Suede shoes, handbags, gloves, hats and other accessories have a surface that can scuff easily and can get dirty quickly. Suede is also not simple to clean. Even if you have your suede items stain-proofed or water-proofed, they can get dirty and damaged.
If your suede clothing gets soaked, you should blot the excess water from the garment with a clean cloth towel. Allow the article to dry naturally - do not apply heat. Stuff wet suede shoes with paper so that they can hold their shape.
