I have a pair in beeswax, 8D, for sale in my signature.

freakin' eh my Macy's finally started carrying the desert boots. They have beesewax and sand. Comparing these to my UK Clarks they are very diiferent. Mine are sleeker/slimmer in the toebox and are not as wide but are longer. Also mine don't have as much arch support, are not lined where the Macy's ones have a canvas lining? and the leather seems floppier than the Macy's ones and mine are a different shade/darker. They wear very different also.

2 different beasts.

clarks..they've always had Clarks just no DBs....They also have 501 STF in midnight, gray, and brown finally. yay Macy's too bad all the brown 501s were like 38 waist.

this has been asked countless times but where can one find purple DBs? any other colors available? blue or green?
post #2677 of 6914
Hmm. Ya know, it's rumored that James Dean dipped his jacket in red paint for Rebel... . Not sure that's true, the jacket was probably just dyed red. BUT... it makes me wonder... might we not take an old pair of DBs and paint them whatever color, red, blue, green, whatever...? A Clarks DB thread challenge, anybody? For the most daring results, use house paint. Post photos of results.

should I start a thread for this?!!

If you are serious yes, that would be a cool idea.
post #2680 of 6914
Yes, I am... but... I don't have any myself that are old enough to do this to...

But I'm fascinated with the idea.

In other words, somebody else would have to take the lead.

anyone know where I can get these? most of the grey DB's have a light sole, but I think this one looks better.

i've seen pictures that looked good but you obviously you can't use house paint or anything like that, you'll need some method that won't ruin the suede upper
post #2683 of 6914
just get the spray can and do blue blue suede shoes anyone
post #2684 of 6914
True, but no rules. If you wanna ruin the suede and use house paint, maybe that's the effect you're after. Personally, IF I were to do this, I'd slop on house paint.
post #2685 of 6914
Does anyone have any recommendations for any suede waterproofing/protecting products? I need them for the black suede DB's, if that matters.
