    What does breathable mean in the context of shoes exactly? Almost every shoe breathes unless it's sealed plastic. Leather will breathe less than canvas. I have just never heard of this being related to shoes before.

    is there any difference in width between, say, a 9 and a 9 1/2?

    UnDS-ed today, to have a comfort experience with DBs, DO NOT SIZE DOWN, because u definitely will need to add an insole....

    Anyone have an opinion of the Generic Man desert boot? I've found some 50% off. They feel really well constructed and fit well. Will I be horrified in 6 months?

    or not...Mine are super comfy. My foot measures 9 and 8 fit perfect.

    YMMV especially with shoes.

    As soon as I can find a sale I will be purchasing my first pair of desert boots. I'm a size 10 in Purcell's. Would I be a 9.5 for DBs? Also, I'm debating between sand suede and taupe suede to be worn with jeans almost exclusively. Any opinions? Thanks.
