Finally, an answer to women going through years of torture wearing unnaturally shaped conical-front "stylish" shoes
These are the most comfortable shoes I have worn, and my feet can finally breathe. I have pain in the ball of my foot, and sometimes after a workout the feet and first two toes would lock up and be painful. I had to sit down and massage to bring back the toes to the proper position. Most women's shoes are either stylish or comfortable. It is rare to find dress shoes that are both. I wondered if years of wearing dress shoes where toes have to be all scrunched up together might be causing the pain. Regular women's shoes invariably have a triangular/conical front. With the usual conical-foot design, the toes all need to be joined together at all times, and the foot ends up in an unnatural position because while the toes touch the shoe, the ball of the foot is unevenly placed.
Decided to try wider shoes to see if my foot pain goes away. Chose Clark's shoes because they looked promising, with a wider non-conical front. Went ahead and ordered the 7.5 W instead of the usual 7.5 that I buy in other brands. While it fits great on right foot, its a bit wide on the left (and that's not the shoes' design, can't help it if feet aren't the same size). But finally, finally, at the end of the day when I change out of these shoes to go for my workout, my toes aren't locking up and there is no pain in the ball of the foot. My feet are comfortable all day, and I will tolerate the slightly loose left shoe for that. I wonder why they don't make women's shoes like this - comfortable and stylish, and meant for wider feet. Real women don't have conical feet or tapering feet. The natural foot shape is wider at the front. Wake up, shoemakers!! Why do women have to go through years of torture wearing unnaturally shaped tapered-front "stylish" shoes, or have to suffer with flat and ungainly shoes that make one's feet look like a duck's feet, just to be comfortable? With a little careful design and thought, shoes like these can be made!!

Worst shoes ever!
I've worn Clarks shoes for years. The last pair I had lasted me for over a year, and they don't make that one anymore so I decided to try to this one which is similar. They were very comfortable when I first put them on. I've had them for less than 3 months and they're going in the garbage. The heel worn down faster than they should've, and unevenly. The "outside" heel on both shoes is severely worn down - I do NOT walk with my feet at a ninety degree angle! I have never had this happen to ANY other shoe I've ever worn (or currently wear) including previous pairs of Clarks. It's extremely bizarre how they've worn. Plus, the one heel actually cracked open! I absolutely do not recommend these shoes at all, and I will never be buying Clarks again. Honestly, you're better off buy the crap they have at Walmart than this.

Awesome shoes, may run big
I am writing this review on behalf of my wife. These shoes themselves are great. She has worn many Clarks for work and these are of the same great comfort and quality. The only problem was that, while all her other Clarks fit great as size 7.5, these were way too big as a 7.5, so we had to exchange them for a 7, which AlumiGogo was happy to handle without any difficulties, even sending the replacement pair before receiving the 7.5s.
In conclusion, these are great shoes, but I knocked off one star for the size not being consistent with other Clarks.

I like these shoes
I like these shoes, except that they are a tad too big even with inserts. I ordered a wide size since that is what I usually wear, but I probably should have ordered a regular size. Unless your foot is very wide, you can probably fit into a regular size. I was hoping that walking around in them would make my foot fit better in them, but they are still loose. They would fall off if I needed to run in them for some reason. I think if you are able to find the right size, you will like them since they are comfortable and look good with business casual and casual clothes.

Split out side!
Buyer beware: I had these shoes less than two months when the side split out! The return window was only a month.
I'm super picky about my shoes because I don't like my feet to hurt. These shoes fit well and were comfortable. After wearing them about 10 times, I noticed this split in the side. I'm so disappointed to have spent so much for a pair of shoes that didn't last any time at all.

I never hesitate to order Clarks through the mail! They ALWAYS fit! THe quality is excellant and the designs are always new and classy. I don't like wearing anything with a heel, but in this brand I can go 2 inches! i highly recommend this one, its cute and comfy!

These shoes are very comfortable. My left foot is slightly longer than my right foot and I always try shoes on with my left foot first. I could tell that as soon as I put my foot in these that they would be comfortable for me to wear to work all day without any pain!

The Sizing is Awful!
The sizing was awful!
I love Clarks shoes. I assumed their online sizing would match up with the sizing that I have found in brick and mortar stores, but I was sadly mistaken. Either Clarks' quality has taken a MAJOR turn for the worse since last year or the shoes I was shipped with the Clarks name were not really made by Clarks.
My feet are almost identical in size. I have never experienced one shoe fitting one foot significantly differently from the other before, but I did with all of the pairs (5 of them) that I purchased online from you within the past month. Only one pair was passable in spite of one fitting slightly different from the other.
In fact, last year I purchased the exact same pair of shoes, style and size, from a brick and mortar store and they fit me perfectly. I naively thought I could duplicate that experience by ordering the exact same pair (size and style) from you online line. Unfortunately I had the same horrible experience with your shoes' random, uneven sizing. Both heels were too big and the heel on the right shoe was so big that the shoe was slipping off my foot when I walked. This is entirely UNEXCEPTABLE!
I am never ordering shoes online again!

Very Comfy supportive shoe for work or casual
I love my Clarks! These shoes are very very comfy!! Purchased for a vacation trip to Spain. I wore them as I walked all over the region I visited. I never got blisters. These have a cushioned supportive insole - I highly recommend if you're looking for a comfortable casual shoe that can also be dressed up. Note: I purchased one 1/2 size up from my usual size and they fit perfectly. Highly recommend!

A Good Shoe for Work (EDITED)
I've bought this same style of Clark's for several years to wear to work and, while I generally like them a lot because they fit well, this particular pair is a bit tight on the top of my left foot. I've never had this issue before so I'm not sure what's going on with this pair.
***EDIT*** After having this pair of shoes for less than a year (February 2017 to July 2017) with light use, the right shoe has split along the seam on the outer part of the shoe and split through the sole as well. I'm quite disappointed. I've purchased this style of Clark's for a number of years now and never had the issues I've had with this pair. I'll be going out to purchase a new pair of shoes tonight and they almost certainly will not be Clark's.
