SUEDE SHOES

When it comes to cleaning suede shoes, the old saying ”an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” definitely applies. Treating your suede shoes with a protective spray will help to repel water and prevent stains. If the ship has already sailed, at least you will know for future reference to protect before wearing.

  • Remember to test any treatment or product on a small inconspicuous area before tackling a large stain.

  • Brush the shoe as thoroughly as you can with a suede brush. Avoid pressing too hard with the brush as it may damage the material.

  • For heavy stains, use a suede cleaning block (also called a suede eraser). The eraser will crumble as you rub it across the surface of the shoe, and it is great for removing deeply embedded dirt.

  • After cleaning, the structure of the suede can be restored by using a suede brush. Remember to brush in the natural direction of the suede. Finally use a suede conditioner to refresh the color of the suede, which also prevents the suede from drying out.

    LEATHER SHOES

    Taking care of leather shoes is not just about making your shoes look good. It is also about preserving and adding to the life of your new lovely shoes. Look at it as though you are protecting an investment, or what could be a future collectible. Leather shoes require the most care, but if you protect them well, it will expand their lifetime significantly. Follow these four steps for cleaning and maintaining your leather shoes.

    • Always spray your leather shoes before using them for the first time, this will give them the necessary protection against dirt and moist.

    • If the shoes are dirty, wipe them with a moist cloth. Never soak the shoes and do not use any chemicals to clean them.

    • Use a shoe cream/conditioner on the shoes and rub it into the leather. Choose a shoe cream instead of a shoe polish, as the cream will shine and smooth the skin, while the polish will only color it. Choose a shoe cream in a matching color with the leather. Use a natural shoe cream that can be absorbed in the leather, unlike a synthetic conditioner that merely sits on top of the surface.

    • Finally, polish the shoes. Here you can use a soft shoe brush, preferably one with natural horsehair or a shoe glove where the wool is outside the glove instead of inside.
