Ah, suede, is there any other fabric that feels almost better than it looks? Suede clearly has a lot going for it sartorially speaking, but moreso than any other fabric, it needs regular TLC to keep it happy. So before you take those suede sneakers or loafers outdoors pay attention to the below steps.
1. If your suede shoes have any surface dirt on them, cleaning them with a brush (a specialist suede one) is your first port of call. Brush your suede throughly in all directions to lose any unwelcome passengers.
2. Stains on your suede a little more stubborn? You'll need a suede cleaning block which - through gentle abrasion - will wear away persistent marks. Words of warning; be gentle.
3. Suede should always be protected, whether fresh from the box or freshly cleaned. For this you'll need a suede spray, which you should apply from a distance of about 10cm. Go easy to avoid your suede shoes' soft nap getting over-immersed.Note: Regularly apply suede protector as necessary and it will act as a barrier between would-be strains and your shoes. Ideal.
