Shoe Care & Cleaning Instructions

Suede is celebrated for being very soft and supple leather. Due to its textured nature and open pores, suede may become dirty and quickly absorb liquids. Below are tips to help you protect your new Autumn & April shoes, or tend to shoes that have encountered the natural elements that come with wear and tear.

Protecting your footwear

Prevent water spots and oil stains with any ScotchguardTM product. Simply spray on and allow two hours to dry. We recommend two applications before wearing for the first time, then monthly treatments depending on how often your footwear is worn.

Cleaning your Footwear

Use an Emery board and toothbrush or suede brush to loosen dirt. Use a soft clean cloth and very gently rub the dirty area with gentle baby shampoo. If that doesn’t get the area clean, you can also try isopropyl alcohol. You may see the color from the shoes come off onto the rag slightly. Just be sure not to rub hard enough to remove the color dye entirely. Stuff the toe with tissue paper (to help maintain its shape) and let air dry away from sunlight.
