Sorry, I just didn't know if the sizing of them was a general problem, or not. I'll give them a call tomorrow, and hopefully can get an exchange/return.

Anyone know anything about the Clarks Vacheresse? The stitching is identical to desert boots but I cant find ANYTHING about them?!post #6139 of 69909/17/12 at 9:46amQuote:the soles ARE NOT crepe like desert bootsOriginally Posted by pinkformen

I believe those shoes you linked use a rubber sole, which is nowhere near as fun to walk on as crepe soles.
The upside is that rubber soles don't get anywhere near as dirty as crepespost #6140 of 69909/17/12 at 10:00ampost #6141 of 69909/17/12 at 10:32ampost #6142 of 69909/17/12 at 11:49amQuote:
Thanks guys! Do the rubber soles last longer than the crepe soles? The price is the difference make right now. Desert boots are 160$ for the beeswax while these are under 90$ for brown leather and in the end the DB would have to be resoled fairly often I would think considering I walk 2-6 miles a day.post #6143 of 69909/17/12 at 12:20pmQuote:Originally Posted by pinkformen

Where on earth would DBs be $160? I plan on getting some crepe soled beeswax ones off amazon for $77...
And any advice on sizing for me as mentioned above would still be appreciatedpost #6144 of 69909/17/12 at 12:44pmQuote:I found my crepe soles to be tougher. The stress point on the heel of the sole for my rubbers are more eroded than my crepes.Originally Posted by pinkformen

Canada.... I have been searching for the Beeswax (I dont want suede since Ill be out in the rain and a bit of snow at times) and there are no sales for the Beeswax. I have started contemplating going for the Redwing Chukka 3141 instead since they cost more at 210$ though I like them more. I was hoping to find DB for the 100$ range since I keep hearing about people finding them for 65$ or 95$ but so far no dice.Quote:
Really? I didnt expect that. Thanks for the insight!post #6146 of 69909/17/12 at 1:07pmMy guess is that the rubber soles would last longer....but the crepe soles are awesome.
As I just mentioned above, after a few years, my crepe has started to turn sticky (as I have had other rubber-based products do) and while they aren't worn through yet, if it gets much worse, I will be too embarrassed to walk on non-carpeted floors with them since you can hear them sticking to the ground.
I doubt the bushacre soles would do this before the shoe wore out....post #6147 of 69909/17/12 at 2:30pmpost #6148 of 69909/17/12 at 6:46pmpost #6149 of 69909/18/12 at 2:11ampost #6150 of 69909/18/12 at 9:10am
