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.
I don't recommend you wear clarks in winter sir. Prepare to fall on your butt
