Seek advise from an expert before attempting anything yourself.
Protect your shoe against water and dirt with a protective silicon free guard. Repeat this regularly to avoid having to clean your shoes. If you do have to clean them use a damp cloth to carefully remove dirt. Cleaning is an irreversible process and therefore, thorough consideration should be made before any such attempt.
Avoid contact with water / perfume / cleaning agent.
