    Here's a pic of some tan suede wallabees i got off ebay for only $29.99 (free shipping). I figured why not, being that they were only 30 bucks and in my size (6). I know a small majority find these shoes wearable, but i just thought i'd share. I like mine (though that prob doesnt mean much).

    Also sorry the picture doesnt truly represent the color, the floor is a similar color to the shoes and the lighting is bad

    I had a teacher in high school who wore wallabees everyday; he had 3 different pairs and said he's had at least one pair since he was my age. He said they were the most comfortable shoes he ever had so I went out and gave them a try. I bought the tan suede and they truly are the most comfortable shoes I ever had. I wear them every day now, but I do avoid walking in grass and stuff with them because they do get dirty. They are definitely not in style and it's only me and my teacher that wear them, but I dress very simple and don't care much on how I look. I actually got complimented by two different girls so far for having my own style of shoes. I love these shoes and will continue to wear them!

    Wallabees boots are nice as hell. For me they're a perfect blend of moccasins and chukka boots. I used to consider them a dad vibe but Breaking Bad, Raekwon, and Ghostface made me come around. I got some on Amazon for about $80, which is good considering the store in my city that was trying to flip them for over $200.

    Kind of a low-quality photo, I know...

    English made or Chinese made? The Chinese retail for about $120 but the English made ones cost more

    This is an absurdly late response. The $200 were Chinese made as well, so the mark up made even less sense. I've never seen English made Clarks in store.

    I was just strolling through a shoe shop and had a look at the Wallabees (made in China). Wow, are these things cheaply made. Low quality leather, low quality stitching, flimsy general impression. Even the laces were of the cheapest quality. Hard to believe that there are people who pay retail for them (130 €). I bought a pair of Sioux Grashopper this summer, which are in a different league in terms of quality of the upper. Unfortunately the sole starts detaching on one of them.
