Uppers

Uppers

The uppers of the Un Tallara Ivy's are made out of an incredibly soft Nubuck leather to give you a great deal of comfort as well as a highly durable pair of shoes. They feature a rounded toe as well as a Mary Jane strap with a hook and loop fastener that can be adjusted to give you a more customizable fit as well as secure your feet in your shoe.

The wedges feature a soft leather lining that adds to the overall comfort level of the shoe and offers terrific breathability. You're going to be able to get a decent amount of air flow into the foot chamber while you are wearing them which will help keep your feet cool and dry which is especially vital on warmer days. You won't have to risk your feet overheating. Additionally, since they are well ventilated, you should have not a problem with the sweat from your feet escaping the shoe, keeping you dry and reducing the risk of having smelly feet at the end of the day.
Midsole

Midsole

The CLARKS Un Tallara Ivy wedges have a leather-lined OrthoLite footbed to bring you all day comfort that your feet will adore. The footbed is made out of recycled rubbers, keeping them relatively eco-friendly. These rubber are mixed with a proprietary polyurethane to give you a highly durable insole that will be able to retain a vast majority of its cushioning, even after a year. You are going to be able to keep your comfy and cozy cushioning underfoot for quite a while without fear of them wearing out and becoming uncomfortable. Not only is midsole comfortable, but it is also designed to be breathable so it will work with the uppers as mentioned earlier to ensure you are cool throughout the day.

One thing about the midsole that customers can appreciate is that the footbed is removable. There are not a lot of customers who need to take advantage of this, but it is nice to know that if you need to swap them out for an insole that will better suit your needs, then you can, it is super easy, barely an inconvenience. Maybe you don't want to replace your footbed, but you want to clean it, no problem. You can take it out of your shoe and pop it right into the washing machine.
Outsole

Outsole

These shoes feature a wedge heel, measuring at about 1.75 inches high with a platform of only about a half inch. Please note that this height is based off a size 8.5 and can vary from size to size. They are going to be able to give you the height that many customers love while giving you fantastic stability thanks to the wedge heel.

The rubber outsole of the Clark's is designed to ensure you get a decent amount of flexibility to them so you will not have to worry about your movements being restricted while you are out and about. You will have the ability to bend and move your feet as naturally as possible while walking around in these shoes. The sole is also highly durable, being able to take the beating of your feet pounding into the ground.

When it comes to traction, the Un Tallara Ivy's can offer you a decent amount. The sticky rubber mixed with the tread pattern on the bottom works together to help keep you on your feet. Of course, you might not want to veer off the beaten path too far with these as they are not designed to go trekking through the woods, but heading to the office or walking on most surfaces should yield no problems for you.
Style

Style

The classic Mary Jane style shoes have customers falling in love with the CLARKS Un Tallara Ivys. They have a wedge heel that measures at just under two inches, giving them a little extra height that makes women feel good and look great. The Mary Jane strap is adjustable and features a hook and loop closure to provide you with a customizable strap for a supportive fit. If you're heading into the office or hanging out with the girls, these wedges are going to be an exceptional choice, pairing great with a pair of skinny jeans or a pencil skirt.

Unfortunately, there are only a few colors you can choose from, and some reviewers mentioned they would have liked to have seen more of a variety, but most were able to find something they wanted in what was available. You can choose between either black or navy blue.
Fit

Fit

Ensuring that your shoes fit your feet properly is key to providing you with optimal comfort and support. You want to find that fine line between a snug fitting pair of shoes that hugs your feet and something too tight that it is digging into your skin. Sometimes it is difficult to determine what size you should purchase when you are ordering online, but there are sizing charts out there to help you decide what you will need for the best fit.

