    The primary difference is the sole.

    i've tried a pair of burgundy db's and they are some clean boots! very stylish and different. if i was a few years younger and had that type of style then I would wear them.

    you can find them online. just look

    can't find the black leather db anywhere. bought a pair used in size 9 but it was too big for me, I resold it on ebay and made a profit haha.

    should i get black suede or some type of dark leather?

    actually those look pretty much like the black suede but with a different color sole. I'm looking for something leather, and I found some nice ones:

    too bad it's snowing here and I don't want to wear them in the snow. If I buy them I'll have to wait a long time to wear them.

    Yes, got to break them in.


    Was wondering if anyone might be interested in a pair of size 9 Matte Black nubuck DB's from the davidz collab. Good condition, upper leather is great w/ contrast. Sole dirty of course -- $90 shipped

    Tried on two pairs today, one pair a half size larger. The larger pair had some heel slip but was ok width-wise, while the smaller pair was tight in width and really uncomfortable. The sales guy insisted that I should go with the tighter fit as they would stretch out a ton. What do you guys think?

    Also, I'm still debating between oakwood and taupe. Which is a more versatile color? Anyone have pics of their taupes with khakis and black jeans?

    Anyone here that has oakwood do you wear them with a black peacoat/black jacket? Can oakwood look okay with a black coat? I wear em sometimes with my black coat but not sure if it looks good.
