  • 1 stars out of 5Would rate zero if I could!

    Bought these in September for my 10 year old daughter. They were in the bin by October half term. The sole is far too thin and comes apart at the toes - showed signs of coming apart within 2-3 weeks! The laces are also far to long and the material used for the laces means that they come undone all of the time. These are the worse pair of shoes I've ever had from Clarks. My daughter was desperate to have these and they were a real disappointment. Feedback from Clarks: We’re sorry to hear you’re unhappy with your purchase.

  • 2 stars out of 5Will not last

    Amanda, salisbury

    These shoes were for my 12 yr old daughter. The soles are very thin and the shoes are of medium quality. I don't believe they will last that long but considering childrens growing feet I hope they last at least until too small. That brings me to the price, being very expensive for shoes that do not have good durability. I have 4 children altogether and I buy Clarks to ensure a good fit but disappointed I can no longer expect them to last as long as required.

  • 1 stars out of 5Very poor value for money

    These have to be the worst clarks I have ever brought and unfortunately the only clarks shoes that my 11 year old has ever liked!!! I brought my 1st pair in September and 6 weeks (although after 2 weeks they needed to be returned) later returned to shop as front falling apart and soles wearing thin. I was given a full refund and told that there had not been a problem with any other being returned, but decided not to re purchase. However I found myself in January 2014 in Clarks and purchasing a second pair as the only ones my senior school 11 year old would wear and hoping that the 1st pair was a fault pair. How wrong was I again 3 weeks in my husband was gluing front down to allow my daughter to continue wearing, I am about to return again and will be requesting a full refund. Come on Clarks I think its about time you sorted out this problem, you get a design that the teenager will wear and the quality is so poor that parents wont buy it!!

  • 1 stars out of 5Very poor value for money

    Donna from biggleswade

    If I could rate these shoes as zero then I would have. We were very pleased with the style of this shoe & the quality appeared good but after just a few weeks the soles had already worn thin & the heels had completely worn down. The laces are also poor quality. A few girls in my daughters class also have these shoes & have experienced the same problems. We have always bought Clarks but will be looking elsewhere in future. We have 3 children & the boys shoes from Clarks seems very sturdy and long lasting but the shoes for girls are not at all sturdy. Clarks - Girls also play & run about in their school shoes, please make girls school shoes for children to be children & not just for sitting in class! Overall I do not feel we have received value for money with these shoes.

    Wasn't sure about buying these shoes in the first place...but my child loved them.

  • 5 stars out of 5very grown up shoes!!

    Leanne from farnham

    When my six year old chose these shoes, I was a bit dubious as she had only just learnt how to tie laces and I was worried with the morning rush it would just add pressure to our day. But my daughter Amelia was adamant these were the only shoes she wanted and even though the very helpful Sales Assistant, Steph from the Camberley branch got a range of shoes for her to try on, she was determined that these were the ones, so you can imagine her disappointment when she needed a slightly narrower fit that was not in stock. Steph very kindly looked for the pink ones in the correct size to check the size and give Amelia a true reflection on how they would feel, then she ordered them on the database and they were delivered to our door within 3 days!! Great service... Thank you Clarks and Amelia is now an expert at laces :)

    These shoes were not in stock today in the store in my daughters size, however the sales assistant was lovely and has ordered them for us to be delivered. I am now concerned having read the awful reviews regarding the quality of these shoes, so will wait and see. I can't fault the service in the shop am just hoping the shoes are of the same quality otherwise will probably shop elsewhere.

  • 1 stars out of 5Very Disappointing for Clarks

    Love Clarks shoes and never go anywhere else for shoes for our 5 children however we were very disappointed with the quality of these shoes. Got these for my 11 year old daughter as she was starting secondary school and wanted a more 'grown up' style however the quality of the shoe is less than desirable. The sole is very thin and within 2-3 weeks had started to come away from the shoe at the toe area. I took these back to store to be offered a repair. I reluctantly agreed and these were returned with a less than desirable repair job. Once again within 2-3 weeks the sole came away from the shoe around the toe area. My younger children (and more heavy footed, due to school playtimes) have some excellent school shoes from Clarks which are still in excellent condition. I would rate these shoes a zero should this option be available. Excellent looking shoes for the teenager but something needs to be worked out with regards to the quality.

