I've been buying these meme shoes since I was in 8th grade like 8 years ago when I started seeing CDB's on this board. How terrible am I?
You don't know what comfortable is. The soles are terrible. I have high arches and narrow feet though. Jay 1s are the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. Teva Hurricanes are even more comfortable. But desert boots are some of the most uncomfortable shoes Ive ever had in my life. Cheapo timberland earthkeepers were far more comfortable.
I've since bought some 875s
This. They're my casual late spring/early fall shoe but holy fuck do you ever need an insole inside them.
Also treat that leather every 4 or 5 months, even though they're entry level for /fa/'s standards it really helps.
it's just memes familia.
I made a thread a couple days ago, asking what was actually wrong with them.
despite a few people just not liking them for looks or how they fit, the actual answer is because it's popular with users of reddit, basic 4chan contrarian nonsense. don't worry about it.
I own a pair as well but they are dangerous as fuck when it's raining/snowing. so. fucking. slippery.
Also the quality isn't what it used to, took me 2 seasons before the entire sole was through.
I find them grippy enough, almost slipped for the first time today but there was sheet ice all over the pavement. To be fair, I have been walking on wet leaves in leather soled oxfords for the past few months, so maybe I just got used to not having much grip.
Just wait till the sole is a bit worn down, you'll start checking the weather to see if it will rain that day.
If i ever buy such clarks again, it will be the desert troopers, but they are pretty ugly compared.
Yep. starts like that... just a bit longer and they'll be split in half.
Resoling is like 40 euros here which I thought wasn't worth it, unless he would be able to put a rubber sole on there instead of crepe, but the cobbler wasn't feeling that because it's much more work.
Op here, the jeans are naked and famous weird guy fit, honestly hate them but they're work jeans and I'm trying to fadez hence the gross color/shit fit after they got wet and bled through and loosened. I agree, they're bad. So r the cuffs but oh well.
