Has anybody else from Canada had trouble making purchases from their website? My credit card provider has assured me everything is good on my end but my transactions keep getting declined. Seems odd. I sent them an email, but was just curious if anybody else has had the same experience.
I'm in the US and I actually had the same problem on my first order. After several unsuccesful tries, I found that it was my apartment number that caused the problem. I had entered it separately into an address 2 field as I normally do everywhere else. I simply placed my apartment number in the same Address 1 field and the transaction worked after that.
My next question: does anybody have any preferences as to what they use to protect their suede? I gave them a once-over with the Aldo suede/nubuck spray protector, but I'm wondering if there is a superior product, specifically for Horween suedes/rough outs. I have been using the Aldo spray for years on other pairs of suede footwear and they've all held up extremely well. I know the rough-outs are better resistant to water than the Calico suede.
I'm also wondering if there is any real way to ensure longevity to a suede boot. You can always condition and oil straight up leather. Is there any equivalent for suede?
I found this stuff online, but I'm not sure if it's ideal, despite the reviews all being positive.
