Paid a visit to my local Clarks store and was having a lengthy chat with one of the clerks, he said he still wears his pair of 9 year old beeswax. I HAD to snap a pic, they were lovely! I asked if he had them resoled since they still looked like they were in really good condition, surprisingly he had not.
They also had these, which I've never seen before. Waxed canvas

Bought a pair of brown suede desert boots. Should I suede protect them? Is it necessary?

Pointless in my experience

I need a list of American online stores that carry the beeswax leather AND ship to Canada. The canadian dollar is waaay too good to buy things at canadian prices. I know needsupply has them but they don't have them in the size I need... any suggestions would be sweet

I'm looking at getting a pair of Taupe Suede DB's, but they're a little light for my tastes. Is there anything I could do (water-proofing or suede protection) that will darken them up a bit? Pics would be much appreciated.

Beeswax look good, black look horrible.
