I used to own an Onitsuka Mexico 66, but i never clean it and wore it everyday. It was super seasoned until it gave way and threw away.

Should we clean our white sneakers or leave it seasoned and battered?
I've done a search on 'clean sneakers', I realised that many here wish to wear clean sneakers.
Just wondering, is there any reason to keep our white sneakers clean?

Depends on the shoes, if it's an all white pair of AF1's leave em' and buy it a new pair. Now if it's some Lux' AF1's clean em' and rock them some more. blinkyeyes

Yeah I clean em', Foot Locker foaming shoe cleaner works great, just ran out.

Suede cleaner, they sell it at Foot Locker and such. It doesn't work quite as well as leather cleaner but it'll do something for you, the suede loses some color though, my red suede Jordan 21's have lost some of their redness on paper towels when I clean em'.

hm...doesn't Vans looks better in seasoned state? IMO i categorize Vans and Converse to the same style, only different design. The more seasoned they are, the better looking. blushing

I really want to keep all of my sneakers fresh. White sneakers definitely need to stay clean.

Clean
Keep em as clean as possible, the traditional way though, soap, water, and a toothbrush. None of that crappy sneaker cleaner stuff.
