    Seriously? They're already under 100 bucks, and normally you can get them for less than 80. You really need a discount?

    A discount is a discount. What's the harm in him asking?

    None. My point is, they're pretty cheap to begin with.

    I've worn my beeswax for a year straight, admittedly through the snow, and the sole is falling apart. I superglued it back on a few months ago, but its still coming apart at the stitching.

    Anyone opinions on these?

    We won't tell anyone, and I doubt anyone will call you on it.

    People are not symetrical. Your feet are not going to be exactly the same size. Your left is probably just a little wider than your right. You can adjust for this by buying 1/2 size larger and then wearing insoles, or the shoe will probably stretch with some wear to accommodate your foot size.

    Agreed; Desert Boots will stretch a significant amount. I think the guy with the width issue will be fine in a few weeks.

    Which one is the most like the NWT condition?

    Well, Sno-Seal won't darken the shoe very much and Obenaufs LP will, so... [​IMG]

    What's your guys' opinions on these? http://www.amazon.com/Clarks-Mens-Ro...=pd_sbs_shoe_6

    I like them because they're a little bit chunkier than DB's, but i'm not sure


    I've had a pair for about 18 months. They were a replacement for a favorite pair of Havana Joe chukkas that I had for a decade. The main sticking point is the bulky toe box. Otherwise they're decent beater boots - a small step up in durability from dessert boots, but a step down in style.

    I recently got the grey suede DB. I was not planning on wearing them on a daily basis but now I can’t resist; I love these shoes. They are getting dirty though; any suggestions on cleaning them? (not much experience cleaning suede)
