I'm an 8.5 (U.S.) in any Vans and in Sperry's boat shoes, but I've read some mixed replies concerning whether to size down or not in Clarks DBs.
Also, which color do you recommend I get: the taupe distressed or beeswax? Which is more versatile?
Thank you. I'm currently chasing after Clarks own protector/weather proof and conditioner products, to see if I can get the company (or anyone) to ship to Australia. If this doesn't work, I'll try that Mink Oil. Only think is, I've heard Mink Oil isn't the best for the stitching and shoe?
Are these beeswax Clarks? The laces are obviously after-market, but the stitching and design looks the same. However the sole looks much darker, don't know if it's been treated or just dirty. I haven't been impressed with most pictures of CDBs but I REALLY like the character and patina on these boots.
I had avoided CDB because I wasn't feeling the look of suede and I didn't like the contrast between the sole and the upper, but those are really great looking. Looks like I'll be picking up a pair in beeswax.
Actually, upon further review I think those are bushacres. Which are cheaper. Hrm.
