    For fabric shoes, I've used peroxide bleaches to get out stubborn stains and then wash it in warm-hot water.

    White toothpaste and a damp toothbrush. A dab of toothpaste on the toothbrush. Gently brush and let it foam. Wipe off. Not gel toothpaste.

    You could try saddle soap. It is made for leather. Check out the leather cleaners and conditioners at shoe departments or stores. You want to keep them conditioned so that the leather doesn't start to crack.

    Peroxide bleaches and nail polish remover will dry out the leather. This can cause the leather to crack. Leather conditioner will keep leather soft and supple but tend to be expensive. Some experts recommend Lemon essential oil. Though the liquid has the desired conditioning qualities, it’s comparatively safer to use. After cleaning the leather, gently massage its surface with a cloth dipped in, or dampened with, 10 to 15 drops of lemon essential oil. In addition to leaving behind a fresh scent, this works to prevents cracks and promote the longevity of the leather piece.
