Teenage companion. Living in Lagos, Nigeria in 1971, these were the only real quality shoes you could buy. The only other brand was Bata. I thought they were the ugliest, but had a lot of teen "firsts" while wearing them. They held up extremly well in the tropical heat and downpours of equatorial Africa. My dad and brother wore them too. Our "dessies" felt right at home when we were in Kenya's Tsavo game park sneaking through the red dust and acquiring its color while trying to photograph rhino. Their last encore was dinner at the swank Dorchester Hotel in London where strangers of equally swank pedigrees complimented us on how well one of their national icons fared in a posh setting. Years later, in 2001 I renewed my bond with them and still attest to their comfort and classic styling and compliments received even though my safaris are limited to the hot and dusty streets of urban America. Cheerio!

Cute but not so comfy. I purchased these for my hubby for Christmas. He wore them a couple of times with very heavy socks, but the backs still cut into the backs of his legs and made him bleed. He has since glued "foam" into the backs of the shoes, but they still hurt him. I think I may have wasted a few bucks on this pair of shoes!

Great looking shoe, useful in a variety of environments, while matching with a good number of styles. Probably some of the most comfortable shoes I own when not going long distances.

Disappointed that the classic "sand" color is no longer available. The Oakwood Suede looked like a close match in the photo, but was much darker in person, more of a chestnut color. Quality seemed more-or-less the same as in the past, but my husband will only wear these in the classic color, so we had to return them. A note about sizing: my husband normally wears 9 in leather shoes, 9.5 in athletic shoes. The size 9 desert boots fit him perfectly, he couldn't even get his feet into the 8.

Dressed up or down, DBs are classic stompers that will have you looking and feeling good. These are great "about-town" shoes, very comfortable but not necessarily made for long treks. The crepe sole is a double-edged sword: very cushy and comfy, but picks up dirt very easily and quickly looks positively disgusting. This often ends up looking just fine; the dirt just darkens the side of sole...but sometimes is just ewww. If your find yourself in the Ewww camp, consider the Bushacre II (Zappos didn't carry but found em for me and hooked me up! :) They're essentially the DB but with a non-crepe sole. Not quite as comfy but no more ewww. Zappos!

Great shoes, but be sure to order a size down from your normal fit. They tend to run a full size large. I usually wear a size 13 but had to size down to a 12.
