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.
Do you like a lower heel while you are at work? There are plenty of Clarks shoes for women that will work with your business attire. Take a close look at the Neenah. This simple slip-on design includes a slightly pointed toe that provides a timeless look. There is just enough heel to please those who prefer to stay away from high heels but don’t like the idea of spending the day in flats.
Reiker black leather Victorian-style low heel booties with side zip and cute button accent. Marked a 39 which translates to an 8.5. Condition is new without box or tags. Some wear (nearly invisible scratches, dust, etc.) from storage and transport. These booties have not been worn outside. Lovely shoes! Comfortable 2 inch heel and soft leather. Soft gray flannel insole. Terrific quality.
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.
All shoes from Clarks provide a distinctive look and a wide range of flexibility. The designs of each piece of footwear include classic looks for those who want something that feels timeless to modern designs that represent the latest in fashion trends. These shoes are all crafted using natural materials, so you can help the environment at the same time you care for your feet.
