    Does anyone have any recommendations for any suede waterproofing/protecting products? I need them for the black suede DB's, if that matters.

    I just use Kiwi Suede & Nubuck protector, it's cheap and it works well.

    I wouldn't use Rit dye. There's a reason the stuff is so cheap. It doesn't hold that well even on cotton fabrics.

    Anyone contemplating dyeing their Clarks needs to listen to some Wu-Tang.

    Might be a stupid question, but is this shoe breathable? Also general consensus is to size down? Is that true even if I choose to wear dress socks with these?

    I sized down. I originally ordered my size but found out that I indeed should size down. I did a whole size because they dont make half sizes way up in bigfoot land

    I don't blame you for asking this question, but I will point out that there a 181 pages of Clarks DB sizing questions. With that said size down a 1/2 from your measured shoe size. I'm a 10 and wear a 9.5. They fit perfect. I can wear them with thick, medium, and no socks.

    I sized down from 11 to 10 and they fit perfect
