Quality has definitely decreased over the years
I have worn Clark Sunbeat sandals for many, many years and have also seen the quality decrease in recent years. On the pair I recently purchased, one of the buckles came off completely the second time I wore it. When I checked the others there were two others that the stitching was half off. In the end I restitched all the buckles. The sandals still have a great fit and comfort but the quality has definitely gone downhill.

Most comfortable sandals ever!
Love the straps that could be loosened, the color is gorgeous, and I think that the sandals are a great value!

I returrned for a larger size.
The shoes I received was too small and narrow in width. I order wide width, but receive x-width, I was told that was wide, but it is too narrow for my feet. I reordered a 10 wide width.

lowered quality of sandal
I first bought the sunbeat sandal 21 years ago. The reason the date remains fresh in my mind is they were incredibly comfortable and well put together. I remember giving them to my daughter in law because she had swollen feet in her last month of pregnancy and needed an adjustable shoe.
However much has changed since then. Clarks has sold out to Chinese manufacturers, and as in other companies who did the same, the quality diminished. When will we learn?? The back strap is no longer adjustable. The leather is stiff and the lining rubs in places. I need a half size smaller. Overall, since I got them for a very good price, I will give them a higher rating and hope they break in.

Answer for vacation
As advertised, these are lightweight and the bronze color will go with just about anything! The buckles make width adjustment custom and the insole is nicely padded. I like the fact that there is no annoying stitching on the insole to rub against your feet! It's an all suede cover.

I purchased these sandals to replace my old ones; as usual, Clark never disappoints. The style is attractive and comfortable to wear. Because I have a narrow foot, I appreciate a style with straps that are adjustable. I would definitely recommend this shoe.

Sunbeat by Clarks
Just received. My first pair of Clarks and if they feel this good in a couple of hours from now, I will order another pair. They could use a little more arch support but the bed is very cushy. Would have preferred smooth leather instead of the nubuck but navy is hard to find. They fit true to size

Comfortable Clark's Sandals
My previous Clark's sandals had velcro straps. This pair fits well and looks good. I'm sure they will last even longer than my first pair because of the molded construction on the bottom. I really miss the velcro straps.
