I have always read Suede Care to be the reverse of standard shoe care in the sense that you take care of them before you wear them!

I spray my Suedes with nano protector once a year to protect them from the elements and brush them with a stiff Suede Brush that I have. I very rarely but do have a full Saphir Shampoo kit that I have used a few times on my oldest Suedes. I followed the instructions on the bottle when I did that. And once they dried, sprayed with nano.

Hey everybody
I just received a pair of 986 in 11.5D and they are a half size big, so I unfortunately need to sell and buy the smaller size.
I am located in Australia, where these are harder to come by, so if there’s anybody ITT that is local and looking for a pair please let me know. I’m hoping to get what I paid (773USD) so that I can just buy the right size.
DM me if you’re interested

Figured I'd post some pics of my new pickup. There's been some truly amazing anniversary boots made this year for Alden stockists and these Cigar 379x plain toe boots on leather soles keep that trend going. Made to celebrate Lost & Found's 10th anniversary, I think these are going to see a lot of wear.

+1 on the Nano spray BEFORE wearing! What type of bristle is your stiff Suede Brush?

How many differences can you spot between the boots @Misterg12 is sporting today and the ones I chose? So similar, yet so different.
