    Suede tennis shoes

    I bought some Adidas suede shoes last night, ones I've wanted ever since high school almost 10 years ago (ack!)

    I remember from other people having them that you have to put something on them to protect them from the rain? One guy had his black shoes turn a strange gray/taupe color. I don't know if I'm remembering this right or not. It's been a while since I've been able to buy shoes that aren't vinyl or canvas :) Anyone know if there's something I need to put on them and what it's called?

    I got my stuff for a suede jacket at the Wilsons leather store... it was called leather and suede protector, and if you go to www.wilsonsleather.com you can order some

    you can get aerosol suede protector at sporting goods stores. it's solventy and smelly at first, but the smell dissipates.

    i have suede Pumas and i never put anything on them, and they look fine.
