THE best thing to do is use the original suede cleaners not these cash grab sneaker protectors. I use Kiwi. I would use the eraser and the brush...Lightly, cause it will take off the color. Crepe might have already ruined it though. I forgot to water proof my toro 18 and I spilled a drop of Aquafina on them. I’m thinking it’s just water, nope. After it dried it was a quarter size stain right on the toe box. I water proof all my suede shoes.
