Took a bit of fine tuning but love them!
on January 16, 2013
I had to order three pairs of these shoes, two in size 9 (my regular size) and one in 8.5. I had read many customer reviews saying that these stretch and run a bit big by 1/2 a size and I think that is true. I could fit two fingers in the 9 when I pushed my toes all the way to the front, and if they had stretched it would have made me feel like I could slide around in them.
I wore the 8.5 all day yesterday and it was a little snug but by the end of the day they were fine, and my feet were not sore or in pain. They are great. I am glad I decided to try the 8.5.
The insole is very thick and in some ways feels like it makes them feel funny. You could also buy other insoles if they were a little snug because when you take the original insoles out, they are much roomier. I decided to keep them in because I think they have a therapeutic integrity to them that I didn't want to take away.
Amazon was great shipping and refunding so far. My only complaint was that the 8.5 pair did not come in a CLARKS box! I guess the box got ruined and they had to replace it, but it made me a little curious. Nonetheless they are fine, and original, and I was able to send the other pairs back free return shipping, so that was great.
Will enjoy the old school, groovy look of these earthy but hip shoes. I can't believe more people don't have them. They are pretty unusual and snappy!
