Just wondering, are Clarks DBs supposed to be made in Vietnam? It's written "Made in Vietnam" on the shoe tongue. Does that mean they're fake?

Sir, your posts are exceptionally stupid.

No, DBs nowadays are made in Vietnam.

Not sure, but I don't like the look. Found a pic of a guy who did it; the boot takes on a chunkier, less graceful look imo:

Good god, those look like orthotics. Definitely not addition by subtraction.

Semi-related note, anyone seen a re-soled DB that actually looks good? I've got a pair of beat-to-shit black leathers that I'd like to get fixed up, but all the sole styles I've seen tried just look rough.

^ I assume you've seen the re-soled Beeswax DB's with Vibram Cristy soles:

I thought I read somewhere on here that you can just buy the glue they use and apply layers to help the sole last longer. Anyone remember anything about this?

Earlier in this thread someone posted these; I think they look great with a black sole. I'm sure any cobbler who can work with vibram or rubber would offer other colors as well, similar to the beige rubber soles that come with the Bushacres:

Liking these. Take on a whole new aesthetic with the wedge sole. Don't know if I'd do it, but I can appreciate them.

just saw the mali boots for the first time in Macys. They look pretty damn good.

The cutoff heel offers more of a "working man's" feel to the boot IMO. I prefer the Originals with the crepe sole and heel, a buddy of mine has had his Original's resoled with some Vibram sole, can't recall which one, but I'll see if he can get some pics for me to post up.

So I finally bought a pair of these, I usually wear 9.5 EE, so I bought a size 10 of these. They length actually seems about right and the fit is pretty good overall especially considering these are a more narrow boot. Anyways the top part of the boot has been rubbing above my ankle pretty badly, does this go away and the leather breaks in a little more? Also is there anything I should do to the leather? I thought I remembered someone recommending oil but this thread is a mess and the OP contains no info.

^ Mine broke in in less than a week, and the rubbing stopped. I'd wear them with long dress socks for a bit to prevent that; should be gone soon enough, though.

Just bought my first pair. It's brown suede. Before I bought it I thought I'll be able to wear it with so many things in my closet, however now I'm struggling to find things to wear it with. I probably shouldn't have went with brown, since I own nothing else that's brown. :(

 

Can anyone give me some tips and/or suggestions of what I should wear my new brown DB's with?

 

Thanks.
