The pair I ordered through Amazon (on the left) are made of thinner, less quality leather. The ones from Clark's (on the right) are a much beefier, thicker leather with a higher quality grain and have more of a "real leather boot" feel. Whereas the ones from Amazon feel somewhat like cheap knockoffs in comparison. They are still a decent shoe for the price. But compared to the ones from Clark's they seem much flimsier.
I ordered them 1 size smaller (12) instead of the 13 that I normally wear based on the recommendation of other reviewers. Toe length fit well, but the width just after the laces and height of the toe box is entirely too small. So much that it pinches the tops of my feet and toes. For the record, I have long, but slender feet.
I wore these shoes for an hour the first time and noticed a lot of heel rub not just on the back, but also on the sides of the heel as well. The front of the shoe is fitted and captivates the foot, but the rear of the shoe tends to slide and creating friction. With 2 pairs of sock, I managed to wear them for a work day and then walking around a bit after work. However, they were not comfortable. The shoe has no comfort lining at all so the leather rubs the ankle and the portions of the foot. The leather inside is rough and rubs against the foot. Since it doesn't have a cushioning liner, they feet like you are walking on wood as opposed to a comfortable surface. I put gel foot inserts, but could not wear them comfortably because the toe box is so small that it squeezed my toes against the top of the shoe.
I am not sure how this shoe received so many positive reviews. They look good, but are horribly uncomfortable. I had intended to use them as my every day wear, but am not sure if I can even do that. I would return them, but I treated them with leather conditioner before I wore them. My advice is to buy the same style shoe in the UGG brand. I looked at them in the shoe store. They are twice as expensive, but it seems like they have fixed everything that I don't like about these.
Soft crepe sole
Color variety in both suede and smooth leather
Three season boot that doesn't overheat your foot
Cons- long break in period (as are most Clark's)
Sole gets dirty quicker than synthetics
Ive recently joined the Clark's bandwagon after years of contemplation. Price point has never been an issue because if you care for these shoes they'll do more for you than you could ever imagine from a cheaper boot.
I also have a pair of chukkas in suede from Nunnbush and Clark's. Obviously I bought a pair in beeswax because I was pleasantly surprised with the comfort of the suede Clark's after a week (these are the 65th anniversary Clark's). My foot size ranges from an 8.5-9 but I went a full size down and ordered a 7.5. A tight fit but I know that after the break in period I prolly wont stop wearing these shoes. The main difference I found between my suede Clark's and NunnBush is that the sole is far heavier and gives the boot a quality feel. I'm not huge on the fact that the sole picks up just about anything but my NB have synthetic soles, that in 8-9 months time, have already worn down the tread. I also find myself slipping easier on linoleum with these then I do my Clark's. The only better thing about my NB, aside from price, is that the shoe has a soft interior and the upper starts to age nicely.
However the cheap foamy insert and, for lack of a better word, tacky colored synthetic outsole made me finally switch over and I decided Clark's was the answer.
I'm very pleased and satisfied with this purchase. The color is perfect and the fit is superb. I find another issue with other chukkas is that there is sometimes too much room in the toe box and having narrower feet means my foot is sliding around.
With regards to people saying that the leather creases and cracks easily should condition and polish these before wear and you won't have that issue. Also fyi; leather is going to do that, especially if it's dry and traveling in a box.
My size is is 10.5
i ordered 9.5
