The Best Suede Shoe for Summer - Page 15

post #211 of 243
Can't believe I'm having this internal debate, but I'm trying to decide between these and the Cheaney Highgrove ajv posted a page or two back. I'm far from a brand-whore, but just think these would be great for summer.

Ok, welp... got these two months ago, and they're literally falling apart. They're Walk-Overs. The insole is peeling out, stitching is failing on one shoe... should have invested in the JCrew sand Alden bucks in the first place. BLEGH.

Paraboot's blue bucks are a great summer choice

Do you think the broguing is too loud?

Also who makes those
http://shop.markmcnairy.com/collections/all/products/squeaky-clean-dirty-buck
http://shop.markmcnairy.com/collections/all/products/crazy-saddle

and can one purchase those/something similiar of somebody who doesn't spell "Fuck Ivy" on every single piece of clothing he sells?

I like. A little clunky but nice. Great summer style.

I've been mulling over a suede shoe purchase for quite some time. My shoe wardrobe consists of:
-dark brown cordovan wingtips
-medium brown calf loafers
-medium brown blucher captoe
-black balmoral captoe

Considering my current wardrobe, the next step seems to be a suede shoe, but I don't think I want any broguing, I think I want a lace-up before a suede loafer (which is also on my wish-list!). How about this Sanders model for ~$280?

cross post from another thread...Thanks in advance..

Tan oiled or Sand? I am leaning towards the Tan for a little versatility and transition from Spring/Summer to Fall. Will wear Chinos and jeans..Thoughts? Thank You..

I have a pair of Carmina suede captoes from the Armoury. The Carmina suede on these as well as the loafers I tried on was the BEST I have ever seen or touched. It's buttery smooth. Just by touching the suede, you can see the change of the light over the nap that moved under your fingers (sort of like soft fingerprints, that disappear when you brush the shoe again). Since I bought these shoes, I often touch the suede on shoes in stores, and I never feel or see the same effect. I feel like this must be the difference between cheap suede and GREAT suede. Can anyone else speak to this difference?

I am interested to know if this is significant as well
