What is your opinion, shoetrees in Desert Boots Yay or Nay?

I personally think Clarks DB shouldn't have shoes trees. The more beaten up it looked, the better it is.

Correct my grammar if it's wrong.

All a matter of preference.

 

I personally think the beat up look, which includes the crepe sole darkening and heavy creases at the toe, look great.

which colorway is this exactly? im loving the touch of brown lining around the base of the boot.

interesting! it always seemed to me that sand suede were like almost like a bleached white, these pics must be either very deceptive or I need to see them in person

Can't believe this thread has this many pages... I've ran through so many pairs of Clarks that have no more than a year of longevity.  The Clark Desert Boot being one of them.  They are great for a few wears, but Clarks don't have long-term durability.  Just my .02

Do you have a particularly rough lifestyle with them? I've heard about them lasting upwards of 5 years sometimes.

I've had my pair of sand suede Desert Boots for over 3 years now and they're still holding together well. I've put them through some rough weather too, including unexpected snow storms and torrential downpours on my bike.

doubt they get much use, if that's the case.

ExhibitA is completely off-base.  I've had a pair for three years and they're nowhere near their expiration date.

post #6521 of 6888
Yeah I've had mine for some time now and still going strong. Granted I probably wear them once or twice a week.
post #6522 of 6888

Saw these posted at an earlier time in this thread. Would anyone happen to know what these are called? The main feature that stands out to me is the fact that it has 3 eyelets so I'm assuming they're not desert boots. Correct me if I'm wrong, thanks in advance

I violated my Desert boots after not wearing them for months. I kinda regret it but I also prefer their shape now. Oh well, they look a bit more manly now, for some reason

Huh? I've had a pair of DBs that have gone unworn for 2-3 month periods and nothing changed about their shape... WTF happened to the heals on yours, though? puzzled.gif

I prefer the worn-in over pristine when it comes to desert boots.
