I just bought this
spectator shoe from Moreschi and was wondering how to road-proof it first. Â The dark part is dark-tan leather, but the creme-colored part is canvas. I am worried the canvas will easily stain. What can I do to put a protective coating of some sore on both the leather and the canvas before I wear these shoes out?

Cool Shoes. I would write to making and ask what they would suggest or even a shoe repair expert.

strange shoes.
Perhaps the photo doesn't do them justice. But they are just normal tan and creme spectator shoes for summer, best worn with a beige cotton/cashmere suit. Don't think they are that uncommon.
Is it the photo or is there absolutely no brogueing on this shoe?

I like the shoes. I really have no idea how to keep the twill clean. Scotchguard, maybe?

that's a joke.

Asking if someone is a black gangster (because his style) is not an insulte.

In France only a black dandy can wear this type of shoes. And in your country?

Gangster of 20 years ago of course as today gangster wear snickers.

You're digging yourself a bigger hole. You'd be well-advised to let it drop.

Forget the insults and come back to the shoe care.

Get a "protective spray" (scotch guard type), which works equally for suede or fabric shoes. When applying polish to the leather parts you just have to be careful. (Use fabric wrapped around finger to apply). If need be, even use masking tape to avoid staining the fabric.

Once the fabric has become dirty, you can use foam based shampoo cleaner.
