How To: Care For Smooth Leather Sneakers like Nike High Top Shoes
Today on the blog, we’re featuring Justine, X Sneaker Care affiliate and well-known sneaker aficionado. Justine has a m̶i̶l̶d̶ major shoe obsession and an equally strong sentiment to keep them looking clean. We all know how exciting it is to adventure in our shoes and get a little dirty, but - just like spring cleaning, it always feels good to refresh and revitalize your shoes every now and then.Justine started with one of her favorite pairs of Nike high tops that had seen brighter days. Now these shoes do have a lot of white area, which we know is hard to keep clean. And although X Sneaker Care makes the perfect cleaner for white shoes, for this particular pair with patches of color, we recommend using the X Smooth Leather & High Shine Sneaker Cleaner Kit for this particular type of shoe.
