I may have gotten a shoe too large. If I can fit a fingle in between the back and the heel,by moving my feet forward, is my shoe too big? Are clarks boots supposed to hug your heel like a sneaker (chucks)?
Just curious because i never really paid attention to clarks discussion but how are the desert boots (suede and beeswax) in light snow/rain? Also, it's crazy people are still debating about sizing these. If i'm a 10chucks, 44Opening ceremony, 10.5sockless sperrys, 285 german army, 10.5 apc x nike i can probably be safe getting a 10 in clarks right? Also, what's a good price on clarks desert boots new and used these days? Thinking of picking up a pair or two for beaters.
^i wear a 42 in OC DBs, 8.5 in chucks, 9 in vans, 9 in sperrys, and i wear a 8.5 in clarks dbs shoes.com always has a coupon out...right now they have 20% off and free shipping w/ this code: BML2009 gap just ended a 30% off coupon u couldve used at piperlime for some clarks
as far as in light snow and in rain, clarks are pretty slippery in light snow. the traction of crepe soles isn't too great...but as for keeping your feet dry, they work pretty well. i haven't had problems with them in the rain, but the suede models do get those annoying drops when water falls on them. you can always just use suede protectant though, only 5 bucks more for your beaters chrono.
i would say good prices for new ones if you can find discount codes (for the various shoe websites) are around 50 bucks. used prices drop accordingly.
i was also wondering if anyone wears their suedes in the rain regularly without applying suede protection. just wondering if you do, if you could post pics cause im wondering how the suede turns out.
