    taking care of gym shoes

    Discussion started by TheVisualAssault - Sep 1, 2003

    i know a lot of you on this board are shoe collectors or just take care of your shoes. I recently (last saturday) got a new pair of adidas forum lo from my girl. On monday, my first day wearing them, i ran through some dry dirt going to the hospital cause my friend got into a car accident...anyway I don't buy shoes often (twice a year) and I've been wanting these forever and they already got bends on the front from running that one day (i just stuffed them with some newspaper). For the rubber part i used a toothbrush and some laundry detergent to clean the dirt ,and for the leather a sock and detergent. I'm trying to keep them nice for as long as i can which i do with allllll my shoes any cleaning tips or a good way to keep them clean ...thankssssss

    I dont plan to wear them as often as everyday but on a good basis to look nice

    some pics off the net of the forum lo's:

    i got those adidas joints in black hightops. They are wicked fresh. Anywhoo...If you go to foot locker, they have this spray foam shit that you put on the rubber part of the shoes. The cap has lots of small plastic bristles for all of your scrubbing needs. Wipe away with a clean cloth and your shoes will be rejuevinated to bling bling status. I dont like white shoes. They fuck up real quick like.
