    I have a pair of suede and leather mix wingtips. Should I polish them like normal on the leather and brush the suede? Should I apply cream only? Do I need to take these to a proffessional for cleaning? Please let me know any tricks. Thanks.

    Yes, just be careful that you don't slip up and get shoe cream on the suede parts. Use a cloth ond your fingers, rather than a brush.

    Give the shoes, suede and leather, a good coating with a suede protection spray.

    There's really no trick to this (that I know of, at any rate), just care. Use creams and waxes sparingly. I suggest using a brush for removal to make certain to get the cream/wax out of the broguing.
