I have this pair of suede loafers by Fratelli Borgioli. These are very elegant and comfortable. Unfortunately suede shoes are so difficoult to be preserved from dirty. In fact some days ago I went to a restaurant and a waitress poured some beer to the floor, and a few fall directly to the shoe-toe, as you can see in the pics. I tried to brush off the dirty with the proper suede brush, but I didn't obtain any result...
How can I do? Is there any product that could help me?
Thank you all

Advanced video for sure.

bigia, follow these steps:
  1. Brush wih suede brush
  2. Boil some water in a saucepan and then hold the suede shoes over the pan. The steam will make the fabric losen up and dirt will be removed a lot easier. This also brings back the darker original color of the suede.
  3. use suede spray to keep them from deing dirty again
If this does not help, wash the entire shoe and let it dry. Then do the 3 steps again.
