It kind of sucks. Has this happened to anyone else? Should I resole (or can I get away with sanding it down)?
This never happened to me. When I was in college, before getting a professional job that allowed me to afford better shoes, I wore Clarks DBs for everything. I still wear a pair from time to time when I'm too lazy to get my other shoes. Aside from the crepe sole being stiff and dirty, they are still pretty comfy and usable.
If you're on a budget, I'm still convinced that the best $200 you can spend on versatile shoes would be 2 pairs of Clarks DBs, one in dark brown and one in beeswax. I wore the dark brown pair to numerous interviews.
