BEST WAY TO KEEP YOUR SNEAKERS LOOKING FRESH
Sneakers can be quite expensive. Collecting sneakers may be the easy part but maintaining their fresh look maybe the hardest. You wouldn’t want your most priced and valued kicks to look old, don’t you?
Here are the 6 ways you can have them looking fresh always.
1. BUY A SHOE CLEANER.
Cleaning your shoes should be a must. After all, you probably spent your entire savings buying them so cleaning them up should be your priority too. Buying a premium shoe cleaner should also be in your budget. You can use your shoe cleaner together with a brush and a basin of water. Just be gentle with brushing it and as much as possible use a microfiber towel.

2. MAKE THE LACE LOOK BRAND NEW AGAIN
If you have white laces, you can wash them with warm water and some shoe cleaner. You also have the option to wash them with detergent then put it in hot water.
3. USE A SUEDE CLEANER AND WATER REPELLENT
After cleaning, you can then spray them with stain and water repellent. This will make your shoe look good for about 7-8 months. You can do this if you have a suede or leather sneakers.
4. MAKE USE OF MAGIC ERASERS AND DRYER SHEETS
For the soles, to keep them clean, use some magic eraser. It will do wonders for your shoe. For the smell, on the other hand, use dryer sheets. Leave it overnight and it will definitely have your shoes smelling fresh.

5. BUY PREMIUM SHOE CLEANING WIPES
Never go out without them, especially if you are wearing your favorite pair of shoes. Accidents can happen. It could be mustard, hot sauce, pasta sauce or anything else that can stain your shoe. One wipe and your worries disappear.
6. STORE THEM PROPERLY
It is much more ideal if you can store them in their original shoe box rather than leaving them out in the open. If possible, store them in an enclosed environment or dust bags. But if you really want to show them off, just give them a good cleaning once every 2 weeks if you’re using the them regularly. If not, once every three weeks is okay too.
