I've had mine for four years and they are on their deathbed. I've worn them 3x per week or more during the spring-autumn months. I wore them on a marathon 2-day NYC walking tour with friends and wanted to commit suicide from the pain. I wore them to Versailles and Giverny and was in pain as well though less as those were shorter days. I've talked to a friend who wears his Clark's a lot and finds they've held up better but I can't confirm.
I intend to buy Alden flex welt chukkas to replace these. If you plan to wear the macallisters as often as me and on hard surfaces, the harder crepe sole of the Clark's may be better. The Alden flex welt is probably best.
