How Do I Clean Scuff Marks Off A Pair Of Suede Shoes?

Suede shoes

Blue suede shoes have been a classy addition to anyone’s wardrobe for decades, in no small part because of Carl Perkins’ hit single that was later performed by Elvis Presley in the 1950’s. The singers’ concern for the wellbeing of their shoes shouldn’t be taken lightly, because suede is notoriously difficult to clean, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Here are some tips to clean out unruly scuff marks and dirt:

  • You’ll want to buy a suede-specific brush to clean your shoes. You can purchase one of these from a suede cleaning kit – oftentimes your shoe’s manufacturer will recommend a specific brand of kit for you to pick up.
  • Make sure your shoes are dry before you begin your clean. Suede is incredibly sensitive to water, and you don’t want to risk damaging them.
  • Gently brush away any dirt that’s accumulated on your shoes. Make sure you’re brushing in one direction, not back and forth.
  • Now that the dirt’s off, use the suede brush to remove any scuff marks by brushing vigorously back and forth.
  • If there are any extra stubborn areas, grab an eraser and lightly press down as you rub away at the tough spots.
  • Protect your shoes from further marks by using some suede protector spray – this step isn’t necessary, but it can keep your shoes looking tidy for longer between cleans.
