Nothing worse than walking into your house with your Aldens on only to later discover you've stepped in dog shit! That was my morning. Damn shit even had started to dissolve the leather sole in spots. WTF was that dog eating? If it was horse shit I could understand that I deserved it as the boots are Cordovan - Crap on the Crup.
Why do people not pick up after their dogs? Shit!
stumbled across a post from the dead in this thread--probably the most hilarious thing i have read on sf to date.
This has probably been discussed but I can't really find a definitive answer. I really want a pair of unlined chukkas in snuff suede but I live in Seattle. I've heard that high quality full grained leather suede will hold up to the elements well as long as it is given a chance to dry. Is this generally true? I rarely find my shoes get soaked but they will get a little wet walking around and I will make sure to dry them before wearing them again (always give me shoes 24 hours in shoe trees anyway). Am I just throwing money away or getting stuck with a summer shoe here?
