Many reviewers here say this shoe is ultra-comfortable and they're right! Right out of the box they fit like gloves on your feet, and they're so light they feel like you're not wearing anything.

I must assume, however, that none of those reviews were written 6+ months after normal daily use, walking on pavement and indoors. If they had been, they would have reported that the same super-light plastic sole that makes them so weightless, wears thin & porous and actually seeps water up from the pavement, through the footbed, to wet your socks. I'm not kidding, and I've got the wet socks to prove it! Whatever plastic composite is used for these soles, turns into sponges after about 5-6 months of daily pavement walking. And of course, these type of plastic-composite soles cannot be re-soled at your local shoe repair shop.

Although these are sold as inexpensive, ultra-light, casual shoes, you should still be able wear them, or any big-name-company shoe, daily for at least a couple of years before something like this happens.

Clark's declined to publish my review containing this important information on their own website, claiming "Unfortunately your review did not meet our guidelines for posting on our site"
But I read through their guidelines, and I did not violate any of their guidelines.

So are these some of the most comfortable shoes on the planet, and should you buy a pair? Yes, as long as you are willing to repurchase them about every half-year just to keep enjoying them with dry feet!

The whole shoe seems to mold itself to your foot, the size was right on the money. The shoe breaths all the time and my feet don't sweat so much. I will be buying these until the company stops making them. They are now replacing the pro walkers I have bought for years. My feet feel so much better at the end of a long day.

Extremely lightweight, very comfortable, easy on/off, but they stay on securely. And they wear as well as any shoes I have ever had. And they look really nice. Somebody in China gets an attaboy for these.

Ive had my first pair in tan of the clark's axl ,thanks to my father, since I was on my last year in medical school some 3 years ago.
SInce then Ive managed to own a total of 4 pairs in a size 10.5M.
I have two pairs in the tan ,1 in the brown and another in the black. My father only has two pairs a brown and a black both sized 9.5M
They never needed any breaking -in.they are the ONLY shoes I'd like to wear for days and days before this last purchase.
I recently bought 2 pairs in California and didnt see the need for trying them on ,in store.
Sadly ,when I got home I was disappointed to find out that the leather is not as soft and that the sole was not as soft and cushioned as compared to my other four pairs when I first put them on from the store.
these latest batch is not as comfortable as the first batch .
I dont think breaking them in would help,because the previous Axls that we have were perfect fresh from the store.
On close examination you could tell that the latest axls felt cheap to the touch and even cheaper on my feet.I compared them both to one of my almost new pair of tan axls from last year.My father agreed .He and I wondered why Clarks would downgrade the Quality of an already "perfect" shoe .
I had to go back to the store and bring them both back .

I am a clark fan and this shoes was disappointing. As a medical professional I was able to immediately identify the shoe's lack of support for the arches and had poor cushioning. The materials were cheap . I tried to polish the shoe and it refused to shine. Thats when I realized it wasn't leather. In 10 minutes my foot start hurting. I bought this from peltz shoes ( Amamzon market place) and returned it the same day with original packgaging with no signs of wear or tear.. THEY REFUSED TO TAKE THE SHOE BACK AND I LOST MONEY. I SPENT MONEY TO SENT IT BACK AND NOW THEY WANT MONEY TO SHIP IT BACK AS WELL. BUY SHOES ONLY THROUGH AMAZON. AMAZON IS THE BEST BUT PLEASE DONT BUY ANYTHING FROM PELTZ SHOE AS THEY WONT TAKE RETURNS OR EXCHANGES. CUSTOMER SERVICE WAS RUDE.

Love these shoes. Lightweight and very comfortable. Work well for a business casual look. They do run a little wide, which I also like.

These are great shoes. Comfortable, light, and suprisingly well wearing. I just bought my third pair. No, the first has not worn out yet. I just like them so much, I am afraid they will stop making them, and they do come in two colors.

A real treat for your feet. Wear them every day. They are light weight yet supportive. Should have ordered both colors. I highly recommend these shoes for dress and casual wear.The soles wear well also. I would definetly buy another pair.

Bought this shoe for my special someone. It's perfect. Fits him perfectly. Dresses up a plaid shirt and jeans nicely. Great shoe, great fit. Would definitely recommend. Clarks does it again.

I have been buying Clarks shoes for about 12 years. Clarks shoes are the most confortable and durable shoes I have used.
This model is incredible lightweight and a very confortable pair of shoes, but I prefer to use these more time to comment about how the (ab)use is going to impact the leather, because it is very very thin.

That's' it.
