I bought a size 10 a few weeks a go and they're too big. Thing is I have to order from the US so no chance of trying them on. I don't know if I should size down 1/2 or 1 full size. I usually take a 9 1/2 in the suede models but these seem to fit bigger.
Is there much a a difference in size as you go down in half's? There's about 2cm space at the front of the boot from my toe.
Same here, ordered an 11US and it was too big (I could slip them off tied) so I sent them back and ordered a 10.5US. They are still a little too big, I got heel slippage in the first week which caused blisters on both feet, apparently they should slip but only a tiny bit, too much and friction causes blisters. I must be a 10US in these boots so I would order a full size down if I was you.
You could downsize by half but find yourself wanting a tighter fit, if you do a full size down the only risk is them being tight and needing breaking in, safer bet is full downsize as going down half a size is for getting that really snug fit 'when you feel the boot fits but you could push it further' that requires two weeks of breaking in to make a 2nd skin. It's like ordering a 30 waist jean size knowing 31 fits fine but you could break that size 30 in to get a real snug fit.post #6320 of 69761/20/13 at 8:48pmQuote:Originally Posted by K2793
Well I don't mind suffering a little longer if they will break in. Bottom inside of my right foot was rubbing walking home and that was irritating. No blister but close. And back of ankles are still annoying. Is the leather just going to soften up?
If I size up I feel like I'd still feel the ankle. My toes do have a tiny bit of room so it's not horrible but I would probably size up anyways on my next pair. How many more days of wear should I expect until these get more comfy? They are bushacres I should mention
They will soften up, mine were like that before. My foot actually fell asleep in them once
They feel great now thoughpost #6321 of 69761/20/13 at 11:28pm
Just picked up some Taupe Suede's for a steal price. Was wondering if anyone has sno sealed or obernaufed a pair in this color before? I do plan to wear them this winter and just curious how the suede may be affected. Would it look better, possibly changing the texture and color in a good way? Or should I simply leave them how they are?post #6322 of 69761/21/13 at 12:25ampost #6323 of 69761/22/13 at 12:17amQuote:Originally Posted by K2793
Should there be a break in period? The left boot really hurts the back of my ankle. Can't exactly figure out why, the right one isn't that bad. I have them tied about the same pressure and whatnot. Perhaps I sized down .5 too much. Actually hurts a bit to walk at times. Granted I've only worn them two days.
Yep same feeling when I first got mine. Was so worried I'll get blisters. Just wear them long enough and they'll get quite comfty. Mine was a little snug (took that size according to the salesman's recommendation) but eventually it loosened up to just right.post #6324 of 69761/22/13 at 12:26ampost #6325 of 69761/22/13 at 2:57pmpost #6326 of 69761/22/13 at 3:11pmpost #6327 of 69761/22/13 at 4:25pmpost #6328 of 69761/23/13 at 4:20pm
Im seriously contemplating on getting a pair of 'Clarks Originals Desert Boots - Denim Suede Mens' for close to $130 from amazon. The colour looks cool, providing that 'denim' is different than 'navy', and the sole is supposedly 'synthetic' as opposed to 'crepe', which is a big plus for winter. I can't seem to find this colour-material combination for Clarks Original Desert Boots ANYWHERE else. And that's the major reason why I'm willing to spend the $130. I wanted to run it by the experts here, do they make clarks originals desert boots with synthetic soles? because this is the first I've seen or heard of that. All info online points to Bushacres being the boots with the synthetic soles. I'll put a link to the amazon page below and you can easily notice that it's the only source selling this pair if you google: "Clarks Originals Desert Denim Suede Mens Boots".
I'd like to note, one of the reasons why I think it's a unique colour and material is the pictures the seller has up on amazon. They look significantly different from the Clarks Originals Desert Boots Navy Suede, which I can find for $80 online.
Also: Im planning on getting a pair of Clarks Desert Guard Boots in black, any experiences or input?
Thankspost #6329 of 69761/23/13 at 6:45pmQuote:Originally Posted by mojserkis
I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction regarding bushacre 2 vs desert boots. I have a pair of desert boots that I need to replace because I have worn through the sole. I am wondering which of the Clark's boots has a more durable sole. Any help would be appreciated.
I have beeswax bushacres and taupe suede originals. I'd say the rubber sole of the bushacre is definitely more durable. I picked them up because I'm expecting harsh weather the next couple months. But, the taupe is much more comfortable out of the box. My beeswax's have seemed to break in finally so they're both alright now. I don't think the crepe is bad though, I plan to still wear the taupe's since I got a good deal on them.
