Rated 4 out of 5 by Dirtyfeet perfect except for one thing
These boots are just what I wanted in a simple, utilitarian style with a low heel and short upper. The quality of the leather and sewing is superb and the dual material soles are excellent. I'm trying hard to break in the one flaw....the front top of the boot digs into my lower shin when I flex my foot. After a day of wearing there were bruises on both shins. The leather is so stiff and strong, usually a plus, that it doesn't bend forward with each stride. The elastic vent helps a little, but I think I'll have to wear them with the zipper down to ease the pressure. I'm going to try adding a cuff of sheepskin to the top edge of the boot to buffer the pressing. I love the way Clark's fit my foot and the consistent high quality, so I'll try to make these work and would buy Clark's again.
