Suede shoes can be very suave, but looking after them can be a nightmare especially under terrible weather conditions. This is why it’s best to invest in a silicone-based suede protector spray in the best colour match to your shoes, this way you can ensure that your suede shoes are made weather proof. Spray the suede protector on the suede upper parts of the shoe and leave to air dry and absorb the product overnight, this way you can enjoy your shoes come rain or sunshine.
How to Polish Suede Shoes
Suede is a bit different from leather and doesn’t need polishing as much as it needs cleaning. There are 3 simple steps when it comes to cleaning suede
- Use a suede brush to removed any debris of dirt that may have built up on the shoe. After you have done this use the rubber bristled side of your brush and give the suede a buff. (remember if the suede is wet allow the shoes to dry before cleaning to avoid rubbing in stains)
- Use a suede protector spray and spray all over the shoe and allow to dry. Take care not to over soak the shoe!
- To keep your suede in good shape make sure not to wear it in conditions such as rainy and snowy weather, and be weary that hot, humid weather is not ideal for suede too.
- However if you don’t have the time for any of the above you can always visit you local shoe shine stand, and let someone else do it for you.
