    No really, I think you're making a bigger deal out of it than it really is.
    It looks like a pretty basic moccasin detail to me

    That's how they attached the part with the laces on it, rather than extending it all the way down to the sole.
    It seems to me that DB's are the one's with the extraneous material...

    The same thing is all over Sperrys and various other mocassin style boots
    And as for the sole, it looks exactly the same to me minus the chunk missing between the heel and the toe.

    I don't think those minor differences would detract as much when worn as you're imagining it would.


    i think these look sick and in a fit people would cum on them

    Whats the best way to clean suede Clark DB's ?

    I got them murdered at a party yest, the toes look like I dipped them in oil haha

    I don't want them to look like they came outta the box, a lil dirt never hurt anyone.

    I bought these at David Zs, and they had me waiting for nearly a 1/2 hour because they were transporting my size from another store.

    seany, buffs dem wid a suede eraser and then scrubs deys wid a suede brush. Goes you to a shoe store or even to a grocery store and you can find, no doubt. Then sprays wid suede protectant spray.

    Do da trick, I garrantee!

    I heard an eraser would work, I used a pencil eraser and it worked for the most part on nearly all the stains. But I need some real "suede" tools.

    Def hitting up the local shoe store asap, before the snow hits me.

    Pretty common to find an eraser brush kit/combo. You'll have to buy the spray separately. Beyond that, don't worry too much about it as long as you protect the suede with a little spray now and then.

    One other thing I do with my suede DBs--tuck a couple wads of newspaper in the toe boxes between wears. Helps keep the shape.

    Topman pants, my friend. I don't know if there is any difference though.

    Oh... too bad. Topman especially looks too weird or too generational generally for my taste. Maybe it's the colorway/pattern that I like most.

    Does anybody have any idea where I can get the Black Distressed Leather ones in a size 10? I checked everywhere online and found only 2 places that had the black distressed, but virtually sold out in every size.

    Any help at all would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Yah. I like them. Just don't think I could get away with wearing them. I'm confident in my manhood and all, but at the same time... .