The Un Tallara Ivy wedges, according to customers, are fitting true to size for the most part. One reviewer said that they were just slightly on the small side, but not so much that she felt she needed to go up a size. They do have an adjustable Mary Jane strap that you can use to help give you a better fit for a superior comfort level.
Comfort

Comfort

Comfort is essential in a pair of shoes. Yes, some people will suffer through the pain of wearing a great looking pair of shoes for a couple of hours, but why hurt if you don't have to? You will not have to deal with pain and discomfort with the Clarks Un Tallara Ivy wedges. They have a great style and exceptional comfort.

The OrthoLite midsole is responsible for the vast majority of the comfort level, giving you a well-padded insole under your foot to provide you with long-lasting cushioning that you'll appreciate at the end of the day. If you find that they don't provide you with enough padding, you can always pop it out and place an insole of your choice in them, easy as that.

The soft interior liner feels great against your skin, helping to prevent any irritation from rubbing which can lead to blisters. Additionally, it allows for a decent amount of air to flow into the foot chamber, keeping you nice and fresh and preventing you from overheating too quickly.

They have an overall amazing in-shoe environment, and customers adore them.
Durability

Durability

When you're looking at the CLARKS Un Tallara Ivy wedges you might notice that they have a slightly higher price tag then you might be comfortable with, but you should note that they might not be cheap, but they are going to last. These shoes are highly durable and will not fall apart on a whim. You might spend a pretty penny up front, but they won't need to be replaced for a long time.

The soft leather uppers are highly durable and will not rip or tear easily, making sure that they are going to stay intact for quite a while. Additionally, since they are wedges and not heels, you are not going to have to fear for them snapping and breaking on you as you might with a pair of heels.

The OrthoLite insole is the superstar of the Clark's though; they are designed to take a beating and keep on keeping on. The footbed has a decent amount of cushioning in them that is going to stay soft and squishy for a while, keeping you comfy for upwards of a year or more.
Support

Support

The Un Tallara Ivy wedges can offer you a decent amount of support while you are out and about, as long as you are wearing the correct size. The shoes will hug your feet, fitting you snuggly, keeping you securely locked in place. Your feet will not slip and slide around inside the Mary Jane while you are wearing them, posing a falling hazard, your feet will stay safely in place. Additionally, the adjustable strap will give you a little bit of extra security.

As for support under your arches, these shoes have you covered. Customers have commented that they feature moderate arch support thanks to the OrthoLite footbed. It will take on the shape of your feet, giving you padding where you need it the most. If you can't get what you need out of these shoes, you can always remove the footbed and replace it with an insole that better suits your needs, but for the most part customers are happy with these shoes right out of the box.
Weight

Weight

When you're wearing a pair of shoes for extended periods, or if you are doing a lot of walking around, you are going to want to try to make sure that they are relatively lightweight. You don't want to feel like you're walking around with additional weights attached to your feet. Thankfully, the Clark's are designed with this in mind, and the construction of them allows them to keep the weight off without sacrificing any comfort or reliability. They weight in at only 10 ounces for a size 8.5 medium which is on lighter than other similar products. Keep in mind that this weight is for only one shoe and will vary depending on the size you purchase.
Stability

Stability

The wedge heel provides you with all the benefits of wearing a nice pair of heels with the bonus of being extremely stable. The whole sole of the shoes is flat and sits on the ground which increases the overall stability, making it easier for you to stay upright while you are walking. Additionally, the wedge isn't too narrow and still provides you with a thick base to stand on, unlike some other similar shoes being produced. If you're looking for shoes that give you the height of a heel and the stability of a flat, then these wedges are going to be the perfect fit for you.
Bottom Line

Bottom Line

If you require a great pair of shoes for the office or solely for a comfortable pair of casual shoes, then you have come to the right place. The Clarks Un Tallara Ivy's are a versatile pair of footwear that can transition between work and pleasure with ease. They might have a high price tag, but the fact that they are going to last makes them a worthwhile investment. Customers seem to be delighted with their purchase, and many have even opted into getting more than one pair so they could have more of a variety. You will love these fantastic wedges.
