  Q: Should I clean suede / nubuck shoes with water only?

  A: updated (20/03/2012)

No you shouldn't. Suede and nubuck are two of the hardest materials to maintain, and do require professional cleaning products. Typically, for more serious jobs, cleaning products comes in two categories for suede and nubuck,

  1. Cleaning
  2. Renovation

Cleaning products are usually not colour specific, so will work on any shade of tan for suede and nubuck. Renovation products, on the other hand, are usually colour specific - usually black, cream or brown. If you are particularly fond of your suede item, then you may wish to get it professionally dry cleaned. For basic cleaning, a suede brush can remove the majority of minor stains and dirt.
