Clarks Desert Boots - Page 444

post #6646 of 6880
I'm thinking of buying my first pair of desert boots. Would the oakwood suede look good with darker color jeans? Or is the contrast of colors too much ?

I don't see anything wrong with that.

Is there much stretch in the Horween desert boots?
If there's none I guess I have to go up half a size (annoyingly so no where with any discount stocks halfs in the uk)
Even a little will make these perfect

Mine is the UK size 8. It felt tight on the instep and my cobbler had to stretch it. You may or may not need the Horween DBs stretched but its an option.

Congrats! The Lastigo leather made by Horween is actually very nice and I'm liking your rich color. I went for the classic taupe which is a light brown shade - more versatile for general walks. I can see the burgundy good for the office and for dressier wear. That's a great pair of DB you've acquired!

Thanks for posting a picture because I have been wondering how they would look after a few wears. Reminds me a lot like color #8 cordovan. I am debating between these and beeswax db

When you say stretch was it a lot? I am between us 8 and 8.5. Size 8 are to narrow but the 8.5 is a bit to roomy.

im between a 9 and 9.5
i went for a 9. its snug at first on the sides but will loosen up after a few wears.

i have a 9.5 for the beeswax . quite comfy and alittle roomy at 1st, but after about 5 wears, it stretches quite a bit and nearly unwearable.

im 8.5 in alden indy and barrie last. and 9.5 in nikes 10 in vans

Lookin' good @benjamin b  -- did BNelson do the work or some other cobbler?

post #6658 of 6880

Just a local cobbler. I didn't have new soles put on, just these sewn up so they'd hold out for a while until I have them fully resoled via the authorized resole company.

$15 + $7 Sno Seal, $0.75 set of red laces. Not a bad alternative to $60 new soles, or $120 new shoes.

The Burgundy's fit the same as the Beeswax however? Do you have any more recent pics you can post? Really liking the looks of them but can't find anything but stock pictures.

Thanks
