    Is this appropriate? I always felt it was more of a fall/winter thing.

    Please do, and often! Dressier, elegant shoes in suede are beautiful classics.

    I think some suede shoes, in particular full brogues, or dark suedes, can look odd in the summer. They just look too warm and fuzzy. But otherwise, wear them.

    I put away my heavy, dark brogues and bring out my lighter suedes. The texture of the suede makes a big difference.

    LOL! Pics? Loafers (while I would not be caught in them myself under any circumstances) always seem rather casual and "summery" to me so that may be even better.

    I wear a lot of suede loafers and driving shoes in the summer. Especially coloured ones.

    they are fine -- just avoid spring showers.

    (never fails for me. I put on my suede shoes, and it starts raining)
