    Don't use windex. Use a damp cloth and some mild detergent if you must. But seriously, these are white sneakers dude. Unless you are hiphop, you don't want them to look too white.

    Assuming you're talking about regular leather, not suede, a mixture of about 15:1 water to woolite is a good solution for cleaning it. This is what auto detailers use on leather upholstery in cars, and it works quite well. Suede is a different issue entirely - I can't help you there.

    Lincoln EZ cleaner should do it.
