How are the Dune ones different from the Clarks ones?confused

They look fashionable to me.

I think the style is fashionable but the Clarks' interpretation of it, as almost always, just a bit 'off'. But then I do admit I might have a prejudice against Clarks.

Yes, they are fashionable- spotted three pairs in Shoreditch this morning grin

Teamed with rolled up chinos and drapey t shirts.

I'm afraid I'm totally of the school of Clarks never really getting things right. Not a fan at all. Don't think they're stylish but then again nor are Nine West IMO.

I have a similar pair from Clarks and they are oh so comfortable.

I have had lots of nice comments from friends about them, even a friend who frequents the likes of Nine West for her ones and twos said she thought they were "impressive".

I do have quite deformed, mutant feet because of my bunions but I still feel I have the right to look as stylish as everyone elsegrin

I prefer the look of the Dune ones, but I have bought two pairs of shoes from Dune and their sizing seems a bit hit and miss and, as beautiful as my shoes are, they are very uncomfortable.

Definitely try them on, rather than get them over the internet.

How about these? Similar but nicer I reckon.

I like them.

They are fashionable I guess. Too high for me though?

I see you are on a US site? There seem to different styles to the UK website?

FrancesFarmer Thu 20-Jun-13 18:17:46

They're not cool, I'll put it that way.

finlaysmum12 Thu 20-Jun-13 18:05:36

i like them too, go for it if you want to!

The clarks ones are nice, I like them.
Not much difference to the dune ones. The dune ones look uncomfortable.

If you like them why does it matter what strangers think of them?

They're really not that different to the Steve Madden ones but look more comfortable. My only issue would be that Clarks tend to do very narrow fittings, but apart from that, I think they are nice sandals.

TheCraicDealer Thu 20-Jun-13 16:41:27

I like them, OP. If you do you should get them.

Clarks have a bad rep, but the amount of times people have said to me, "Oh my god, love your shoes!" and then turn their nose up when I respond, "Thanks, they're from Clarks" is unreal.

They are in fashion - if you look at what's in the shops at the moment, you'll find loads of wedge heel sandals. Loads with raffia details, some with fabric details and in shapes like that one.

Be sure you can walk in them though - I've seen several young women stomping around in that kind of sandal, and it just looks awful.

bebemad Thu 20-Jun-13 16:29:47

ok thanks for your opinions back to the drawing board!

daftdame Thu 20-Jun-13 16:18:57

I think they're fine. Can't see that they're that different from the Dune ones to be honest. In my opinion they are not WOW shoes, but I'd probably have to see them on....

SanityClause Thu 20-Jun-13 16:13:03

They're horrid.

But Clarks usually are. They're never seem to get it quite right, somehow.

What about these?

Keztrel Thu 20-Jun-13 16:10:34

Not really, I'd avoid Clarks if you're after fashion and try somewhere like Zara, they usually have lovely sandals.

MrsLettuce Thu 20-Jun-13 16:07:00

Fashionable? Maybe, maybe not. They certainly aren't stylish, IMHO.

bebemad Thu 20-Jun-13 15:30:14

I'm not great with fashion but going away soon and want to try and look more fashionable i found these wedges and like them what do you think are they ok?
