F.A.Q. Frequently Asked Questions

The perfect way to clean your sneakers will take a bit more time than the quickest way out described on our products. The shoe should be allowed to be impregnated and left for drying for a few days. You will need a clean Microfiber Towel – which you’ll find here on sneakidong.com in the category Sneaker Care under the menu Webshop. Here you  also will find our Superior Repellent which we recommend, if you wish a longer lasting, clean sneaker.

We will explain this process below in 10 steps:

(Tip: Use our Shoe Tree to keep the shape of your sneakers during cleaning. A Shoe Tree will also expand the surface of the sneaker, which makes it possible to get every bit of the dirt off while cleaning. Go to Shoe Tree under the menu Shop.)

    1. If your sneakers have laces – remove them.
    2. Now moisten your sneakers with clean water and put them aside
    3. Depending on the task, you give your Sneaker Cleaner a squeeze or two into a bowl. Add an appropriate amount of warm water and put in your laces to soak.
    4. Then you take your clean Microfiber Towel and your sneakers. First, you clean your sneakers surface with your Microfiber Towel, so you can remove the superficial dirt that have become detached during their moistened time.
    5. Once this is done, it is time to find your brush, that follows with the kit. If you want extra foam and fragrance, we recommended you to add a little sneaker cleaner directly onto your brush. Remember that our brush is particularly suitable for soles, so please be careful using it on fragile surfaces.
    6. We start with the sole. Dip your brush in your mixture and begin to scrub the sole thoroughly. For the best and most monotonous performance you should scrub the entire sole.
    7. Regularly use your Microfiber Towel to avoid the dirt to reaapear. Also regularly wash your Microfiber Towel and brush so you do not scrub the dirt onto your sneaker again.
    8. When you are satisfied with the sole it is time to look at the surface of the sneaker. This is often the more fragile part of the sneaker. Look at these two different surfaces as examples:

      A classic Nike Air Force 1 is not very fragile, but you should still be still cautious. Make sure that your brush is clean. For extra foam and fragrance add a little Sneaker Cleaner directly onto your brush, or dip your brush directly into the mixture and carefully move your brush in a circular motion over the surface of your sneakers. Make sure to use your Microfiber Towel over the already cleaned places from time to time. When the entire shoe is cleaned and shines like new, take a dry Microfiber Towel and dry your entire sneakers. Here you can also use a towel or something similar, but for best result, we recommend our Microfiber Towel.

      An Adidas Ultra Boost 3.0 is much more fragile. Here it is extra important to keep your brush and Microfiber Towel clean. At this kind of sneaker the surface is often made in Primeknit which is extremely fragile, and in our opinion it is not very brush-friendly. However, it is possible to run your Brush extremely gently back and forth on the dirty places in circular motions. It may be a good idea to add a little extra Sneaker Cleaner on your brush to soften the surface further. If the damage isn’t too great but the sneaker just needs the weekly cleaning, we would recommend you to combine the cleaning with our Microfiber Towel and a clean soft kitchen sponge – or similar – to clean these types of fragile surfaces. Finish the cleaning with a wipe of a clean and dry Microfiber Towel.

    9. At this time, you can take your laces up of your mixture. We recommend that you regularly change your Laces as this decorates tremendously on your new cleaned sneakers. If the damage is not too great, you can also try to put them on a flat surface and then scrub it hard with a clean brush.
    10. Your Laces and your clean – but sligthly wet sneakers – should now be put aside to dry overnight. Then you can put your Laces in and simply enjoy the sight of the shiny clean sneakers. Let yourself be overwhelmed by the satisfying feeling.The next question in this FAQ is a continuation of this question. So keep reading if you want to keep your sneakers clean for longer, with our very own Repellent.

Our Repellent is a water-based material that is gentle both to you and your sneakers. It helps your sneakers to repel water, dirt, grime and even the famous ketchup test had no chance with our Repellent.

For the best result, the Repellent should be applied immediately after the sneakers have been cleaned and preferably 3-4 times. When your sneakers have dried overnight after a good cleaning as described above, it is time to use our Repellent. With a distance of 15-20 cm from your sneakers you cover the widest area of the sneaker and in that way your Repellent lasts for longer. You would want to have your Repellent evenly distributed across your Sneakers surface. When you are sure you’ve got Repellent evenly distributed across your sneakers, you put them aside for 20 minutes and then repeat the process 3-4 times.

Of course, you can also take the quick way out, if you just need to get ready for the evening city tour. In this case, you give your sneakers a quick cleaning to get off the worst dirt and then you use the above method – only, you do it with only a single round. The full process of 3-4 times is preferable and recommended and should in any case be made the next day.

Now you are ready to simply jump in your sneakers, and you don’t even have to worry about weather nor terrain. But – everyting in moderation!

Of course, this depends on several factors. But let us take Yezzy’s 750 boot that is used for everyday use both indoors and outdoors, as an example. This boot is made of premium suede and is therefore ideal for our Repellent. In this case, we recommend giving them the full treatment with 3-4 rounds of our Repellent every five weeks.
Of course this depends on the use of the sneakers and the material it is made of. But if you repeat every 4-5 weeks, you should be home safe.

What makes SneakiDong Microfiber Towels far more efficient than any other normal kitchen cloth are the thousands and thousands of microfibers that has been put together in a tightly woven network on both sides of the cloth. These fibers are thinner than human hair and therefore have the ability to get into the smallest spaces and gaps, which is all over your sneakers surfaces’. Everything from visible dirt to microscopically small particles is trapped in the cloths enormous network of fibers.

By the way, the SneakiDong Microfiber Towel can be machine-washed by as much as 60 degrees – thereby making it reusable and economical.

If the question is regarding the SneakiDong Superior Sneaker Cleaner and the SneakiDong Superior Repellent, then yes – they can. There are of course surfaces, where you should be more careful.
Let’s take a look at our Sneaker Cleaner Kit. It can be used on any surface, but there are materials that are more fragile than others. For example, you must be extra careful on surfaces such as cotton nets, primeknit, suede and first class leather. This is mainly due to our brush, which is perfect for cleaning stubborn dirt and soles, but can be rough on more fragile surfaces. We recommend that you always find softer alternatives for this, such as our very own SneakiDong Microfiber Towel.
Always clean your shoes and sneakers with respect and good consideration. Thank you!

Our Repellent makes no damage to any surface, but it needs uneven surfaces that can absorb the material and cause it to stick to the shoe or sneaker. Therefore our Repellent is highly effective on surfaces such as cotton mesh, suede, canvas and such, but needless on highly polished patent leather shoes and such.

The general meaning of our Shoe Tree is to keep the shape of your sneakers when not in use. Even though we clearly recognize the feeling of wanting to wear all of your sneakers at the same time – this is simply just not possible. A Shoe Tree will make sure that your sneakers do not collapse over time and it will keep them fit and flashy. And also, they make sure, that your proud collection of sneakers appear neatly on their shelves. In our opinion the shoe tree should be a fixture in the collection of every Sneakerhead.

We are also proud to say that our Shoe Tree is made of 2nd quality wood. This does not affect the quality the least, but you may just find that your Shoe Tree comes with a small tassel or the like, giving the product a more rustic and personal look. They are made of wood that too many others in the industry would let go to waste. To ignore all of this tree is in our view not an acceptable way to treat our planet. By using SneakiDong Shoe Tree we do a small difference for the forests and trees of the planet.

Be a Champ – respect our world!
