Anyone know how the sizing of the DBs compares to Wolverine 1000 miles?

My DBs and Wolverines are both 11.5, with the Wolverines starting out a tad more snug then the DBs and eventually stretched out to be a perfect fit.

Definitely not to anyone who pays attention to such things, but folks in most offices don't really pay attention to shoes.

I'd probably get dark brown suede if I was going for a business casual environment.

I went .5 size down (I usually wear a 10.5, went down to a 10 for both).

chocolate (dark drown) suede  is the smartest & most versatile. My DBs are chocolate suede, they go with ligh and dark cords, slacks and jeans. However, sand ando ther light coloured DBs do not look at all good with khaki chinos or light coloured cords, it ends up looking too much like a uniform and too coordinated. Also the lighter ones in my opinion look too casual with dark slacks and suits.

Yes, in Europe, no problem, as long as they're dark Can't speak for the US.

Thanks for the response. I wen't down a half size on my Wolverines and there is still a bit a wiggle room even with thick boot socks on. Maybe I'll go down a full size on the DBs.

I went a full size down from my normal size and they fit snug. After a little stretching they should be perfect.

the beeswax definitely end up on the more casual side of things as they break in. they show wear pretty readily and don't really look like "office shoes" after a couple of weeks. i'm about to retire mine after 2 years or so. they are pretty hammered now.

and....screw clarks for not making replacement laces available.

Hey if anyone could help me with my dilemma, it would be much appreciated. I ordered 2 pairs of Clarks DBs from Eastbay, both size 9.5, in taupe and brown suede. However, upon receiving them, the brown suedes were noticeably bigger (by about a size) than the taupe (the taupe fitting me well). Is it normal for different colours/styles to be different sizes? Or have I been sent a faulty product? Note that both pairs are labelled as 9.5 on the shoes.

All you have to do is email clarks and they send you a new pair of laces for free.

I like putting in hardware store-style two-toned leather boot laces as replacement laces. as you already have seen, they are not "office shoes," so it doesn't affect the vibe too much.
