    I stumbled upon these in a 9:http://www.amazon.com/Ted-Baker-Ashc...646319&sr=1-12

    I'm not a fan of the square toe, but I thought I'd share anyway.


    Ditto on the square toe. good deal though. My J.Shoes should be here Tues. so i'll post some pics then.

    which one?


    Ben Shermans are nice, but visually almost a carbon copy of the Clarks Desert Boots with a higher price tag. I'd say Hush Puppies are my least favorite.

    I just got a pair of desert boots, and they are very uncomfortable to wear for more than a few hours. Do they eventually become more comfortable with wear?

    I can tough it out for a few weeks, but I don't want to if it's not going to get better.

    erbs,
    My Clarks were uncomfortable for the first two weeks that I had them. Spot on the back inside heel on my right foot that would create a small blister after a few hours of wear and walking.

    I roughed it out, and also spent about five minutes just stretching the leather with my hands, but it feels a lot better now.

    They discontinued the grey distressed color and replaced it with the grey suede which I just picked up: [​IMG] They appear darker than shown in this image.

    Do you need arch support? I have flat feet & love the DBs for that reason. Many shoes are painful since they are built for an arch that I do not have nor want to have.

    You might try inserts of the Orthaheel variety if it's the lack of arch support that gives you pain.

    Why not just use Chelsea Leather Food? Problem solved!
