Classic women's shoes with the perfect mid-height heel.

  • 5 stars out of 5The staple court

    Laura, broadway

    Arista Abe are a staple shoe for any wardrobe. I have bought four pairs of this shoe now in all colours. Ideal in black for any work outfit, nude were a perfect wedding shoe and the new colour is great to dress up the skinny jean for summer. Comfortable shoes that can be worn all day and night for that 'one drink' after work that turns into a 2am club!! I challenge anyone to find a reason NOT to buy these shoes, just look at the price!!!

  • 5 stars out of 5The perfect court

    Dorcas, reading

    I have always bought Clarks shoes and look forward to the new season court shoe styles. As always they are stylish and amazingly comfortable. I am on my feet most of the day and these cope admirably, just the right height of heel to enhance your legs without going to great heights! I love them and bought a pair in each colour, they are fab you will be thrilled with these!

    Ann, arbroath

    Bought black patent pair for a dinner - so dressy, comfortable and perfect heel height. Just wish there were other colours, navy perhaps?

  • 5 stars out of 5Smart and comfy.

    Gwyneth, wilmslow

    I know it depends on the shape of your foot, but these do feel very forgiving for patent leather and they look incredibly smart and they are very comfortable. I really think it is a style that Clarks should keep from season to season and just change the colour as it is a classic.

  • 5 stars out of 5Shoes from heaven.

    Denisa, croydon

    I find it incredibly hard to find well fitted shoes. My feet are a normal 5.5 - 6 size, however, they are rather wide in the front and normal in the middle and towards the back. The standard wide fit are pinching my toes and are massive in the back and sides. However, these shoes fit like a glove. I buy them in a 'normal' width in size 5.5. I am so ecstatic I feel like buying 10 pairs now incase they stop making them. Have had them in black leather, black patent leather and nude patent leather. Can't wait to try the pink patent leather next!

  • 5 stars out of 5Perfect height

    Jacqueline, aylesbury

    Already have these in nude. They are so comfy, and the height is perfect. Decided to get them in black as well. Great for going out. They look good with a dress, and fab with jeans.

  • 5 stars out of 5Lovely classy shoes

    , leeds

    Bought these online, delivery was a little late but received an email to advise, they came a day or 2 later. At first glance thought they looked narrow, I purchased the wider fit, but feet slide into the shoes no trouble, in fact they are a little large (size8) although I think the next size down would have been too tight. I will put heel grips in. I don't really wear heels that much nowadays, these have been purchased for an event and look fab. Lovely shoes.

  • 5 stars out of 5Love these shoes

    Pauline, glasgow

    Finally a smart pair of heels that my wide feet can cope with. Higher and narrow heel than I would usually have but so well balanced they are fine for nights out and parties.

    rebecca, bristol

    None of that wearing them in nonsense, these shoes are comfortable straight out of the box. Could not be happier with them, very practical for work and easy to wear all day.

  • 4 stars out of 5Great heel height, perfect work shoe

    CAROL, st. helens

    These have a brilliant heel height and are basically a perfect wear to work shoe, extremely similar to one with a much higher price tag from a well known store rhyming with Doden [theirs cost over £100!]. Only a standard width fitting means I went for the 4.5, it fits fine. Shame that there are so few colour options on these. I got the patent, but would have loved a black suede, or a nude option as well as at least one fashion shade - perhaps a fig purple? Feedback from Clarks: Thanks for leaving a review; we value all our customer feedback so thank you for your comments which have been fed back to our team.

  • 4 stars out of 5Good for slim feet.

    Susan, cambridge

    I am constantly searching for court shoes where my slim heel does not slip out of the back. Usually I give up and go for shoes with a strap. But these rare pair of shoes seem to keep my heel in place. Hooray! They are fairly comfy. Needed to be exceptionally comfy to get a 5 star, but good enough for a 4. Thanks Clarks.

  • 5 stars out of 5Feel like slippers

    Carolyn, reading

    Well I feel I've finally come home. These look great and feel like slippers. I have looked in the shops for so long for a good fit and style and finally took a chance on buying online, taking account of all the good testaments to these. Wow, fantastic. I am over the moon. Please don't stop making these Clarks!

  • 1 stars out of 5Disappointed...Norwich.

    I bought these shoes a few weeks before Christmas... @ £45 they scuffed after a few weeks...They are stylish and comfortable, but certainly not fit for purpose!! I certainly wouldn't recommend...A real disappointment at that price😦 Feedback from Emma at 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.

    I have very painful arthritis in my big toe and finding the right shoe is an absolute nightmare however this shoe is very feminine and comfortable another colour such as nude would be good.

    These shoes are perfect for work! They come up on the roomy side so consider a slightly smaller size but they are gorgeous. Exactly what I was looking for :)

    Sandra, lymington

    I have struggled finding a pair of shes that do not rub me somehwere on my feet - until now. This shoe is soft, very comfy and cushioned, perfect heel height to wear all day and they look fantastic with anything be it skirts or trousers. Highly recommended.

    comfortable and stylish. I am generally not a fan of heels but being petite I realise there are outfits that look better with them. These shoes may change my opinion !

  • 5 stars out of 5Best Ever Courts

    Geri, maidstone

    I have struggled for years to find the perfect comfortable court shoe, and these are it. I now have 3 colours and would love to see them in black suede. For some reason these are so comfy when other Clarks courts of the same size I can barely squeeze my feet in. Please don't ever stop this classic lovely shoe.
