    In the rainy UK, is suede a viable option (especially for autumn or even winter)? I've heard people say that if you live in a rainy country, it's best to stick with leather. However I really want a pair of suede boots because they look quite n i c e. I don't want to cry because I spent £100 on a good quality pair of suede boots to have them ruined by dirt or a puddle or rain.

    I currently work for a shoe retailer and was very skeptical on suede boots. But after working there for 2 winter seasons they're just so pretty and I now have 3 pairs of black suede boots. I've bought shoe care for them. A spray I spray on them after every 3-4 wears and if it rains then the water just rolls right off it. I also have a suede brush I can brush off any dirt. You can also get some cleaner for them for the more stubborn stains.

    I own two pairs of suede chelsea boots.. Usually spray them with crep protect and they're fine, I don't wear them when I know it's going to rain heavily, but I've been caught out in the rain with them and theres no lasting marks/stains.
    I've a dark grey pair and a tan pair of Common Projects, they've held up fine and they look great.