  • 2 stars out of 5The worst laces ever.

    I bought these shoes for my daughter in September and it's not even November and I don't believe they will last very long. The front of the shoe is already showing signs of coming apart, but probably the most annoying aspect are the laces. They literally come undone all the time. My daughter complains constantly about the laces and a friend in her class has the same pair and she has said the exact same thing. I'm tempted to buy some ribbon just so they don't keep coming undone. Lovely style though and it doesn't put me off buying from Clarks, but I won't be buying these shoes again.

  • 1 stars out of 5The worst clarks shoes I have ever bought

    My daughter is on her second pair of these shoes since September 2013 and now need to buy her a third pair! I thought she was just being really hard on them so never returned them. After reading these reviews there is obviously an issue with them. I am like many other people and my daughter loves these and only wants to wear this style. Clarks please sort this out it's costing me a fortune The sole at the front just comes away and the leather just wears away.

  • 2 stars out of 5Soles really thin

    Jane, cheltenham

    I agree with all the other reviewers - Clarks really need to do something about the quality of the soles of many of their childrens' shoes ; they are not up to Clarks usual standard. Daughter has had 3 pairs of these so far (have to buy this style as has high instep AND wide H fitting) and both have worn through the soles before she's grown out of them and before we'd have bought new ones. My daughter doesn't walk to school (5minute walk to and from a bus stop) and only wears them to walk around during the school day). The shoes should withstand more than this - and no, not got the receipt, so can't take them back. Would if I could (but I see there are no H fitting in her size left either!) Come on Clarks - they look nice, leather is soft, but soles are letting your children's shoes down.

  • 1 stars out of 5Should have learnt first time around...

    My daughter has worn them to school for 6 days and the sole has already started to come away at the front. I knew from previous experience of these shoes with my other daughter that the quality & robustness was terrible, but My tall 9 year old has size 4.5 wide feet & these shoes were they only ones available that fitted & were of a semi decent style...Clarks your styling in recent years is shocking! As a desperate shoe shopping mother, even I wasn't prepared to make my daughter wear shoes that even her great grand mother wouldn't!! Your quality of school shoes has also deteriorated.

  • 2 stars out of 5Poor quality

    Michelle from birchington

    I purchased these for my daughter 8 for start of school in September.She was very pleased with the way they looked and fitted. I am disappointed to report that after 2 weeks the front of the shoe was starting to come away. She begged me not to return them. The shoe is not very sturdy, I do not think ideally suited for daily school wear. Now in mid october, a big chunk is missing from front of shoe and feel will shortly need replacing as water will leak in. This is not the quality I have come to expect from a Clarks shoe, I will not buy this style again, but will buy from Clarks again as this has never happened before.

  • 1 stars out of 5POOR QUALITY

    Elizabeth, hornchurch

    I bought these shoes for my 6 years old at the start of term Sept 2012. These shoes looked lovely for about 4 weeks, then fell apart, the toe section of the shoe is worn to a very thin thread, the heel and remained of the sole is also thin, and practically unwearable. I am very dissatified as I always believe that you pay for what you get. In this instance, I have not. She will certainly need new shoes to start back after Oct half term. That can not be right. I worked it out that the shoes have cost me £5.14 a week. 7 weeks of use!

    Bought these shoes in August ready for the new school year. It is not yet autumn half term and the soles are completely worn, the heels have worn on one side. Our walk to school is approx 10 mins so not far! My daughter's best friend also has a pair, hers are in an even worse state. The leather is very thin, the sole ridiculously thin. I really wish I hadn't bought these shoes!

