Scotchgard may help against stains, but light colored shoes will still get dirty more easily than darker shoes. Use a suede brush

Will the suede brush rough the suede up though?

A suede brush is meant to brush away dust that may have settled on the shoes. It won't clean dirty shoes. Normal use is what its for.

Is scotchguarding or some other treatment generally recommended for suedes, or will this come at some cost to the look of the shoe (assume a very dark shoe)?

I would spray them....I have a similar color and the spray 3M I use never changed the color.

I have a couple of pairs of suede ferragamo loafers, including one pair in that same light brown. As long as you're not silly/unlucky in what you walk into, a suede brush is all the care they need.

I have found that brushing is not enough and that seude shoes need cleaning from time to time.

Shoes are exposed to an incredible amount of dust and dirt by reason of tramping on dirty city streets and dusty country trails. Even in a "clean house" there will be a good amount of dust on the floor. Just go down on the floor, and see for yourself!

I have found that my brown and black suedes have taken-on a grey hue. A cleaning at the shoemaker has freshened the appearance and has taken away the grey hue. Generally, a cleaning will both highlight and darken the color.

Good luck.

Have another pair of black ones nd after a couple of wears and idiots stepping on them they already have some whitish marks, should I brush and spray them or is this damage irreperable?
