Rated 4 out of 5 by VWladybug Love my boots
These boots are so different that I knew I had to try them. They run a bit small so go up at least 1/2 size larger. Great quality. Takes a little breaking in. So stylishly!

Rated 2 out of 5 by sipper out of what ??????
I have a beautiful light green pair. BUT, not the Dessert boots I remember from the 1960's !!!
Toe base is narrow, toes are crowded, so uncomfortable. The back is higher than I thought, hitting the back of ankle.
Missed the deadline to return or would have sent back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lesguerra exactly what I've been looking for
I was really nervous buying these shoes because I have pretty wide feet but I tried on about 3 different sizes because like others have said, they are pretty snug on my feet.
I ended up buying a pair that was the size I normally wear. I have had them for a month now and they have broken in quite nicely. they are super comfortable and I wear them every day now. I dress semi casual with a bit of vintage somewhere in there and they seem to go well with everything. they even spruce up the simple tshirt and jeans look which is nice.
I entirely recommend that for the first 2 weeks you just wear them around the house. I tried to wear them while grocery shopping and that was not a smart decision. they will totally break in but just have patience!
the woman that helped me in my local Clarks recommended that you actually buy something that fits a little snug because she made the mistake of buy something that fit fine and so when they broke in she had to buy insoles because they fit her feet way too big, which totally makes sense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by caitlynb Love this boot
I appreciate honest reviews, even if they end up being long. So here's mine and I hope it helps!
I ordered online because the closest store is an hour away. I got them quickly in the mail and was so excited! To my disappointment, they were really tight at my arches, which I had expected because after doing research and before buying, I learned that they are supposed to be worn in, which I was okay with.
After wearing them a bit and trying to stretch them myself, there seemed to be no end in sight to how much pain they were causing me! So I drove to the closest store and had them stretch the boots (I wasn't comfortable having some random shoe place do it in my city) and it helped a ton!
I've now worn them for 5 out of the last 7 days and absolutely cannot say anything bad about them once I got the fit figured out.
BUY THIS BOOT!

Love the show itself. After a couple days of breaking them in though they are very narrow. I definitely need a bigger size. I would recommend going up half a shoe from your regular size of you want the best comfort and fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sal49 Remembered why I loved these!
I love these boots. After years of wearing running shoes the sole felt a bit hard, but my feet at the end of the day felt better than they have in years!
I like the looks. I like the feel. I will buy again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sligocait Very stiff, difficult to break in
I love the look of these shoes, but they are very stiff and painful on my feet even though the size is correct. I am still trying to break them in slowly, hoping they will soften a bit soon, but I can only wear them for a short time before they really hurt my feet. I love the look but I'm very disappointed in how much they hurt my feet.

I have really wide feet, so upon reading reviews I really wanted a pair, but was cautious due to them being narrow. I bought a pair and went in store to try them on, I ended up buying a pair a size up from what I normally wear. But they are extremely comfortable and have adjusted to my wide feet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lyone Long lasting and high quality
I bought the leather desert boot about eight years ago, and my pair is still going strong!! They are comfortable and they stand up to bad weather. I wear them in snow and rain through out the winter months. Just give them a new waxing each year and they are good to go.
Clarks makes excellent quality shoes. I was so impressed that I came and bought a pair of red ballet flats a few years later. These have also worn beautifully.
I recommend these shoes to anyone--especially world travellers and weekend trekkers.
PS. My Clarks are my cat's favorite shoes to cuddle up to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shelby1992 I love this shoe!
I am being careful about breaking these shoes in because I got blisters after wearing them for too long but I want them to be perfect and I think they will be!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarlyJo Very fashionable!
I got these boots because I needed something with a little more support, but still look fashionable. They have been very comfortable and durable! Would definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lglux Love my new desert boots!
I am happy with the look and feel of these boots, and got a lot of compliments the first time I wore them. True to previous reviews, they will need to be broken in but I don't see any issue with that. Very cool boots, I highly recommend them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by shabbychic13 Just need to break them in
I was a little weary of these boots when I first got them because they were very tight and I had to go up a full size. The sales associate didn't mention anything to me about them running small but having purchased leather shoes before decided to give them a try anyway. I started wearing them every few days but never for a full day because they were tight. After about a week or two they felt AMAZING!! I wear these boots almost every day and would buy another pair in a heartbeat! Best boots I have ever purchased and super comfortable. Just don't wear them all the time right away, break them in slowly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chole Good Quality, Poor Fit
In order to break these in, I have to wear them once a week. I say once a week because the bruises left on my achilles heel are too bad to wear before a week has passed. I did indeed get the correct size, too. The leather is just VERY stiff. Also, I don't have monster feet by any means, and these shoes are hard to get on because my foot is too thick. Be prepared for a long process of breaking these bad boys in if you're going to purchase!
