Clarks Desert Boots - Page 410

post #6136 of 6880

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.

I'm looking into what size to get these in. My foot measures a size 11D, but it's a full 11, might actually be like an 11.1. So I'm wondering if the beeswax ones would be best in 10 or 10.5? Thanks.

Anyone know anything about the Clarks Vacheresse?  The stitching is identical to desert boots but I cant find ANYTHING about them?!

the soles ARE NOT crepe like desert boots

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 crepes

Unfortunately the soles are turning sticky and its probably time for a new pair.

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.

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 appreciated

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.

Size down half a size from your true size assuming you have regular feet

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.

Really? I didnt expect that.  Thanks for the insight!

My 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....

I know this is old, but Amazon was $75 as of Friday. I got the beeswax for $50 because I had a gift card smile.gif. Getting them tomorrow.

Does anyone have an amazon link to the certain type of oil that they put on their DB? There are a few mink oils out there
