I dislike suede in general. Black, white and blue, however, are different animals.

Will from ASW shows us how:

If I could find cream suede or walnut calf ones in my size, I'd probably scoop those up too.

So I bought a pair of suede Façonnable Andre crepe soled shoes from Nordstroms back in 2004/2005.  Slightly snug fit but the sole was cool and comfy.  They somehow got left them in the  storage area of the  basement (don't ask me why) and they developed a fuzzy mold growth on the sole.  Yeah there was some serious chia pet action going on.  

 

What to do? What...to...do?

 

I know: put them in the sun and the sun will kill all that crap.  So I left them on the deck one hot summer day for the sun to beat up.  Yes, I know:  pure genius. 

 

I got home from work and the fuzzy moss was dead but the rubber was a very dark colour and misshaped and/or melted in some places.  Additionally there were small pieces of stone embedded in the rubber that once removed left gaping holes in the sole.  Nonetheless I tried them on and walked in them a couple of days later.  And that was the last time I wore them

 Fast forward to this year.  I was going  through some clothes to give to Goodwill and I came across them.  So I said to myself, "Self?  Why don't you get them resoled with a leather sole?"

 

"Grand idea" I answered "but do we know any cobblers?"

 

So with google's help, I found an old Italian cobbler and he agreed to do my shoes.  Here is the result.  He took a couple of liberties but they came out pretty good for a pair of shoes that were moments away from getting tossed out.

the pic on LE's website make the longwing bucks look more clunky
but your pic makes them look more elongated, which i prefer

I know I'm not in the same league as everyone else here, and I know the pairs on the left of the bottom pictures run the risk of catching me some flak. I'm going to post them anyways, I got a couple more on the way that I can't wait to post up (I'll leave the spoiler at that)...

Those look fantastic. I'd totally grab a pair if they didn't cut off the sizing a half size above mine.
