Outsole

Outsole

The outsole of the CLARKS Un Coral Step flats are made out of a durable, yet lightweight rubber compound. The sole is going to allow for a decent amount of flexibility while you are walking while still being able to give you a solid and sturdy underfoot feel. The sticky rubber is going to give you a decent amount of traction and you should have no problems staying on your feet for the most part while you are out and about in these shoes. You do not want to have to worry about slipping and falling while you are on the go simply because your shoes slipped out from underneath you. They are not going to offer the same amount of traction as you might see in a pair of running shoes or hiking boots, but for a casual flat, there is plenty.
Midsole

Midsole

There is not a whole lot going on in the actual midsole of these shoes as they are thin pair of ballet flats, however, they do have a pretty decent footbed that is designed to help keep you comfortable and give you a pleasant underfoot experience while you are on the go. The CLARKS Un Coral Step dress shoes have an OrthoLite footbed to give you a decent amount of cushioning as well as a helping with moisture management inside of your shoes.

The OrthoLite footbed is eco-friendly, made using a combination of recycled rubbers and polyurethane, bringing you long-lasting cushioning that will keep your feet happy all day long. These shoes are also going to promote a healthy in-shoe environment for your feet since the cushioning features moisture-wicking technology to help ensure your feet are staying dry and therefore healthy. Any sweat from your feet will bead up and roll right off of the insole, instead of soaking in and staying wet. Since there is not a lot of moisture being trapped in the shoe you will have a lower chance of bacteria growing inside of them which can cause nasty odor, among other things. The OrthoLite footbed really does a lot to make sure your feet are both comfy and healthy.
Upper

Upper

The uppers of these shoes are made out of premium leather to not only give you a great look but to ensure your shoes are durable and comfortable as well. The leather is strong and it will take a lot to rip and tear the uppers of these shoes so you will not have to worry about that happening any time soon. The leather is super soft, to begin with, but the shoes also feature a smooth and breathable lining inside made of full-grain leather, to give you a fantastic in-shoe experience.

The breathable uppers work with the above mentioned OrthoLite footbed to make sure that your feet are not only staying dry but also staying cool. If you are on the go on a rather warm day you do not want to feel like your feet are overheating, you are going to want a shoe that will offer you a decent amount of ventilation to make sure air is flowing through your shoe and that is what you will get with these. The air flowing in will keep your feet cool and it will also help all the moisture from your sweat quickly evaporate and escape the foot chamber.
Weight

Weight

When it comes to your shoes, especially a pair that you are going to be wearing for extended periods of time, you are going to want to try to find something that is relatively lightweight. You do not want to be walking around all day with what feels like a couple of weights attached to your feet that are holding you back and slowing you down. Thankfully, you will not have that problem with the CLARKS Un Coral Step flats. They are designed to keep the weight off of them so you will have a lightweight and comfortable experience while wearing them. Customers have had no complaints when it comes to the weight of the dress flats.

These shoes are weighing in, on average, of about 8 ounces which is a pretty good weight for these kinds of shoes. Please note that this weight is based on a size 9 wide shoe and the weight will fluctuate depending on what size you get. Also, this is the weight of a single shoe, no the whole pair.
Style

Style

Customers seem to like the look of the CLARKS Un Coral Step flats. They have a very simple and classic look to them, nothing overly flashy. They have a slip-on design with some goring on the side for ease when putting them on or taking them off. The uppers are made out of premium leathers and feature a rounded toe.

There are only four color options but that does not seem to be too much of a problem for most people. You can get them in a black Nubuck and leather combination, blush pink leather, white leather, and rose gold. No matter what color you decide to go with, you will look great wearing them.
Support

Support

When it comes to your shoes you want to try to find something that is going to offer you a decent amount of support for what you are going to be doing while wearing them. The CLARKS Un Coral Step shoes are a pair of casual or dress flats and as such are not going to need nearly the amount of support you might require if you were going for a run or a hike up a mountain. These shoes do offer a decent amount of support for what they are, a casual everyday shoe.

