cleaning vans is kind of lame but if you really want to...

canvas vans. tie them up in a pillow case and put them in the gentle cycle in the washing machine. air dry them outside.

suede parts. no really good way yo clean suede. best way is to use really fine sand paper on the scuffed parts. water and suede are not a good combo.

leather parts. any regular shoe cleaner will work just fine. nothing special about vans leather.

vulc sole. anything gritty and a toothbrush. ajax, toothpaste, whatever.

you have to admit though, some are just TOO good to keep dirty. I dont give a shit about any of my vans getting dirty EXCEPT my Kicks/Hi Chukkas. Those I refuse to get dingy.

With my HC wanders, I use Jason Markk on the vulc sole, the just brush the suede with a dry towel to get any dirt, etc. off. Works fine.

...but if you really want to clean them...rubbing alcohol on a paper towel or cotton ball works on the white soles
