Clarks Desert Boots - Page 384

post #5746 of 6915
I got some brown suede ones and kind of regret it...they're just kind of 'blah'.

Maybe I'll just bash them up and hope the wear makes them look a bit better.

I'm sure this has been answered somewhere in the thread, but I wasn't able to find it frown.gif.

wear them.

I'd condition them for at least 15 mins a day, you don't want your desert boots looking beat up now would you

After using tied-back-together laces for a while...I submitted a thing on the "contact us" part of the site and they contacted me asking for where to ship the laces.

I did mention that I thought they were defective--the left lace had broken (and been tied back together) something like 4 times while the right one was still fine--but they would probably send them if you just asked.

preferably with locally sourced organic virgin olive oil.

if that's not possible, locally sourced organic butter will suffice. sweet, not salted.

yes, but the butter must have been hand churned by virgins as well. just simple steps to make sure your clark's are decent

Anyone know of any good suede stain removers?

I have fruit punch stains........... I think my shoes are fucked.

I'll go ahead and assume that all of this is sarcasm, and that I don't need to do anything to care for them?

Same. I bought some a few years ago, barely ever wear them. Thought I would grow to like them, but I haven't.

I got the tan suede ones. just something about the sole that bugs me walking around.

I've been wearing mine for six months and haven't done anything to care for them.  People here tend to recommend Obenauf's LP to restore and protect the leather but I haven't needed to apply anything yet.

just conditioned my saddle leathers from davidz, these are awesome!

Lately I've been sprucing up my old pieces of clothing whether it be a re-sole or a tailored hem.
Just finished my DB with a new sole, new laces, shoe trees, and a little bit of mink oil. I realized I have an awesome cobbler in town, my red wings are next.

I'm sure this has been covered already. I'm in the market for a pair of beeswax DB but am unable to locate my size (men's 7.5). A local shop tried to sell me a pair of women's size 9 telling me that the boots are infact unisex. Is this true? Are Clarks DB the same for men and women?
