It's actually a common misconception that distilled water has a ph of 7. When it is freshly distilled and assuming there are absolutely no ions present (which there will be) it will have a pH of 7. However CO2 in the atmosphere dissolves into the water as soon as it is exposed to air, creating dilute carbonic acid, shifting the pH into the 5-6 range. Not that it's extremely relevant as it is still above the pH range of leather that you suggested, but i just thought i'd...
Yeah they're definately gimmicky details.The blue rivet is an easy fix for whatever its worth. I stratched the blue paint off mine in a few minutes with a small flat head screwdriver. Underneath its not copper like the other ones though, its brass. A much better, more understated contrast though.
Gap seems to be getting rid of the selvedge coin pocket detailing, as well as the blue painted rivet. The coin pocket still had the selvedge but it was hidden. I was at the store and they had a mix of both the newer ones without those details and the older ones. They both seem to have the same denim. I like the change, still content with my old ones though.
All clarks DB's are resoleable as far as I know, as they all have the same stitchdown contruction. The cobbler likely doesn't know their stuff. Try another cobbler.
Other people's creasing is relevant because this question has been asked time and time again, always with the same answer, that it is normal. The circumstances are quite similar in each case when it comes down to it. If you used the search function you would've seen that many people have different creasing in each of there boots and that is normal. It is quite simple, cow hides are a   natural product so there are inconsistencies in the hide. If a shoe/boot is made with...
Creasing like that is normal. If you don't want creasing get plastic shoes. Also use the search function, it is getting ridiculous how many are people asking whether the creases they have are normal.
Just a disclaimer. Those are not the 875's (even though they look very similiar). Neither are they full grain, it states that they are oiled nubuck.
Can a shoe with basically no support be good for your feet because it is somewhat similar to walking without any shoes? Sanuk (I know they're ugly but thats besides the point) has a big marketing spiel about how there shoes are actually better for your feet because the flat sole and floppy upper allow the muscles in your feet to act like they were designed to. Just curious if there is any truth to this, or if it is just marketing BS and if you are going to put your feet in...
If it uses their standard craftsman last (like it was stated above) I can't see any reason why they wouldn't be able to. The fact that it is not listed means that they never carry it in stock though. Email them about a MTO boot, they will make you pretty much anything within reason.
All the RMW's I have seen, crease like that, I think there might be something else to it. RMW's are constructed quite differently than most chelsea's (it is my understanding that they have that lengthwise ridge when new because of the artisan? way that they are made).  I can't understand how if the elastics are snug around your ankle you would be able to avoid those creases at the front, just below the ankle, as your ankle bend there and would have to bend the leather. If...
