Mixed Material

    Mix Material shoes can be tricky. The most popular combination we see are leather or canvas uppers accented with Suede. Sometimes rubber accents or mesh/knit sections are featured, too! So how do you get those bad boys squeaky clean? With TLC, of course.

    Mixed Material Sneakers We Love: 

    • NIKE- Air Max 270
    • VANS- Sk8-Hi

    Be sure to spot test all brushes and cleaners on an inconspicuous area before coating the entire shoe.

    ** First, identify which materials are used on your shoe. Take special note of details like thin suede accents that may be surrounding edges of the sneaker.

    1. Remove Laces. To clean your laces, go here.
    2. Wipe away loose dirt and debris with an X Ultrasoft Microfiber Towel.
    3. Add 1 pump of X Sneaker Cleaner onto X Midsole Brush.

      NEED TO CLEAN BOTTOM SOLES?: See our special guide here.

    4. Begin brushing portions of sole attached to the upper with back-and forth motion using medium pressure. Be mindful of upper material.

      XPERT TIP: If your sneaker has areas of the outer soles that are too narrow for a brush, Apply a half pump of X Sneaker Cleaner to X Microfiber Towel. Gently wipe narrow areas using fingertip to apply pressure.

    5.  Use clean side of X Ultrasoft Microfiber Towel to wipe off the foamy cleaner. Set towel aside.
    For Leather, Nylon, or Flat Synthetic Sections:
    1. Apply 1 pump of X Sneaker Cleaner to a clean X Ultrasoft Microfiber Cloth.
    2. Apply medium pressure with your fingertip, use small circular motions.
    3. Wipe away excess foam with a clean section of Microfiber towel.
    4. Allow shoes to dry.
    5. Dab X Sneaker Dauber into FootFitter Shoe Cream, then apply to sneaker using a soft circular motion.
    6. Allow Shoe Cream to absorb into material for 5 minutes before buffing away with a clean X Ultrasoft Microfiber Cloth.
    For Suede Sections: Be all suede sections are completely dry before care
    1. Use X Suede & Nubuck Eraser to gently rub over stains and scuffs. Repeat as needed.
    2. If stains remain, brush away all Eraser particles.
    3. Apply half pump of X Sneaker Cleaner to a clean X Ultrasoft Microfiber Cloth.

      XPERT TIP: Some colored suede may bleed when in contact with liquid cleaner. Slight color transfer to your cloth is expected. Do NOT saturate the cloth with cleaner.

    4. Apply light pressure to stain. Increase pressure if necessary. Use your judgement and be mindful of surrounding materials to prevent color transfer.
    5. Allow Suede sections to air dry.
    6. Once completely dry, gently brush over with X Suede & Nubuck Eraser to revive nap.
    For Knit or Mesh Sections:
    1. Apply half pump of X Sneaker Cleaner to X Detailing Dauber.
    2. Use small circular motions to gently brush over knit or mesh areas.
    3. Allow treated areas to air dry.
    For Rubber Accents:
    1. Apply 1 pump of X Sneaker Cleaner to clean X Ultrasoft Microfiber Cloth.
    2. Wipe over rubber using gentle pressure.
    3. Use a circular buffing motion if rubber is scuffed.
