Wouldn’t get the white sole again. Abit better once it dirties up.

Is that the morflex sole? If so, how do you find them? I got a pair of my dad's boots resoled with them and they looked like they might wear out easily.

I’d say shite. Don’t wear easily though. Just slippy in ice or rain. Zero grip.

What’s the best way to clean up black suede loafers with disco dirt on them ?

This works wonders on Suede. Let it dry and then give a good brush

I recommend these brushes as well, look harsh but suede is tougher than you may think.

Got a pair of boots which fit 1 or 2 sizes big, any recommendations on which insoles to buy, and what size? I'm a UK7 and these fit perhaps a 9, and I can't work out the basic principal of which size to purchase.

If you buy a size too big an insole would definitely help, but can't see how you are going to feel comfortable with boots two size too big. May be thick socks ?

They feel fine on regardless, just think insoles would make it less noticeable that they're bigger I assume? But yeah I always wear thick socks too.

I'm probably over thinking this just since I'm bored and looking for random stuff to purchase.

Dr Marten Comfort Insoles are pretty chunky and fill up plenty of space.

Late to the party and they're a bit outdoorsy looking but I have a pair of these in some boots that were about a size too big and they work really well.

Anyone able to recommend replacement laces for Clark Wallabees (Maple suede) please? I’ve just got a pair and the laces have blue aglets on them.
