    No one here has oakwood? That is surprising considering they seem to kind of be the main color of DB. I just want to see how they would look like beat up. I've only worn mine a few times so far.

    Here are my Oakwoods - excuse the crappy iPhone photo.

    I believe the discount is down to 20% today (rather than the 25% it was yesterday). My purchase already showed up in eBates (even though my shoes won't ship until November 8 and my credit card hasn't been charged yet), and it was more than I expected, so my total cost is only $60.56 shipped for size 10, taupe distressed.

    My experience with eBates has been positive, and you can't beat $60 bucks for a pair of these... Especially when those Payless ones will run you $46 with shipping.

    ebates is an awful service as far as my experience with them. after placing 4 orders through them I never got cashback even once. It took an e-mail follow-up rant after my 4th order for them to acknowledge even one order. As such, I wouldn't recommend the service at all unless you have a lot of free time to waste dealing with their customer service for every order you place through them. makes me long for the good ol' days of BCB, its a shame Microsoft discontinued it. oh, and <3 the tintin avatar btw.

    As noted in my post above, my eBates already showed up and was more than I expected, and my AMEX hasn't even been charged yet. But mostly thanks for the Tintin love... can't wait until the movie comes out next year.

    ya their selection obliterates ours over here, sux they dont ship to the US and you have to use a proxy

    some UK-only colors hit stores that ship internationally like ASOS.com, but i think asos charges a lot more for clarks

    ^Damn I want a pair from the UK shop. Can any SF members provide a proxy service?

    I would say I'm a true 10.5 US...they're mostly sold out of the style I want, but they do have a UK 10. Based on their conversion it looks like I'd be going true to size. I was definitely planning on going down a 1/2 if I ended up getting a suede pair...but I kinda prefer these leather ones. Too much rain where I'm from.

    Will I be able to walk in these or will they be HUGE?

    edit: Asos has a nice leather pair as well but not in black.
    Would I grab a UK 9, which equals a 9.5. Just worried about going down a full size because sometimes I can get away with a sz US11 too

    Clarks UK releases are available in France. I just bought a pair of the Tan Antiques at the Clarks store in the 6th. I'm not usually much of a Clarks fan, but these were too nice to pass up. They are more expensive here than in the states, but, well, what isn't.

    I have a pair of Wallabees in 8.5 that fit me really well, however when I was downtown trying out a pair of desert boots in black suede they were really tight on top of the foot when I was trying 8.5, and they didn't have anything bigger. Could there have been something wrong with the shoe? I usually have pretty small feet.. They fitted well in terms of length, but they were just too tight on the top of my foot so I had to struggle to get them on. I guess I'll go try another pair.

    any suggestion to level-up from clarks DB. maybe loake, grenson, opening ceremony? alden's too rich for me. maybe not crepe sole.

    I find the DBs that Vanishing Elephant puts out to be really handsome.

    I usually don't like anything Frye puts out, but their "Manny" chukka is also pretty appealing. Don't get it in black.

    They released a grey one that looked more black. Revolve had it for a minute, but they are all out. I'd love to get my hands on a purr.
