Size 5.

Not the linnet ones, the original kestral soar ones, any colour really


surely a shop somewhere has got some old stock in the bacl of a cupboard somewhere?

I got a pair in summer 2012, just before they discontinued them. very comfy, although I don't get the wear out of them I should (I mostly wear a pair of Sperry strappy t-bar sandals when there's a hint of sun). You're making me feel guilty! They had these heeled versions called Seren in the same colours; I keep checking eBay on the off chance someone's getting rid of a pair but no joy sad I don't know why the hell Clarks got rid of these great classic styles and replaced them with fucking moon boot sandals angry

there is a clarks outlet in hatfield is you're anywhere near there..

TheCraicDealer Sun 12-Apr-15 22:07:17

These Birkenstocks are similar.

Hi everyone, thanks for the replies!

All the suggestions are great,but they're just not the kestral soar...

Craic...get them on ebay you'll make a fortune!

tethersend Sun 12-Apr-15 22:56:35

TheCraic, I just gave a pair of Serin sandals away as I never wore them sad, bugger.

We should have a thread to check if anyone wants stuff before we get rid grin

Joyce, I will hunt for the sandals because you have the greatest MN nickname grin (no luck yet, though...)

JoyceDivision Sun 12-Apr-15 22:59:32

Tethersend, whenever I see you on a s&b thread it usually ends well, so I am thrilled you're taking up the challenge!! grin

BikeRunSki Sun 12-Apr-15 23:08:10

Maybe ask your Vicar wink?

tethersend Sun 12-Apr-15 23:11:52

Uh-oh, no pressure grin


JoyceDivision Sun 12-Apr-15 23:13:23

My Vicar? Eh? Sorry, I might be a bit thick, I don't get it!

tethersend Sun 12-Apr-15 23:15:37

Or these?

JoyceDivision Sun 12-Apr-15 23:18:44

um, no.... they have that wierdy heel thing, not uber flat with teh originals sole


JoyceDivision Sun 12-Apr-15 23:19:09

blush ffs!!

tethersend Sun 12-Apr-15 23:20:12

The blue ones too?

I need to look at the originals again grin

JoyceDivision Sun 12-Apr-15 23:27:30

blue ones look like they are gpoing into non ironic nanna territory.

I am v v fussy.Basically, i luff the kestral soars, and trying to get a lokky likey is a bit like asking for gearge clooney but getting this: nearly, but not quite

Pumpkinette Mon 13-Apr-15 01:35:27

eBay in blue but 5.5 not a 5.

BikeRunSki Mon 13-Apr-15 02:54:48

Re: vicars - we used to call that style of sandals "vicar shoes" at school. Sorry, but tenuous.

tethersend Mon 13-Apr-15 09:33:55

Am coming up with nothing.

Do you have a saved EBay search? Make sure you save not just 'Kestral(sic) soar', but 'Clarks original sandal' and 'Clarks Buckle sandal' saved.


(But it might take a while...)

bettykt Mon 13-Apr-15 10:16:19

Not being very helpful here but I have both of these sandals, my Soars are a size 4 and are very well used, haven't worn the Serens much but I think I will now grin hope you find a a pair soon.

This is a bit of a longshot BUT -
There's a small local chain (I think 3 or 4 branches) of old fashioned, traditional shoe shops around Huddersfield, called Wagstaffs. The Kestral Soar is exactly the kind of shoe they get. I can't imagine that their turnover on adult shoes is super speedy. Might be worth googling and giving them a ring. Branches are in Holmfirth, Meltham
and Honley. Possibly another one. Sadly they don't have a website.

I googles these as I didnt know what you were looking for
we used to call these jesus sandlas when I was young grin
and when I googled that instead I found quite a lot of very very similar ones
just a suggestion

Have you tried calling the outlet store in Street, Somerset?
