Pulls/Snags on suede shoes

2039 Views 9 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  JBierly
Hi All, I have a pair of Quoddy Tukabuks in toast suede. Over time I've noticed some of the suede strands look to be snagged or pulled. In the below pics, you'll see this on the side of the shoes and by the quarters (not so bad on top).

Is this normal wear and tear for a decent quality suede? Is the only way to address these by burning them off with a lighter or is there some deeper issue I should be worrying about?

Thank you,

These are fairly casual and not overly expensive shoes so it doesn't surprise me to see this kind of wear. I think if you have higher end leather you probably won't see that kind of wear (the point is you shouldn't expect to see this on all suede - I suspect you would never see it on Nubuck for example which technically isn't suede but looks like it)
