Style FAQ: How should I take care of suede and leather shoes?

HOW SHOULD I TAKE CARE OF SUEDE AND LEATHER SHOES? suede shoes are in a category of their own: they look great, but maintaining them can be utterly frustrating. Use a suede eraser (a brick of crumbly rubber) to attend to blemishes and a suede brush to restore the fuzz or “nap” of the material.



you can also protect suede from damp weather and humidity using a protective spray. Normal leather shoes, on the other hand, are more durable than their suede cousins, especially because you can polish away blemishes with a brush and some quality polish. otherwise, for all quality leather kicks, you should invest in a shoe tree, which will significantly prolong the life of your shoes and help maintain their intended shape. another factor to keep in mind is to keep them in a proper shoe box or rack to ensure their longevity.
