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.

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 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 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.

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 3 out of 5 by JakeKT Looks good, but doesn't hold up
I love the way these boots look. They're versatile and can be worn with just about anything. They're pretty comfortable after you get them broken in. My only complaint about comfort would be that they aren't real breathable. So when I wore them for a full work day, my feet would get stuffy, but that is somewhat expected with boots.
My main issue is that I had mine for about 3 years, and then the sole on the bottom on one boot split across the bottom, all the way through. I didn't notice until I stepped in some water, and noticed my foot was wet.
I was really disappointed due to the amount of money I spent on the shoes that they didn't hold up longer. I didn't actually where them all that often, either. I was really surprised that such a soft material would split open like that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WhoDatCajun Excellent!
I have wanted a pair of these for a while and finally pulled the trigger on them. While they were a little stiff at first, they became very comfortable after a two day break in period. I am size 12 with slightly narrow feet and I went with the 12, even though I read that they run about a half size large. When I do it again, I will stick with the 12s because my experience is that they fit true to size.

Comfortable, stylish and has nice stitching. I hoped that the suede would be a bit more lush, but overall nice boot.

by Polisheagle1939 Excellent quality but strange color Navy Leather
I ordered this shoe in Navy Leather. The quality of the shoe is excellent, it fits well and is very comfortable. The only problem I have is with the color. In the photos it looks black but in actuality it has white streaks in it that form when the leather is moved. If the area doesn't move very much (such as the heel) the shoe looks black. However any area that flexes gets white lines forming along the flex lines and this gives the shoe a worn grey look. It is not a terrible look but it doesn't work for me as a dress shoes since I was expecting solid black. I am not sure if this is a defect since it appears to be from what ever they used to treat the shoe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by desertman Color and quality
The color is completely different from what is online. The quality is not like what they normally make. I loved Clarks but this last purchase of 5 pairs might be the last.... Disappointed.
