I'm one of those people that has to keep things perfect, I can't wear them if they are scuffed or stained etc.
Are there any amazing treatments or magic water shields I can buy ?
Thank you

I have a suede brush and sealer spray. Before wearing them for the first time they get a 2 good coats of the sealer. Clean and brushed regularly and sealer renewed.

I use this method on all my suede items and many of them are still going strong.

They only one I have had a problem with was a suede jacket that got a sticker slapped on it angry by some silly women. I have never been able to get the adhesive off but now wear it with a over sized brooch wink

Treatment spray (on everything suede and leather) when first buy before I use them. Then they are brushed and put back in the box after use, other shoes/boots cleaned and put back into my shoe closet.

Whereabouts are you? I also have a shoe genius who collects and repairs/cleans any shoes and bags I need and they come back like new. He's amazing, works for a lot of fashion houses and you can post to him too. I can give you his details if that helps.

What boots were you thinking of? I have quite a few pairs of OTK, the Stuart Weitzmans are good and comfy. I like them with a midi dress or knit dress for going out in the autumn/winter.

I use a suede protector with colour and suede brush. Have had a pair of Stuart Weitzmans for years and they still look good.

Property - could you share the details of the shoe genius smile?

I'm in brum, I was looking at the Ted and muffy ones, I've seen the SW ones and they are out of my league completely unfortunately

As everyone else says - spray at least once before first use, and for shoes in regular use I brush and spray every couple of weeks, same as I would polish leather ones. My Stuart Weitzman OTK boots have been done each time they've been worn, but it's been wet both times!

Sure, I've just messaged you his details.

Piss - have you seen the Clarks ones? They've got good reviews

Clarke go up to a size 8, so I have to pay an extra £100 for half a show size up

Shoe not show 🙈

Yeah, as above - protector and suede brush. I also have some sort of sandpaper block thing from R&B which brings my SWs up nicely.

Someone on here suggested treating with nikwax before wear, as hardier than regular suede spray. I bought some for my new boots but haven't tried it yet....
