    I was going to get the sand but then I saw the beeswax Desert Boot and immediately bought them. I've had them for a week and they look great with jeans. Im not sure where they are sold on line but I got them at a Clark's store for $90.

    Actually i found them at the following site:

    I didn't realize that you could get them in Beeswax. I'd imagine those look great. Too bad they have such a light colored sole. My one complaint about my sand desert boots is that most of the sole is stained a black and looks nasty.

    Of the three in the original post I really like the sand suede as it makes them stand out more from your everyday suede boot and it is the color I think of when I think of desert boots.

    I debated b/w the grey and beeswax and ended up getting the beeswax. Been wearing them for about 2wks and they look great. I would probably get the grey ones whenever I see them on sale, but until then I'm gonna work on the leather ones to get them the worn-in look.

    i really like the bees wax one too, but the only problem is that id want to wear the boots with the tongue pulled out, is that possible with desert boots, where the tongue is pulled in front of the hem of your jeans so it flops down kinda? planning to wear with skinny jeans (new cures)

    How do the soles hold up? I've never had good luck with crepe soles, but they look so cool while they last. Much nicer than any other rubber sole Clarks has made certainly.

    My boots have arrived. They are maybe 1/2 size too large, but I wear a 14 and there aren't 13.5's available. The color and leather are fantastic. I'll post pics soon.

    Sand = classic. Grey = alternative/unique. Both = cool.

    Nice. They look really good with jeans. I was thinking about the getting the ones in brown suede but these might be better.

    I have the sand colored boots. I want to get the brown but I cant stand how the sole gets.
