A214857 - Clarks Artisan Leather Sennet Shell T-Strap Sandal
I have these in black. they are well made and comfortable. They are very roomy in the ball/toe area. I normally wear a size 8.5 M in a closed shoe. I got these in 8 M and they are the right length, and even a bit *too roomy in the front* where I usually am squeezed and uncomfortable. If your foot is narrow these might not work for you.
Love this Sandal
I bought this sandal in the bronze color....I love this sandal because it is a dull or muted bronze as opposed to being shiny. It is a sexy style and I find it appropriate for wearing with jeans, dress slacks, sundresses, etc. I do have to say they felt a little unusual on the foot when I first tried them on as far as the instep area and I also thought the strapping around the ankle felt a little loose, but they now feel very comfortable to me and no issues whatsoever. I have worn them about 6 times so far and I love them.
Comfortable, pretty but needs adjustments
I like a flat sandal that is dressy, and this fits the bill, BUT a traditional buckle needs to be used for the ankle strap. It's almost impossible to get the strap through the tiny, flimsy leather piece that is supposed to work like a buckle. I did keep the shoes, however, and leave the strap fastened. The fit is fine once on, but it's very hard to slip the strap over my heel. (You can tell how much I love the shoe, because I'm willing to work with them!) Love Clark's shoes -- would appreciate more dressy flat ones.
Pretty sandal, but......
I bought this sandal in the bronze. It is really a pretty sandal & could be worn with skirts & shorts/pants.Nice heel height. Very soft footbed. My problem is the location of the buckle: it is right under my ankle bone, kind of towards the back instead of the side of the foot. I think because of the buckle location, I can't tighten it enough to stay on comfortably. The buckle strap is short too so no way I can make another hole. Sadly, I have to return them.
Only Order if you have WIDE feet
I have average sized feet: 7.5 MEDIUM, or B width. I can order online from other places and get shoes that fit perfectly.
However, these shoes are NOT true to size. They are LARGE. I ordered and received the 7.5 MEDIUM. I tried them on, and they are wide across the instep. I can get 3 fingers under the leather straps betwen them and my feet!!! And then it's still loose.
The design prevents tightening them at the Ankle area, and if I tried to walk in them, they would flap around and cause me to trip and fall. They literally Hang on my feet.
Unless you have extra wide feet that all other shoes are not wide enough for, these won't fit you. I would not recommend these shoes for anyone under a EEE or wider.
They are beautifully made, but not for normal sized feet.
Disappointed....I'm sending them back.
These have nice soles, but run very large. I usually wear 8.5 or 9, depending on the shoe style. I ordered a 9, and the strap around the ankle was too large to fasten securely (ie not loose) on my foot. Length was also too big. Not sure I like them enough to order another size for this price.
