Clarks Bendables Ashland Pearl Leather Lace-up Shoes
This shoe is well made, attractive and the size is true. My only issue, and it is significant for me, is that the sole is hard. It is not like other Bendables. I depend on Clarks and the Bendables category to be as flexible and soft as advertised. This is the only style that has not worked for me. I still wear them but only if I am not doing much walking.
Squeak When You Walk
Over all the feel is great, but the air pocket in each shoe makes a voice when you walk. I have been wearing Clarks for over 10 years and this pair of shoes are the only pair I have had an issue with.
Loves these.I bought for work because I am on my feet all day. Very happy feet.
These shoes are very comfortable
I have these shoes in burgundy and brown in 6 1/2 wide. I am flat-footed and have bunions, and find them to be VERY comfortable. I agree with the review about the leather laces easily coming untied, and just double-tie them. The leather laces will last longer! Nice, attractive shoes.
Poor arch support
This is a nice-looking shoe and is stylish even in size 11. A good friend loves her Clarks so I thought I'd try them. But, it turned out that it has little arch support and caused me great pain in my shins and feet after walking around for only about an hour. They also make a horrible clacking noise on the floor because the outsole is so hard. In the future, I will stick with shoe brands which I know have lots of arch support.
I ordered these due to my DR. telling me I need a good flat shoe. I have to dress up at work so I was looking for something that I could wear with nice slack pants. I thought I would give these a try. I absolutely love them. So comfortable and my feet didn't hurt all day. Will be ordering them in brown too..Very true to size The only reason I gave it a 4 star & not 5 is because of the shoestrings. I wish they were material and not leather. Hard to stay tied. Just double knot them.
The only reason I would not recommend this shoe is because it is not a true gray shoe. It is brown. So if you are looking for gray, this is not the shoe. They are very comfortable. I returned the shoe because it is not a gray shoe as I ordered. It is actually brown. I received the brown shoe when I ordered it in red.
Great Shoe for a long day on your feet
As always I am never disappointed with any of Clarks Shoes, but this little darling has quickly become my big favorite for those days when I am on my feet most of the day, they are of so comfy and if its a little slick outdoors they have great gripping ability, all along with a great look, much much better than the regular sneaker or athletic looking shoe. Thank you Clark's
Smart looking shoe
This is a very comfortable shoe, and in spite of it's plain-ness, it is very smart looking on the foot. I have ordered Clarks for many years, but only recently did I discover that some foot beds would fit my foot better than others. The Ashland is my shoe!!!!!!!!!!!
Was Prepared to Send These Back
I really did think I would be sending these back, mostly because of the styling. Well, they are absolutely not going back. I think these could be the most comfortable shoes I have purchased ever. That's saying a lot, but I truly took them out of the box and wore them for hours with no problems. And this time the sizing is great for me, and I can't say that for some other shoes lately.
The styling is a little old ladyish but hey, I'm an old lady anyway. As for the gray, I will agree with another reviewer, in 95% of the lighting I was in, they appear brown and even the burnishing is hardly visible. Please offer this shoe in some pretty colors soon or even a prettier gray. I do love that Clark's is offering so many loafer styles lately and so many different colors. I am retiring most of my clogs and even some clunky sports shoes and loving going back to some of the styles of the past that are timeless and comfortable and still good for our feet. Thank you Clark's Shoes!
Great Comfort; Great Fit
Love the comfort of Clarks and have worn their clogs for years. Happy with fit, style and color (grey) of this shoe. Recently I was very disappointed in having to return two other pairs of 10M Clarks that were a little too long. Apparently needed 9 1/2 so was especially pleased that these fit so well. It is annoying that the laces do not stay tied but, as others mentioned, I double tie them. I like the look of the leather tie, so would not want to change to a conventional lace.
Talk about cute!
I have many, many pairs of Clarks. These are an awesome addition to my collection! So cute!!! So much cuter in person than in the pictures online. I got them in wine and might have to get them in black too. Very, very comfortable, fit me true to size (seems like Clarks is running large in the heel area in some shoes lately but these are not for me in 10M). I have gotten multiple compliments on them. Love!
