On impulse, I snagged a pair of New & Lingwood khaki fabric and tan leather spectators on ebay. Not sure if I want to keep them, though they are really cool (I was planning to wear them with jeans, actually) - I just don't know if I'll wear them much. But in any case, if I do bring them out of the house, I am worried about how the fabric will hold up. I went to my shoe repair place and the guy sold me Meltonian spray, but I'm really worried about what it would do to the leather parts of the shoes. Then again, if I decide to keep them, I think they would probably improve with some serious beating around. They remind me of old WWI army gear with the khaki canvas and leather hardware, and I think, once seriously broken-in, that they would look really awesome with dark jeans. Anyway, what are you supposed to do to the fabric parts of this type of shoe to protect them? Thanks.
