Any stores/repair shops in NYC?

Would love to have them looking like this, not to mention the added durability in the rain





Any decent shoe repair place should be up to the job. I don't understand what you mean by durability in the rain though. You would get better traction, but its not like crepe rubber dissolves away in the rain, or breaks down.
Also I think these clarks with ripple soles look sick:

Spray it with a suede protector.

Wash it with water only when it gets dirty and brush with a suede brush.

Reapply the suede protector after the shoes are dry again, after washing.

Just picked up a pair of Bushacres in Beeswax, wondering what's the difference in looks between using Obenauf's LP and Leather Oil?

I will try to wear away the crepe sole on my Beeswax ASAP, the Vibram sole on the DB's look awesome.

:fonz:

Yeah my soles are blackened but not quite worn away. Also still need to find a suitable place to have them resoled.

I was trying on some Bushacre2s today. The stores I was at didn't have any in brown suede so I was just checking for fit. I normally wear an 11.5. While all were listed as 11.5 M width in US sizes some were also listed as UK 10.5 G and some were merely UK 11. For my wide foot the G was true to size while the others were too narrow. So if I have to order online how do I guarantee getting a wider shoe when they all have the same listing for US width?


Edited to add: I contacted both Designer Shoe Warehouse and Clarks about trying to find G width Bushacres. Neither has the ability to differentiate their stock. Since all the boots are labeled a US Medium, it's a roll of the die as to what you'd actually get. No wonder so many people have to size down; the company itself doesn't know and can't differentiate the width of their product.

Anyone know which Desert Boots / Bushacres are worn in this picture?

Yes, that's the Mantights Accessories version.

Sorry if this has been discussed somewhere in the 459 pages of this thread, but I took my beloved DB's to the cobbler for a resole and he said it's simply not possible with these. Was he just being lazy or are there certain models of DBs that aren't resole-able?

All clarks DB's are resoleable as far as I know, as they all have the same stitchdown contruction. The cobbler likely doesn't know their stuff. Try another cobbler.
