    I usually wear 9-9.5 and my feet are pretty wide so I get the 9.0 since I heard they run half a size large. They were far too small and painful to wear, thankfully free return shipping so it is no loss to me. These boots are pretty narrow too.

    were they too short and/or too narrow? Downsizing 1 work well for me.

    The length was almost perfect but around towards the middle of the boot it was far too tight and painful to wear.

    Sizing down 1 full size was perfect for me with regular socks on but were a bit snug with my thick wool socks...

    Anyhow black suede desert boots for sale in a 8.5 (only worn once). Pm me if interested mates!

    is George Harrison wearing Clarks on Abbey Road?

    Yeah, I noticed that too! I think he is. I've seen other shots where it looks like he has some kind of desert boot on.

    Again, there can't be a hard and fast rule about this. You have to try them on and see what size fits your foot.

    about to get some desert boots... trying to decide between beeswax leather or sand suede. Any opinions?

    did you buy a detachable-soled boot?

    ...
    I'm talking about after wearing them for a while not when they were new.

    +1 on the beeswax. I'm hoping to get a pair for Christmas. I just think they're more versatile (re: rain) than suede.

    I just got my grey pair from Norstrom[​IMG] I prefer this than the grey with dark soles.

    I think suede is much nicer than the beeswax myself. But it's all personal preference.

    Indeed suede does own.

    But... DBs are hard to find? Really? They're in my local shoe store. And doesn't zappos still offer them?
