2 questions about suede shoes
I have an old pair of suede shoes-unfortunately their shape is lost.More specifically when I wear them the do not fit well on my feet,I feel the like floating.
Can I do anything to fix this problem,somehow?
They are Timberland,so I care a lot.
The other question has to do with a pair of moccasins I have.I think they have a stain in the toe(see image below) and my question is if it is possible to remove it. From a web search I made,it seems that can make the stain go away.
But I want you to see the image and hear what do you have to say about it.

Suede shoes are easy to stretched if they're too small, but harder to shrink if they're too big.
They can be shrunk by soaking them in water, but not a lot. I'm sure you can find guides to do it with a quick search, but I'm doubtful the results will be great. Then again, it might be worth a try if they're useless in their current shape.
Make sure you use a shoe tree if you try to shrink them, otherwise I think they'll lose shape completely.
