A solid pick up looking towards spring/summer. I wear a ton of boots in the summer, and not just suede. I think boots, jeans, and t shirt will always look good.
I'm not a big fan of a brick sole, no matter the make-up, but i like this boot a quite a bit.

Unless you live in Hawaii or you're a valued customer, you may be waiting a really long time to get a pair in cigar.

I'm not a huge fan of them. Many many Alden boots out there I prefer over these.

I am only replying because you solicited opinions. Good luck.

I've struggled with suede Indy boots. I have purchase two of them and sold them both. When it comes to suede I prefer Alden's other offerings (unlined chukka, unlined PTB, longwings, loafers, etc). The best suede Indy I have seen is Leffot's navy version. Not a big fan of the tan version

No sevenfoldguy I appreciate your response. I don't have anything near that color so I caved in and got it. Something completely different from what I have now.

I'm also not a fan of the Pitt boot.  I like the plain toe for bluchers, but not for boots.  The only exception being the Milkman Boot.  Someone please bring this back!

I think this is a style that I appreciate, but I'd prefer something like a chukka or penny loafer in such a light brown suede, since that suggests spring or summer to me. It's a nice boot though, and I'm sure (1) they would look great with chinos and denim, and (2) I'd compliment them if they were posted here.

You have to remember this is Texas we wear boots year round... LoL so I will wear then this spring for sure

I completed lots of cleaning this weekend. The snuff suede had a food oil stain which I removed by placing the shoe in a plastic bag and then draping a hot towel over it to heat it up before finally rubbing in baby powder to the stain. I repeated 2x and then washed with Saphir Omninettoyant. The blue shoes I trashed on a night out in Vegas and made worse the next morning by drunkenly trying to clean them with a wet hotel towel. I took them to a cobbler for a professional cleaning but he inflicted even more damage by simply spraying over the stained area with blue suede spray frown.gif. After a wash with Omninettoyant they look almost as good as new. Finally I sealed both with Allen Edmonds suede waterproofer. I'm very happy with how both pairs of shoes turned out.

Do you guys store unlined shoes with shoe trees? I'm concerned that the shoe trees stretch the relative soft unlined suede when used for prolonged storage. I added Superfeet insoles to snuff shoes and the insoles + shoe trees creates a tight fit in the vamp.

^Interesting method fot the stain on the suede. What does the baby powder do? After the suede is heated up, you just use baby powder to rub away the stain?