They have a slip on design with some goring on the side so you can slip them on and off with ease while still getting a relatively secure and locked in feeling while you are wearing them. As long as you get a properly fitting shoe you should not have to worry about your feet sliding around inside of them or potentially having your shoe fall off completely and unintentionally while you are out and about.

When it comes to arch support, customers have mentioned that there is moderate support here and they were happy with what is offered. The OrthoLite footbed helps contour to your foot shape and will give you some extra padding where you need it, including under your arches. If you are unhappy with what these shoes offer or you simply need more support you can always replace the insole and insert one that better suits your needs.
Comfort

Comfort

Customers love the amount of comfort they get from these flats. They have a fantastic underfoot feeling thanks to the flexible outsole and the OrthoLite footbed that provided a decent amount of cushioning for a pleasant walking experience. A lot of the comfort, however, stems from the soft leather lining inside the shoe, both lining the uppers and the footbed, making it great to go sockless with these flats and still get a nice and soft feeling. As long as you get the correct size shoes for a great fit you will not have to worry about the shoes rubbing and chafing along your feet causing nasty blisters while you walk. They just have an overall comfortable feeling to them that customers adore.
Durability

Durability

When you are in the market for a nice pair of shoes you can generally expect to pay a decent amount of money, but when you do you are going to expect that they will last a long time so you do not have to spend that money again to replace them. You want to make sure that you will get your monies worth out of them and that they will not fall apart on you after only wearing them a couple of times. That being said, the CLARKS Un Coral Step flats are on the pricey side but they are super durable as well. They are designed to take quite the beating. The rubber sole is tough and will not wear down too quickly. The same goes for the OrthoLite footbed, you are not going to have to worry about the cushioning wearing thin and losing its squish, the materials are designed to be long-lasting. Finally, the leather uppers are strong and will not easily tear and rip, ensuring they will have a long lifespan.

Of course, in order to get the most out of your shoes and giving them the longest life possible, you are going to want to make sure that you are taking care of them properly. If you mistreat them they will fall apart a lot quicker than you might like, but that is to be expected with just about anything.
Fit

Fit

When ordering shoes online it can be hard to figure out the right size the first time. You do not want to receive your shoes only to find out that they do not fit you as you expected, that can be extremely frustrating. It is highly recommended that you take a peek at the sizing charts, even if you think you know what size you need, just to make sure you are getting the correct size the first time.

In the case of the CLARKS Un Coral Step flats, you are going to want to make sure that these shoes fit you snugly, but not too tight that they are pinching your feet or squishing your toes. One of the great things about these shoes is that they are available in both medium and wide widths which customers adore.

Reviewers are saying that they are running just a tad bit too large so they recommended getting about a half size smaller than you would normally get to make up for this discrepancy. They are, however, true to width so that is not something that you will have to worry about.
Flexibility

Flexibility

The CLARKS Un Coral Step flats have a decent amount of flexibility to them which is much appreciated. You will get a fairly good amount of support from the shoes while still being able to move around and bend your feet as freely and naturally as possible. The shoes will bend with your feet with each step that you take without restricting your movements very much. No need to feel like you are walking around with your feet locked in prison with the highly flexible ballet flats.
Bottom Line

Bottom Line

If you are on the hunt of a pair of cute and comfortable flats then your search might be over. The CLARKS Un Coral Step shoes are extremely comfortable all the way around, from the sole to the uppers, everything screams comfort. They look great too, having a simple and classic design to them you can pair them with almost anything. They will fit right in at the office or look great for a casual weekend. They do not have a whole lot of color options to choose from but customers seem OK with the choices they do have. They might have a large price tag but the amazing durability makes them well worth every penny spend. Customers are generally happy with these flats and believe they make a wise purchase when buying them.
