    Hi,
    Today I was checking shoes snob instagram and I saw a picture of corthay suede derby with a caption "patina on suede". Can someone tell me how is it possible to add patina on suede shoes? Really interested, but can't find much information on it.

    Ah I see, just a quick question after the wac gets worn off from the suede does it texture/feel goes back to normal, or becomes something like nubuck?

    No idea but I'm guessing some brushing or scotchbrite pad would bring the nap back.
