    Are the Alden + Context Roy Snuff Suede Boots suitable for warmer months? It wasn't clear to me from the description if they were unlined.

    I love my unlined suede PTBs for comfort in the summer. I love my cordovan boots, but they get too hot. I was wondering if the snuff suede Roys would be a little cooler.

    Thanks for the advice!

    Send them an email to check if they are unlined. They are very helpful.

    Gotta make hay while the sun is shining. Got a lot of work to get done in a short time frame. The overtime pay doesn't hurt, either...[​IMG]

    Exactly! I'll keep it stashed away till something major gets released!

    hefner, I love my cordovan boots too, even in the summer. I've found that the key to happy feet while wearing cordovan boots in the summer is picking the right socks. I stay away from cotton socks because when cotton gets damp it stay damp. Very fine merino wool is super comfortable all day long, but some people just can't wear it. A couple years ago I needed some new socks for golf and discovered a fabric that doesn't itch, is really soft and cushiony, wicks away moisture and never feels damp, and is tough as nails. Bamboo my friend is a plant people have been making cloths out of forever. More expensive than a bag of socks from Wal-mart, but cheaper than your Italian wools and cashmere.

    Ended up buying these cigar gunboats of eBay. My size is pretty rare. I just started wearing them around the house without the laces. They feel a bit tight, but hopefully they will stretch enough.

    They need some Mac love to get that good shine. Should I apply Renovateur or Cordovan creme to them before paste wax?

    Just a word of caution...shell does not stretch like calf leather.

    I wouldn't apply any cream or wax. Just the mac method.

    I bought them used off eBay. Seller said they were bought in 2010 and have been worn approx 20 times.

    I, personally, would just try the Mac method first and see how they look/feel. Wax would be my last resort.
