    I placed a winning bid on some Milton Polo chukka boots today. Sorry if you were one of the 5 other bidders that missed out!

    These will be my first ever suede boots/shoes. I'm slightly worried about getting them wet or dirty.

    Do I need any spray protection on them, or are they pretty robust?

    Don't worry ES, use and abuse. Give them a quick spray of something and give them a brush every now and again with a suede brush

    Here's a good place to look @Afinepairofshoes and they're SF affiliates http://www.styleforum.net/t/233902/a-fine-pair-of-shoes-official-affiliate-thread and good people too

    I have the same Boots from Carmina and am thinking of selling them.

    The reason is that they are pretty much useless because of its color. I mean there is just no way you can wear them if there is a chance its gonna rain at least a little bit. That means they are good on sunny days only but then again they are Boots and you dont really want to wear them during the summer, right?

    So I guess they are good for a few days in the Fall and Spring.

    Well, if I had to rely on suede alone this is a year round rotation I could roll out. Btw, unlined suede chukkas for the summer win, amongst others...

    Im loving Suede I just said I am having bright colored boots during the summer, in my opinion boots belong to the Fall/Spring/Winter. However, its raining so often in Germany during that time and my Labrador likes dirty places too much [​IMG]. Therefore I think Chukkas in dark colors are more useable

    is it just the lighting, or does that spray change the suede from a nice vibrant colour to a sticky patchy mess?

    Erm, no. Light spray from about 18-20 inches away, leave to dry. Good to go :nodding:

    Thanks @Cleav . As a poster with a enviable collection of fine suede footwear, which brand spray do you tend to use? The one featured in the video?

    I've tried the Saphir Invulner but IME the protection last only a very short time.
    Never tried the Terrago Nano yet.


    It works, but don't apply it on local areas or only on a single shoes, do both shoes at the same time.
