I had my ultimate Indys modified with all brass eyelets by sublime goods. Very happy with Mack's work!

Hey guys, been a while (like, 2 years) since I've visited this thread, but my suede boots are needing a resole.

 

What are the current thoughts on the best resoling provider? Last I heard Alden was way backed up (like 6+months) on resoling and B. Nelson was being recommended as the go to. Is that still the case?

If you have alternatives and you want to keep the shoes in the best possible cosmetic condition, then go with something else.  I do like the idea of putting Alden Leather Defender on them.  

I'm getting ready to order some of the Saphir Invulner for my upcoming suedes - think it will work for suede and leather

I have been using nano so please update when you try the saphire...actually I need to get the suede family out for a fall nano treatment.

Will do...  Hanger Project was out, so I grabbed AE's and put it on my beater shoes.  Looks pretty good...

Of course it is prudent. I'm always amused when I hear the 'they're just shoes' comment when attempting to be dismissive of someone who treats their shoes with care. $99 Cole Haan's from DSW are just shoes. $800 boots made from horses ass are not just shoes. People trying to act like they really got it going on when they don't look at the weather report before deciding to wear their whiskey longwings. There just shoes so I think I'll wear them in the torrential rainfall taking place. Man, must be nice.

I'm with you K-75. Ever since watching a video on nano on the Leffott website, I've been a huge fan. I think I ordered 3 cans of the stuff and treat my suede Aldens before wearing them. Probably overkill, I mean, they're just shoes.

It's not like I'm throwing on ravello nst's in rain storm and purposely sloshing throu every rain puddle singing and dancing. If I get dressed in the morning and my outfit best matches them, I wear them. I carry an umbrella and I walk to and from the office outside. They may get a little wet.

I don't consider myself any better than anyone else because of it. I just don't see the point in buying boots if I can't wear them in rain, or snow, or anything other than beautiful sunshine. 900 dollars or not there made to be worn and it's not like a couple rain spots render them garbage.

So the answer is you're both right.  Shoes are made to be used.  I'm sure most of the folks here have a decent level of condition and wax/etc. that would allow the shoes to emerge in good shape.  That said, I'm going to do what I can to protect them through products like the Saphir (which I'll try on some non-Alden shoes first...) and by choice of shoes more appropriate to the weather when possible and appropriate.  I check the weather for temp and rain before decide what I'm wearing in general, and if it is ugly I'll go with the commando/Dianite selections for example.  I want all of my shoes to last me a long time.

 

As far as the Invulner, I just ordered it a few minutes ago, so I'll check in once I've had a chance to use it.  I've got a great pair of shoes to test it on.

I did a treatment of ALD on my Carmina PTBs. Haven't had the courage to wear them out in this monsoon we had the past few days, but at least theyre ready for a few stray droplets of here or there.
