    I had wanted to buy some clark desert-boots for some time but went with some Tod's recently...they are much more decadent: they cost way too much and already start to fall apart after two shortish walks, also they look much nicer and are Italian so I'd recommend them to anyone with taste. p.s. think I'll never buy those (Clarks), though, I always buy boat-shoes...
    wait so the "decadent" and recommended to "anyone with taste" Tod's "start to fall apart after two shortish walks" even though they "cost way too much"? that sounds like an awful combination, sorry. I've heard stories of the Clarks lasting 5+ years...

    Hey, underwearer, you smell like a socialist.

    supermidget: to ignore considerations of practicability for the sake of aesthetics is the first step to freedom.

    Don't know your sarcasm stats. But if you truly believe in the above, I feel sorry for you....

    I also at times feel sorry for myself but still, that is actually really one precept I have built my life on...maybe I'm f*cked...anyway, till now I seem to have done better than many others...

    My pair of taupe suede DBs came in the mail today. There are a few scuffs on the side, wondering if it's possible to polish or buff these out? Also, what product is best used to protect the suede? Thanks!

    Does anybody here have a pair of wallabees also? If so, are they the same as your desert boot size?

    Those aren't scuffs. You shoes are predistressed. Seriously, if you worry about every scuff or other mark on your suede DBs, these are NOT going to be the shoe for you.

    Just picked up the desert boots in Oakwood Suede. Really unimpressed with the color, so I put some Doc Marten's Wonder Basalm on them and I am much happier.

    So why'd you pick them up if you were unimpressed?

    Because the color online was totally different than the actual color, guy. They look nothing like this:

    Ah, I see. I guess that's why I hardly ever buy anything online.
