keepin your kicks clean and protected :)
So since i'm overly obsessed with sneakers (Nikes, Jordans, Supras, etc.) and am constantly cleaning them and making sure they're protected, I figured I share with you guys some good tips and reviews I have on certain cleaning products =]
After using a bunch of different cleaning products, Foot Lockers brand has worked out extremely well for me! It comes with a scrub cap and sprays out into a foam. It cleans extremely well and has even got grass stains out of some of my white sneakers!
Foot Locker also makes a suede cleaner that is AMAZING! I use it on the suede on a pair of my J's and the dirt that comes off its mind blowing. It gives the suede a nice rich black color and you can even tell that it looks clean =]
As for water protection, I have a can from Footaction but I rarely use it. Mainly because I forget I have it, but when I do use it it works well. Its kind of old though so it may be time for me to see what Foot Locker has in stock.
When cleaning my sneakers I usually just use paper towels. They dont ruin the shoe even if I scrub a bit. You can also use a firm tooth brush or even a tooth pick to get it small areas that have dirt!
Now, the most recent thing i've been getting into and now buy with every pair of sneakers are Forcefields. You slide them into the toe area of your shoes and they completely stop your sneakers from creasing. They work 100%. At least they do for me. I recommend getting them with every pair! But, you must get the correct size for your shoe otherwise it will feel weird! At first you'll be able to feel the Forcefield but after a few minutes you get used to it. You can purchase Forcefields at Foot Locker and Foot Action and i'm sure at any other sneaker store.
I know most of this info is probably a no brainer for some of you guys, but I'm sure there are a few people on here who will get some new information out of this. At least thats what i'm hoping for >
Thank you for reading and if anyone has anything to add feel free to post away!!

As an admitted sneaker head myself, I always keep my kicks looking fresh. I always use the sneaker protector from Champs a few coats on a new pair and I use their cleaner as well. It is the same as foot locker, but I just picked up a new kit to keep them clean as I have heard many good things. I got the Jason Markk Premium Sneaker Solution Set and I'll let you know how it goes when I have to clean my first pair.

For white soles, I used a gummy eraser (a regular white and soft one will work) to first erase the scuffs out. Then used colgate whitening tooth paste via a toothbrush to get them back to white! Nice and day difference.

Thank you, thank you!! JDM cats here just can't/don't understand the whole "clean kicks" way of life. They spend so much ¥ getting the latest USDM kicks but in a short time they look like they worked a shift at a construction site in them.
