Over the past 12 years I have owned 6 pairs of Wallabee Boots in beeswax. The construction, fit, and look have always remained consistently great so year after year I would always order another pair.
Unfortunately, this year, the Clarks company changed the shoe completely. It is poorly made and very uncomfortable. As soon as you pull them out of the box you can tell that they are different; they are lighter, the leather has a more of a plastic feel to it, and the once comfy insole is non-existent. They were returned as soon as they were opened.
I wish companies would respect quality construction instead of trying to compete with big box chain stores. I will no longer be purchasing shoes from Clarks until their product quality improves.

Crepe sole is thicker on one side than the other and body of shoe is off-center on the sole. Problem is severe enough so that physical therapist has warned that the shoes should not be worn, lest they aggravate existing back problems.

First off I was delighted to receive my shoes a day or so early ,cool points. I have been told the shoes may run small so I ordered a half size larger than normal and the fit is great. A very comfortable shoe indeed, excellent for the laid back and casual. I actually ordered a second pair because I was so pleased with the first. The funny thing is , I wear the other ones (blue leather) more because these here are so nice I don't want to dirty them. Thumbs up

Rated 1 out of 5 by Apollo Used to be a wonderful shoe...
I've had five pairs of the beeswax version of this shoe. The thing that I loved about these shoes was that they were constant and all I had to do was order a pair and keep on going. After coming back from Japan, I decided to order another pair because mine were getting old and I was slipping around when it was raining. Ordered my 8.5m beeswax and when I got them in everything was different. I thought I had ordered the wrong model, a cheaper version. the shoe no longer fit, it was too narrow, the insole was changed and non removable now, the actual sole seemed thinner, and even the shoelaces were different. Everything I loved about this shoe is gone. I was going to be a lifetime customer and now I don't know what I'm going to do.
I could understand you making an updated shoe and selling it for newer costumers but don't replace the older model. especially since it's do well beloved.

It is just to bad that Clark has decided to lower the quality of this shoe. If they could not make money raise the price not the quality. Start with the full length removable inter lining is gone. The shoe is no longer lined and has less support. If you can compare the shoe you have not to the new model. The many great reviews are for shoes you can no longer buy. Get it together Clark.

34 years old, a Wallabee fanatic since my teen years. Crepe soul is what truly makes this shoe for me. Quality is still the same, although pricey,, there worth the money. My only choice in footwear period.

Ahhh......the Wallabee Beeswax Boot! What can i say about thus boot thar hasn't been said time and time again over the many years. This is in my opinion the most versatile shoe anyone could ever own. The true comfort lies in it's simplicity.
Plenty of room in the toe box for any foot and toenails to relax in. Soft cushiony sole to tackle any terrain with ease that just lasts forever. Easy to put on with it's." wide mouth" opening, but once you lace-em-on,they engulf your feet like no other shoe making them hard to (want to) take off. The Wallabee was rhe first shoe that ever made me smile after the fist step but certainly not the last Clarks shoe .I own 20 and counting .

Wish they didn't cost so much and could still be bought at a local store like back in the 70's. Also wish they came in more suede colors, again like in the 70's. Still the most comfortable shoes ever made. Can be worn for everything.
