1.0 out of 5 stars Soles Wear Out FAST and seep moisture to your feet, December 29, 2012
This review is from: Clarks Men's Axl Moc Toe Slip-On (Apparel)
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!

Try some Shoe Goo on those soles to increase the life. I had the same thing happen to a pair of Dockers boat shoes. Sealed it right up.
