    Just got my desert boots from villageshoes.com, only took 7 days from New York to Sydney Australia.

    I got sz 10 which is the same size I wear chucks and they fit perfectly.

    The only thing I don't really like in that pic is how the sole has no defined heel, i.e., the sole is all flat. Other than that, they look like a reasonable knockoff.

    How does Clarks DB's and J.crew brand MacAlister boots compare quality and size wise?

    Anyone?

    Anyone?

    McAlisters are bigger - I wear 10.5 Clarks and 11 in Mcalister. There's a little wiggle room in the Mcalister toe but the 10.5's were too tight. The Clarks fit me perfect at 10.5.

    Quality? Well, J Crew's are made in Italy with smooth leather interior and Clark's interior looks cheaper. I own both so I'm not claiming one is better than the other. I do know that I tend to take care of my McAlisters better and wear them with nicer clothes (they also have a sleeker profile.) With the Clarks I kick them around and don't worry about it because they are cheap & easy to replace.

    Handled the J.Crew boots in the store, and I thought they were equally to more crappy, compared to the Clarks; no reason to pay more for the J.Crew.

    I like the Clarks a lot but they are a disposable shoe that I would not pay a whole lot to have. Better to save up for Aldens if quality is your no. 1 concern. Get the Clarks, on sale, is my advice.
