Rated 4 out of 5 by corporatecommunicator Very hesitant to buy the shoes again
If there's any kind of rational thinking management looking to better the quality of this brand it's taking a look at what the customers have to say. A good third of the reviews address the quality of the soles. "Clarks" have to revamp and reinforce the way they make the soles of their shoes. There should be no reason that after 10 months of normal wear of a shoe that the soles corrode. Employee communication is key in a successful business and getting the message to the manufacture is the first step. Ya'll can do better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Zach13 Too big and not the right color
The shoes don't resemble the picture well, it was more of a darker gray and wasn't what I expected. Also I would order them a size smaller, they run big

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Update of the original, the best, desert boot
Love these desert boots so much I had to get a 2nd pair. I really like the rust finish. Although a bit narrow for my wider set feet, I know they will stretch with wear, as my old pair are very comfortable now. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LgBob Love em!
I used to wear these in the 60's. Now, there's all this colors and leathers to choose from. I wear them with no socks and they feel great. When my ankles swell up, they are perfect!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Alsmith217 Crepe sole just doesn't last
I love the look of these and have owned several pairs in various colors. The way the leather wears over time is also great. However, the crepe sole never lasts me more than 10 months before a hole develops through the entire boot at the ball of the foot. I wear them M-F for work and a small part of my commute is on foot. I wish these were more durable. Of course you could always resole them with a rubber sole but that can be expensive. My current pair is about to wear through and I think I'll make the switch to a more durable boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TrumpetFngrs16 Overall Amazing Shoe
The shoe color itself is a little darker than what is seen on the display pictures but it stays true to the description. The suede made me reluctant to purchase but it's not a cheap suede it is of utmost quality. The insoles are also like mini clouds cushioning your feet as you walk. Amazing shoe overall, the only thing that keeps me from using it everyday is so they last longer. 5 stars

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bobio Oakwood review
I was disappointed that the color of the Oakwood desert boot was lighter than the photo online showed it to be. I have a pair of sand desert boots and the Oakwoods weren't much darker. Nevertheless, I love the retro look of the desert boots like I wore in high school in the 60s. As always, I buy Clarks boots a half size smaller. They are very comfortable, but I have other Clarks boots that have more support. With desert boots, you either love them or you can't figure out what the appeal is.

Rated 2 out of 5 by StellarLas Love the Desert boot but wish they had not changed the sizing
The Desert boot is a classic for a reason, it's dressy, it's casual, it's my go to shoe for everyday. For this reason I walked through my past pair and was looking to replace them online for convenience. Unfortunately, Clarks has decided to gender these shoes and create a Men's and Women's version since I purchased my last pair. Long story short I ordered and returned four pairs of shoes trying to find the right fit but no luck.
The "womens" runs a little narrower and the leather is darker for some reason.
I still intend to replace them but will have to do so in store.

These are will always be the greatest shoes ever made. That is why the "Original" has been around for so many years!

Rated 2 out of 5 by djwerd Major Issues With The Sole
I love the way the boot looks and feels. However, the crepe sole has some major issues. Hopefully the sole material on my pair are defective. In only 1 month I've worn a hole all the way through the sole and footbed. I've never had this happened to a pair of shoes in my entire life. I contacted Clarks' customer service and I'm hoping they make it right.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sfrank Would like to see different insole
Would have given them a 5 * if it wasn't for the liner.
Went with what the reviews said about size. I wear 11 and ordered 10.5 perfect fit.
The only problem I have with the shoe is the original Clark's foot bed liner. Started to come unglued after the first few wears. Going to put another insert in and that will take care of the problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ChetWalters101 Nice stitching
Comfortable, stylish and has nice stitching. I hoped that the suede would be a bit more lush, but overall nice boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by QuaintIrene The price is right...
...got these in a Clarks one-day sale. I used to wear Clarks desert boots when I was a student in England when they were 10 pounds a pair and I am not THAT old. I do think they are terribly expensive now but love them and was delighted to acquire these in a very nice green colour. They fit well and as the last pair of Clarks originals lasted 2 years of literally daily wear, I trust these will be similarly long-lived though I may change them up with other shoes so that they last longer.
