    Also, NOBD, have you ever scuffed a pair of suede shoes this bad? At first I thought it was some kind of salt leftover from the winter that got washed away by rain yesterday. But it seems I've torn all the suede hairs off.

    Anyone reckon I could put some suede dye on to make the spot darker? These have been relegated to "beater" status but the scuffs still look awful. I still can't figure out how it happened.

    New idea: I think it could be some kind of asphalt from road construction that dried up and settled into the fibers.

    [​IMG] Not really. That's the amount he wears per day, probably, and it's almost all I got.

    Ouch indeed. No, haven't had such bad luck. The only thing I can think of is to put some colour on it to make the spot less obvious, like you mentioned yourself. And then just keep wearing them; consider it character.

    Missed this one. Hm, can you perhaps carefully scrape/brush it off with a wire brush? Maybe wait for other suggestions first...

    are you sure this is suede leather? looks like a derivative made from plastic fibres, like velvet or so.
    real leather would tear apart.

    They are indeed suede. The suede has been "erased" and brushed a LOT.
