Pulls/Snags on suede shoes

2038 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,

As stated before, shoes are made to be worn, and rustic shoes like these are not supposed to look new -- they should acquire a lived-in look, much like a Barbour jacket does after several years of wear. I might snip some strands that are especially long, but I'd leave them alone for the most part.
