Suede is a material that is way more durable than what many still think. These boots are a good proof of this. A pair of very well used Red Wing boots that have been seen some heavy wear for a long time.
Now, it’s not like they look like new or anything, that wouldn’t be the case for any material that’s been through the same. But as you can see there’s really only one place of the on the toe of the right shoe where the suede is worn down a bit (regular leather would’ve been heavily scratched here for sure), otherwise it’s in good condition. When these shoes are cleaned and cared for they will look excellent again. The shoes belong to one of the owners of the awesome shoe store Lester in Gothenburg, Sweden.
