Clarks Desert Boots - Page 412

post #6166 of 6888
well the soles on my DBs are shot. the left one is worn all the way through. now the question is should I resole with crepe for 60, buy new, or try to find a cobbler that can resole with vibrams?

thanks!

I dont really want to start over, mine are well aged and lovely, but for 77 bucks I might as well just go new versus repair. It's a sad day.

jesus it was 66 bucks after the promo thing. No excuse not to go new now. Thanks!!

was around $50 iirc for my local place to put vibrams on. kinda foolish to spend that much when you can get a new pair for a bit more, but I wanted to try it out.

how do the suede desert boots hold up?  i already have a pair of beeswax wallabees that have been to hell and back with me that i love.  suede might be kinda nice.  do they run large like the leather shoes?

 

edit: thinking about grabbing the "oakwood" coloring

and how did you like it? i'm not tossing my old ones, I might still resole with the vibram route as those look great!

These look great! Is that the Vibram Christy? I think I'm going to put them on my matte black fieg's. Also, which model Cristy?

Does anyone know how to remove water/liquid "spots" from the leather?
 
I'm about to put on a coat of Obenauf's and I was worried that these spots would still show after treating them. Before I apply the Obenauf's, I'd like the leather to be as clean as possible.
 
I've taken some pictures so that you guys can see the "damage"

Looks like alcohol stains. You can literally just use warm water and a rag to get most stains out. If not, try saddle soap or something similar.
