+1 I've sprayed all mine with Collonil Suede Spray, havent a clue if it works as i havent a pair i didnt spray but nonetheless they all have survived very inclement weather and still look fine. I'm with Mr K i wear mine all weathers and all seasons after advice from a couple Northampton manufacturers. They informed me that in most cases suede holds up far better than calf and i have to say after a few winters all of my suede looks good.
