i believe i might be losing it because i'm considering paying $500 for a totally impractical (for my wardrobe) off white suede boot. and if i were to buy them, leaving them untreated and taking my chances
Those look like they'd be a really similar color. The style is different (Indy vs. captoe), but I like this one too. The bright brass hardware is great.
Mine came from Epaulet last year. I've worn them a handful of times, mostly because I have way too many shoes and it's hard for me to wear them all.
And the light color does make them more of a warm weather boot.
I did treat mine with some suede protector, but I've come to the opinion that suede looks best with some wear on it, so I'm not going to worry about these. Just wear them.
