Clarks DBs (brown suede). Have not broken in because I don't think I can wear them for more than 5 minutes. The bottom of the tongue over the instep of the foot is very tight. I don't think it's normal. I'm thinking of making a visit to a Clarks store because something ain't right.
for the docksides, soak them in a bucket of water completely submerged overnight. next day drain off the water and put them on and wear them until they dry out - may be a long walk. this will mold them to your feet. i've had many pair - works great.
