My suede shoes with nano spray seem to clean up easier than they did before treated. With my big feet I too have gotten marks from car pedals. I do not anticipate spending lots of money on light colored suede shoes in the future...AE seconds are great for me.

 



Heck, I get some from driving an auto sometimes. Switching back to a manual soon. Refurbing an 88 BMW E30 for DD duties. Might have to invest in some drivers for the back and forth.

agree.

I am playing catch-up. Long day at work and then took some kids out for dinner last night... I have some pictures to upload... :-)

All, great shoes!

At Lagsun, those Cigar Cap Toes have an awesome color to them!

At beebs, nice suede Indy.

At Justin, those look nice. If they don't feel good, then return them while you can. If you think that its okay, then don't worry about it. The sole will break in and will flex more with your feet and should slightly reduce the heel slip.

At Intensanity, just wait and see how they feel when they come. If they don't work out, sell them and wait for the next run. It will be done again.

At Mac, suede!!! Looking good! :-)

At MrDV, dang two killer pairs in a row!!!

At Kai, those are just glorious.

MrDV-Awesome boots!  I'm hoping mine look as good as yours when they arrive later this year.  However my grass in Dallas will never be that nice, we only get to water 1 time per 2 weeks!

 

See Ya,

Steve

+1 Take the 20% off and run with it.

I would get a replacement pair. IMO, 20% of 675 in your pocket (for a pair you have concerns about) will seem meaningless in a few years, if not a few months.

^ But those blemishes are so minor that another pair of "firsts" could have worse. Or develop that kind of thing with a few wears. I'd take 20% bc it is very minor at least from the photos.

Thanks uncle Mac.

What are your thoughts on the TB last?  How did you size?

@Don L  If the Alden Work Boot is the Indy, these Cigar Caps are the Dr. Jones. I love the combo of pants and boots in this picture. What pants are those?
