Anyone else addicted to these? I bought a pair 3 yrs. ago and now am always on the scout for other pairs to add. I love their comfort and the styles. I could buy 4-5 pairs a month if I had the dough. Hehe.

I find them comfy, but only about 10% match my personal style. I go in and take a peak every few months to see if anything catches my eye.

Unfortunately, the comfort shoes are generally not "edgy" enough for me.

I love them too! As a matter of fact, I have been wearing a pair of naturalizers for errands around the house for a few weeks now and I happened to pull out a pair of Clark's the other day to go with what I was wearing. I was surprised how much better they felt at the end of the day! I also appreciate how consistent the sizing is. I can order them online with confidence and be pretty much assured they will fit. Teva is another brand that I find extremely comfortable but sizing is sometimes as issue.

I like Clark's too. I've had the same pair of back slip on's for years. I check the styles...but I vear toward the classic styes, rather than the fad styles....I'm hoping to find something that I like this next season. I do agree, they are very comfortable.

I'm ticked with Clark. I grew up wearing them and they were such great shoes. They were very expensive also. I remember my parents buying me a pair in 1964 and they cost $60 at the time. That is probably equal to $300 or so today. My gripe with Clark's is that these great shoes were always European made and now they are made in some Asian sweatshop. I try not to buy from these 3rd world countries, especially China so Clark's is out of luck with me.

Lucknow, I did not know they are made in China. Are all their factories in China?

I have difficult feet to fit. I've had good luck with Clarks recently. The styles wouldn't be my first choice but they're much better than most other shoes that actually fit me and are comfortable all day. No complaints here.

I have yet to see a pair of Clark's that doesn't look "grannyish". I'll pass.

"Style before comfort" is my fashion mantra.

How funny this topic came up. While I was out, a woman received loads of compliments on her shoes. She was raving about how comfy they were. They were clarks. :P

I did get some awesome kinda rocker/western booties a few year ago. They were uber trendy for Clarks. They served me well, but I totally wrecked/scuffed them with too much walking. The only clarks I have left are some sandal wedges right now. And another pair of booties. These are pretty cute, small brass studs. Totally on trend without going too crazy.

If that works for more power to you. My foot won't even go into what most would consider stylish,. I watched my mother and grandmother recover from painful foot surgeries -somewhat due to heredity and somewhat due to insistance of "fashionable" shoes. The shoes they had to wear post surgery.. *forever* make my Clarks appear very stylish LOL.
