    Suede and Nubuck Cleaning System is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Renewed my cream color suede shoes I've had a pair of suede shoes that I stopped wearing 6 years ago when I noticed dirt spots on the cream suede. I read on the internet all kinds of things about dealing with dirty suede. Rub the shoes with stale bread? Nope, doesn't work. Finally I bumped into someone's mention of a suede care kit, and thought, "I'll find one of those." I bought mine at A.E., and it's been perfect. It comes in a neat little box. An eraser like thing for rubbing off the dirt and a bristle brush for fluffing up the suede fibers again. I also bought a can of suede protection spray. I sprayed 2 coats on after cleaning and now my shoes are invincible, yet still look and feel soft. Money very well spent. Take care of your suede. Buy this kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought some suede chukkas. Needed a brush and cleaner. It’s a two piece cleaner and brush which I very much prefer. The one piece ones tend to be clumsy to me. Works well. If you own suede shoes, you need a brush and cleaner. This is a good one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dry Method Really like the eraser for removing cleaning suede and nubuck. Worked well for me and seems less likely to darken the leather than liquid cleansers.

    Is this what you recommend for your waxed suede?

    The new black waxed suede McTavish looks stunning out of the box. How do I take care of them?

    Does this work on AE smooth leather sneakers?

    I have Burke lace up shoe and have a small grease spot at the toe. It’s not suede but AE site describes it as “premium leather upper.”
    Asked by: E Man
    Thank you for your inquiry! We're truly sorry, as the information on our site is incorrect and will be addressed as soon as possible. The correct process consists of the following steps: 1. Apply Saddle Soap to clean the shoes and then Leather lotion to moisturize the leather. 2. Follow with Shoe Polish (Speed Polish, or a combination of Cream Polish and Carnauba Wax). 3. Restore the color of the edge of the sole and heel with Heel Dressing. You can find all of our care products here: https://www.allenedmonds.com/shoe-care/ We hope this information helps!

    Numok shoes. 5 yes ago date of purchase.

    These look like the current Standmok (#2900) page 31 in last consumer catalog. The difference these are wing tip. As they have aged I have used saddle soap (A&E), horse hair brush and shine cloth. I am ready to call and arrange "re-crafting" do to fact that my hope is that the "re-craft" department can strip the uppers and apply a refurbed finish. I always thought of the above mentioned Standmok as distressed leather. Thus using saddle soap for 5 years. Any ideas? Ie... dose any one else out there use saddle soap on nubuck leather? PS. I applogize in advance for grammer mistakes. I'll have to get my niece to show me how to use spell check on the new phone.
    Asked by: Mark.
    Hello, Thank you for your inquiry! The Strandmok is made with regular calfskin leather. You'll be pleased to know that you can use saddle soap on calfskin. However, we do not recommend using saddle soap on suede or nubuck leathers. -AE Consumer Care Dept.

    Shannon drive shoes

    I bought a pair of Shannon drive olive green shoes a few years ago. Will this work on them? Thanks.
    Asked by: Mike
    Yes, since the leather has a soft velvet-like surface similar to nubuck or suede, you can use this cleaning kit on that style. Feel free to contact us again if you have additional questions!

    Is this the recommended product to care for Strandmoks?

    Is this the best product to care for Strandmoks? Would anything else be recommended for them?
    Asked by: TheBoysBadNews
    Strandmok 1.0 (nubuck) = No Strandmok 2.0 (suede) = Yes I find the bristles to be very harsh on nubuck leather and prefer using crepe brushes on them instead.

    What is contained in this box (i.e. what is the "system")? Is this just a brush? How is it used, and what is it made out of?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    It is a brush (very small - about 2 to 3 inches long and 1 inch wide) plus a cleaning bar (sort of like a hard eraser).
