Question:

Can one brush off snow from suede boots on Shabbos? They will be damaged otherwise.

Answer:

Although suede looks like leather, the poskim (Shimiras Shabbos Khilchoso 15-41, Orchos Shabbos 13-19) consider it like other garments. Therefore if the snow is fresh and it didn’t start melting yet, it can be brushed off lightly.

Best wishes
