This particular pair of Clarks runs small
on April 25, 2014
I am a big fan of Clarks Shoes ...I have been buying them for some time now and I learned after I bought my first pair of Clarks to buy them a half size smaller. I always wear size US 12 in oxfords...but in Clarks, I wear a US 11.5 . These shoes do list US 11.5 but I had to return them for size 12 . I have no idea why the sizing is true on these but that's what happened. Amazon customer service was amazing as always and arranged for the return and exchange to a size 12. I really like the look of these dark chocolate brown shoes...the leather upper is very nice looking and looks great with jeans or chinos...and they are comfortable as you would expect from Clarks...these are not cheap looking shoes and I get compliments but at $83.00 I was a bit surprised by heel and sole materials "synthetic molded sole"(that's the only reason I gave 3 stars)I think Clarks cut corners but honestly, nobody can tell when you wear them. The synthetic sole material that is used seems to be sturdy enough and does provide comfort .I'm sure I will get a lot of use out of these . Now that I have the size 12, I am very happy.
