Clarks Desert Boots - Page 401
Styleforum Top Picks
I just got my pair of Beeswax Desert Boots in 7.5D. Aside from the heel slip, the shoes fit perfectly everywhere else. Is this heel slippage expected? I don't think I can size down another half size or else the toebox and everywhere else besides the heel will be too tight.
Yes, for two reasons: first, the beeswax leather is fairly stiff when new. Second, it's only two eyelets and the top eyelet is pretty far down the instep. The good news is, once you've broken them in by wearing them around for a few days the problem goes away, or at least it did on my pair of beeswax Bushacres. I took Obenauf's Leather Oil to mine to hasten the break-in process.
Would some of you confirm that if I want a 7.5 UK I should get a 8US for Beeswax ? I'm thinking this via the help of this link on the Clarks US website : http://www.clarksusa.com/eng/customerService/sizeconversionguide.cfm
Thanks in advance !
