Thrift Find: Clarks Sand Suede Original Desert Boot
I spent a good portion of my night debating whether to buy Clarks Original Boot in Beeswax or Sand Suede .
I ended up choosing Beeswax since it seemed like it would be more versatile with my current wardrobe.
My friend called me over to hang out for a bit so we ended up visiting random stores around Irvine and Santa Ana. We somehow ended up at a thrift shop and I figured I might as well check what shoes they had and to my surprise, the Sand Suede Clarks were on top of the shelf right at the front!
I rushed over considering it was really packed in there and hoped that it was at least my size or half a size smaller (I bought the Beeswax half a size smaller after researching how they fit). I examined the boots carefully and it only had a few smudges but it looked like it was probably used maybe once or twice.
I took a deep breath as I pulled the tongue down to see the size and it was exactly my size! I took another deep breath to check the price and it ended up being almost 3 times cheaper than buying them new! I bought it right away (of course) and I plan on cleaning them up a little.
They fit really well even though suggestions were to size down half. Always check your local thrift shops, you never know what treasures you'll find!
