    Well some have said that, all I know is that the older I get the more I crave comfortable shoes. I have recently ordered a pair of these chukkas and am waiting for them to arrive. I will post a heads up when I get them. And I'm wondering if anyone else has tried them. Here is a link: http://www.selectism.com/2015/07/06/astorflex-footwear/

    The sizing is super looney.

    I'm a 10D/C.

    I got a 9 and it fits like an 11D.

    After wearing for about a week, this is a bit of an exaggeration.

    I'm a 10D/C and they fit probably like a 10.5D.

    They're still comfortable and don't slip very much. Everything else about the shoe feels like a better quality and sturdier Clarks. I don't know if I'd pay as much as I did for the Chelsea again, but it's worth knowing.

    I recently order some of these and absolutely love them. They did say if I were between sizes to go down. So I ordered an 11 and they fight great! I am trying to figure out how to care for them, as they seem to spot up went they get wet. Anyone have any suggestions?

    If you've been wearing them without cleaning them since your post, get them cleaned and use a suede water protector. Then use a fine metal brush (designed specifically for suede) to brush out scuffs/light stains.
