Hmm. Makes sense!How about risk of the inseaming hole pulled bigger from stress?
 It does provide additional reinforcement to the weak upper leather, not unlike a leather Strong-Tie. Otherwise the very slim section where upper connects to the outsole might fail after a few resoles. Another solution is to use a midsole, and have the outsole sewn onto the midsole away from the upper/midsole joint.
 What's your opinion about inseaming being tightened and potentially sunk into the upper when there's no braiding?
 How many resoling do you figure that the upper can sustain?  Without reinforcement of an welt, outsole is sewn directly onto the upper for the said pair, and resole will have to go through the upper...

 Like all other shoes.  Use shoe horns to put them on, use shoe trees after wear, and occasionally condition and wax.  Lexol/Bick4, any clear wax or mid brown wax will be fine.

Yeah I wouldn't OD on that suede spray. I use once per year; I own more than 20 pairs of shoes tho.Brass brush raise the nap better than crepe. Crepe feels more like cleaning/brushing the top layer of suede and brass gets deep into the leather.
Fading at the creases is normal.  Suede also loses color from suede shampoos.  Otherwise, use very stiff bristle brush or brass brush to raise the naps.  Suede spray helps as well.
 Neapolitan fantasy.
