THE BENEFITS OF SUEDE SHOES

Why do women's shoes benefit from this luxurious material? Suede plays a crucial role in defining comfort and timeless elegance. Renowned for its luxurious feel and elegant appearance, suede offers many advantages, making it a popular choice for us at Emmy London and footwear enthusiasts.

1. LUXURIOUS APPEARANCE

Suede exudes an air of sophistication and luxury unmatched by many other materials. Its velvety texture and matte finish give women's shoes a high-end look that can elevate any outfit, whether casual or formal. The richness of suede's appearance is unique, making it a go-to choice for those who appreciate elegance in every step they take.

2. VERSATILITY

Whether it's classic courts, sky-high show stoppers, or flat pumps, suede can be crafted into a wide range of shoe styles, making it a versatile choice for women who love the richness of colour suede provides but desire a broad selection of silhouettes in their shoedrobe. Light-colour suede shades can be dyed a darker colour thanks to the absorbency of the texture. This is a sustainable way to shop: buy less, wear more. (Top tip - If you'd like to dye your suede shoes, don't spray them with a protective spray as it seals the surface.)

3. COMFORT

One of the standout features of suede is its softness and flexibility, making it a comfortable option for shoemaking. Women who prioritise comfort in their shoes will appreciate the supple feel of suede against their skin, allowing them to walk easily and confidently throughout the day.

Top tip: To speed the softening process of suede shoes, especially if you have wider feet or bunions. have a hot bath or shower, dry your feet, pop a stocking on, and wear your shoes around the house for 20 minutes. The heat speeds up the suede moulding to the shape of your feet.

4. DURABILITY

Contrary to popular belief, suede is a durable material that withstands regular wear and tear. With proper care and maintenance, suede shoes can last a long time, making them a wise investment for women who value quality and longevity in their footwear. I recommend using a cleaning block called a Woly Block for your suede shoes. This acts like a pommel stone for your suede, removing grass stains, dirt, and scuffs. I suggest leaving suede shoes to dry naturally if you get caught in the rain.
