A fake internet kiss will go to the person who identifies the owner of the song that is my post title.

In the meantime, does anyone know how to get denim stains and water spots out of suede???

Oooo....Morrisey. One of my favorite Brit artists.

*puts on chapstick and puckers*

I'm more than a little jealous. The shoes are just fucking hot. But unfortunately, I'm not sure how to get stains and water spots out.

yes, you take it to the dry cleaners...preferably some who speak english and emphasize the importance of the immaculateness of the shoes. and throw money at them.

not even sure about that one. What did you do? But, I will say, shampoo gets out most of my sports related travesties - like blood and grass, etc. made to get out all protein build-up (off your hair) but, now, I'm using it for everything. good luck - those are too cute of shoes to call a time of death yet on 'em

morrisey is a treasure - nice call!

I'd definitely go the dry-cleaning route. I wouldn't want to get suede wet and soapy.

Cute shoes, btw.

You should buy the book Talking Dirty Laundry with the Queen of Clean. I have yet to find a stain or laundry issue that book can't conquer.

Just about anything you read on cleaning suede/leather recommends professional treatment, and I would concur. Cute shoes, btw. Oh yeah. Go 'Skins.

Sage advice everyone, thanks.

The travesty is that I pre-treated the hell out of these shoes. Then they sat in my closet for 2 months. I broke them out for the occasional event. Leave it to the NYC street sludge to do them in.

Lady, those shoes look tired.

Throw them away and go out and buy a pair of Manolos!

Boy - I've only had them for 6 months!! Every girl needs some sporty shoes for running errands, eastern market outings, dashing from police, etc. Though I am well qualified and skilled at running in high-heels, the Pumas make it a little easier.

Remember the Easy Spirit commercial with the women playing basketball in high-heels????

The Mr. Clean stain block thinger (I can't think of the actual trademark name, and given the amount or red wine and "Trading Spouses" I've consumed this evening, googling it could only lead to a very bad place). It rocks the house--got the stains left by my cheap ass purple chair off of my od walls, AND newsprint off of my white cords.

at the Alexandria Shoe Repair & Luggage Service shop (124 N. Fayette in Old Town) they sell suede cleaner, and i think they can revive your sneaks for a fee, as well. FABULOUS place for resurrecting any of your leather goods.
