Clarks is a reputable company that’s been making high-quality shoes for decades. The Wave Trek Sneaker are an excellent example of the type of quality and comfort we’ve come to expect from Clarks. If you need no-nonsense shoes that can be worn for 12 hours or more without causing foot fatigue, these are the right choice.
Made from high-quality leather, these shoes are amazingly durable and comfortable. Our research has shown they last for more than two years for most users. They have a stylish casual design and are perfect for walking, running or standing on your feet for longer periods of time.
But that’s not all:
There are many features which make these shoes excellent for both inside and outside work. Namely, they are completely waterproof, so you can wear them in all types of weather conditions. However, this comes with a small downside – since they’re water resistant, these shoes don’t have a cooling system, so they can run a bit hot. We’ve found this doesn’t disturb most users, but it’s still worth mentioning.
These Wave Trek sneakers also have a durable rubber sole. The sole is slip resistant and oil resistant, and features a rocker as well. This makes walking in these shoes a breeze, because they provide support in all the right places. The sole is also shock absorbent, which is great for people who have issues with their joints.
Here’s where it gets good:
The padded tongue and collar, other than adding to the comfort of the shoes, also provide excellent ankle support. But the shoes still give you excellent freedom of motion. The lace-up closure system enables a custom fit. Keep in mind, though, that this is a leather shoe, which means it’ll need time to loosen up a bit after the first time you put it on.
As far as the inside of the shoe is concerned, it has an insole that provides cushioning and an OrthoLite footbed, which is durable and breathable. The footbed and insoles also manage moisture and aid in containing odors.
The insole is removable, which means if you need extra cushioning, you can always purchase additional insoles and place them in your shoes. We’ve found WERNIES Comfort Neutral Arch Support Insoles and Icebug Slim Low Volume Insoles are among the most popular for arch support and stability, respectively.
Wondering what real women say about these shoes? Darlene is happy with them, which says a lot since her job requires her to stand and walk around pretty much all day long. She says the sneakers are super comfortable and feel good even after a day’s work. What made her decide to buy another pair was the fact that the shoes go with every outfit and look simply adorable.
Now get this:
There are, of course, unhappy users of this particular model. Wanda is among those who’ve ended up returning the shoes almost immediately after their arrival. She says it’s mostly because of the toe box, which is too cramped for her feet. She also didn’t like the overall fit of the shoe and decided against wearing them.
