    fuck yeahhhh, im so stoked. I just scored some of the Opening Ceremony Desert Boots in Black with contrast sole. IVE WANTED THESE BABIES FOR SO LONG AND I FINALLY FOUND Size 12. I would have preferred the brown leather or burgundy, but I guess this will have to do. is anyone else as excited as me? hahah! woo

    i havnt received them yet but I dropped $223 on them at some Swedish mailorder. free shipping, no tax, I think it was a decent deal. I think this is the most I have ever spent on an article of clothing.


    worth it, i hope

    updizzle!

    I got them today and they are everything I hoped for. Size 12US typically fits me like a glove and this is probably the best, most perfect fitting 12 I have.

    and it took only like 3 days to get here from sweden!

    Completely, 100% agree. Once I go back home, I'm planning to chop the heel off my Clarks so they look more like my OCs. [​IMG]

    Would that actually work? Post pics if you really do it.

    Can't believe how much my Wolf suedes have darkened up with just a little wear. When I bought them the brown was so light that it almost seemed pink. It's now much more of a sort of coffee brown.

    imo, hazarding a guess, I would say it would not. I think it would throw off the support and comfort of the shoe, not to mention the look. Plus what a lot of work--why bother?

    I am still contemplating about doing it, since I don't feel like the heel really adds any comfort to the boots.

    If you are looking for pics, look through itsmedeka's sales threads, and he was selling a pair of desert boots with the heel chopped off, which was done by farmer.

    If anyone's interested, Foot Locker has Clarks DB in Sand Suede for $47.99. They have them in black and brown too, but those aren't on sale. I just ordered a pair with the coupon code URLFLFFY for 30% off, and they ended up costing me $43.53 with tax and shipping.

    ^^thanks a bunch dood. just got me a pair to join my beeswax. $40 and change, can't beat that.

    btw robert, i think they only sell the db's online, not at the stores, if you're worried about their "cache" (even then, too late for that, i think.)

    Eh, I thought they looked good. I am afraid of doing an uneven chop though.

    Although desert boots have been marketed everywhere, I haven't seen them on the streets very much at all.

    OK, I feel better then. Just don't wanna be too identified with the stirp-mall crowd, ya know.

    agreed. for all of the mannequins that they're on in stores and the amount that magazines and websites cover them, i honestly have not seen anyone wearing a pair of desert boots, and i live in la.

    maybe i just don't go shopping enough...but i do go to usc, and you would have figured preps are the crowd that would embrace desert boots most.

    any USA friends willing to help me get those sand suede from footlocker, here in Canada?
    they charge a fat international fee and I'd likely get mauled with customs/broker fees too.

    if anyone's willing to get them and send them across the border as a gift (obviously I'd pay this shipping), hit me with a PM

    edit: somebody who is getting a pair for themselves would be nice, to save a bit on shipping.

    Thanks for this I was looking to get a pair on sale somewhere.
