Arista Abe 5 (26 reviews) Black Leather Womens Smart Shoes

Classic women's shoes with the perfect mid-height heel. Elegant and simple, the court silhouette is enhanced with 7cm of everyday elevation and the smooth black leather is versatile enough to wear with anything. A great look for work or formal wear, with the added benefit of Cushion Soft layers underfoot.

    Joanne, dereham

    I bought these court shoes to go with my cabin crew uniform. They are good quality, fit well, with just the right heel height and are good value for the price. I had them delivered and the service was excellent. Thank you Clarks you just keep getting better and better!

  • 5 stars out of 5These heels are amazing!

    Sara , aylesbury

    As someone who would love to wear heels (I am 40 years old) but have the ankles of a new-born foal, I had my doubts that I would be able to walk like a lady in these BUT I CAN! These shoes look amazing, up to date, but classic at the same time, and they are oh-so comfortable, so you can walk like a lady without being crippled. These would look great with skinny jeans, skirts and dresses. Thanks Clarks.

    Lovely comfortable shoe, but for the price I was expecting at least a leather sock inside so my feet can breath. If you buy leather shoes you expect them to be leather lined too, otherwise what's the point.

  • 5 stars out of 5Really good shoe

    Marianne, reading

    I'm very happy with my purchase. I tried the shoe on in the shop but they did not have my size so I made an online order in the shop for the right size. The shoes have just arrived 2 days after. They have a really good fit and very good height for me. I bought them for work, but I think they are also going to be used outside work. Thank you Clarks, both for a really good shoe but also for excellent service in the shop.

    Trudy, burton-on-trent

    I wanted some stylish shoes, but not too high a heel - these really fit the bill! They are stylish, lovely quality, and very, very comfortable.

    Heather, sutton-in-ashfield

    Thank you so much, Clarks! These heels complete my Cruise Ship officer's uniform perfectly. They are "sensible" but also very stylish, and more importantly, comfortable enough to wear for a gruelling 10 hour shift! You saved my sole(s) :)

  • 4 stars out of 5Practical and stylish for work

    Suzanne, bristol

    Bought these for work as they are not too high. They are a bit too big for me though so need to buy an insole to stop them from slipping off my fit. Bought them on a hot summer day and now it's cold they do not fit as well. Nice style though and not too high if on your feet all day.

    Rosie , stoke-on-trent

    Arrived this morning so comfy only just taken them off! Heel height perfect and leather feels lovely. Bought several items in the last 2 weeks including the chorus voice in cobalt blue. Wonderful shoes and wonderful service. Thank you Clarks.

  • 5 stars out of 5Lovely comfy work shoes

    Elizabeth, wakefield

    Firstly Clarks - thank you for excellent delivery service - ordered Saturday, free delivery selected - arrived Monday morning! To the shoes - as others have said you can put them straight on and wear them all day! Just the ideal heel height and very comfortable! Top marks although did note the £5 price hike since the winter - hope it's not all the good reviews that is influencing your pricing regime!! But still good value for money in my eyes.

    k, cambridge

    These shoes are just what I've been looking for. I have bought them to wear for work, and they are perfect. The height is bang on, and they are so comfy. Delivery was very quick. Spent a bit more than I would have liked, but they are worth it!! Very pleased.

    Shabana , southall

    I love the fact these come in wide fitting because they feel really comfy and look great for work. I'm able to walk and stand long hours without complaining about achy feet. People get surprised when they ask me don't your feet get cramped in their and I say "no! they are really comfy."

  • 5 stars out of 5I bought two pairs of these

    Sandra, bristol

    Court shoes are timeless and a must have for my wardrobe. Thank goodness Clarks are listening to their customers. Suggestion for your next years range, I would have paid more for leather.

    Michelle, biggleswade

    Really pleased with these shoes. They're a good height and could be worn at work or on a night out. I had to get them in a half size smaller than usual. Finally found a pair of black heels that are comfortable to wear!

  • 5 stars out of 5Great in store/delivery service

    These shoes were out of stock in the black leather in store, so the assistant suggested I paid there and then but had them delivered to my home free of charge. This had the added bonus of me not having to lug them around all day as I did my shopping. The shoes arrived 3 days later. Really convenient and the assistant was extremely helpful. The leather is soft and the cushion sole is great, as I spend all day on my feet. It is really hard to find a plain, mid-height court shoe at a reasonable price, so I am very pleased with these.

  • 4 stars out of 5Good simple, comfortable shoes

    Jayne, dunfermline

    Bought these for work and they are comfortable and practical, not too high a heel so they are easy to spend a full day in whilst working and being on your feet a fair bit.

  • 4 stars out of 5Good quality but too big

    Deborah, nottingham

    I ordered these shoes using the online service (my first time!) and was very impressed with the speed and ease of service. They arrived in only 2 days and I got regular email updates. They appeared to be very good quality but unfortunately they were too big. I took them back to my local store where I received a quick and easy refund.

    Stylish, smart and allday wearable heels...from a woman who doesn't wear heels regularly. If I can't buy Clarks, I'll go without!

  • 5 stars out of 5Comfortable court shoe

    I've been looking for a long time for a plain black court shoe, to wear with a suit, that won't leave me hobbling by the end of the day. These are the ones! I was very impressed. The shop assistant gave me some insoles to stop my feet slipping forwards and I could have carried on wearing them when I got home at the end of the day.

  • 5 stars out of 5Clarks shoes at their best.

    Zoe, chippenham

    I wanted a pair of classic, plain, black, go anywhere, court shoes, with a heel that was elegant, but not too high to walk in. These are all of these things, elegant, yet robust and comfortable too. They are Clarks shoes as they always used to be, well made and well fitted.

    Sheila, ripon

    I'm so delighted with these shoes, so so comfortable, I wore them all day without tights straight from the box, I'd love them in other colours, maybe dark tan and perhaps red? Once again they came in 2 days from ordering on line, this is such an easy way to shop. Feedback from Lottie at Clarks: Thanks for leaving a review and colour suggestions. We do take all feedback on board and I have logged your comments for consideration from our design team.

    I am delighted with these shoes. After a long search I found them in the Swindon, Brunel store. The ones in stock had been stretched and a very helpful assistant explained the delivery service to me and as promised the shoes arrived within 3 days. The shoes are comfortable, good quality and smart.
