Good, but odd
This is a great nude wedge. I usually get a 12, but had to exchange these for an 11. They run half a size too big, but they are also wide! There is a noticeable gap on the side of the shoe when its on the foot. I definitely recommend trying this product on in the store before buying.

*This review is for the Beige Leather Purity Crystal Wedges*
After initially eyeing and trying on the Burmese Art wedges, I decided to set my sights on the Purity Crystal wedges instead.
In my opinion, these shoes look better online that they do in person, but only slightly: the coloring is more vibrant and almost more homogenous when viewed on a computer screen. In-person, their coloring is more muted, with a small but heavier concentration of a deeper hue accumulated at the tip of the shoe. They are, however, a classy touch to nearly any ensemble, and a breath of fresh air introduced to the dressy shoe category. I have no doubt that I will receive years of use from these wedges. *A note of caution: be sure to properly care for these shoes, as they are leather! Proper cleaning and polish are a must to ensure longevity and preserve appearance.*
If possible, I strongly suggest trying these shoes on in store before purchase to avoid any size disparities and the hassle of returns/exchanges. The support is no cause for concern; it is evident that Clarks thoughtfully constructed (firm) support in the often-overlooked/neglected areas (particularly the arch), providing comfort in every inch from the heel to the toe. In the past three weeks, I have worn these wedges on three separate occasions (all with quite a bit of walking involved) for upwards of 20 hours with minimal decline in comfort. Because these shoes are made of leather, they WILL stretch, so bear this in mind when selecting a size: the length is true to size, but the width will become wider than normal, allowing for sliding (and possible irritation) when walking.
Aside from these nuances of leather shoes (which must be anticipated and accepted to truly enjoy the shoe), these wedges are spectacular in looks, versatility, comfort, and support. What more is to be desired in a wedge?

Love these shoes!
Very cute and comfy. Runs true to size. Can't wait to wear them with skirts and cropped pants in the spring!

Noche looking but hard material
Nice shoes, but hard material and too shiny for me.

I really liked these shoes. The problem is, for me, the heel was too high. I really could not comfortably wear them.

The shoes are absolutely beautiful! They are comfortable, professional, and fashionable.

First, these shoes are much darker than they appear in the picture online. They are more of a dark green/gray than mushroom. With that said, they are still a beautiful pair of shoes, and they look good with a lot.
Second, I have worn them a few times now, expecting them to get more comfortable with each wear, but they aren't getting there. They hurt my feet in multiple spots from rubbing, and the cushioning that I expect from Clarks is just not there. I am a teacher, so I need comfy shoes, and I am typically in LOVE with Clarks shoes, but these are definitely not my favorite to wear solely due to comfort. If you aren't planning on walking around or standing in these very much, then I would recommend them. However, if you do need to stand and walk a lot, these are not the shoes for you.

Nice shoe, but not for me
I really like the looks of this shoe - compared to other similar looking shoes these ones look much nicer. I tried a 9 and a 9.5 (usually a 9 in Clarks) and 9 was too small and narrow, 9.5 was too long and still felt a bit narrow. I have wider than usual feet, though I never actually wear size "wide". I also felt these were .75 inches too high for a work shoe. I sadly returned. If the height and width work for you, I think they were very attractive shoes.

High-class, extremely comfortable wedge
A truly great wedge-heel; every key part is cushioned (ball of the foot, arch, even your ankle) and still this shoe is on trend and looks fabulous - even better than the pictures, in my opinion.
I especially love how the tall heel accentuates and lengthens my legs, without sacrificing any comfort. Definitely the most comfortable pair of wedges I've purchased.

I ordered this shoe because I wanted a shoe in a color other than black. I was not disappointed. This color is different but it works as a neutral and looks great with blue and grey. This is a very comfortable shoe. I have to walk a lot at work and my feet were happy all day!!

3rd Pair of this model
I love this shoe - I love the shape of it and the wear of it and now have 3 different pairs. I love that i can wear them with jeans or a suit, with tights/stockings or without.

So cute but color isn't as pictured
These shoes are very cute in person. The mushroom color is different than what's pictured though - it's actually much darker (a very dark brown not mushroom or taupe).
