Buy 1.5 sizes small -- this is a great boot.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Clarks Originals Men's Desert Boot (Apparel)
This is an outstanding boot. Looks incredibly good (better than I even thought, even with my high hopes going in) and also feels comfortable. I have read a number of reviews complain about the comfort, but that might because they are buying the wrong size, which brings me to my next point -- IMPORTANT -- these things run LARGE! If you're gonna get them, pick up a pair that is 1.5 sizes smaller than what you would normally wear. I usually wear 11.5-12, and the 10's fit my foot perfectly. Kind of annoying to deal with Clarks sizes, but damn they feel good now that I got the right pair, and the style of these boots more than makes up for this minor annoyance.
No comment on the longevity yet, but they feel sturdy and well-built. Of course, standard tips for suede shoes apply (don't walk through the snow with these boots).
In terms of style, the grey distressed color goes well with my blue jeans, black/grey jeans, and all black pants. I think they look best with skinny pants, but you can wear them with just about anything. A casual t-shirt, oxford, dress shirt (tucked in or out), and what I think is the best - a slightly baggy/oversized sweatshirt...looks freaking amazing. I don't ever rate clothes online (this is my first review) but I highly recommend these shoes.
