Caring for yourClark's footwearwill not only prolong the life of your shoes, but will keep them looking in tip-top condition for longer. Here are a few key steps you can take to look after your favorite leather footwear.
Use a damp cloth to remove soiling then let dry naturally - never on top of a radiator, next to the oven, near the fireplace - just somewhere at room temperature.
Use a colored polish that matches your shoe color to restore any damaged areas, filling in the scuffed away spots .
Use a good leather cream - this acts like a moisturizer for your shoes but with added benefits, again helping to build up a protective barrier.
Use a shoe-protecting product to build up a protective barrier, this way, your shoes will last longer!
THE SHOEMAKER"S TOP TIP
To get a really good shine use a damp cloth when polishing leather shoes. Once the cloth starts to 'grip', stop polishing, let the shoe dry naturally, then buff with a dry cloth. Repeat until your achieve the level of shine you want. All shoes will benefit from a shoe-tree, especially leather shoes which have been wet as the tree will help maintain a good shape.

I don't think you're going to get bleach stains "out". The bleach has removed the tanning in the leather and it's not coming back. Have you tried polishing them with the same, or similar colored shoe polish like Ki Wi (sp?) shoe polish? if not, maybe a cobbler can tan them with products he has?
I dont fully understand what you are saying. If you used a cleaner and the shoes are not the same colour now, then they are not colourfast. Putting some shoe cream (like Meltonian) of that colour back on will fix it.
What I would recommend is a shoe cleaner. Try THIS cleaner, they have suede cleaner conditioner and leather lotion. They get great reviews and can help keep your shoes clean and new looking. You can always use a waterproofer so that next time the dogs **** does not stain. You can find everything you would need on the ECCO shoe website. Next time have a cleaner so you can take care of the stain right away.
Considering everything that we might step in during the day, it's a wonder that we bring our shoes into our homes at all. Cleaning our shoes not only gets all that grime back out the door, but it makes the shoes look better and last longe Instructions
Things You'll Need:
Nylon bristle brush
Pencil erasers or fine sandpaper
Leather cleaner or saddle soap
Shoe polishing cloths
Clean smooth leather shoes by first removing the laces and giving them a vigorous brushing with a shoe brush.
Clean salt stains from shoes by mixing equal parts white vinegar and water and dampening a small cloth. Use the cloth to scrub the stained area. For suede or nubuck, use a nylon bristle brush.
Use leather cleaner or saddle soap to clean the leather with a soft cloth. Pay particular attention to the seams.
Clean suede or nubuck with a pencil eraser or fine sandpaper, then rub with a bath towel to bring up the nap again.
Apply leather conditioner to all leather shoes, taking care to use the correct kind for smooth leather or suede. Conditioner keeps your shoe leather soft.
Waterproof your shoes.
Polish your shoes to help protect them and to give them a clean-looking gloss.
Deodorize your shoes by sprinkling a generous amount of baking soda into them and shaking the shoes to distribute it inside. Let stand overnight, and then shake the baking soda out
For leather, you will need to apply leather cleaner. It may need to polish your shoes several time, but it will work. I would recommend going to your local tack shop (horse outfitters store) and buying leather cleaner for saddles. It lathers nicely, and leaves a nice silky soft finish. It will also improve the texture and life of your shoes.
I don't know what to recommend for suede.
Hope this helps.
