Sophia had always loved her suede shoes. They were a beautiful shade of deep red, and she loved the way they looked with her favourite jeans. But today, as she walked through the muddy streets on her way to work, she couldn't help but feel a sense of despair as she watched the once pristine suede become caked in dirt and grime. It can be challenging to keep suede shoes looking clean and fresh. Whether you live in a rainy climate, a snowy region, or a dry environment, water and everyday wear can take a toll on your suede shoes. But don't worry, Trèsolz has a solution! Our genuine suede Poppy flats and Alexis-Rose booties are made to withstand the elements and everyday use. Plus, with a few simple tools and steps, you can keep your Trèsolz suede shoes looking their best.
What You'll Need:
- Trèsolz suede shoes (like the Poppy flats or Alexis-Rose booties)
- Suede brush or stiff-bristled brush (like a toothbrush)
- Eraser (suede/nubuck erasers work best)
- Water and soap mixture or suede cleaner
- Waterproof spray
- Use the eraser to treat stains, then brush the suede along the grain with the brush.
- If the stain doesn't come off, mix water and soap in a 2:1 ratio and apply to the stain. Brush in circles and press hard. The suede may darken in colour, but don't worry, this is normal.
- Rinse the suede with water and brush until no more soapy suds remain. Shake the shoe to remove excess water.
- Blot the shoe to absorb any remaining moisture and stuff it with newspaper to help maintain its shape. Allow the shoes to dry for about 24 hours.
- Once the shoes are clean and dry, brush them again along the grain. Then, apply a waterproof spray and let the shoes dry for another hour.
- If you'd like, you can use a conditioner on your suede shoes about once a month. This will help keep them soft and supple.
- To extend the life of your Trèsolz shoes, make sure to alternate wearing them and follow these steps every few weeks to keep them looking their best. With Trèsolz, you can enjoy stylish, high-quality suede shoes without worrying about the weather or everyday wear.
