I've been a Clarks Wallabee wearer since I was 14 years old. I'm an old fellow now but I still wear them. A lot of people, especially the younger generating, will find the Wallabees to be the ugliest shoe ever made. But to those who grew up in the 80s, and are now hitting early 40s (well now you know my age)..the Wallabees is THE coolest pair of casual shoes ever. It's comfortable. It's simple. It goes well with jeans, khakis. If you have the Tan suede, it'll look even better when it's been aged by dirt and grime, it adds that "used" effect.

If you want to go classic, buy the tan suede low tops. I never liked the tan suede high tops for some reason. Black suedes come in high tops only I think. Brown suedes in high tops only too. But I could be wrong.

Now as far as where it's made. Long time ago, the Wallabees were made in UK by Irish shoemakers. Now, all Wallabees are made in China. You won't UK made Wallabees I would think. While I was living in the UK three years ago, I bought two pairs of Wallabees in London, and guess where they were made? China! So if the Brits think Wallabees made in CHina are good enough to be sold in London, then it's good enough for me. At the end of the day, the Wallabees is UK. I've owned two UK made Wallabees and it's no different with the ones made in China now, same materials, same stitching, same everything. The only thing you need to be aware of is the sizing. I had to take a whole size lower than my usual footsize. Make sure to fit them properly before you buy them. Clarks Outlet here in VA are very accomodating with returns and exchanges.

Just buy Wallabees and enjoy them.

These shoes are the best. They are classic Authentic Clarks and look, feel, and smell of quality. MAKE SURE YOU ORDER A SIZE SMALLER than you wear. Im a size 10... so I ordered a size 9.5 and they fit perfect. Wallabees run big.

I really like my Wallabees. The only thing I would warn people on is that they run big, so trying a pair on in the store before you order wouldn't be a bad idea.

The shoes were a gift for my son...he loves them! They are very comfortable, great quality, and were a very good price compared to in-store prices. He tried them on at a mall store and selected the color he preferred, then we ordered them from Amazon and saved about $50! I was thrilled!

I gave these to my husband for Christmas, they bring back memories of high school when Wallabees were all the rage. He loves them... I ordered a 1/2 size down and they fit perfectly. My college son liked them so much, he ordered a pair! Timeless style.

I love these shoes on my husband, but the ones he is wearing are falling apart. They are so old, I could no longer read the size (I actually couldn't find the size anywhere). He usually wears a size 9.5, so that is the size I ordered. Too big. I then ordered the 9s. Too big. I just placed an order for 8.5 and I will let you know.

The shoe itself fits okay, and looks good enough, but the inner padding is quite uncomfortable, and in fact, is a disaster! The inner padding is separately inserted into the shoe. But if you take out this inner padding, then you still have a rough factory padding remaining. It's uncomfortable, either way. So, I'm going to have to get a new inner padding, or else return the shoes. They are too uncomfortable as is, for the feet. I wonder who decided to create this inner padding insertion? That was not part of the original design of Wallabee shoes, as I remember them. This one fault alone is disqualifying, in my view. Unless I can have it fixed at my regular shoe repair shop, I'm going to have to return the shoes. It just hurts the soles of the feet too much to walk on them!

Had a pair of these, in suede, as a teenager. They are extremely comfortable, and they wear like iron. They are casual shoes, out-of-place in formal dress situations, but are designed well enough for just about anything other use, office included.

I had forgotten they existed, until I saw the dude from "Breaking Bad" wearing them. I poked around Amazon for a few minutes and ordered mine immediately.

I have one criticism of the black leather variety: I am a clergyman, and wear black as a 'uniform.' I need my shoes to be comfortable and always presentable. The blacking of the sides of the crepe sole, put on at the factory, wears off too easily, causing the shoes to look less presentable. I'd love to see the factory do some magic to make the coloring more permanent.

I've owned a pair or brown oily leather Wallabees going on 4 years now and I couldn't be happier. You truly do get what you pay for and with these, you're getting a lot more bang for your buck. If you're thinking about purchasing Wallabees, do yourself a favor and get Originals with the crepe sole. You won't regret it.

tried the women's size on in the store and it was very narrow, so she brought me a men's size and they fit perfectly and looked the exact same, except they were $21.00 more. so i found them on here and am waiting for them to get here! i got them $60 cheaper. they are so comfy and are like wearing slippers. love them.
