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.
