  • 2 stars out of 5Very uncomfortable - blisters!

    Deborah from bridgwater

    I love the look of these shoes, and the fact that they have a good sturdy sole without being clumpy, but just wearing them for work gives me blisters on my heels every time, even when worn with socks. They are no good for walking, and the blisters means I can't wear them every day. I am persevering, in the hope they will soften up in time but I'm not very happy.

    Clare from rhyl

    I bought these shoes as I desperately needed new ones for work. They are a very comfortable shoe - ideal if you are on your feet in the office all day, practical and great value for money. Highly recommended!

  • 5 stars out of 5Perfect Fit


    I went to my local shop to purchase some black flat shoes and tried the black leather version of these shoes. I really wanted the Patient ones, but they were not in stock in my size. The assistant said that they could deliver them to my home free of charge and I said that would be great. They arrived within 2 days and fit perfectly. One very satisfied customer.

  • 3 stars out of 5Not What I'd Expect From Clarks!

    I am usually size 6 in clarks shoes and have always loved the fact that their shoes are so comfy. However, I had to buy a size 6.5 in these shoes and then I found I was getting blisters straight away. I thought they were going to be so comfy to wear. I will persist in the hope they will break in, but I am extremely disappointed in these clarks shoes. I had already worn them outside before they started to cripple my feet so I couldn't take them back. Having said this, I do love the style. Feedback from Clarks: We do try to be as consistent as possible in terms of sizes and width fittings and all our styles are fit tested as part of our product development process.  However we do find that styles will fit differently due to the differences in design and that a customer may need to select a bigger or smaller size in order to find the most suitable fit.

  • 4 stars out of 5Lovely Comfy Work Shoes

    Helen, bradford

    I bought these to wear for work, before the bad weather starts and I have to get my boots out. They are sturdy little pumps. First couple of times I wore them they hurt a bit but after that they have been lovely and comfortable. I love the patent with the plain leather strap across. The inside is really soft and feels nice when you first put the shoes on.

  • 4 stars out of 5Great shoes - so comfortable

    Karen, ashford

    This must be about the 4th pair of these shoes I've bought my daughter. She's on her feet all day and says they are so comfy. Never had any blisters and wears them every day. Her only gripe is that the inner sole wears away quite quickly. Apart from that they are great value for money.

    Aukje from york

    I ordered these online after seeing them in the shop- but they didn't have my size. They came quickly and I was impressed with how easy and efficient it was-(we had a week earlier ordered schoolshoes for my son, also very good) these are great shoes- I have been wearing them for work- they look really smart and are very comfortable for walking- into town for lunch so need for those trainers under your desk!

  • 5 stars out of 5Comfy and stylish flats for work.

    Andrea, salford

    This is a nice pair of flat shoes, stylish and very comfortable. I bought these for work, size 5.5 fits me perfect. They don't need polishing and stay shiny, I highly recommend these as a low maintenance flats that can be worn to work too.

  • 5 stars out of 5Comfortable

    Pamela from kettering

    These shoes are very comfortable, probably due to that they have a cushion insole, I wear them with jeans, but they will go with trousers or skirts. Well done Clarks for such comfortable and fashionable shoes.

  • 2 stars out of 5Beautiful uncomfortable shoes

    Helena, manchester

    I bought these in wide fit and they are not wide enough. I've worn wide (E) fit from Clarks before and some other brands and they are much wider than these. They are very stylish and I wish I could wear them, but after 5 mins my feet are in pain. Feedback from Clarks: Thank you for leaving a review and we're sorry to hear you didn't find these shoes comfy. We know that everyone's feet are different and so do our best to provide shoes to suit all shapes and sizes but in the end comfort is a personal thing. We value all our customer feedback so thank you for your comments which have been fed back to our team.

  • 3 stars out of 5At least a size too small

    Alice, kingsbridge

    I ordered 2 pairs of shoes in a size 9. Unfortunately, I didn't like the other pair and these shoes were at least a size too small even in the wide fit. The difference between the 2 pairs was so marked I thought they must have been incorrectly labelled so I ordered another pair, but they were just as small. Good quality and nice design, just a shame they were so small! Feedback from Clarks: Thanks for leaving a review; we’re sorry to hear you’re unhappy with your purchase. We value all our customer feedback so thank you for your comments which have been fed back to our team.
