    Here are some pics of the red leather case on my black 5S. I will say, that after 24 hours, I am starting to see some collection of dirt on the leather. So keep that in mind when purchasing any of the lighter colors like beige and yellow. With that said, I LOVE the look and feel of this case. Particularly the feel you get. It is hard to describe. The fit is impeccable but you'll have that when Apple is making the case intended for its own device.

    I'm really confused how so many are having issues with the red leather case and "staining"...I've now had my 5S for almost 2 weeks, and it's been in the red leather case the entire time...no special precautions taken with it, no overly careful handling...and it's still looking GREAT. It has some wear along the edges, and some matting to the material on the exterior, but to me, it's actually IMPROVING the look of the case. Even the buttons, which are easily the most wear prone areas of the case, are looking fine.

    I keep reading about how easily it stains, but I just fully disagree...I'm a freakin' cop and this thing gets put in cup holders, pockets, hands, desks, car seats, tables, couches and whatever else you'd normally see through a day, and I have no "staining" at all.

    I think what people are calling "stains" is actually the patina of the leather material developing.
    Agreed. Mine still looks great to me after about three weeks. Sure it's a bit darker on the corners but that's normal for leather. And I'm not that careful with it. I've picked it up with damp sweaty hands while exercising many times.

    Every time I see pics of the Apple case in Red I start tripping. Looks so good.

    That red does pop. I dislike the price for it though. It's a bit too high for what we are getting. Could spend same amount or less for more and better protection, have looks and screen protector.

    That's your opinion...I personally feel that for the price, there isn't another case on the market that looks better, and this one offers perfectly adequate protection without being too overbearing on the form of the phone (you'll never see me using an otterbox or lifeproof daily, I have an otterbox on my work iPhone 5, and I hate the thing).

    I got the blue and I sprayed it with leather all protector for shoes. Seems to help with some of the dirt but still allows oils to age the leather.

    I decided to go down to the Apple Store and try out this case from their stock, I ended up purchasing it. I'm absolutely loving it feels very lightweight and the grip is very good. It does feel very luxurious and is comfortable in the hand. My only complaint is the size of the holes in the bottom, I can no longer use my Apple lightning to 30 pin adapter for my dock and my headphones don't plug-in properly in the headphone jack. I found some workarounds to resolve these problems and plan on keeping this case, I have about 10 cases for my iPhone 5 and this is by far my favorite of the bunch. I went with the black after reading all of the reports on this thread about how quickly it gets dirty.

    My Logitech dock has a Aux port for audio input and I just use the Lightening cable that came with the phone and plug it into my iPad charger which I keep by my bed. I also have a Fiio headphone amp so I plug my AudioTechnica headphones into the amp and use a smaller patch cord from the amp to my iPhone which is smaller in diameter so with a little push it will fit thru the case and plug in with a good connection. I had all these things already so it was just a different way of doing things.

    I've got to say again that I am really liking this case, it doesn't really feel like a case it feels like it is part of the phone, like the phone itself has a leather back.

    I'd imagine you can, by hand, with a gentle leather cleaner.

    It's a gateway drug! Started with the blue and just bought the red.

    That's the case that I have now. But It attracts heaps of dirt. I'm thinking about getting a leather cleaner

    I started out with black on black, and it looked cool but I kinda felt like it was too damn boring lol just another black case on another black iPhone lmao so I exchanged it for a red one and can't help but look how bad *** it is - it just screams race car imo ... as if I had white, I'd opt for black or red again... just my 2 worth

    The red looks phenomenal on the white. It's my fall/winter case. The blue leather will be spring/summer. Plus now my phone and case are Team Canada colours and Senators colours. ๐Ÿ˜

    If it helps there are 4 occasions I have to root for the Laffs.

    When they play Montreal.

    It's always distasteful and I feel gross after, but I can never root for Montreal.
