5.0 out of 5 stars Casual Leather Shoe is Great looking, Comfortable and Well-made, January 5, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Clarks Men's Jink Oxford (Apparel)
Before these I only wore tennis shoes (Adidas or Converse; size 10.5). But now I wanted something slightly more professional-looking, that I could wear with jeans, and would stand up to the Michigan winter snow and slush-filed parking lots and walkways. So I decided to go with a leather shoe. I chose the Clarks Jink Oxford because I thought they were low-key, classic-looking--not too rugged looking like some boots or too dressy like some lace-ups. Much like the converse that I often wear, I was attracted to the minimalistic approach embodied in this shoe's design. Particularly, I was drawn to the thin, low-lying soles and the inconspicuous, super-low rise of the heel.

The shoes arrived quickly, packaged well-protected and in brand new condition, identical to the Amazon image. Size 10.5 proved to be a perfect fit, properly securing the foot; but not too tight--there's room to breathe, and they comfortably accommodate even my thick wool socks. The sole is sturdy and offers good traction.

They're not as comfortable as tennis shoes. I have no problem walking around, but when I'm seated I notice the shoes to be rather uncomfortable. Can't yet say how long these will last or how well they'll hold up against the elements. With proper care and upkeep, I don't foresee having much problem in this area.

a) "When I'm seated I notice the shoes to be rather uncomfortable" -- really? I ask b/c you have no problem walking in them.
b) I actually feel the same way...I wear only my Chucks or my Adidas Samba's primarily, even to work - which I am not supposed to. So after 2 years of working on the floors (of my hospital), I am looking for something a wee bit more professional.
c) how have the shoes lasted thus far? Thanks.

appreciate the feedback. Ive now had the shoes for about a year, and physically they've held up quite well. there is mild discoloration from wear and the elements, but the stitching/gluing hasn't diminished.
i prefer them as winter shoes, although snow and salt seem to be adept at leaving their marks on the suede material.
I will say that the shoes are less comfortable than I initially supposed, walking can be hard on the bottom of the foot
