Clarks Desert Boots - Page 429

post #6421 of 6889

Won't beat the original Clark's Dessert boot. Iconic footwear. Must get myself a new pair :)

midisurf, taupe is more versatile, it depends on what you prefer I suppose, if you have a lot of outfits planned to go with those shoes I'd say go for it since they are more unique than the ordinary taupe suede.

All I have is tan shorts and blue, light blue, black, chocolate brown and green jeans. The green jeans I will be wearing a lot to get fades etc so I'm guessing Taupe.

 

 

Just got hit with custom charges for the green levi 501 too, £17 :(:(:(:(

that is actually a really goodlooking shoe. anyone know where i can get a shoe that looks like that, the simplicity is important, without having to resole a DB?

if not, i guess i'll just wear them as is and get a 1/2 size smaller next time.

I'm not sure if anybody has responded to your post yet, but there's not really a way to shrink leather.

Your best bet is to get some insoles. And maybe also try getting thicker socks.

 

Could be a blessing in disguise, really. Some good insoles could make them into really comfortable shoes.

They're already really comfortable shoes. No need for insoles, just get the right size.

not really, there's a million ways out there to stretch leather.  you would think there would be at least 1 to shrink it.  and there are (washing them for example will shrink some temporarily).

I just bought some new beeswax CDBs from Amazon... are these marks on them normal?

 

http://i.imgur.com/eLn464q.jpg scratchy lines on the right side of both boots

 

http://i.imgur.com/14IMrOX.jpg more marks on the left side of this one

 

http://i.imgur.com/a24QHPB.jpg scuffed appearance on the front of the boots

 

Also, those huge crease marks were not there when I opened the box, but after walking in them for 20 seconds those appeared.

 

If this is normal for CDBs please let me know, I've just never bought shoes that arrived with marks on them and developed more marks like that within seconds of wearing them. I don't know what to think- I've seen pics of lightly used CDBs that look beat up, and pics of ones that are 2 years old that look shiny and fresh due to mink oil or other treatments.
