Naturalizer asked: Why did you choose this?
- M: "Comfort and style"
- Christine: "I wanted an alternative to black when I wear grey and charcoal colored pants."
Debbie asked: I ordered the grey shale leather penny loafer. It has like suede on the sides, but then the toe and back are like it is rubbed off. Didn't know if they were supposed to be that way or are they defective?
- Su-Ju: "Dear Debbie, I bought the black leather Fire. The whole shoe is made of leather, no suede. The front and back of the shoes are in good condition with no sign of wearing. I don't know if the grey shale Fire is supposed to be partly suede. The back end of the shoes is like the picture, with the lower part covered with rubber sole. I hope this answers your question."
- Kathryn: "That's the way mine are, too. They also seem to run small. I can't wear mine with socks, only trouser socks, knee highs, or barefooted."
- Marilyn: "There is no suede on my shoes at all. The leather is consistent. Yours definitely sound defective to me."
- yvette: "I believe that your shoes are defective"
- Beverly: "I have not worn them I have to return them because they are way to wide for me!. Sorry"
- Jolene: "Debbie, Mine were all leather and brown but it seems to me that suede should be all over. did you check all the pictures before you bought?"
- C: "I think they are supposed to be that way. I have a pair of suede tie Naturalizer's, and I noticed the same thing you describe when I first got them. I think they put something on them to protect and make the suede more water resistant."
- Marygrace: "I can not provide an accurate answer since the style that I bought is all leather. I think it may look like your shoes have rubbed off portions considering the nature of its suede material. This is my two cents opinion."
- Beverly: "I ordered the black leather so it is hard for me to answer this appropriately. Mine were not rubbed off when I received them."
