Clarks Un Tallara Ivy Review
Clarks started when brother Cyrus and James made a slipper made of off-cuts of sheepskin. It seems like something so simple these days, but when they began almost 200 years ago, that was a huge accomplishment. They blended invention and craftsmanship, something that the company still prides themselves on to this day. They are pioneers and innovators, always going above and beyond, finding the next best thing to make their products stand out and become superior to the rest. They excel at this task and continue to bring you great quality footwear.
The Clarks Un Tallara Ivy wedges are just another in their massive line of high-quality shoes that you can choose from. These great looking Mary Janes are exceptionally comfortable and versatile, transitioning smoothly between work and pleasure with ease. They have a classic look that will fit in great at the office or look fantastic with a pair of skinny jeans when heading to the mall. No matter what you are doing, let the Clarks be your go-to pair of footwear. They might seem like they have a high price tag at first, but keep in mind the long-lasting durability ensures that you will have these in your wardrobe for quite some time, saving you money in the long run. The vast majority of reviewers are happy with their purchases of these shoes and have even chosen to buy a second pair. If you desire comfort and beauty, then you have come to the right place.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
