Suede and Nubuck leather care
Suede and Nubuck require different care than smooth leathers due to the plush velvet-like finish. These leather finishes are more prone to watermarks and stains than smooth leathers so we recommend that they are protected before wearing.
We recommend that Total Protector (waterproofing spray) is applied prior to wearing new shoes to protect effectively against water, oil and dirt. The waterproofing should be maintained by re-applying Total Protector every two to three months or as needed.
To maintain the appearance and depth of colour of suede or nubuck, we suggest using Suede Revitaliser aerosol which is pigment based spray.
A Suede/Nubuck Brush will bring the nap, or plushness, back to its original appearance and help to lift light marks from the leather.
A Cleaning Block will also erase light stains from suede or nubuck. If you have a heavier stain or would like to refresh the colour of your shoes, we recommend using Ultimate Cleanser. Pony leather should be treated the same as suede leather to protect the ‘hair-on’ aspect of the hide.
