Pros: Very nice looking modern style Oxford, a good business casual style great for around a business casual office.
Cons: Very uncomfortable poor insole with a strange bump in the heel. It is very flat, basically a hard leather insole with no padding. I walked around for a few continuous hours in these and my feet just hurt due to lack of padding in the insole and their design with poor arch support. This is after breaking them in for 2 weeks.
The sole seems to be wearing quickly, only having worn them two weeks. Being such a light color it quickly just looks dirty, not a good look.
I don't like the finish on the leather, it acquires scrapes too readily and I immediately used an oil leather sponge to make them look a little less scuffed up. Also don't like how a giant crease forms quickly in the front top of the shoes due to where the food naturally bends.
It seems like a quality shoe but I find myself not wanting to wear it because it is uncomfortable.
Not everyone will have the same experience I did, you may not need to break them in as much before being able to wear them.
I wear a 10.5 US in most shoes but bought a 10 based on customer review here and they are perfect fit. I would measure your foot in mm and go by that, mine measured 167mm, standing.
**** A word of warning, new they are super stiff and feel like you are wearing plywood shoes. But I took another reviewers advice and rubbed them with mink oil and wore them around the house for 1hr and they were loose and molded to my foot.
The only negative I have is there is no insole to speak of and this makes them, not as comfortable as they could be. Yes there is a small padded bump in the heal but it is more annoying than comfort adding. If you require an insole I might go a half size larger. If Clarks would add their ortholite insole to these, they would be top notch in style and comfort.
