• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

For the Suede lovers, I found the rich suede moisturizer (they have 2, one for smooth leather one for suede) from Boot Black seem to be very helpful for my suede shoes.

I can feel the suede become softer after using it.

Also curious to know how you guys take care of your suede shoes.
I treat my suede shoes/boots with Nano Spray when I first get them (after trying on for fit), then just brush with a little suede brush an Alden dealer included with a pair, every time I take them off. Reapply Nano about once a year, other than those things I do nothing else.

@stephenaf2003 : how are the meermin boots nowadays in terms of comfort? I used to own a few pairs years ago (regular line and LM) but ended up selling them because they were almost impossible to break in and their heel stiffeners felt like they were made of rock which hurt my feet.

I’d say if they didn’t work for your feet then, not likely they’ll work for them now. For my feet, I’ve never had trouble with breaking boots by Meermin in.

I just bought a beautiful pair of RLPL(?) suede shoes at Goodwill. They seem to be brand new. They aren’t my size but for that price (remember, they were at Goodwill), I had to snatch them up. Maybe I’ll gift or flip them.

In the meantime, I would appreciate your help: they look like men’s shoes, but I’ve never seen this particular label (“Ralph Lauren Collection”) on any men’s item. I tried perusing the internet for this model but couldn’t find it. Can someone please help me identify these? I’d really appreciate it!

In the meantime, I present for your viewing pleasure:
