    CXL Indy boot the other day. About a year and a half of wear on them.

    And new sand suede PTB on the modified last. Apologies for the bad angle.

    you could get the alden suede brush and get some suede protector. i have some from obenaufs but really any brand would do. will help with dirt/smudges/stains

    You absolutely need to treat with suede protector before wearing, especially if they'll see rain. I use the AE branded Suede & Nubuck Protector in a pump spray bottle. However as was mentioned above, there are many adequate products. I have the tan Alden chukkas and the uppers look virtually new after a couple of years. That reminds me, I should re-apply a coat before the spring season.
