    PSA for people in the Toronto area: StyleSense @ Oakville place has Clarks DBs for CDN$79. IIRC, sizes were from 7 to 9 in sand suede, chocolate suede, black suede, and beeswax.

    There was also a non-Clarks DB there that looked 10x better but it was a glue job from Italy. $40 and it was a lot sleeker.

    Also had some cheap Ferregamos and Bottega Veneta flip flops for $400.

    just get them uniformly wet, then you won't care. or use a seude brush if they get wet.

    What do people make of these?;

    Obviously the second pair are approximately a thousand times more awesome. I'd never seen this 'Desert Mali' before yesterday, but it seems I'll be able to get a beige pair on the cheap. I think they strike the balance between workwear, wrestling, and desert boot quite nicely.


    Apparently the desert mali is being reissued for FW 2010. From the various web sources, the reissue style might include black, brown, and three types of suede (guessing desert tan, some type of brown, not sure on the 3rd version). UK only, possibly. Anyway, am mildly intrigued.

    Anybody know the price, and of a US source, or a UK dealer willing to deal to the US?

    Which one should I get? [​IMG] Sand Suede or [​IMG] Beeswax I can't decide...leaning towards the sand suede but I'm worried it might get dirty easily and I can't wear it in the rain.

    Beeswax or sand? They're both nice. Why not get both?

    My sentiments exactly, I have a pair of sand but every retailer near me seems to be sold out off beeswax in my size.

    Anyone know how often Clarks ships to retailers?

    I don't think those are Clarks Bushacres.

    Bushacres are pretty much a DB on a rubber sole. Two eyelets. Same stitching. Don't know if it's the same quality as DBs but they look very similar.

    See JCPenny for Bushacre pics:

    I have a pair of bushacres that I purchased from a Clarks store, they are the same as the ones in that picture. 3 eyes, rubber sole with zigzag tread, same stitching.
