    Huzzah, finally found some Taupe suede originals in a store and found the 11s to be a bit long and slidey, but the 10.5s a bit snug width wise. I suppose they might stretch a little though, and I was wearing thicker atheletic socks at the time so a thinner sock would probably be good too. They looked fantastic though and I'm looking forward to really giving them a go

    Nice, I was stuck between taupe and oakwood but in the end went with oakwood.

    Who are you guys using for a UK proxy? I have not found a pair I want other than on the Clarks site, so I have been looking for a proxy and no luck thus far.

    Thanks,

    Just wanted to confirm, are these boots unisex?

    I saw a place in Canada selling them and they have a branch near me, however the website lists sizes up from 8 in the mens section, while the women's section lists from size 6 up.

    Clarks website seems to list

    Of course I'm a size 6... but not too keen on wearing a girls boot haha [​IMG]

    (Also I keep hearing to size down so these probably wouldn't even fit me well anyways [​IMG] )

    I've seen several websites list them as unisex. GL with a size 6 though, don't think I've seen a website that goes that small.

    As for sizing, I sized down half a size from my normal shoe and it fit. Couldn't believe Nordstroms actually had sizes down to 7 mens, but I guess women buy them too. Ok, maybe they might have a size 6 mens... I didn't ask. Apparently they do come in a six mens. Just saw it on Amazon.


    PSA: BR has a 25% off $100+ sale going on for two days. I'd rather hold out for 40%, but if anyone's got the itchy trigger finger... just letting you know.

    Sh*t. Doesn't look like I can grab the DBs off BananaRep.

    Just found out they have a Canadian site now and they don't carry any shoes.

    Looks like they don't ship to Canada through the US site.
    Might have to use a proxy, but will have to look into if it's worth it still.

    If I can still get 40% that is still a lot off though...hmmm

    You should also check the 40% off coupon you get from BR nefore you buy. My friend gets them and the last one he got listed Clarks in the exclusion.

    The last 40% off coupon I received via email said " Not valid on women's shoes, Clark'sÂ[​IMG], AdidasÂ[​IMG], or Chan LuuÂ[​IMG] product". I think the days of 40% off Desert Boots on br.com are over.

    They do have size 6 mens on Amazon and Onlineshoes.com. I wear a size 6 DB. Failing that though, just buy a women's size 8. They are, in fact, unisex, barring the fact that women's shoes measure two full sizes below men's.