    Philippa, matlock

    Bought these for my 12 yr who wears a size 7. The range is quite limited from Clark's when you have larger feet. She has worn them since Sept to school and the sole is coming away from the toes and feels very thin. I did think it felt thinnish to begin with so had my doubts but they are not wearing well after these few months. The way they are going they won't last long. Very disappointed. I wouldn't recommend.

  • 1 stars out of 5Look nice, not fit for purpose.

    liz, liverpool

    I don't know what's happened to Clarks shoes, as the last few pairs my daughter has had barely lasted a term. Look worn, sole starts coming away at front of shoe after hardly any use. Leather scuffs and actually starts coming away usually. I stopped using Clarks altogether for my daughter as so disappointed with the quality of school shoes despite price tag. These were a present from grandma who still thinks they are same quality we had growing up. I'll go back to start-rite and kickers seeing as how Clarks don't listen to what their customers are telling them and just post a "we are happy with the design and quality of our shoes" generic comment on all negative feedback. You are losing a loyal customer base left right and centre- such a shame. Feedback from Clarks: Thanks for your comments. We are sorry to hear that you are disappointed with your purchase.

    Purchased these today for my 8 year old, but after looking at them more closely and reading all the appalling reviews I may return them. Instead of giving a standardised response to customer reviews, Clarks really need to take on board what customers are saying and take action to improve/change the shoe and not keep churning out a design that doesn't seem fit for purpose. Saying that most of the shoes have poor reviews! Disappointing.

  • 4 stars out of 5Great shoe - appauling laces

    This was my first purchase from Clarks since a very poor experience when my daughter was a toddler and she was badly fitted (she had tiny feet and the store didn't have small enough, but rather than being honest they tried to sell me shoes I didn't like in completely different sizes from what they had measured!) However, 9 years has passed and I used a different store. My daughter being in the upper years of primary was convinced that Mary Jane style shoes were too babyish now, she had decided brogues were the only appropriate shoe! They latest the entire school year and my daughter is very clumsy and falls over at least once a week and can't walk calmly ever!, However the laces were short and even in a double knot kept coming untied. I would purchase these again, but would buy longer laces in a matt type finish so they don't keep coming united.

    Mary

    I bought a pair of Erica school shoes for my grand-daughter, ready for the new school year. The soles of both shoes started to come away at the toes after a couple of weeks. The sole was very soft and by the time I took them back after a month the heels were already wearing down. The stitching on top was also unravelling. Last year the school shoes lasted for an entire year so it is not that Alex is heavy on shoes. These shoes may be suitable for occasional wear but they are not suitable for school.

    Same as all the other reviews - these shoes are a big disappointment. I bought my daughter a pair new in sept & didn't even get 1 term out of them - not even 15 weeks. The sole is far too thin, they were coming away from the shoes & letting in water. She only ever wore them for school, not outside and so they clearly can't withstand the basis wear & tear of a school day. Have always bought Clarks shoes & these are the worst I have ever had.

    I wish I had thought to read the reviews of these shoes before I bought them for my nine year old daughter, who was desperate for them for school. I bought them at the beginning of September and by the middle of November both shoes were coming apart at the toe and the sole under the ball of the foot had worn VERY thin. We too have had problems with the laces coming undone.

    I reluctantly bought these shoes for my daughter as they were the only style on offer that really suited a trouser wearer and protected the upper foot against the winter weather. From the start I was not impressed with the depth of the sole/heal and said they would not withstand playground games. They only just survived a term which I find extremely disappointing. Judging by other reviews I say - don't buy them! Feedback from Clarks: Thanks for leaving a review; we’re sorry to hear you’re unhappy with your purchase.

    I bought these for my daughter who is a H fitting and quite heavy on shoes. They lasted 3 months which is disappointing considering the price. However, what I fail to understand is that the Della Lux, which looks very similar, has a much thicker sole but only goes up to a G fitting. Surely the wider the feet the more wear on the shoes and the greater need for more support on a wider fitting shoe! This may be a ploy to get parents to buy shoes more often - not something I am keen to do at these prices. Where has common sense and qaulity gone?
