That's what I'm currently doing, but for some reason it gets on my nerves that the belt differs slightly in color than the shoes.

How do you like the gray? I was at the clarks store the other day and I almost pulled the trigger but I wasnt quite sure what I would wear them with. Do they look alright with dark denim?

The gray look great with dark or lighter denim, in my view. They haven't quite found a place with any of my trousers yet, though. That's a little trickier. I keep my choc suede DBs for khakis and trousers.

i'm lazy right now, so i won't put up pictures yet. but i'll say the desert boot premium is a great shoe. it's not the same smooth leather that the light brown (also called orange in this thread?). i actually would have preferred the texture of the light brown. but this is fine. it has some wrinkles, but certainly less wrinkly than the hideous black. i'll definitely stick with premium as i would think the absence of cushion and lining would make for a loose fit and certainly less comfortable wear. i like them, especially at $70. the crepe sole makes for no break in period. recommended! by the way, i just did a google search and found this: http://www.bernardofootwear.com/prod...08_s_const.htm anyone know about them?

They look nice.

erm, nevermind apparently they're women's shoes.

i want to get some beeswax DBs and i saw that most people treat them with some kind of mink oil. but i hate that they turn pretty much darkbrown after that. is there an alternative to protect them?

Someone mentioned using some silicone spray on them which worked... I'm not sure though. Anyone else?

i recently got some db's in beeswax. forgive my ignorance but must i treat them with something? Im fine with the color they are now or even if they become a lighter shade.

I guess after 70 pages this thread was bound to come to this.

I didn't know pure white desert boots existed until I saw this post on SuFu

Fellas,

I'm a newbie to the forums, but wanted to post that I just copped a pair of beeswax DB's today for the Clarks store. I usually wear 12s but ended up with 11s in the DBs

Did those who applied mink oil do so before the first wear or after some time?

What is the look of mink oil on beeswax DBs before you were born?

This is a koan.

Don't put mink oil on your Beeswax DB's
