Road salt has stained some suede shoes of mine. Is there a trick to
getting the salt stains removed. I've already determined that the
solution is to not wear them in winter, but I'm afraid I'm a bit late.

Logically, a rinse with distilled water might be helpful, as it would
leave no residue behind. And you might even find help in an old
fashioned shoe repair shop should you be lucky enough to have one in
There is no cure for salt stains on suede. Salt stains on (some) smooth
leather can be removed by vinegar (and abundant polish thereafter) but
vinegar is mild acid likely by itself to discolour suede leather.

Just a thought, and I dont know if this will work, but if they can
withstand the wettening, try a power washer on them. Maybe work in
some laundry detergent first. I'd think the water and pressure would
flush it out of the leather and the detergent would help..... If you
do try this, please report back if it worked.....
