Clarks Desert Boots - Page 404

post #6046 of 6915

hey, did anyone tried to paint the soles on the db's?

post #6047 of 6915

Do you think I should go for beeswax or sand desert boots? I'm torn between the two options, and I would like to know which you find more versatile (to be worn with jeans and khakis). Not sure if I'll be getting them yet, but I want to know for the future.

Why? With the material, that would go terribly.

Beeswax, this has been answered hundreds of times.

Definitely the more versatile of the two.

Very tough to pull off.

because I don't like the contrast with the beeswax and it's seems like it takes forever to dirt them up properly. idk, clarks did a decent job with coloring some of the other models... but i guess they don't use shoe paint :D

I'm intending to get a desert boot but I have no idea whats the difference between the beeswax color and this one http://www.asos.com/Clarks-Originals/Clarks-Originals-Desert-Boots/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=738046&cid=5843&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=20&sort=-1&clr=Brown

Any differences? Can't seem to find the asos one on the internet as well somehow...

any sub 75 deals on beeswax? need a new beater pair of DBs
post #6057 of 6915

I have both the one in that asos link and some regular beeswax ones. Those are called antique tan. Very nice but different leather. They are less red and less dark than in those photos. More dressy and less scruffy than the beeswax ones. Be careful, asos uses UK sizes annoyingly. So mine from there are half a size big.

I've seen it done, and it looks good.

any consensus on whether these are regular DBs or bushacres? also, where can i get those laces?

edit - i think these are the laces http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/shoes/sneakers/PRDOVR~37560/99102249517/ENE~1+2+3+22+4294967294+20~~~0~15~all~mode+matchallany~~~~~laces/37560.jsp
