Finally got my first pair of beeswax desert boots and I am absolutely in love with them...Now I want to get a 2nd pair of desert boots.
For the folks who have owned or do own multiple pairs, which of the suede versions would you get? It's between the Sand, Oakwood, and Taupe colors. Are the Taupe too similar to the beeswax color or are the Sand too light? I'm thinking of going with the Oakwood since they are kinda in the middle but I really wanted to hear people's opinions. What does everyone think would be the best compliment to the beeswax? Thanks!post #5981 of 69884/22/12 at 10:52pmi would go with either the oakwood or taupe. none of them really look like the beeswax, since they're all suede and the beeswax is leather. i'm personally a fan of the taupe, i think that they distress better than the other types, but oakwood is a very nice color if you take good care of your suede products.post #5982 of 69884/24/12 at 12:18pmpost #5983 of 69884/24/12 at 10:32pmQuote:Originally Posted by shnxramen

Thanks for your reply. I ended up going with the oakwood since I wanted something lighter and I am really digging how the oakwoods look. But yea....I'm with you that oakwood suede should be kept clean as possible to make them look nice. I'm sure they'll get dirty fast being suede and all.post #5984 of 69884/25/12 at 7:09amI have worn my desert boots for about a year now but I have been real careful with them and they aren't worn in too much. Should I treat the leather now? Also what should I treat it with? Going through this thread I can't find any specific product reccomendations. It would be nice if there was a guide somewhere on how much different types would change the color.post #5985 of 69884/26/12 at 4:46am
Just trying to figure out the sizing, being an Aussie it is difficult to get right as I don't think any shops near me sell them. I'm in east Melbourne, around shopping centres like Knox and Fountain Gate, if any Australians are out there and know of places that stock them.
I'm a size 9 in Vans LPE's, and I can certainly try on some Chuck Taylors which apparently size the same as the Clarks DB? I'm after the beeswax leather colour, do these fit the same as the suede? And do they stretch out?
I'm guessing I'll have to go for either a size 8.5 or 8, not positive which though.
Also interested if anyone has photos of aged grey leather DB's.
