Great book. Exactly what I was looking for to wear with jeans. Extra bonus was it was Clarks! I have a very high instep and had no problem with this. Very comfortable and good looking.

Boot met all requirements for a motorcycle boot except for the toe--it's not sturdy enough for shifting. A bit stiff at the ankle as well. Granted, it's not advertised as a motorcycle boot, so can't mark down.

Most comfortable boot I've ever worn! The only gripe I have is really minor, the top of the boot isn't very flexible so it's a little stiff when you walk. Hopefully it will wear a bit!

I bought these because I was looking for comfortable boots that I could just wear around casually with jeans and that had a little edge and style without too much of a clunky biker look. They completely fit the bill. The color is perfect because it goes well with black or brown and has a nice almost worn look to it but not so worn looking that it looks messy. They are perfectly comfortable and required about 10 minutes of breaking in and then they were great. My sister saw me wearing them and went nuts over them. They were just what she was looking for as well, so I bought her a pair for Christmas. She put them right on and wore them all Christmas day while she chased 2 toddlers around for 6+ hours and experienced absolutely no discomfort. Significantly important is that I bought them first at a Clarks store, then saw them on Zappos for cheaper, so I returned the Clarks pair and ordered from Zappos! Thank you Zappos for always being on point with price and service!

Love, love these boots. Comfortable but sturdy -- wore them all day out of the box. They are versatile and I wear them with jeans and can wear them with tights and a casual dress or skirt. I think they hit at a nice part of the leg, so as not to cut them off. Also, the opening is wide enough so they are not tight to the leg, so I think visually they flatter the leg. Just what I was looking for...a functional tough girl boot.

Clarks has come such a long way from their orthopedic-style shoes, which is what comfort used to mean. Their styles have improved by leaps and bounds without losing any of their trademark comfort. These boot are just as comfy as my favorite pair of sneakers. I bought the black initially and am so impressed, I just bought the brown. They're even giving my favorite pair of Frye's a run for their money!

Don't agree with the negative reviews. I have now purchased these boots in both colors. They look great with both smart works pants and jeans. They are comfortable for long walk to/from work and have done a great job in really stormy wet weather. I have been wearing these daily for past few weeks - no complaints.

One thing I've noticed about Clarks is that they tend to run quite narrow and small. This boot is no exception. I usually wear a 7 and the 7 is smaller than other Clark 7s I have by about half an inch. So I will need to order a half size bigger. Other than that issue, this is a really nice looking and feeling boot. It does not appear to have much arch support though and not super padded on the footbed. The boot is very comfortable otherwise.

I love this boot. I'm an 8.5, but that size seemed too small so I got a 9 (never wore a 9 before). The 9 felt better, but now it seems to be stretching and are a little loose. It's ok a little loose, but probably could have stayed with the 8.5.

This is a stylish, light-weight, comfortable boot that you can wear with skinny jeans tucked in or under boot cut jeans. I was able to walk around for a few hours in them without pain or blisters. What surprised me the most was how light-weight they were, you barely feel like you have shoes on! Only downside is that I have narrow calves so there's a 1-2 inch space between the boot and my leg. It would look even better if it was flush with my leg.

Nothing new to add, but as the other positive reviews have said, these boots are phenomenal. They are comfy from the get-go. No break in period required. I got the 9.5M and I found them true to size.

Love these boots! Very lightweight and comfy. The only thing is that they are much lighter in color than it looks online. More Taupe than Brown. True to size too, I wear 8 1/2.

These are great boots. The color is a very neutral grey which does scuff a bit but it looks rugged rather than worn out. The heel is a little stiff but it's loosened as I've worn them.

These boots are just right for everyday jean boots. They are comfortable for walking around outside & coordinate w/ a lot of things. I always get compliments on them. I am very happy w/ these boots.

Very cute style, however the shaft is really rigid, this could be because of the leather strapping detail. I have normal ankles and can zip the boot up, however after walking in them for awhile, they will rub and I have to unzip them 1/2 way because it becomes uncomfortable.

Boot s

from New England

These boots are great for outdoor walking in slushy/snowy New England. The lug sole gives them good grip and the style is a little more streamlined than a traditional "biker" boot which is nice. They are also very comfortable. I got the gray/taupe leather and treated them with Raingard as I do all my boots. The leather took the cream a little unevenly but the color should blend completely over time as it wears-- the unevenness is barely noticeable anyway. I ordered my usual size 8 in Clarks which is perfect with a thicker sock. If you want to wear with a thin sock, I'd recommend ordering a half size down.

I really wanted to love these boots right out of the box, as others had. But, alas, they are not meant for my feet. A bit tight in the toes, not quite enough arch support. I can tell this angle of the heel, minor as it is, won't work for me. Good, somewhat heavy leather. Love the grey color. Sigh. Such a good looking boot.

These boots are very comfortable. I can wear all day, walk all over and not have back and knee pain (5 surgeries already so hard for me to find good shoes). Be sure to spray waterproof first. Spilled wet products did leave a stain.

I liked the look of these boots but they didn't fit as well as I'd like so I'm returning them. This boot was just a bit too snug across the widest part of the foot and my heel slipped as I walked. So a little too narrow in the front/not snug enough in the heel. I do have a narrow heel. Also, there was very little arch support in these. I'll keep looking!

What a cute boot...but for my size 11 foot simply too small even in a size 11. It's going back.

Loved the look, but these run small. I have other pairs of Clark's and have never had a problem with their sizing. Toe box is small, and shoe felt at least a half size shorter than other Clark's and other brands.

Love the look, and brand but disappointed as the shoes were tight/rigid and felt sharp against my heel as I walked. Not sure if going up half a size will make a difference. Sadly will return.

Nice looking boot. It's described as leather, but I didn't see it marked leather anywhere on the actual boot or box. The top opening tapered and I was looking for a more open top. Overall I liked it, but it wasn't exactly what I was looking for once I tried it on. Good neutral gray/taupe color. Good sole, seems like you would not slip when the weather is wet or icy.
