    Hey,

    What a product do you suggest to keep white sneakers clean and maintain the bright white?

    Thanks

    If they're canvas, then the combination of bleach + washing machine is unbeatable.

    I used to repaint my Stan Smiths with that white nurse shoe paint from Kiwi, but it has a matte finish so it wouldn't work on the normal finish leather of most non-sport sneakers. No idea on those ones.

    The White Touch Up Paint from Shoe M-G-K works really well on sneakers.

    Also, the cleaner/conditioner product is great for all types of leather shoes, from casual to formal.

    I've had pretty good success with jason markk shoe cleaner. It's a bit pricey though

    second on the jason markks, its amazing i swear by this stuff
    i have about 30+ pairs of sneakers, this stuff has never failed me yet
    if ur gonna use it on suede tho, buy the soft bristle brush, it works like a charm [​IMG]
    but with smooth leather the regular bristle will do
    also the magic eraser is nice, but be careful it is strong enough to remove the paint from the leather so dont rub too much or too hard
    same with acetone, it will eat the finish and paint, dont use very often only on really bad stains (it works fairly well on indigo stains too but like i said be careful)

    I think the 'fresher' image of clean white sneaks have thier place with certain outfits over a grungy worn-in pair.

    I throw my canvas, nylon or leather sneakers in the wash in cold water and air dry them. I sometimes add a little bleach. They look great!

    Go get the waterproof sneaker protector from footlocker (or footaction, finishline, etc) and spray your shoes before you wear them (including the soles). Then whenever it gets dirty, use mr. clean's magic eraser.
