Pulls/Snags on suede shoes

2065 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,

Ha, I'll stay away from the lighter then. I've gotten impatient and ripped out a loose thread or there, but that's as far as it's gotten.
Yeah, these don't have that much wear on them which is why I was concerned in the first place. But if this is the natural tendency of this kind of suede, I guess I'm not surprised that they've worn this way so far.
