My first pair were a half size too large. It seemed a lot of people had that. No problem, I used Amazon's free returns to exchange for a half size smaller. As an aside, if you are worried about the return policy on items like this, don't! Amazon is excellent at exchanges and returns. Anyway the boots themselves looked great, leather was same color as I ordered from amazon, seemed comfy for the half day I wore them albeit large and prone to slip off my heel.
So I got my next size, and i was really digging the boots. "Yeah, i found the best pair for the money!" I thought to myself. I took them to work the next day, and around 11:00 i noticed the sole was separating. "What the heck!" I looked at amazon and saw reviews stating this was happening to them also. Then I looked around online and noticed many people saying the same thing, talking about Clarks' quality decline. Granted it seems like you can find that for any shoe manufacturer these days so take that with a grain of salt. Regardless I wasn't happy. But I wanted to like these boots SOOOOO much. They looked stunning with a nice pair of dark denim, or khakis. So i decided to exchange them and try one more pair.
So my third pair comes in the mail. I took one shoe out of the box. I didn't even put it on. I simulated walking in them. I bent the toe ONE time. Not a heavy bend that would make it touch the laces. No, just a normal bend you would occur when walking.Read more ›
I know what you're looking for.
You are looking for a boot that looks manly, both rugged and refined. You want to wear it to the office with khakis, and you also want to wear it with your jeans to chop wood in. You definitely don't want to worry about it in the snow, and you need it to keep your feet dry. Men don't like wet feet.
You're not a cowboy in Montana so you can't buy cowboy boots without being a dork, and they can't be too heavy because you need to outrun wild animals if necessary. It can't be too tall or too low because you need it to be versatile for in-and-out-of-office use, and it absolutely has to have a low profile with clean, simple lines and stitching, because that's what gentlemen wear. And of course it can't have too tall of a heel because women wear high heels. Men just have heels on our boots and we don't talk about them.
Also, because men like leathery things, you need them to be leather, and not shiny or too clean looking...but a sweet looking, aged, broken-in, badass man leather. Suede can be appropriate in certain occasions, but you want real deal leather. After years of searching, I have found the perfect leather man boot.
The dark brown leather chukka Clarks Bushacre 2 Boot is the same shoe as the Desert Boot, but has a much more durable synthetic sole. It's not as springy as the Desert Boot, so some might say they're not as comfortable. I disagree and literally wear these every day. I've had the Clarks Desert Trek before (not the Desert Boot, but with the same crepe sole) and sure they were comfortable. However - the soles started to wear down pretty quickly, and they literally melted - MELTED - to the seat of my car on a hot day.Read more ›
I am a 21yo 5'8 male who normally wears US 9's on vans, chucks, running shoes, nike sneakers.
CON: My military boot sizes were always US 8.5 so i ordered an 8.5 bushacre. Wasn't "too" loose, but it bothered me because i had to tie the laces so tight in order for my heels to not feel like they are sliding up. I could fit my fingers inside my shoe between my heel and the heel of the shoe.
Returned it (free) online on amazon via UPS ground, amazon gave me a label print out to stick on the box. I am currently awaiting full refund tomorrow 11 Nov.
PRO: I ordered a US 8. Just received it 1 hour ago. It is now in the picture provided. They fit just like my 8.5 military boots, but a little snug on the left/right side of my feet. Length wise, i can still move my toes, and i dont have to tie it as tight.
Somehow, the 8.5 I got looked more "used" and light colored. The one i got today is darker, newer looking, and was totally newly packaged. Definitely looked like in better condition than the 8.5 i returned. HOW WEIRD?
ANYWAYS I f***in LOVE THEM. They are very snug but i know something i can break into. I am gonna wear jeans more often now. They also dont look too bad with skinny pants/khaki's.
Might actually buy one for my dad on christmas.
I'll follow up in 1-2 years to see how these boots hold up. Theyre gonna be worn ERRWHERE
Now, for those of you trying to decide between this boot and the Clarks Originals Desert Boot, you're in luck - I bought both styles at the same time, both in Beeswax Leather. (Because I got a great deal, and I like them a lot.)
After having worn these for roughly a month now, I'm starting to favor the Desert Boot. It's more comfortable because of the flexible and springy crepe sole, the leather seems to be better quality, and the quality control is better.
That said, they are very similar overall, and you can't go wrong with either boot. Here are some additional observations (Desert Boot is DB, Buschacre is BA):
1. Current DB is darker than the BA by a few shades. So you can own both and rotate, and they'll look like different shoes.
2. As I've said, the leather on the DB seems to be better quality. In addition, the two leathers have different surface feels to them. The DB seems a bit more "waxy", the BA is left more "natural" and soft to the touch.
3. Crepe sole on the DB, rubber sole on the BA. The crepe does get dirty FAST, even on the edges/sides, whereas the sole of the BA stays cleaner (and is easier to clean.) This is probably the main advantage of the BA. But, the crepe is more forgiving/flexible/bouncy when you walk.
4. The BA has a very thin lining, the DB is unlined (except for a little piece of lining down by the heel). Doesn't seem to matter either way.
5. Sizing seems to be roughly the same, though my particular BAs seem just a tad bit larger, at least width-wise...Read more ›
