Red Moose on How to Care for Your Sneakers
Whether you call them sneakers, tennis shoes, gym shoes or anything in between, your kicks need the same TLC as your dress shoes in order to extend their life and keep you looking sharp.
Treat the shoes immediately between taking the shoes out of the box and putting them on for the first time, use Red Moose Water and Stain Repellant spray to prevent water and stain damage from the get go. It works on leather, suede and fabric.
Nothing will funk up your sneakers like going barefoot in them. Not only will socks keep that fresh smell for your kicks, but you can show off your style or creativity with a fun pair of socks to complement your sneakers as well.
Treat Stains Immediately
Check your shoes before you put them back in the closet for dirt or other stains. They can be spot cleaned with a microfiber cloth before those stains set in and cause lasting damage.
Replace the Laces
Due to the fabric they're made of, laces are going to appear worn and dirty before your shoes do, but they give the entire package a dull look. Swapping out your laces is akin to a facelift for your kicks.
Wash and Bleach at Your Own Risk
Experts recommend not putting sneakers in the washing machine, and bleach can also do more harm than good when it comes to cleaning sneakers. Red Moose Sneaker Cleaner will do a much better job.
Use a Toothbrush
Apply Red Moose's sneaker cleaner with a toothbrush to get inside those nooks and crannies that many sneakers have.
Keeping your sneakers in the closet in the box or in dust bags is best for the shoe, and put a dryer sheet in each one to keep them smelling fresh. You won't want to store them where they will be exposed to sunlight, as the shoes' colors can fade over time from the sun's rays.
