This week at Shoestring we have had a customer send in a pair of designer black shoes to us asking if we know of any way to get them looking as good as when she bought them, of course we were only too happy to help out, and we want to share just what we did with you!
What you’ll need:
Step 1) The first step was assessing the damage, unfortunately this lovely pair of Black Suede shoes looked like they had seen better days, mud, scrapes and damaged suede covered the shoe. So the first step was to try to remove as much of the excess dirt as possible. To do this we used a suede velour gum, a few simple brushes and the suede was clean although still looked worn out.
Step 2) Up next was our Suede Velour Liquid, because the shoes were black any damage to the suede can make quite sever marks, so covering this damage and repairing the Suede was a must. The liquid comes in a bottle with an application brush so we simply spread this across the shoes and waited for them to dry.
Step 3) Once the shoes had dried off the colour was looking fantastic, but the natural look of the Suede needed to be restored, luckily Woly have the perfect answer. The Woly Suede Brush is double sided, one covered in brass and the other with a rubber surface, which was perfect for restoring the natural look after a quick brush.
Step 4) Finally in our restoration plan was the customer’s request, they had mentioned that the shoes were slightly tight around the front, so we applied the Woly Suede Stretch Spray and a boot shaper of the right size to make them feel just as good as they now looked! So if you have liked reading about how to take care of your suede shoes or need any advice just comment below and someone will get back to you as soon as possible!
