    I wish I'd have known! Broke out my Filson 257 for the first day of school today, but alas, no Aldens on my feet...

    This has probably been discussed but I can't really find a definitive answer. I really want a pair of unlined chukkas in snuff suede but I live in Seattle. I've heard that high quality full grained leather suede will hold up to the elements well as long as it is given a chance to dry. Is this generally true? I rarely find my shoes get soaked but they will get a little wet walking around and I will make sure to dry them before wearing them again (always give me shoes 24 hours in shoe trees anyway). Am I just throwing money away or getting stuck with a summer shoe here?

    They are pretty minimal. I passed on a pair due to your concerns - they would not see much action outside of summer around here. That and they kind of look like elf shoes...

    I wouldn't call them elf shoes, but they are more tapered in the toebox than other Aldens. Look at a full lace boot with a leather liner. Check J Gilbert or Alden of Carmel for something in a commando sole. Personally, I would still spray them with suede protector, but that can change the color of the shoe.
