yeah, heres exactly what went down with me and warren g:

we ordered some beeswax clarks desert boots on ebay the other night. $90 shipped. we ordered size 9s, and were pretty confident they'd be the right size. well we go into banana republic in our local mall today just to look around and shop a bit, and i notice they have the "saharas", which are basically clarks desert boots with a banana republic sticker on the inside.

well, we start talking about them and he tells me that he heard here on SF that clarks actually made those for banana republic. i figure the sizing would be similar, so i suggest that we try them on in 9s just to see if our boots (which should arrive tomorrow) are going to fit, just out of curiosity. well the lady comes back with some 9's and says that she hopes we fit into them because they're actually only $14.95.

wow. so we picked up the black suede clarks desert boots for $16.50 including tax.

I liked the desert boots and treks, but not really the wallabees.
Does anyone know much about the clarks desert treks? There is a mahogany one in the sales which i like.

Does anyone like the treks more than the popular clarks desert boot?

I don't like that center seam.

For a low-top, you could look at the Desert Khan, which is basically a Desert Boot without the boot. Though for that style, a two-eyelet plain toe blucher, I think it looks much better on a more shapely last, as evidenced recently by Baron and a few months ago by someone showing off some Church's they found. I've not seen any in person, however, and could be wrong.

Yes ive never really considered the trek until trying one on the other day. And i thought it looked pretty cool. If it gets a bit cheaper i might buy it. BUt i quite like the seam. It makes it a bit interesting.

I think ive seen some girls in the past wear this kind of shoe in the past and thought they looked quite good on them if i remember correctly. It might not suit guys though. But my first impression is that i liked it.

this is a stretch but if anyone tried those br sand suede saharas in a size 9 and they didnt fit i would sooooooooooo buy them, i unfortunately thought the 9.5 wouldve worked and by the time i got around to ordering the 9 they were out of stock
post #308 of 6992
Yeah I wanted the sand suede..but they ran out :[ So I got the black one instead.
post #309 of 6992
only suede is available now? can the regular leather be found anywhere?

Which BRs in Manhattan still have the Saharas on sale? Have checked the one at Grand Central and on 34th and neither carry it anymore...
post #311 of 6992
yeah i think they are gone from retail for good right now

I love my three Clarks (two desert boots, one desert trek). But it's too freaking hot here. Can't wait for fall to get into something besides my damned Sperrys, PF Flyers, and sandals (I don't wear dress shoes of any kind unless I go to the rare formal event--my everyday life is entirely casual, for better or worse).

freaking weak! those beeswax look great.
post #314 of 6992
Yup, my beeswax should be coming in next week. =]
