Shoemakers since 1825
Our story began almost 200 years ago when Cyrus and James Clark made a slipper from sheepskin off-cuts. At the time it was ground-breaking; a combination of invention and craftsmanship that's remained at the heart of what we do. And whilst now, as always, every pair of our shoes begins with a last carved by hand from a single block of hornbeam, advanced construction techniques, technologies and contemporary materials help us deliver perfection tailor-made for the modern world.

Out of the box, the shoes may appear to have scuffs, but before you go returning them in disappointment, check to see if these marks are just powder. One of my shoes had some kind of powder on it out of the box that came off with a gentle brushing. The powder was probably a desiccant (from one of those silica bags that say DO NOT EAT).
Now for the fit. Putting them on was a bit difficult, but that's to be expected with an ankle boot that has no side-zip and minimal lacing. The biggest problem I had with the overall fit of the shoe is the bridge - the top of the shoe where the laces rest. I felt a few points of pressure coming from straps that the laces are anchored by.
If you are feeling a similar tightness in your new pair of Clarks, worry not, there's a solution. I did this and now the shoes fit fine! Basically, you put on thick socks, stuff your heavily-clad feet into the shoes, and apply gentle heat to the tight areas with a hair dryer set on low. I put on hiking socks and used my grandma's trusty solid steel shoe horn to get my feet into the boots. Then I used the hair dryer as described. Don't hold the dryer directly on the leather. You don't want to heat the leather too much or else it will harden. Basically, you're "massaging" the material - the pressure from your sock'ed feet accelerated by the radiant heat of the dryer stretches the grain of the leather.
I felt the sock and hair dryer technique take almost immediate effect with these shoes, which again was a promising sign! After about 10 minutes of heat treatment, the shoes were no longer uncomfortable to put on and wear on my bare feet. I am grateful for that, as these are just too darn beautiful to pass on.
Overall, I highly recommend these shoes! They are so stupendously gorgeous. The suede is a lovely deep navy, and the construction is marvelous. The only problem is with the bridge's fit, but that can be remedied with ye olde sock-and-hair-dryer treatment.
UPDATE: I've had these shoes for about 10 months now and I love them. I do believe they love me too considering how they treat my feet. After only one or two wears, I stopped noticing the tightness in the bridge of the shoe, so I either have permanent nerve damage or the lovely leather broke in. I'm going with the second option because I can still feel my feet. I found a suede brush in my garage so I've been dusting off these shoes after each use to further bolster these boots' affection for me.
Long story short, the shoes break in marvelously.
I returned them with much sadness because otherwise, they were exactly what I was looking for. I have to wear sure-footed shoes and it's important that I trust them on any and all flooring.
The down side is that it is very uncomfortable. I buy Clark's shoes a lot. I'm a teacher and they are my "go to" brand for work shoes, but these can't be used for more than a couple of hours without giving me terrible foot and back pain.
I gave it another try a few weeks ago because I wanted to look cute for a concert, and I almost take them off and walk barefoot. If I don't find some sort of magic insert to make them a bit mlre comfortable, I will have to throw them away.
It makes me sad and angry that I expected Clark's comfort and got something else.
I love the way these look and ordered them in the brown oiled and black suede. They look more expensive than they were, and I find the rubber sole and heel comfortable.
I have giant size 11 wide feet and because I don't wear heels a lot my foot will cramp up a bit when I do. I could probably stand to wear heels more often (now I can because these look so great) and I'm hoping these will get more comfortable as my foot muscles get used to it.
I wear these with jeans that are rolled up right past where these end and they look good. If I can dig out my longer straight leg and slight boot cut jeans I'll definitely wear these with them - I've always liked that look.
I bough 11 wide and that's my usual size. They fit perfect with thin socks, and I wore them once with very thick winter wool socks and they were a big cozy but not uncomfortable. I expect them to stretch a bit and fit better with time.

paid a lot for them to be delivered to the UK but totally worth it
I have bunions and the wide fit helped ease the pain a lot
