Suede shoes + protector/care tips?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just got some suede sneakers and since I spent a good deal of money on them I want to make sure they stay fresh. Can anyone recommend some protector that I can spray on them, and where to buy it. Also any other shoe care tips are appreciated (I have searched but haven't found a good guide, so links are also appreciated)

I thought you just use a Scotchguard spray...available from most supermarkets...that is what I have used on my suede shoes. I feel that perhaps I should be doing something else???

Suede shoe waterproofing spray and a suede brush from any shoe repair shop.

Just use an eraser.

Like others have said, your only option to waterproof suede shoes is a silicone spray - waxes or creams will mess up the nap. Kiwi makes a decent spray that you can pick up from Target, but any silicone-based spray will work. Put a couple coats on a pair of shoes before you wear them for the first time, then brush them with a suede brush every couple weeks and add another light coat of spray after each time you wear the shoes out in the rain. And if you do get a spot for whatever reason (someone spills a drink on your shoe, for example), just take a suede eraser to it and brush it out. I have a pair of desert boots I've worn for 6 months that look pretty much new because I've been pretty good about brushing/waterproofing them. That's all there is to it.
