- To protect suede from external factors (direct sunlight, moisture, dryness, heat), it is necessary to use special aquaphobic sprays.
Prevention should be carried out immediately after purchase, observing the following rules:
In case of moisture, dirt after applying a hydrophobic agent, just wipe the shoes with a special brush with a soft nubuck pile.
For suede care is NOT ALLOWED:
- Clean suede before application. If the suede was wet, allow time to dry;
- Apply the spray evenly on the entire surface of the shoe;
- Wait for the full impregnation with the product for 24 hours;
Before removing suede shoes for the “next season” in the box, you need to treat the pair with a special tool, insert pad inside
or tightly stuffed with paper.
Colored suede shoes cannot be dyed. Observing all the rules of care and maintenance, you will extend the life of your couple.
After the acquisition, it is advisable to put prevention on the sole. This will help protect the sole from abrasion, deformation and moisture,
as well as avoid more expensive repairs in the future.
Suede shoes soften and take the form of the foot over time after wearing. If the pair is a bit tight, keep in mind that suede is stretched
only up to a maximum width of 5 mm.
- To wear wet and poorly dried shoes to prevent deformation and stretching. Full drying of suede is 20 hours;
- To dry suede under a battery or near an open flame. Only natural drying. It is better to use special dryers;
- To use leather products containing alcohol, acetone, or benzene.
Manufacturers of shoes made from natural materials sew a piece of leather or suede on the inside.
Due to this shoes do not slip and do not rub when walking.
However, if moisture (sweat, rain) has got on this area, this can lead to staining (color transfer of shoes to the skin of the foot).
In this case, we recommend that you repair your shoes and treat the suede with a professional color lock for suede.
