    How did those gel inserts work on the desert boots?

    To my surprise my Grey Suede arrived with black soles; it sorta ruins the look. I might return them and get some sand suede.

    This looks more like black than grey. The grey suede shoes I purchased last summer are a lot lighter, and while they come with what might be thought of as "pre-distressed" soles (sort of blackened on the edges), I think it makes them look more rugged.

    My chocolate brown suede DBs came with sole edges that were painted brown to match, and I like it. Makes them look a bit dressier, makes them more versatile, so they look great with casual-dress slacks as well as jeans.

    Just bought a beeswax DB. Called the Clarks store that is just across the boarder from me, and they have black suede DB's for 39.99. Needless to say I'm making the trip over.

    Like it was said earlier, there are two types of Grey DB, the lighter version and the darker one above.
    Personally the lighter grey is better

    I gotta say though that the dark grey with black soles grew on me, I wore them to work and decided to keep them but I noticed the front of the shoe has pulled itself off the sole; so now its going back.

    If you are going to order from a Clarks store next week follow this:

    Just tell them you recently did a charge send for desert boots and you liked them so much you are going to buy another pair and if you could get the 25% off promotion. Hopefully the salse person will be nice and give it to you, thats what happened to me.

    There should be a big green oval button that says "Search" under each search method.

    The search button shows up on IE but not Firefox.
