    WW2 Replica Boots. I hear they're not comfortable at all. The darker one is just a suede one that's been waxed.

    I got the greys a week ago. Been wearing them lightly but they're nice and will age well over time. My friend had a photoshoot and I volunteered to model a bit and wore them.

    i've been looking for good pics of them to see how the color is in person

    I'm sure this has been asked before, but how will a pair of Db's beeswax hold up in snow? I'm heading home in a week or two, and will be going from really nice weather to snowy conditions. Should I even bother taking my Db's?

    You shouldn't bother. You'll most likely be slipping and sliding everywhere.

    I had a feeling that was going to be the case [​IMG]

    Despite what some may say, you can slip in the rain with your DB.

    Damn it was scary when it happened to me, last time i'll be wearing them shoes. And I am not even talking about a downpour... just sprinkling or when the ground is wet with puddles

    EDIT:

    But it depends... my 2 year old beeswax db was slipping crazy. my new davidz pair of DB was fine in the pouring rain. It depends in the long run the amount of wear and how the sole of the shoe condition is.

    Fellas,

    If you live in the LA area and want DB's/Bushacre's head to Nordstrom Rack at the Howard Hughes Center.

    I picked up a sand suede and a beeswax for $30 a piece. But I had credits and so on so the price for you would be $60 each. I could've proxy'd them but its too much work.

    They had a lot of sand suedes from 8-11 and about 4 or 5 beeswax from 9-11

    oh, i'm pretty sure these are bushacre's (better than db's) because the sole is different. rubber? leather? its just not that cheap looking sole the db has.

    I'm normally a 9.5 and I always buy 9. The leather will stretch so IMO the 9 will turn into a 9.5.

    This DO NOT do well in rain UNLESS if you use the protector stuff. I bought a can from my local shoe repair guy and he demonstrated how to protect your suedes. Spray it generously once. Let it dry for 10 mins. Spray it generously twice and let it dry.

    I've worn my and it's been raining hard the past few days. Water gets on it and then its gone.

    Ive heard of other ppl find DB's at their local rack. I spoke to a sales associate and they said the one I mentioned gets the most because 1. it's the biggest store and 2. it fits the "clientele". The one in BH gets diff types of shoes.
