I've been wearing Clarks Desert Boots for years. I'm familiar with the quirks. However the quality has taken a dive. I bought these on May 1, 2018 and it's now July 7, 2018. The boots are done. Like, ready for the trash. The soles are completely shot. They have completely worn down. In fact, they showed noticeable wear after just one use. Yes, I walk around in them however I live in the city and that's what people do.
I usually wear 10-10.5 shoes (US). After reading reviews, I bought a 9.5, as many people say that these boots fit large. They fit perfectly for the first few hours, then became to big and caused bleeding on my heels. I exchanged them for 9 ( a full size down). Don't get discouraged; it took at least 2 weeks of mild pain until the leather stretched. Now, they are extremely comfortable. My recommendation is to go one full size down. They look good, timeless, and solid. I hope to wear them for many years.

Combining handsome design, comfort and durability, our leather boots for men run the gamut from classic chukka boots to modern combat boots and edgy sneaker-boot styles. Looking for dress boots? Our lineup includes refined lace-ups, stylish wingtip boots, elegant suede designs and versatile Chelsea boots. Timberland and Sperry are among Nordstrom's premier brands specializing in weather-ready winter boots and other great-looking waterproof styles. And our selection doesn't stop there. You can even count on us for beautifully crafted, traditionally detailed cowboy boots.
I have also noticed that the non-removable insole has lots of lumps and inconsistencies. The left one hurts the bottom of my foot around the heel because there is a large bump. The right has a bump in the forefoot area which gives me blisters. As well, even after several wears and significant break in time, these shoes are basically unwearable without moleskin on both heels.
