Resoling Clarks Desert Boots

Recently, I fell in love with my desert boots again.  After over a year they are definitely starting to wear out, specifically the sole.  The suede upper is pretty high quality and maybe could just use a cleaning and a weatherproofing.  However, the crepe bottom turns into a disgusting black color within just days of wearing brand new desert boots.  As much as I like the crepe sole I think I would like to try something else, just to have something unique.  I found quite a few ideas on google.

Looks like I need to find myself a cobbler.  I need to find out all of my options and the cost.  I don’t think I would feel to comfortable spending 80-90 dollars when I could just buy those new beeswax desert boots instead.
