  • 2 stars out of 5Vietmanese Cobblers

    Christopher, lichfield

    You know when you are on to a bad shoe when the laces supplied aren't actually long enough to tie up properly - at least in the extra-wide fit that I had. The sole is plasticky and hard - not like other Active Air soles I have had - and the uppers are stiff and unforgiving. This time the Vietmanese Cobblers have come up with a poor shoe that really isn't worth the money. Plain uncomfortable. But that rubber band you get around the shoe box is very useful ...

    We received our ordered shoes very quickly. The ordering process couldn't have been easier and our son is delighted with his new shoes. We know they will be ok because he has had the same ones before.

  • 5 stars out of 5Very good purchase

    Philip from brandon

    I have been wanting shoes that are wide and high enough so that they do not impinge on my big toe joint, as I suffer occasionally from gout! These shoes are perfect, wide with also plenty of height, so no presure on my toe joint, but also with a very comfortable sole, making them the best shoes I have worn in years. So good that I have purchased two pairs! Highly recommended.

  • 1 stars out of 5very dangerous in the wet

    virani, beckenham

    I am a postman of some 30 years and in all that time I've never had a more dangerous pair of shoes. These shoes are well made, comfortable and long wearing but if you wear them in the wet you will risk slipping over and injuring yourself. In the 7 months I've been wearing these I've slipped over at least 10 times, once landing me at the A and E. Each time I go out on my round and if the pavement and paths are wet I can guarantee to slip several times. I have stayed with them just because they cost me nearly £80. I hope Clarks read this because they really need to do something with the sole as in its present form it is not fit for purpose. I have always bought Clark shoes in the past but these have made me go elsewhere...Avoid unless you only go out in the dry. Feedback from Clarks: We are very proud of the quality of our products and to ensure this all our new designs and materials are slip tested before they go on sale.  If you are disappointed with any of our products please return to a store with your receipt so a member of staff can investigate.

  • 5 stars out of 5sturdy and smart, yet comfortable

    D Graham J, leicester

    I have bought several pairs of these in both colours over a few years, and now I can't imagine changing to another style. I used to have Achilles problems, but the cushioned soles solved that. I also need a wide shoe, and have found no other wide style that is properly supportive.

  • 5 stars out of 5Store went extra mile

    John from ilkeston

    I have to have my left shoe adapted by the Orthotics Dept at Derby Hospitals and not all shoes are suitable. This is a bit of a nightmare when choosing shoes. Ilkeston Co-op Clarks' shop identified Star Stride as probably suitable and had a pair sent to my home with sufficient returns time to send the shoe away to check suitability. It has been done successful and the shoes are very comfortable and light even with the 21mm raise I need. Thank you!

  • 3 stars out of 5Star Stride Shoes - Wet Grip

    G W from fleet

    These are wide fit but are only marginal for me across the instep - toes and heel are roomy. Perhaps that's just an issue for me (with most of Clarks current shoes), but I have a general complaint with these which surprised me:- After a few weeks wear I found that the rubber soles could be quite slippery in the wet. It may be the little dimples being the main contact area. If you meet a flat floor which is wet the shoes could be lethal - on ordinary wet pavements they just induce an uncertain feeling. Never had this from Clarks before, the thermoplastic or whatever that the generally used was good for grip in nearly all conditions. Rubber never was good in the wet,'though, - I'm surprised they have used it. Feedback from Clarks: We are very proud of the quality of our products and to ensure this all our new designs and materials are tested before they go on sale.  If you are disappointed with any of our products please return to a store with your receipt so a member of staff can investigate.

  • 5 stars out of 5Star Stride - Comfortable & Hard Wearing

    Terry from london

    This the second time I've purchased these shoes. The first time was just over 3 years ago and, although they are still in excellent condition, the sole has worn down, so decided a new pair was needed for the winter. Luckily Clarks haven't changed the design - the new pair are just as comfortable, are extremely well made (as usual) and they look great too! 5/5

    Wide fitting and thick sole comfort combined with rich leather uppers make them worth the money. Conscious of protection soles give from rough surfaces compared with cheaper shoes.

    I suffer from very painful feet and found it very hard to find comfortable shoes. Someone from a well known store suggested trying Clarks shoes, I am so glad I did apart from the young chap being very helpful my size had to be ordered and home delivered which I was amazed to receive them in two days. I will be going to Clarks every time in the future.

