it's still a bit roomy), Medium width and my narrow feet don't slide around in it while also not being tight. Arch support is far better than most shoes, but not for really long days without wearing my arch support sleeve. Good traction, but yet to test on snowy/icy conditions. Haven't slipped in wet conditions, yet. Smooth, soft feel to the fabric which looks fetching but tough design of hiking boots. Good laces that don't come undone easily. I would like another pair, and hope these last for years.

I work on my feet all day and I'd yet to find a pair of shoes that held up (granted I don't have the resources to try all kinds but I compared many cheaper brands & some on zappos with their free returns). This one holds up darn good, excepting 8+ hour shifts, you do feel pain by then. I love how all the smudges & scuffs can be just wiped away with a rag (damp for harder ones). The moisture-wicking seems to work, but I've yet to try out the waterproof ability (hoping it succeeds). People of both sexes do compliment em (even though this doesn't matter on convincing one to buy a shoe) and the consensus matches mine of looking like a pair of slick(slang) hiking boots.

Wow! This shoe is terrific. I'm just back from being a "snow bird" on the coast of Alabama. This shoe was great for biking, walking on the beach, and shopping. The shoe is water proof so wet sand and rain were not a problem. May feet were happy and dry. I went through chemo last year which left some neuropathy (numbness) in my feet. The bumps on the inner sole are like little massages on my soles. I like that! I am usually between a 7 1/2 and an 8. I ordered both sizes and kept the 7 1/2. Great fit. The gray color is somewhat gray/brown and blends well with both black and brown clothing. The shoe also makes my feet look smaller. I am totally satisfied with the comfort and look of the Clark's wave trek. Clarks: Keep making this shoe.

These are great shoes. I have them in both black and blue. The black look good enough to keep you looking smart while traveling, rather than having to wear white mesh, multi-color stripe running shoes.

I love the comfort and support of this shoe. I have very high arches and instep and it doesn't require my orthotics, but can accommodate them if the liner is removed. I bought a second pair, because I know when the style becomes obsolete, I'll still want a pair.

I like these shoes. They are very comfortable and wearable right out of the box...very easy on my plantar fasciitis. I did buy them a size bigger and at this point it seems that was not necessary, but even with fairly thick socks I didn't need a full size bigger.

In my search for good walking shoes that would work with my custom orthotics -- yet not look like athletic shoes or orthopedic shoes, I found these. Love them because of the wave-walk motion, the bit of height that this wave technology offers and the fact that they pair well with black slacks/pants -- my go-to travel outfit. They're also waterproof, so great for rainy day sightseeing. The tiny bit of neon accent on the back of the heel is a nice touch. Came with 2 pair of laces; one plain black, one black/neon green. I'd get a second pair in red in my size 11, but they're out of stock right now. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I usually wear an 11B, but had to size up to 12B. I've finally found a comfortable shoes. I like that they are waterproof because some days I don't want to wear boots when there is a small amount of snow on the ground.

I love these shoes!!! Very comfortable and they look great with jeans. Not as sporty as athletic shoes and not as outdoorsy as hiking shoes. They feel great for walking all day long. They are true to size and work well with lightweight socks.

I love these waterproof walking shoes! They fit true to size and width. I wear between a 7.5 and an 8. I bought the 8M and it feels just fine for my flat, sometimes-expansive feet. Have worn them in the city and on dirt walking paths to great satisfaction. They are more stable than sneakers.

These are probably the most comfortable shoes I have bought in many years. I got them for everyday walking around town, as well as short hikes. They function perfectly in both capacities. They are roomy enough to allow plenty of space in the toe area, and are nice-looking as well.

FABULOUS! After reading all the fantastic reviews, I thought "all of these ladies cannot be wrong"! Well, these reviews were written by some VERY SMART LADIES who knew what they were talking about. So glad I purchased these adorable leather sneakers. Their comfort is second to none. No break-in time, just put them on and you can walk all day in total comfort. LIFE IS GOOD! Thank you to Clarks for keeping it real for real people, and to Zappos for carrying such a large supply of great shoes.
