  • 5 stars out of 5Ultra smart comfort.

    MICK, coventry

    I bought these shoes as part of my outfit for my daughter's wedding. I was very pleased with their appearance, and they fitted perfectly. They were very comfortable first time on, but I didn,t wear them for long until I went to be measured for my suit. They were so comfortable that I wore them for most of the day!

  • 5 stars out of 5They may seem pricey but they're totally worth it.

    DANIEL, maidstone

    I bought my pair a little over a year ago and I have to say they are still going strong and totally comfortable. There is no need to think about breaking them in as they are comfortable from the get go. Even the grip is fantastic as I work in a modern office in London with ceramic floors which you can slip and slide on using normal leather soles. I would definitely buy a second pair when these wear out but I think that will be some time off because they still look pretty good to me. Definitely worth every penny..

  • 5 stars out of 5Superb quality, style and fit

    I have short wide feet with a moderately high instep. To get shoes that fit the width and accomodate the instep, I often have to buy shoes sized larger than required which fit like canoes! After despairing with other retailers, I found these and they fit beatifully, great qualty and looks, and so comfertable. Also a size and half smaller than those that I have had to buy from others. Great value also. Couldn't be more pleased. Thanks Clarks.

  • 5 stars out of 5So comfortable!

    Peter, stockbridge

    Bought these shoes in the wide fitting and they are not only extremely smart, they are wonderfully comfortable. The only problem I had was that I ordered a Size 9 (my usual size) and they were incredibly large. Changed them for a Size 8 at my local store and they fit perfectly. 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.

  • 5 stars out of 5Size 13, extra wide, brogues!! Delighted!!!

    It is so hard to find size 13, extra wide, smart shoes, and I couldn't believe my luck when I found these in the Trafford Centre yesterday! I had always been told that Clarks only went up to size 12, so I hope size 13 will be a regular item now, as you will have gained a customer for life if it is! Love these shoes! So comfortable, the extra width is fantastic and they look brilliant with a dark suit. Thank you Clarks!

  • 5 stars out of 5Review of Dorset Limit Shoes

    Stephen, farnham

    I received them today and I'm very pleased with the quality of the product. Good looking, well made and very comfortable. Could have been a bit quicker with delivery. It would be useful to have more information on the web site about the cushioned sole which is a must for a big bloke.

  • 5 stars out of 5Really comfortable on first wear

    David, new malden

    Bought these with another pair of Dorset shoes to take advantage of Clarks 20% offer. They were to replace two pairs of 7 year old Clarks City Way shoes of similar design and specification. These were used at least once per week and other than the back of the shoe wearing down where still comfortable and useable. These are even more comfortable from first wear. The new cushioning feels great and I know the combination of a leather and man made sole lasts for years. If they last like the City Way pairs they work out at £10 per pair per year!

    Just what you expect from Clarks, great comfortable good looking shoes. But you need to order a size smaller than usual.

  • 5 stars out of 5Hooray For H Fitting Brogues

    Marilyn, gobowen

    Earlier this year I requested Clarks consider making a H fitting Brogue for men. Dorset Limit is just the ticket. I purchased these as a gift for my husband, who only wears Clarks shoes as no other company make a shoe wide enough for his broad foot. He is delighted to be able to wear a shoe that is fashionable and smart looking good with Chinos or a suit. He tells me they are superbly comfortable. He wore them all day without any "new shoe" problems.I have now ordered a pair for him in Black. I do hope that Clarks will extend the range of more fashionable men's wide fitting shoes from the functional to the smarter look for the Guys who like my husband require the H fitting. 5* Clarks Thank you Marilyn.

  • 3 stars out of 5'Hairsheep' Lining Material No Good

    I think this ‘Hairsheep’ lining material is supposed to be natural but it certainly does not feel like it. Very uncomfortable as it does not let your feet breathe and the shoes start to squeak if your feet become moist. Clarks shoes of this price used to have leather linings. Whether this was an ill-fated attempt to increase their comfort or alterntively to decrease their production costs, I am afraid that after 45 years, I am now looking to other brands. 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.

  • 5 stars out of 5Great fit and look good for business.

    In a constant search for good fitting shoes I have now found these. A lovely wide fit, comfortable and business like. Only trouble is could do with even more choice like a wide strap over would be good.

  • 5 stars out of 5Granted me comfort

    Joanne, swindon

    Best pair of shoes I have worn for many years. I have a particular requirement that means I can't have my toes compacted too much otherwise it comes unbearable. In the past, I've discarded footwear after a few days and resorted to over-sized and unattractive shoes yet these fit like slippers! The Bath store measured me properly and after a few days at work with these, I can rate these very highly. Excellent finish and clearly made well. I strongly believe there should be a better range of wider fitting shoes out there. I hasten to add, I've tolerated size 10 shoes for years yet now Clarks have granted me comfort, THANKYOU!!!

  • 4 stars out of 5Excellent shoes but...

    This is a classic. I used to just pop into the shop and ask for the same shoes. Till Clarks decided to go on the cheap. The original one I believe was called Dino Limit. I was told that was changed to this one. I tried it. I realised that the leather is thinner, doesn't maintain its shape as well as the old one in addition to the shoes has a vertical join in the leather on the side and a cheap neoprene insole. Comfort wise... More or less the same as the old one but the cheap insole... Come on... This is the same cheap insole for all the cheaper product lines. All round if you haven't tried its first addition you will be happy with this one. Feedback from Clarks: Thanks for leaving a review; we’re sorry to hear you’re unhappy with your purchase.

    John, leeds

    I received my shoes within the stipulated time period for standard delivery. Packaging was excellent and the goods in perfect condition. Never before has a pair of shoes fitted my feet so well, total comfort and I only wish that there was more choice in H fitting or casual shoes. Thank you.

  • 5 stars out of 5Clarks Dorset range.

    Having spent hours walking the length of Oxford & Regent Street recently looking for decent smart shoe, I settled on a pair each of Dorset Boss & Limit shoes and have found them to be everything I was looking for. Supple leather, exceptionally comfortable cushioning and a hard wearing heel/sole unit. Visually, they are stylish and convey an air of success. I am a size 7 normally, but in these, I was a 6H and they are without question the best shoes I have worn. My thanks too go to the staff in the Oxford St branch for their professional approach in ensuring I obtained the perfect product. Well done Clarks!

    My husbands feet have changed and he now finds he needs a wide fitting. This style is a great fit..The assistant at the Hereford store was so helpful and patient. The name on the receipt is Christianne-assistant no.12. Definitely a good experience all round.

  • 5 stars out of 5Best shoes ever


    I bought these shoes last week I was served by a lovely young lady,Tasnim from marble arch. She had excellent knowledge about the shoes she told me about the comfort of the shoe. I wore them the whole week without any problems. The lady was very pleasant and patient. 5 stars for customer service, will definitely go back again.

    These combine comfort and style at an excellent price. I wish I had found them earlier in my business career - I would have spent less, looked better and been more comfortable!
