NuShoe Elements were created to achieve specific results on specific materials. There are many ways to clean a sneaker, but we've created a NU way of shoe cleaning.

Remove aged yellowing on fabrics, leathers, plastics and more. Clean suede and nubuck without the use of tap water, revitalize the vibrant suede, and restore the suede luster.

Which shoe cleaner do I choose?

First, identify what materials you are cleaning. Choose the right solution for the specific material and the right tool for the specific surface.

3 Step Suede Cleaning Process

Take your time in this stage. This is the most important part of the process and will require patience. The key things you will be doing in this step is removing as much dirt as possible and softening the suede.

1. Use Nylon Bristle Brush/ Hog Bristle Brush to gently brush away any surface layer debris.

2. Use the gradient side of the Dual Sided Eraser to remove any surface layer dirt. 

Evenly eraser each panel of the shoe to ensure that you are getting a consistent even cleaning.

3. Use the rubber side of the 4 Way Crepe Brush to soften the suede and remove dirt.
