    How are the grey ones? Usually I dislike the leather used on Clarks desert boots, it looks cheap.

    Has anyone tried contrast lacing on a pair of DBs? I thought contrast lacing on Paul Smith shoes were pretty cool but I can't afford Paul Smith.

    Must I be extra careful not to let the suede touch water or snow?

    And air. Minimize the exposure to air. And sunlight. Sunlight is hard on suede.

    Seriously though if you spray them with suede protector they'll be fairly water repellant. You don't want to wade through puddles with them or shovel snow in them, but for normal wear, they'll be fine. I even walked through 3 blocks through a huge downpour in my chocolate suede DBs and they're fine.

    Have any of you guys had probems with denim bleeding onto your light colored clarks?

    Not considered a problem by those in the know. If you love your Clarks, you kill for the best denim bleeds you can get. Embrace the bleed!
