I picked up a pair in beeswax today. They've got quite a few in stock right now.

They also have lots of dirty bucks and other suedes right now along with some Allen Edmonds.

In the past I've bought many pairs of AEs and Frye Boots there as well.

Is there a product that DOES NOT darker the leather? I've had my beeswax for over a year but I use some local product that the store sold me when I bought the shoes but it darken the boot!

Thanks

Just treated my beeswax with mink oil , and they got pretty dark I missed a couple of spots, but I'm content with it
what do you guys think?

Be forewarned, Obenauf's Leather Oil actually DOES darken the leather substantially. It will darken by several shades at first (when fully moisturized) then lighten over time as the leather dries. I find the oil softens the leather quite a bit however and from my experience has been a big help in breaking in the (at first) rigid boots.

Looks good!

Mine is dark as yours as well. I kinda miss the original color of the beeswax.

which color in the suede DB looks best w/ stone or khaki colored chinos?

 - i'm thinking dark brown suede?

Thinking about grabbing a navy pair. I've never paid over 70 for these. Can someone help me out finding a pair?
I found some from Amazon for 78, that's the closest I've found so far

First post here. Was wondering where can I get replacement laces, how do I protect my leather, what kind of pants should I wear with my boots, where can I cop these joint at? Haha just kidding... these 402 pages are so redundant and I think I read about 80% of it all. 

 

Kinda stumbled upon the desert boot.. an essential addition IMO. Anyhow, to help with the confusion of sizing I decided to add my personal experience. I wear a 10.5 in all my Nike Air shoes. I decided to pull the trigger on a size 9.5 (eBay for 90 shipped) which were tight in some places but mostly loose, especially in the toe box and heel area when walking. I decided to rip out the useless insole and threw a pair of Black Superfeet insoles which fit like a glove and made the boot much more wearable in both comfort and fitting. The reason I went with Superfeet insole is because they are super slim but give great support when compared to the flat support of the boot. Other insoles I bought were too thick and made the boot fit really tight. I think I could of sized down a half and fitted in some sort of arch supporting athletic ones. Hope this helps!

You can get free replacement laces from Clarks. Just call or email them.

 

Many on here like using Obenauf's LP for protecting their boots. It does a great job but darkens the leather depending on how many coats you put on.

 

I love wearing my beeswax Clarks with some dark denim or some slim khaki or gray chinos.

So I just received my first pair of Clarks chukkas, ordered the Distressed Taupe from Nordstrom. The first pic is the Nordstrom pic of Distressed Taupe and the second pic is the pair I got. The color difference IRL is even bigger (mine are much more grey, online they look brown). The box I received says Taupe Suede (apparently those are two different colors?), but I looked those up and Taupe Suede is more brown then my pair as well. So are the online pictures terrible or did they send me the wrong color?

I believe the photos online are slightly out, are yours more green? Yours look pretty close to the photo though, and look great imo. Taupe is my favourite suede colour.

Finally sent my pair of shoe strings. Wish I would of known they send out free replacements before I bought some others a while back
