How to keep your kicks looking fresh
You just picked up a pair of the hottest new Nikes from Jimmy Jazz, and you scuffed them on the first day you wore them. So how are you going to keep them looking fresh all season long? Here's a few tips to make them look brand new.
Everyone has a different technique for cleaning sneakers: Drake rapped on his latest album that he uses a toothbrush on his Air Jordans, while Nas revealed in "Hope" that he soaked his shoelaces in soap and water. If you're more of a traditionalist, Complex magazine recommends using a mixture of 70 percent dish soap and 30 percent purified water to brush the outsoles clean.
The news source suggested using a Mr. Clean eraser to remove any marks on a white midsole. Are your sneaks starting to smell? Airing them out usually works, but if they're still funky, place them in a covered box with baking soda.
Peanut butter can also do wonders, as ridiculous as it sounds - Complex noted that the oils can give plastic on sneaker trims a supreme shine.
