A217100 - Clarks Bendables Leather Center Gore Sport Shoes
LOVE THESE! :)
I have ankle problems, so my mom got me started on Clarks. They were great for when I was working weddings, and now I've bought these for myself for medical school! My heel slips just a bit, but for me, I have that issue with most shoes. These are great and I can stand and walk around for hours on end and not be in pain by the end of the day!
Look Good, Feel Great!
These have to be the most comfortable shoes I’ve gotten in a very long time.
I love these shoes to wear with jeans! Much dressier looking than sneakers.
I receive a lot of compliments on them. Would recommend to any one who demands comfort! I have recently had foot surgery and find that I can wear these all day without feeling the need to get out of my shoes!!!
Great Work Shoe
I, like many others, have lots of Clark shoes and boots. Wear these to work - concrete floors - every day. No problems, just comfort. Width, length, inside heel, color - everything, right on. Have the navy and will order the wine soon.
Love these shoes!
I had hip surgery and these shoes were SO comfortable to wear afterwards. I've had gals ask me where I got them. They're easy to put on and much better looking than sneakers.
Fits different than other Clarks
Ordered these as Privo don't come in wide width. Liked black and navy colors. Plenty wide as they stretched the more I wear them. I have abt 20 pair of Clarks so am familiar with the fit. These fit strangely as the heel slips off or down my foot and they do not have as much support as other shoes I have. Feels like the back of my feet sit lower than the front like "Earth" brand shoes. Tweak them and you would have a winner. Am keeping because am getting used to them. Plus side many comments on how cute they are.
Very comfortable, but heel comes out
Strange fit to these. Good looking shoes, very comfortable in the toe box, nice cushioned sole, but my heels come out while walking! They feel very soft in the back and don't give blisters but I don't feel secure especially if I walk quickly. But I will keep them.
My New Favorite Shoe
I love these shoes, I'm glad i didn't pay attention to the reviews. I wear a 10.5 and purchased the 11 in black and i love them. They are a cross between casual and dressy when my feet are hurting from wearing heels i put these on and i still look put together especially with dress pants. As far as the other reviews about the fitting I do feel slippage on my heel depending on what kind of socks i wear, but i have worn these for hours and have not developed blisters or discomfort from the heel.
I would recommend this for my girls who dont like wearing heels but who also does not want to wear super casual sports sneakers either.
Did Not Work For Me
I gave these two tries but am returning for the second time. First time ordered my usual size 7 and they were both too short and too narrow. Then returned for 71/2 hoping they would work. They didn't. The first time I wore them outside of the house I walked around in Walart then in Sam's and by that time they were wearing a blister on both my little toes. There is a seam inside that attaches the tongue to the shoe and I think that is what was rubbing. Too bad. Wanted to keep them but just can't. I did like the gray color and sporty look.
I like the shoe. The color (Gray) is great. I agree with the others that the heel feels a little wonky. I wish that it had more padding on the inside sole. I love the Clark's with lots of padding. Lately the shoes have less padding.
Oh sooo disappointed.....
I really liked this style, which is more reminiscent of the Privo brand. I was interested in trying them because Steve Mahoney said they had the same footbed/ sole as another popular Clarks sport shoe that incorporated the bungee design. I much preferred the look of this particular version, but the deal-breaker for me was the neoprene fabric used around the heel area. The presentation I saw did not mention this detail and it was not noticeable in the pics online, otherwise I most likely would not have ordered them. Just as I had feared, the material is too soft and my heel slips out of the back of the shoe. Otherwise, they would have been a perfect alternative to sneakers. The front of the shoe was a little bit snug but I know with Clarks quality leather, it would have relaxed and become more comfortable with time. The shoes are true to size. Huge disappointment - typically love my Clarks purchases. :+(
I love them!
I love the style of these, and I found them to be very comfortable. I didn't notice any issues with the back of the heel. I love Clarks anyway, but I like that these a a bit more casual. Now I can wear these instead of sneakers for running around town in jeans and a sweater. I recommend at least trying them.
