There are those people who say that you shouldn’t wear suede shoes outside because it would be a waste of money if they get too wet and then don’t look good anymore. It’s not true, though. Your shoes can never stay perfectly dry, that’s just how this type of leather is.
It’s much better to just wash them right before you wear them instead of waiting around until they’re completely soaked before you wash them again and then trying to wear them for a little while after washing them. But if you want them to be nice and neat and serve you for a long time, then it’s best not to wear them in spring. That’s what I learned from my sad experience this time around.
