There is absolutely no way these are "wide". I have been buying Clarks shoes for 10 years and I want to like these, but honestly I am left shaking my head wondering what they were thinking when they designed these. In the photo you can see my old pair and the new ones they sent. If the new ones hadn't had a 9 1/2 wide sticker I would have been certain they sent the wrong thing.
Honestly the quality has come down a lot too over the last 10 years. This is my 3rd pair, which speaks to how well the shoes are made, but each pair has been poorer quality than the last. Probably better than some, but not what I had grown to expect from Clarks.
