    Is there a way to lighten the color of suede shoes?

    I recently bought a dark brown suede loafer online, and it appears that the color of the shoe is a bit darker than I hope it'd be. For ordinary calf shoes, you could use cream of darker shade to make it darker. But what can you do for suede shoes? Also, is it possible to make the color...

    Suede Shoes - What Season?

    Just a curiosity, do you guys wear suede shoes all year round? Or just during the cold season? Are suede shoes out of place in summer or with warm weather in general?

    Restoring faded suede shoes?

    I have a pair of dark brown suede shoes that are getting pretty light toward the toe area. What's the best way to go about restoring / darkening them back to the original color (same as the rest of the shoe)? They are worn enough that my simple brushing doesn't work. Is there an alternative?

    how to fix "hairy" suede shoes?

    i got caught in the rain in a pair of snuff suede alden chukkas a couple weeks back in nyc (live in san francisco and forgot how unpredictable east coast weather can be). they looked/felt a little worse for wear after drying out, so i tried brushing them with a nylon-bristle suede brush bought...

    suede shoes - post 'em here!

They are the perfect complement for flannel or tweed trousers, and I think they will make a great summer shoe as well. I thought I'd start a thread for suede appreciation Please post your pics (or pics of...

    What happens when suede gets wet?

    I always hear that you can't wear suede shoes in the rain. Or someone says "well, you can wear them once " What is it that makes leather work boots different than suede dress shoes? Is the leather treated with stronger water repellants?
