Men's Wallabee Run
Dress them up, dress them down. Look fantastic with a pair of dark wash jeans. I've had a pair for over two years now with an estimated 1,000+ miles of traffic in them (vacation, work, etc). They are finally starting to wear down but that's after some pretty intense abuse. I will buy another pair, I may buy two just to have them around. Versatile and awesome look, but atop that they are also comfortable. Great shoes, worth every single cent.

Great all around shoe!
Love this shoe. Wear it daily for work and also for casual circumstances. Like the look and comfort with a more practical, treaded sole than the original wallabees I had in college. My only suggestion would be to put a softer insole and to consider selling them with elastic shoe strings. I changed out the factory strings for elastic ones I had from a similar boot, and it's made the shoe! Now I can slide them on and off with ease, but they form to my foot securely. Just something to consider...

Good-Excellent except for scuffing of the leather surfaces.
My only reason not to rate the shoes as good-excellent is the leather will show scuff marks from very minor contacts. On a positive note -the shoes are comfortable and the size was accurate. I tried to spray coat the shoes with silicone water repellant, as recommended by another reviewer, but it did not solve the scuff problem. Applying shoe polish does help remove some of the scuff marks.

Overall the best casual shoe I've bought/own hands down. Shoe is very comfortable and looks great. Received plenty of positive comments and a few offers to buy them off my feet!!! Great shoe, probably will try and run in them next time but will definitely be buying same style in different color!

I've worn Wallabees for years now. These shoes are incredibly comfortable. Because of the quality leather and craftsmanship, I've been able to get away with wearing them to work. The comfort and quality allows this to be a very versatile shoe!

A more refined Wallabee without the clunkiness of old
I wore Wallabees in high school in the early 1970s. They were kind of clunky, but we all liked them; and they lasted a long time. These are a nice update that look more mature and -- flash -- they actually fit. For some reason Clarks and almost every other shoe brand has changed their sizing, so a 7M is now really an 8M or even larger. These, however, are true to size. The only downside is that there is virtually nothing on the inside: zero arch support, no padding in the heel, and the forefoot is literally bare. I'm using an extra-thick running insole, which works pretty well, but will keep looking for a better solution. Still, a nice casual shoe that works great with jeans and khakis.
