    Anyone have a problem with their DBs bleeding onto their socks? I have a pair of beeswax that have stained two pair of socks in three weeks.

    I just bought a pair in sand suede on sale at endless. I don't remember them being so slim since the last time I tried some on.

    Logged on and went to Endless.com to pick up a pair of sand suedes at $66 only to find that the sale seems over - DBs are ringing up at regular price!!!! [​IMG]


    I blame myself - put a pair in my online cart no longer than 36 hours ago and I ran out to do laundry before checking out.

    Anyone know if Endless does these sales regularly?? $66 a pair plus free 2 day shipping is, imho, a helluva deal.

    - E63


    Ehh just be patient. Sales on these seem to appear frequently. Piperlime just had pairs of beeswax for $70 shipped (on sale at $79 with 20% off code, free shipping).

    No treatment, and they've never been in the rain.

    Both my katahdins and beeswax wallabees stained my socks the first few months I wore them.


    If anybody`s interested in a New pair of Taupe Suede Desert boots size 9.5, check my sig below. I`m in Canada so if you are also, you can save on customs charges.

    My apologies if this question has already been asked, but..

    Should I buy my DB's a tad tight to account for breaking in and stretch?

    Bing cashback on endless (bing is almost over for good though) when it is 30%... Brings them to 66.50 shipped if they are full price (and less if you get one of the colors that is discounted but a little bit already)

    avexdevil, those shoes on the last page are aging beautifully. I love what those are doing.

    with that said, using mink oil is a great idea for keeping your leather going. it's cheap (like 6 bucks or something for a tin.) just put a little bit of it on an old sock and rub it into the leather. wipe off any excess that's on the shoe and let it dry for about 24 hours. continue wearing.

    No. Never buy any shoe a tad tight. Buy a shoe that's comfortable.

    picked up a pair of beeswax at the rack today for 60 bucks. if any of you live in/around san diego, the mission valley nr has a bunch more pairs, albeit not many in beeswax.

    i have a pair of desert treks that i love and have beaten the shit out of over the past couple years. looking forward to doing the same to these.