    Bought these as a Christmas present for my husband, but he opened them before the day and started wearing them straight away! He's worn them every day since. Says they're the most comfortable shoes he's ever had and with all the snow they were a God-send as he isn't too steady on his feet! They also look great with jeans!

    L. from blandford forum

    Ordered these in the shop for home delivery (they didn't have my size in stock). They were delivered 2 days later which was 3 days before they said they would deliver. Have worn them all day, every day, since and they are spot-on for comfort. Have to say that the tongues were a little stiff on day one but that seems to have eased now. I was a bit apprehensive about ordering shoes without trying them on (I tried smaller and larger in the shop) but needn't have worried.

    Graham from boston

    Less than 22 hours after ordering, a very nice pair of shoes arrived. They were a direct replacement for a similar Active air shoe that has lasted me 6yrs without repair. These are not so rounded in the toe and have a better grip to the sole without being a tank tread. I look forward to wearing them.

    These are very comfortable shoes, which I could wear all day and for walking long distances. However, in wet weather on smooth surfaces, the soles are extremely slippery to the point of being dangerous. What a great pity. Come on Clarks, please improve the composition and/or tread pattern!

    If you do a lot of walking in your job, these are ideal. They are well cushioned and offer great support. I have found they require no breaking in and look good whilst offering enough space for the toes to avoid rubbing. Top quality and good value, nothing adverse so just the job.

    This is the second pair that I have purchased as the first are now 2years old and nearly worn out. Been looking for a good price but they must be popular as no one ever offers them at a discount until I found a 10% offer on the Clarks website. Ordered them on Saturday received on Monday all in good condition. Well done Clarks.

  • 4 stars out of 5Gloves for the Feet

    Christopher from hounslow

    I ordered these shoes online. They were delivered a day before the one estimated. I tried them and they fit like a pair of gloves. I wore them for work the next day and I hardly knew I had them on. They are sold as casual but in fact are quite smart. They are still a bit stiff and need some more wearing in (hence 4 not 5). So far so good. A word of warning though, if your feet are not very wide, which mine are, they will slop around in these H fitting shoes.

  • 1 stars out of 5Dangerous when wet!

    Charles, alton

    I am a lifelong Clarks customer but I wish I had read the previous review before buying these shoes. I also found them to be dangerous on wet surfaces. The building I work in has a mixture of different surfaces and on tiles and vinyl and I found my feet sliding out from under me three or four times in the first day. Outside, on the paths, they seemed OK but inside on smooth floors with people coming and going with wet shoes I felt very unsafe. The problem I think is the large round dimples on the soles. They mean that on a hard surface you actually have only a small area in contact with the floor. Anyway, the shop were very good and gave me a refund without question and I have now bought different Clarks shoes. Feedback from Clarks: We’re sorry to hear you’re unhappy with your purchase. We do thoroughly test all our products before they go on sale, so the issue you describe seems unusual.

  • 1 stars out of 5Dangerous Soles in wet.

    Duncan from kilwinning

    The Active Air soles of the C&J mens shoes are a danger to the wearer when worn in wet conditions. It is like walking on ice, and the smoother the surface under foot the more slippery the soles are. This has been the case for years and Clarks have obviously done nothing to remedy the situation.

    Ruud

    I 've walked on Clarks shoes half my life, but I am not happy with the Star Strides a bought recently. They are very comfortable. They have a very good grip on dry surfaces, but they are very slippery on wet surfaces. I suppose the soles are slippery because they are a bit more foamy than on my earlier Clarks. I think Clarks should not sell shoes with this kind of soles.

    Nice, comfortable shoe but the inside ankle wall is a little higher than the outside and caused some chaffing for a couple of days. Once they were worn in, they became very comfortable and I would buy them again - hopefully not too soon, as I expect them to last for some time. That's why I buy from Clarks!

    Richard, kingsbridge

    These are shoes with a lot of positives, my favourite infact. They're the right size and width, they're comfortable to wear even all day, and don't tire your feet out. Great for driving as well. They're lasting well as well so far, I've no doubt a pair of these will last years with proper treatment. There is one downside - when new, their wet grip was terrible. Dangerous even, on ceramic tiled floors and brick floors. Once the small nubs have worn off the bottom they're fine, but something to be mindful of when new.
