    I recently received a pair of EG Harrowgate in dark oak/ mink suede. In the past, with my other suede shoes, I have put on a protectant ( Kelly's Water Protector) to keep drops of water from damaging or discoloring the shoes. It says it can be used on leather, but I am not sure I trust it with shoes like this. I plan on using Saphir products for the calf part.

    How can I protect these shoes?

    Thank you!

    Before you spray, just cover the calf with low-tack masking tape.

    Hmmm... Not sure about putting masking tape on them, there are no straight lines on these longwing bluchers. Besides, couldn't masking tape mess up the finish?

    I think the tape bengal is referring to are those tapes which are just slightly more adhesive than Post-It. :)
