    I've been reading that suede shoes can handle thing better than your typical leather shoe.

    Is a pair of suede shoes capable of being worn everyday, or do you still have to let them rest at least 24 hours after a wearing?

    You should at least let them rest that long for fear of becoming 'the guy that always wears the same pair of suede shoes every day'

    What's wrong with wearing the same shoes everyday?

    You'll break a suede shoe just as quickly as calf if you wear it every day. A nice thing about suede shoes is you don't have to polish them. Regular brushing takes a few seconds and keeps them looking great. But if you wear them every day, you'll tear them apart.

    You need to let them dry. Your feet perspire and if you wear them everyday you will speed up the degradation of the leather/suede.

    If they have removeable inserts, remove them after a days wearing.

    And be sure to use a good quality shoe tree for at least two hours after you take them off. This will help deal with the moisture, which will preserve the leather longer.
