After a time of almost not touching them, I have spent around 10 days (I think 12) wearing the anticato siennas every day and abusing them. I have been under heavy rain with them a couple times and they hold up very well - in fact, you would probably not even notice a difference with respect to my last pictures, maybe a bit of dirt on the sole I didn't clean up well but that's it.So we’ve all had these for a few months so far. How is everyone’s wear and tear doing on the v1?
On the other hand, my gf's experience with the roos has been a bit different: they were holding up well and were reportedly extremely comfortable, until we got caught in a heavy storm and the shoes got pretty wet. Now the leather coating is peeling off in the tongue area, probably due to the friction with the laces... This is pretty bad luck, especially considering that the shoes were a v1.5 so to speak and were a bit newer than my v1s.
The leather still behaves well and the peeled zone is not that easy to see under the laces but in light of these recent events I would suggest getting some uncoated roo leather for next iterations if possible! Although yes yes, you shouldn't get your leather shoes super soaked, that is well known and please take special care of your roos - the other ones you can take care of with some renovateur or something, but once the coating is gone on these ones, it's gone. If it gets worse, I might think of removing it altogether as somebody already did since, structurally, the shoes are unscathed and still very comfortable.
I was thinking of uploading new pics of the still good-looking anticatos but trust me, they are pretty much unchanged if anything, the shades have gained a bit of character which I could anyway not capture with my poor camera skills.
