The Clarks Wallabee occupies an odd place in menswear. What other shoe is this popular with both tenured professors and members of the Wu-Tang Clan? As is the case with most Clarks shoes, the reason lies at least partly in comfort. The cushioned, natural crepe sole can go toe-to-toe (pun intended) with most modern sneakers, and the Wallabee’s unique silhouette makes it an off-kilter classic.

The combination of supple suede and natural rubber comes at a cost, though, and Wallabees typically run for $160. But right now, Zappos is offering the Wallabee for as little as $91, a savings of $69. Plus, there is a range of colors on sale (enough for each member of the Wu-Tang). Sizes are starting to sell out, so act fast. You’ll want to consult the size chart, too: Wallabees are known for running large.

Clarks’ best-known silhouette is the desert boot, a classic that’s similarly made from suede or leather and natural crepe rubber. If the desert boot is the prodigy, the Wallabee is the dark horse. The shoe has an unusual squared-off moccasin toe and a short, ankle-cut shaft that’s somewhere between a boot and a shoe.

The squared moccasin toe silhouette shines in the comfort department, leaving more wiggle room than a rounded toe. And the crepe sole is a wedge style rather than a heeled sole, adding comfort and support under the entire foot.

Shoppers raved about the comfort of Clarks’ Wallabee boots, with one writing that they “beat my bedroom slippers for comfort.” Another wrote, “These are the most comfortable shoes for being on your feet all day. They are great for teachers, or anyone that is working on a hard surface for a long period of time.”

The aesthetic earned high marks as well, with one shopper writing that the boots look “great casual or dressed up,” and another appreciating that they “work well with jeans and khakis.”

The Wallabee is an enduring offbeat icon that’s been popular everywhere from the streets of Kingston and New York to college campuses. It’s on a rare sale at Zappos, so you’ll want to act fast.
