One thing I really wanna reccomend.
Get yourself a really soft
suede brush (100% horsehair brush, sold at any shoe-repair spot) ...Don't even think of touching your joints with the regular stiff Suede & Nubuck brushes that come with the little square bars, those are good for dark suede, but if you ever try to do it on the red suede, it'll make the suede peel
If you need to clean em up in the future. Use Sof Sole Nubuck/Suede cleaner (Finishline stores got a grip of em) with a really soft cotton cloth...Don't use the plastic cap that comes with it.
And wipe gently. After they air-dry fully...use the soft brush.
Main thing is the brush though, make sure its a soft one. They got em at shoe-repair spots and alot of big-name pharmacies (CVS, Eckerds, etc...). They're usually about 6 inches and run $5-10.
That's why I sing the blues
