    These are mainly wet weather/snow boots to me, so how often I wear them depends on the weather. Sometimes I don’t wear them for a couple of weeks but then I might wear them twice the same week.
    I really like suede boots for wet weather, I’m considering getting one (or eventually both...) of these two Alden boots:

    I also like suede for wet weather unless there is salt on the ground.

    What product(s) do you use to weatherproof your suede?

    I bought a pair of handgrade shoes, and noticed the eyelets on the underside don't have any metal rivets. All my other shoes do. Is this something to be concerned about?

    I usually use Saphir Invulner or Tarrago Nano Protector.

    Breaking in my new dark brown rough-out suede Conistons purchased from 92 Jermyn St. Shipping took less than a week to California.

    Any rough-out suede care tips? Spray with Nano protector or just leave alone?

    I’ve never done anything to my rough out. Seems pretty impervious.

    Not at all. In some respects it’s a quality marker in that the leather doesn’t require metal reinforcement. FWIW G&G AND Vass also don’t feature metal eyelet reinforcement.
