Clarks Artisan Aldea Palm Leather Flats w/ Flower Detail
I purchased this shoe and it gaps badly on the sides. I will try to wear an insole in the shoe to help this situation. I love Clark shoes and usually they last a long time. The quality of the leather used to construct this shoe is questionable.
Extra extra wide
These shoes gapped at the sides. I have never seen a Clarks do something like this. XX wides. I sent them back immediately.
I love these shoes. I find them to be very comfortable, nice looking with pants or skirts, and the fit was right on for me. I got the coral and it is a beautiful shade and very soft and padded. Mine do not gap at all as some have mentioned. Now I want a pair in black.
Bought these in coral when they were a TSV. Was a little afraid because of having had my acyllies tendon fixed and the shoes are flat BUT to my surprised they are very comfortable and the only thing wrong was they gapped a little on the side but other than that I can wear then all day and my feet and tendon are nice and comfy. I would recommed them to anyone.
Poor Quality for Clark's
These are lovely to look at off the foot, but.......
As other reviews have said, the leather is not quality shoe leather. It stretches out and gaps badly on the foot, doesn't stay in place on the foot.
Certainly not Clark's quality.
I received these in the coral...so pretty! And comfortable! Fit true to size and width, and they don't gap open on the sides when I bend my foot. Love the color!
This little flat has all the appeal of a ballet flat but feels classy in the champagne which is a pearlized finish. Clarks is also known for its supportive structure which is not lacking in this little number. There is arch support and also plenty of padding throughout so needless to say it is more comfortable than most flats. Of note, many found the sizing to be off but I found it to be perfect in a 10W; the length and width accurate. I had no problem with the gapping on the sides. Maybe that was due to the mis-sizing for those individuals. I am loving mine and wear them for dressy casual even though I would not hesitate to wear them for other occassions.
Cute design, but disappointed in the fit
Out of the box I loved the look of the shoes; however, the leather is so soft that it stretched out after one wearing and it is difficult to keep the shoes on my feet. I put an insert to help keep them on. I would have sent them back, but the time had expired.
These Run LARGE
I order Clarks shoes often, and always order my usual 7.5, which have always fit and don't need breaking in. With this shoe, however, the 7.5 was too long and loose. Either Clarks and QVC's sizing are off, OR it is a quality control problem at Clarks if this is a larger size with a 7.5 size labeled on it.
Whichever the problem, I will have to pay shipping back, and pay to have the correct size shipped out to me when I reorder. This is so disappointing, as I don't have a ton of money to spend on shipping, especially when I ordered the size I always wear.
The shoe itself is lovely, I ordered the black leather, and the padding is wonderful! Especially the padding in the back above the heel - I won't have to purchase those little pads that prevent the heel from slipping off your foot. I also noticed the problem with gapping on the sides that other reviewers have mentioned, but I can deal with that as long as I have a shoe that is comfortable, looks good, and I can wear right out of the box... I reordered a smaller size to accommodate the issue with sizing, and we will see how they work out!
so not CLARKS
so disappointed....i luv all my clarks ..but the fabric denim material was like cardboard!
i always wear the same size...these were tight across the top and my foot is slim.
so these will be a definite return and i will not order the artisan label nor any type of fabric material from clarks.
This shoe is really cute---runs true to size and really comfy'.........
I ordered the 9 1/2w in denim. Fit beautifully right out of the box. Looks great with my denims. Very classic styling. Too bad the black is sold out in my size. May go for another color but the price is a bit high. I bought mine with easy pay option. Bring back the easy-pay and I'll buy some more.
