Clarks Desert Boots - Page 339

^^^ I like Oakwood a lot. I want to pick up a pair for the summer, but I can't find any at a reasonable price online (I remember when they were cheap, I'm not willing to pay $90+ for DBs now that they're so hyped up).

And places that do have them on sale usually don't carry oakwood... let me know if you come across a good deal!

Just bought some Beeswax DB's off Amazon, get them in the mail, and they look like this: Looks like somebody already wore them. What the hell? Should I return these for an exchange? How did this even happen? Whoops, too lazy to flip the photo.

I'd guess it's something someone tried on and returned and Amazon just sold it again. The soles (the sides, anyway) look too clean for outside wear. Honestly, they'll get beaten up enough that these initial marks shouldn't be a problem. And you can basically massage the orange streaks back to brown. Though, if the creases on the vamp, etc. don't match up with your own, that could be an issue.

I mean the creases do match up but it seems like the leather is all cracked and that I could have prevented that with some polishing if they were actually new. Think that's true? Because if so I'm going to return them, if not I'll just live with it I guess.

Those look like creases not cracks? They're going to look way more beat up than that as you wear them, and imo they look better that way. They also lighten up in color over time. Check these out (not mine):

The Clarks desert boots have a crepe sole. I don't know what that is exactly, but its softer.
I have the bushacre 2's, its still soft but harder than the desert boots, I read that its synthetic. Lady at the store said that crepe is raw unrefined rubber.

Couldn't recommend a color, but i've got the beeswax suede. I like them. The only problem is that i think these things are so damn comfortable...have a feeling i'm going to like the black leather ones, or the gray....or another beeswax leather pair...

If the leather's genuinely cracked and not creased (like it seems to be), I'd say return them. Granted, I don't really know how Amazon's return policy applies to shoes (or this specific situation).

I think desert boots are not meant to be treated like dress shoes...they look good with creases.

Alright I'll just stop being a bitch about it then.
