Start by wiping the dirt on your dress shoes with a horsehair brush to clean away the dirt and stains. Once, they’re clean enough, grab a lint-free cloth and lightly dampen the cloth with water & vinegar for better results. Give your shoes a bit of time to dry off and then condition your shoes with leather oil/conditioner for a shiny effect. Finally, grab shoe wax and finish the procedure by rubbing the wax on your already shiny shoes for a polished look. Remove the excess wax with the cloth and now your shoes will be shiny as a new penny!
Suede and nubuck – a cattle leather material shoes are versatile, classy and comfortable but man, do they get dirty quickly. This is why they require a different approach to cleaning.
