What do you guys think of the Metro Grooves? (TTYTT, I wouldn't have given Clarks a second glance until you guys expressed so much appreciation. I'm going to go try some on, but just looking at photos I'm worried the Desert Boots are a little clunky and I can't stand the toe stitching on the Treks or Wallabees.) PS: Just noticed they're like double the price of the Desert Boots - WTF Clarks?!

The Metro Grooves are busy and ugly. Desert Boots are not even remotely clunky. They're extremely neutral and low key.

seconded. those boots are an abomination. treks are the antithesis of clunky. the only acceptable clarks are the OGs: wallabees (high or low, but not wallaroo) desert treks desert khans desert boots hope that helps!!!

If you google "wallabees," this is the #1 site: http://www.blairmag.com/blair3/clarks/clarks.html j/k j/k lolz lolz Personally, I'm not a big fan as I don't like the aesthetics of the shoe.

I assume the perforated Khans are over the top?

So an update... I bought the Wallys, but later returned them. They were quite comfortable, and looked fine, but didn't quite go with slimmer fitting jeans. They needed a wider straight, or boot-cut to look good IMO. Also, the construction felt a little cheap. I could easily see the stitching coming apart, or the sole falling off after a few months.

I know this is a bit late, but in terms of construction, I had a pair of Wallabees I got in the 9th grade and wore them almost every day for 6 years, and never had any issues in regards to durability

I love Clarks but not the Wallabee.

I don't know, generally I feel that the Wallabees are strange looking. They kind of remind me of an Indian reservation or something. I see a lot of bro's wearing them these days with popped polo collars, oaklies on drinking Natty Ice. I think that may have ruined it for me. I tried to get into Clarks too, they just come across as too old man, and designed more for comfort than style in my opinion. I feel there are far better looking shoes in the same price range.

yea im yay. i bought a pair about three years ago, and although they dont look good with everything, when they do look good, they look fucking good. they are also hands down the most comforatable shoes ive ever owned, and have just looked better and better with age. btw i have the brown leather lows.

So the real reason I was asking about the perforated Khans is that I'm considering some sand-colour Clarks as a more substantial alternative to flip-flops. Boots look good, but the extra skin coverage generally makes them hotter. Do you guys wear them year-round? If so, how do they feel compared to sneakers or sandals in the heat?
