I have had a pair of these for forty years.
Best shoes I have ever owned. I have had three different colors over the years but I always go back to brown. I have outlasted three stores where I purchased them. I only purchased online because my shoe store said it would take four weeks to get my size. I guess they were going to ship them on horseback.

A great comfort shoe
My dealer stated this shoe was no longer made. I am glad I called the online store,

I like the style.
I've only worn the one pair of shoes twice and found it to be very comfortable.

Great comfortable shoe! Only one minor thing missing
The shoe is an absolute joy to spend a day in. Very comfortable and quality built!
Only one thing would improve the overall concept. The tongue of the shoe does not have lace crossover holders. Most other shoes have these (laces cross through the tongue). Without them, the tongue slips into the shoe as you're putting it on. It's quite annoying to have to dig it out after the shoe is put on.

not the same as before
24 years wearing Clark nature veldt. I found it not as comfortable as before. Maybe I should elect the wide version of the shoe. However I am still in love with Clark

Love the shoe. Looks and feels great.
Clark shoes are always reliable for fit and style. These shoes work for casual or dressier occasions. These shoes were a gift for my son. He loves them.

Toe Box smaller than prior versions
I have been wearing Natureveldts for nearly 30 years because of the quality and the nice toe box which allowed my feet plenty of room in the toes. I have owned probably 8 pairs over the years. When it came time to replace them, I was happy to find them back in stock on line. However, the new pair has a smaller toe box, height wise. Length and width appear to be consistent with prior versions. The toe box is too tight for my feet, so with Clark's assistance I am returning them.

Favorite Shoe - Ever!
I have been wearing Clark's Natureveldts for about 30 years! The design has changed slightly. They used to have more of a "lip" where the top attaches to the side around the the front of the shoe, so they're a little dressier looking now. The originals made in England always fit perfectly right out of the box. The last couple of pairs that I bought were made in China and were a much narrower and tighter fit, but I stayed with them and finally got them broken in. The new pair that I just put on have the same perfect, "right out-of-the-box" fit as the originals from England. Thanks for listening to your customers and making the necessary adjustments! I love these shoes!

I have worn this shoe for many, 20 yrs. +, and will continue.
The services you provided me to correct a shipping problem were customer oriented. Clark's evidenced an understanding of service to mean exactly that, service to the customer. Correcting a company error was secondary.

Such a comfortable shoe
The Natureveldt has been a favorite of mine for years. An excellent fit, it takes very little time and effort to break in the shoes. The leather is soft, sturdy and of good quality, and the shoes last a long time. The soles are thick, and excellent for walking and hiking. I like the classic, casual style and they look great with khakis and a blazer. I have a black and a brown pair, and when I ordered them on-line they arrived within a couple of days. You just can't go wrong with these shoes.

I have flatter, wider feet and have a lot of trouble finding comfortable shoes. These are almost the only dressier shoes I can find that are comfortable enough to wear all day every day. Great shoes! A little pricey, but if you have the funds, they're probably worth it.

Deserves to remain in the line up... a great original design!!!
I've been buying the Naturerveldt 1 and 2 since the 1980s. I fell in love with their durability and fit, and their long lasting comfort as they were originally made prior to this most recent incarnation - from China, I believe. I cannot knock the Chinese manufacture it is at the least very good. But what I can knock is the deterioration by some extent of the fit of the shoes. They are still one of the best comfort shoes out there, but for some reason, when they disappeared from the marketplace a few years ago, something happened to the philosophy behind how they were to be made. And, more practically, I have to wonder if Clarks didn't dump the lasts they had used for decades and had new ones made. New ones that do not, in my case, anyway, fit quite the same.
While I am grateful for their reemergence in the marketplace, I only wish that they fit quite as well as they used to. Perhaps with time and wear they will, but they used to fit just perfect right out of the box. I don't know if anyone else has noticed these issues, but with my short wide feet, I have. Keep up the good work Clarks, but don't lose sight of the best things that made your reputation years ago. Old fossils like myself will fade away, but there are always new generations of folks with feet with needs - and that doesn't change.

Comfort & support of a running shoe for casual and dress occasions
I have had the opportunity to wear Clark Shoes for over 35 years. During that time, I have always greatly apprciated the overall comfort and durability of the particular styles I wore. Sometime, approximately 20+ years ago, someone suggested I try the Clark Natureveldts. From that time to the present, I have found, these to exceed my expectations for a casual and dress shoe. I have also been a long distance runner for nearly 40 years and the Natureveldts have provided the most comfort and support to that of my running shoes more than any style or brand that I may have tried during that time. Also, over the past 18months I have had 3 surgeries on my feet and though I tried several other styles/brands that were highly recommended I came back to the shoes that have contiuned to provide the most overall comfort and support of any casual or dress shoe I have worn. I recently purchased -2- new pairs of Natureveldts and they both fit and feel as comfortable and supportive as they always have. I am very grateful that with so many changes to styles and brands over the years that Clark Shoe Company continue to offer the Natureveldts.
