4.0 out of 5 stars Great shoe other than the insole, February 10, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Clarks Men's Touareg Oxford (Shoes)
I have had may clarks shoes in the past. This shoe is like the rest of them... Well made and quite comfortable. I am satisfied with the shoe and assume it will last me a long while.

Pros:
Nice color (Will match any color from light brown to black)
Well made
Stylish
Durable sole
Real leather (unlike sketchers or other low cost/high markup shoes)
Sheep skin, inner tongue (for easier in/out due to softer leather)

Cons:
Made in China rather than the former [exceptionally made] European Clarks
The insole is thin and cheep. (shame on clarks for doing this)
Insole was damaged

I really wish clarks were still made in Europe like they used to be, but the shoe market is VERY competitive, so I cant blame them too much. The build quality is near the same as it used to be but the insole is MUCH cheaper and would most likely cost $1.50 at Wal-mart. There were four things that made clarks brand the best shoe around: Quality Leather, Build Quality, Price, Insole.
This shoe has all of the above, without the insole. The insole that came with my shoe was thin and folded over, which made a crease which my foot rubs against all day. The former clarks had a GREAT,thick cushioned insole, which equated to most of the comfort found in the shoe. Although comfortable, this shoe may not be an "all day on your feet" type of shoe.

I give the shoe under 5 stars because of the crappy insoles, but the shoe is still a clarks, so... it is a great shoe. I would buy it again because the pro's far outweigh the cons. If you buy this shoe and have had clarks for years, you may notice a difference, but if you are new to the clarks shoe, Im sure you will be satisfied with your purchase.

Note: I usually wear an 11.5 (12 in Nike), but a size 11 in this shoe fit perfect
