At What Time Of The Year Do You Stop Wearing Suede And Cordovan Shoes?

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
I was wearing a pair of suede oxfords during an unseasonably warm day and my feet felt a bit warm. The next day I felt the same with my cordovans.

What time of year do you retire yours?

I wear shell year round.

I don't consider cordovan to be seasonal and aren't bucks mostly suede? Both can be year round. I have suede loafers I wear with shorts.

I won't wear shell or suede in slush or heatwave weather.

Really? I drag out my dirty bucks in a lot of crappy weather, seeing as they're waterproof. I've put the poor things through the wringer quite a bit, but they're still perfectly fine- the whole suede falling apart if it touches water is a myth. And shell is probably the best leather you can choose for slush- pretty much impregnable.

To me, suede is year round. Shell I wear less during the summer because it keeps my feet warmer. Also, the only shell shoes I have are black, and I wear black shoes a lot less during the summer.

That was Spoo-rific.  But I agree.  Some people change the colors they wear by season (dark suede for winter/light suede for summer).  You can get an unlined suede shoe or chukka boot for summer.

suede is better in rain imo, but other than that whatever is clever

Same here. The shell really seemed to soften up during those 16 hour days of wearing them in the summer. Do not wear suede at all.

suede in rain? i would watch out for the first rains of the season. Usually the first rains washes away the dirt and it usually ends up on shoes in the form of water spots
