Clarks Artisan Spye Belle Leather Ankle Boots w/ Buckle & Strap Details
I love Clarks shoes and boots but this boot is so uncomfortable. I was excited to get these and they did look very stylish but the first day I wore them my feet were sore. I could hardly wait to get home to take them off. I waited to wear these so it's too late for me to return them so they will either sit in my closet or I will give them away. It's like throwing money away!
LOVE- Finally a comfy boot
I own these in black, the fit is perfect in my size 11M. Plenty of room for thicker socks in the winter, but not at all large. Lots of Clarks quality and comfort. I have lower spine issues and can't wear anything too high, was so happy to see these in a lower heel and even happier when I felt the comfort. They don't throw you forward like a higher heel would, they allow you to stand straight and offer much support. Roomy toe box, but still very on trend, the buckles could be a little softer, but are not uncomfortable. MUCH thanks to Clarks for this last and the boots being designed around it, which deserve the highest of ratings.
I am normally an 81/2 so that is what I got size is too big I need to send back for an 8 .I liked tan color but they don't have so I'm going to try black ,if that doesn't work they are going back because they weren't cheap.
I just received these beautiful boots in Tan! WOW! They are truly beautiful! The fit is just fine for me - a little wiggle room for socks, but I usually wear thin trouser hose. The leather looks very expensive - oiled leather (not cardboard like a previous reviewer who apparently didn't read the description about the leather said)! I love them! Thanks Clarks and QVC! Very happy with this purchase! Love the stacked heel also - prefect height!
Well, these boots do have a rather odd fit. I normally wear a 6.5 and I ordered a 6 after reading the reviews, the 6 fits.
My heel does slip up a bit even in the 6. I think these boots are great looking and will not go out of style.
They are comfortable.
I own several pairs of Clark's shoes and have been very satisfied with the comfort and quality of this brand. So when I saw these, I immediately fell in love with the style and color. I wanted both black and tan, but was unable to get the tan, so ordered that color from another source for the same price. When I opened them yesterday, I was shocked. They were not the color of tan as it appears on line. It was actually rather ugly. They did not appear to be made well and did not even look like leather. They resembled cardboard. If I could give them a zero, I would. Truly, one of the ugliest pairs of shoes I've ever seen. They also were way too big width and length wise. Going back on Monday. Clark's, what on earth happened?
Amazing--wear thick socks--these rock!
These are drop dead gorgeous! I wear alot of boots, so know most of them you have to wear thicker socks or they slip at the hill. These type boots are made to wear winter thick socks with--not slippery thin tights. If you want to wear tights with them, then my recommendation is to add a short athletic sock also. A sock that does not show above the shaft of the boot.
With that said, I wear these alot and get tons of complitments. The tan are great with chambrey denim skinny jeans, turquoise jewelry for a more western look. And, the black are just hot rocker!
Believe me, they are worth wearing with thicker socks. I think you'll love them. I do.
Fits like a shoebox
Sadly, I had to return this shoe. It fit like a shoebox would fit. It was stiff, and felt miserable on my feet.
Cute, But Ouch on the Ankles
The zipper and seams on the inside ankle really rub the ankle bone. A blister started within 30 minutes.
Cute and Comfy
The reviews are correct about the sizing. I ordered these ankle boots in my regular size because I knew the socks I planned on wearing with them were really thick. When the boots arrived, I tried them on with my thick winter socks and they fit perfectly. When I put them on with thinner socks, my feet slid around in the heal. If you don't want to wear them with a heavy weight sock, I would advise sizing down 1/2 size. I would not recommend purchasing these ankle boots as a gift because of the sizing discrepancy.
Can't Believe These are Clarks
I can't believe these are Clarks, of which I own many. They were so uncomfortable I couldn't even walk across the room. I don't even know what to think. Very disappointed.
Sad to see them go...
Loved the look, size was right, color was perfect... so what was wrong? The leather was unforgiving & stiff and the foot bed was so uncomfortable. So sad, not what I am use to from Clarks. Went back :(
