Suede Shoe Guide
What is Suede?
Suede is a type of fuzzy leather with a napped finish. Suede is made from the underside of the animal skin, which is softer and more pliable than, though not as durable as, the outer skin layer.
How to take care of suede shoes?
Use a suede brush or block to remove the dirt or stains on your shoes.
Moisturize the suede so that the colour and lustre is restored.
When the suede is dry again, spray an even layer of impermeable / waterproof spray on the shoes.
If the stains persist, you can use a selection of suede detergent to wash them away.
Textile Shoe Guide

It is a flexible material consisting of a network of natural or artificial fibres (yarn or thread).

Textiles are formed by weaving, knitting, crocheting, knotting or tatting, felting, or braiding.
How to take care of your textile shoe?
Brush your shoes gently using a shoe brush or tooth brush.
Use, if needed, a shampoo designed for textile for a more in-depth cleanse.

Avoid running textile shoes in the washing machine, to optimize their longevity.

How to Care for Leather Shoes?

Apply leather cream to restore the beautiful and original appearance: shiny look and soft feel!

Hold each shoe above the bucket and scrub the outside, including the soles, with a brush or a sponge.
Gently dip the shoes in the water to wash off the dirt and continue scrubbing. Avoid submerging the shoes entirely.
Rinse your shoes with warm, clean water.
Use a cloth or a towel to squeeze any excess water from the shoes.
Stuff your shoes with paper or similar to preserve their shape.
