Clarks Desert Boots - Page 450post #6736 of 69761/10/14 at 10:26pm

I coated a pair of my desert boots with two coats of Obenauf's LP (Sno-Seal should also work), melting each coat in using a hairdryer (and paying special attention to the welt). Sure, they're not completely waterproof, but they're close.... The trick was to make sure that the rough edges of the welt were completely covered in the wax. Of course, either of these will darken the leather.post #6740 of 69761/11/14 at 12:45pmpost #6741 of 69761/16/14 at 9:15ampost #6742 of 69761/16/14 at 10:04ampost #6743 of 69761/16/14 at 12:24pmQuote:
The Horween Clarks Desert Boots are based on exact UK sizing. In standard Clarks, I can go down half a size from my American usual size. I wear the Horween in UK 8.post #6744 of 69761/16/14 at 2:15pmpost #6745 of 69762/6/14 at 5:20ampost #6746 of 69762/6/14 at 10:17ampost #6747 of 69762/6/14 at 9:56pm
Browns shoes has a sale with good prices on clarks db for anyone in canada. Beeswax is excluded thoughpost #6748 of 69762/13/14 at 12:46pm
So any word on whether Amazon has the beeswax in the new, dark leather or original, lighter leather? They took em off the site for a while because there was something wrong with their stock according to customers. Could they have been talking about the newer leather?
Promotion!:If you haven't subscribed up to Amazon's emails, they're offering a 20% discount when you sign up. That makes the beeswax $68 right now in my size.post #6749 of 69762/13/14 at 4:06pmpost #6750 of 69762/14/14 at 12:35pm
