I think I need to replace my desert boots which are LL Bean, and have worked well. But it does not look like Bean carries them anymore. So, back to Clarks, which I have not owned since the 70's. Has anybody had a pair lately? Do they still run large? What is your overall impression? I take my desert boots seriously. I would estimate that nearly one half of my late teen/adult life I have worn them. The best pair I ever had I bought in 1969. They were made in Czechoslovakia. The crepe sole seemed thin, but wore like iron, and were very grippy. The fit was perfect too. If you know where I might still be able to find these, let me know, they were the best.
