    i know clarks come in only one width. anyone know of a similar boot that comes in wide widths.

    The Cabelas boot mentioned in this thread comes in medium or wide, and costs only $70.

    Have to put a vote in for the classic, Sand suede. Yes, they get grubby quick but that's the appeal. They just don't look right until they are broken in with dark soles and a little character to the suede.

    Ebay is probably your only bet. But according to zappos, they are expecting numerous new Clarks styles this month and next, so I'm hoping they'll reintroduce grey and the beeswax.

    Beeswax is back. I just bought a pair at a Clark's store yesterday and the salesperson said they just got them in a few weeks ago. I think they only had one other color, and I don't remember which one it was.

    You're welcome. If the price on the Clarks is dropped on Zappos anytime soon there is a good chance I might place an order, as I have been wanting a pair for a bit.

    figured that I would ask this question here, being that its a pre-existing Clarks thread, but what do ya'll think of the Wallabees? I am rather fond of these: [​IMG]

    Wallabees :thumbsup: (I like the higher tops way more than the low top ones)

    I have been debating between leather desert boots or the jcrew mcallisters... are the beeswax available here in the US? I glanced at the site and was unable to find them. The only retailer in my area that carries clarks is Journeys and they only seem to carry a few sizes of the desert trek and wallabee. Should i just keep a look out, or are the beeswax liable to turn up on the US site sometime soon?

    I got mine a week ago at the Clark's store in Bellevue, WA. The Martin+Osa store there also had them. No idea why the Clark's US site (which is really Zappos) doesn't have them yet.

    JPS, I had the same thing going on as you and went to a store to try them on. I bought them at the Clarks store about a month ago and they are so comfortable. I sized down 1/2 a size from 10.5 to a 10. They fit like a glove and feel perfect. I had tried the 10.5 on before that and they felt horrible, so sizing does make a huge difference with this shoe.

    My advice: Order them from www.Zappos.com, you'll get free overnight shipping (both ways in case you need to return them) and it's not such a boo boo if you don't like the sizing. Size down 1/2 a size and you should be golden.
