    Not too pointy, not too bulbous. In other words, "just right".

    I just spent a few minutes going over this thread and have decided that my lack of suede shoes is a deficiency that I will have to remedy in short order.

    Yes. But it is simply treated suede that you can do yourself. I had a pair of Heschung suede shoes that were waterproof. I wore them everywhere in the rain. They were rather dark brown and never showed any spots. However, if I walked for a long time in driving rain they would get wet similar to a regular finish oxford.


    I treat all of my suede shoes with waterproofing spray as soon as I get them. It often darkens them slightly but I rarely have a problem with stains or spots that won't easily wipe of with a metal wire suede brush

    PSG, any suggestions on what waterproofing/treatment to use? I didn't treat my new suede numbers over summer but I have another pair coming and would like to give them all a good treating before fall really hits.

    ^ I've used about anything that's for suede and it's worked fine. The last one was a tent fabric treatment.
