    Those look like a pair of Clars X Horween burgundy DBs. I know ~1 months ago END Clothing had a restock, sadly I just checked their website now, and it appears they've all sold out.

    Perhaps drop them an email and ask if they're going to have another re-stock any-time soon?

    Not exactly the right thread but does anyone know what the deal is with the higher topped Weaver boots? Are those discontinued forever and they only sell the low ones now?

    Padmore and Barnes has the P700 boot which is the same, but I can't find any of their stockists besides END, which has no stock of the color I want.

    Thanks. I used the suede brush and it got most of it off. Its good enough though. Also I'd rather wear Clarks Originals with the Clarks tag on. Thanks though.

    When I was a young buck like some of you guys, I wore desert boots. I think it was for less than $12. 95. I loved those DBs to the death in spite the lousy fit. I would still wear them if they came in a double wide width. Anyone know of a look alike that comes in that wide a width.

    Hey Newberry! I have the Oakwood Suede pair of desert boots and have used Jason Markk Shoe Cleaner on them about 3 times. It's worked great and with a little bit of elbow grease it even can make the crepe look new again! If you purchase the Jason Markk kit it I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you purchase the premium hog hair bristle brush from Jason Markk with it also, I think it's an additional $15 but is well worth it. The standard brush that comes with the Jason Markk Premium shoe cleaner kit has plastic bristles, and it'll make the suede look beat up but does work great for cleaning the sole! I will let you know that the suede on my boots didn't look beat, per se, but they did look a little more aged after the cleaning. But that may have been from the year of wear I didn't notice under the layer of dirt that collected on them during that year.

    Another option for you would be to buy a suede brush and a suede eraser. Jason Markk makes just a kit and I've heard great things about it. Your boots don't look entirely dirty so the eraser and brush may work perfectly for you.

    I can take a photo of how my boots look now if you like to show you the suede. If you wanna see Jason Markk themselves clean some suede with their premium cleaner, click here.

    Thank you. I have Oakwood desert boots too and other suede shoes. I bought the kit and love it!

    Hi,

    I just ordered and today received my first pair of Desert Boots. I ordered the beeswax colored shoe. But I must ask maybe a stupid question.

    After just trying the shoes on inside my apartment, I got this light areas on the leather, as you can see on the picture.
    This hot me really confused and wondering if it should be that way? Will the whole shoe become lighter colored during time so the difference will not be visible?

    Just to clairfy that I of course did untie the shoes before putting them on and off. And they are not to small, they are almost a sizeto big.

    doesn't seem to be a 'general' clarks thread so hopefully this will work.

    do desert treks fit the same as wallabees? i'm a UK 11 in the latter, but unsure about what to order in the former - unfortunately no one in australia stocks them so i can't try beforehand.

    i was told by a few retailers that the trek fits the same as the wallabee, so i ordered the same size but but imo they fits at least half to almost a full size bigger than the wally. not sure if the material makes a difference, but i now have a UK 10 trek in beeswax leather and completely thrashed UK 11 wallys in cola suede.

    it's rare for me to have shoes that fit too big (almost always too small), so paying almost half of the shoe cost to send them back to england was extra painful!

    Do the Clarks Mali fit the same as the Desert Boots? I assume so because the shape is exactly the same.

    Had a bargain the other weekend, walked into my local Clark's store as they had a sale notice in the window to find these 2 pairs of desert boots on the bargains rack so ended up buying both, total cost was £45! Even the woman in the store couldn't believe the prices.

    Updated my worn out CDB.

    Bought the new Aerials. Has a new lightweight synthetic sole.

    I really dig the look of the update to a classic:

    Coolest feature to the Aerial Desert boot is the new outsole:

    Doesn't get stained like the classic crepe sole and seems to be longer wearing. Like with other CDB, one has to go half size down.
