Sneaker care (white)

I just bought these shoes (link at the end of this post). These are my first pair of white sneakers and I'm afraid of them getting dirty really fast. I know theres shoe cleaning stuff out there but does anyone know of whats best for sneakers (any personal experience)? Isn't there some time of protector stuff that I spray on these shoes to make em last longer?

I just use a moist rag and water, sometimes dish soap.

Scotchgard is the stuff you're looking for, or any other brand of the same stuff. I think the stuff I have is just called "Leather Protector" and it works just the same as the 3M stuff.

it sprays on, lasts for awhile, keeps shoes white/colorful.

edit: I really like the word stuff. Stuff.

Pull shoe strings and sock liner, toss them in the washing machine every few weeks. Cold/Cold, perm press cycles. Tumble on low. Basically reat like any other sports wear clothing.

Works well for my mizuno's anyway.

If they were made of fabric, I'd say machine wash with lots of clorox for sure, but I'm not sure how that leather/letherette would hold up.

This may be just me, but I prefer a bit of scuff/wear on shoes, gives them character. The only people with bleach white clean shoes are rappers and basketball stars.

The easiest way to keep your shoes looking nice is to pay attention to what you're walking on. As an example, walking through freshly cut grass is probably a bad idea. Stay on sidewalks/pavement/indoors as much as possible and you won't have anything to worry about.

spray with water proofing solution

clean with that water-based gel you can find at a lot of shoe stores, use a rag instead of the brush on the bottle

buy white sport polish
