Suede shoes – nothing to be afraid of


Suede shoes. Don’t be afraid of suede shoes.

Pictured here is a pair of Dominique Saint Paul ready to wear full brogue suede shoes, Goodyear welted construction, the uppers made with mix of hand coloured crust leather and sand coloured full grain suede from Italy.

Many customers are afraid of suede shoes.

There is no need to worry.

A good quality full grain suede will be tough and durable and withstand the rain.

In case the shoes are wet simply leave them to dry in normal room temperature for one day stuffed with some old newspaper.

Then when dry just give the suede a light brush with a clean horsehair brush – all done.

Our collection of 25 styles of dress Goodyear welted and other casual shoes are available in both ready to wear and made to order.

When the customer opts for our made to order programme he will have the choice of 13 sizes with 5 width fittings in each size.

Aside from this made to order shoes are made with our premium leather sourced from an artisan tannery in Florence, Italy.
