    Use a suede brush as needed and avoid nasty winter weather.

    All over I think depending on the price/line.
    TBH I couldn't give a shit as long as they don't fall apart in the first few weeks...

    I'll see how they wear, re-sole is £50.

    Cross-post from, well, pretty much everywhere [​IMG]. Forgive me if you've already seen these, and perhaps more than once. But as I've gone from having no suede shoes to two pair in one shot, I thought they should be included in this thread. Both Carmina:

    A pair of To Boot New York shoes that I bought years ago. They were off-white but after 3 wears I realized that I am allergic to white shoes. I saved them by dying them brown [​IMG]

    Just a heads up for those who like/want to protect your suede shoes and boots, my son bought some suede protect for his suede training shoes and the stuff below really works!! Try staining with all sorts of liquids and it just wasn't having it !! Everything just rolled off from wine to olive oil !!!!!

    As an aside I have no links whatsoever to the company, I'm merely someone using the product with excellent results !! :slayer:

    Love the loden suede - and the sole and laces are a lovely complimentary colour. Outstanding.

    Cross-post from the John Lobb thread:

    My first pair of Lobb's has arrived. MTO through the Jermyn street store. They fit like a glove and the suede is amazing!
