Thanks 2ghouls. What would you use as a protectant?
I use the Collonil spray protector and have no problems with suede at all, dont know what all the fuss is about regarding suede its just as good in bad weather as calf !!
And the eagle has landed. Size UK8.5
Fit is near perfect on the Hiro last, kudos to Pepe. The pictures on their website do no justice to these shoes. Good quality leather, hidden seam stitching. A little bit of what looks like dried glue overlooked near the welt area. I could not be happier, other than having to wait for my monks which are coming separately.
Like Christian, these are going for conditioning and a polish on the weekend before making their debut.
