    I hopped on the $57 Amazon deal and my greys arrived today. After a while I figured that they weren't that suede-y at all and I figured they are the distressed grey or saddle grey or some DavidZ shit.

    But I highly recommend this color. Goes will with jeans and my khaki chinos. The contrast from the upper and the sole makes it look a little more sneaker-y and familiar so if you're looking for your first pair after 'graduating' from sneakers, give the grey a shot.

    The sides of the crepe sole had dirt on it but after I looked around it turns out it is supposed to be like that... Kind of bummed out but the sole is going to get destroyed by me anyway so I don't care.

    I will go for Clarks.

    The AE looks like PVC material rather than genuine leather.


    Thats just the photo. I think the black seude will only last like a year or so....

    I'm trying to find an affordable pair of boots to go with my N&F skinny guys, anyone have an opinion on whether the Clark Desert boots would pair well? If not, would you offer any other recommendation? I'm new to all of this and feeling a bit lost.

    Thanks

    I've always wondered, do slim fitting jeans ride up the back of them?

    Clarks are about as cheap you can get for a nice looking Boot. Easily found under $100... But here is a pretty sweet deal that doesn't require coupon and gift card stacking.

    Get the GREYs


    Yeah I have no problem with the price of Clarks or something somewhat pricier, I was just wondering how these boots would work with N&F skinny guys. I just want to get something that's somewhat affordable and will look nice with the jeans I have.

    Interesting. I don't really like the fake dirty sides (quite capable of doing it myself naturally) but I'm trying to figure out any other difference between the $59 Amazon greys and the $95 DavidZ greys. Different/nicer leather on the ones from DavidZ? I was gonna go with the black that they had, but they don't have my size and I think grey may be more versatile.

    Thinking about wearing my sand suede db next week for a vacation to nyc. Is it a bad idea to wear these in cold weathers?

    No, desert boots were made for the cold weather.
