You can also use more universal products to clean sneakers or textile or leather shoes. Cocciné Nano series is one of the most advanced and effective products on the market. Developed formulas with nanoparticles are marked by quality and effectiveness. They have also been created considering quick and safe shoe cleaning.
SUEDE FROM A TO Z
What about suede? Let’s start from scratch – before we start cleaning suede shoes with products, the first soiling should be removed “dry”. Suede is a specific material, be careful with cleaning it and pressure on the shoe surface. You will find a lot of materials promoting “natural methods” of shoe cleaning, e.g. with bread crust, but remember – only professional products and accessories guarantee effectiveness and safety of your shoes. Their production is not only art for art’s sake, here come years of experience and research on the effectiveness of fighting dirt. That is why thicker dirt is removed with a suede and nubuck brush or Cocciné Nubuck Sponge, followed by a rubber Cocciné Cleaning Cube if necessary.
it’s time to protect your shoes for… another winter, or autumn. That’s right, do it now. Why? First of all, to prolong the life of your shoes – well cleaned and protected they will last for a long time. Secondly, when winter comes, the shoes will be ready to wear straight out of the closet.
