    I bought the Kohls desert boots for $24 including tax and shipping. Use the coupon code extra20 and contactfr to get 20% off and free shipping. Worth a shot even if they turn out not so good.

    Don't buy the Kohl's version. People said the sole and stitching is so crappy that it fell apart after 5 wears.

    dude for that price no way ... if your going to give a crappy pair with bad quality and say it might be ok for the price it needs to be at least half the MSRP of clarks. im thinking like 30-40 or under

    I think it was $25 on black friday is what they're talking about. They are back up to regular price now.

    check the site again, they are $28 and they are fine in quality. they actually have a decent insole too, much better than the clarks.

    So I bought the Navy Ronnie Fieg Desert Boots from davidz but they look so much duller than the promo pics.

    From Ronnie's Blog:
    http://www.ronniefieg.com/blog/wp-co...boots-0333.jpg

    Actual color:
    http://www.davidz.com/prodimages/alt_images/77888-A.jpg

    Is this just photoshop or can I make them look that bright with polish or something?


    the actual color is far off from both pics...at least my pair is

    i got them in the mail last week...here's a couple of pics in different lighting w/ and w/ out the flas:

    i'd be happy as a clam w/ them if the color looked like either one of these:

    still waiting to see actual pics of the olive and grey saddle leather to see if i want to get one of them instead

    no, you're not color blind

    i thought they were black when i first pulled them out but then remembered that the matte black was not leather

    Hm, if that is really the true color, i would have gotten those instead of the matte black in nubuck... want some black leather boots (who want to trade in size 9??)

    macallisters are a pricey (at full price) alternative to the desert boot. some like them some don't. i personally find them more comfortable than the desert boot and they are a bit more sleek in appearance.

    the "sleekness" is what i am going for and like. they've their version of the beeswax, which looks very nice too.

    does j crew ever . . . go on sale? i found their clothes to be nice and better than BR. i always thought j crew = br.
