Really want to get myself a pair of suede chukkas but do all suede shoes get hairy?

Better quality suede takes longer but eventually most do. However it's fairly easy to get rid off, just use a lighter and burn ot off. It's a bit scary but if your careful it will burn off easily if you bring the flame close enough, a guy wrote more about it a few pages back! I don't take any responsibility from adverse effects from doing this though, just a tip.
