HOWEVER, I have to keep it real with my people. As a girl that has at least 10-12 pairs of suede shoes, I have to tell the truth. I have to admit suede is high maintenance (just like yours truly). It can get scuffed and unkempt if you’re not careful. You must be conscious of stains, water spots, etc. It takes hard work to be a suede lover because I don’t know about you, but I am not going to be out in the streets with raggedy shoes.
