When it comes to boots, suede has been the favorites of most men and women. Suede is the leather that has a velvet-like napped finish. It has many benefits and disadvantages. It is softer but less durable and it is relatively cheaper than leather. Suede easily gets dirty and it also stains and absorbs liquid quickly. But by applying water and stain protector, it would be much easier to clean and maintain
Below are the top suede chukka boots for men and women of 2012 from different brands:
Clarks Desert Boots – It is actually not a surprise for this classic pair to be on this list because of its popularity and very good ratings. It comes in many colors and materials which include Oak-wood Suede and Sand Suede to mention a few. The Desert Boots is inspired by crepe-soled boots used by British officials during the World War. It looks simple and rugged and a very good value for its price.
