    That's a lot of wear for 5 wears. If he ran 5 marathons, maybe that's consistent w/ worn 5 times.

    or maybe seller wore them 5 times after he bought them from somebody else ..

    I know suede isn't as delicate as most people think it is, but really? Suede Lobbs are foul weather boots? It's one thing if your Aldens occasionally get caught in the rain, but wearing these as foul weather boots would just be dumb.

    Insane shoes

    I really like the Vass monks. Are those on the F last? Thanks.
    -LR

    Yup on the F last

    Give me some more details here - especially how I missed all these if they are my size. [​IMG]
    Actually only the Vass are your size but come up slightly smaller!

    Score on the - Lobbs by the look? and that's the first F last dbl monk that I've thought 'I could wear that'! ps I'm wearing the tweed jacket with orange stripe with an orange and blue tie today and i love it - cheers [​IMG]
    Glad you liked it. Pic on WAYWN?

    I know Paul Smith never gets featured much on this thread but thought some of you might find these interesting.

    Don't be fooled by the soles, suede is never a foul weather shoe or boot.

    One word - suede.

    The lizard skin shoes are... interesting, but my experience with lizard is that as it ages or even when rubbed/scraped the wrong way scales have a tendency to irreversibly lift and look bad. Reptile is also an almighty biotch to polish, requiring special polishes.

    So what if they're Lobbs and suede? Doesn't make them less suited to wear in foul weather than your Aldens. Shoes are meant to be worn, not cherished.

    Don't be fooled by the soles, suede is never a foul weather shoe or boot.

    I beg to differ, I often wear suede shoes in foul weather. The whole 'suede is delicate' mantra is nonsense.

    Yes, suede.

    How about wearing a silk suit in rain then? It's meant to be worn, not cherished. Well hurr durr of course you can wear suede in rain/snow, but any person with a modicum of common sense can figure out that a suede boot without storm welting might not fare so well in rain, mud, snow, ice, sand, or salt. Can you do it? Of course you can. Is it the best choice? No, there are clearly better options. I hate to imagine what cleaning salt marks off a $1400 suede boot would feel like. TLDR: take a step back, and stop trying to be an internet smartass.

    Yes, suede.


    In my neck of the woods, foul weather is freezing rain, ice, deep snow, slush etc. If possible, I try to avoid wearing suede in snow and slush that covers my entire shoe.

    How are you cleaning reptile shoes? [​IMG] Yes they require a special cream for exotic footwear. But it's cheap and very easy to apply. Much more easier than cleaning calf leather footwear.
