Why I will never wash my white sneakers

Fashion / June 10, 2019

If the world is an ideal one, I would be able to get away with white sneakers all the time. I love the comfort and the versatility.

But I don’t like the upkeep. Which is tricky as I’m also on the team which roots for pristine white all the time instead of the streetwear dirty type. It’s just a matter of preference.

My trick is to spray on and invest in sneaker care products. Rather than washing or spot cleaning your shoes, I would rather prevent the problem.

Locally, you look through Collonil for sneaker protectant such as their Sneaker White for leather shoes and Waterstop Spray.

There’s also Crepe Protect so you can travel in your white sneaks with ease.

There’s also the trick of switching out your sneakers often. if you can or if you’re really a sneakerhead, it’s totally okay to have a few pairs on rotation.
