1. Jason Markk shoe brush

As a first step, it is important to remove loose dirt from the outsole, midsole and upper. This is best done using a soft and hard shoe brush.

For this, we first recommend Jason Markk's standard shoe brush. This synthetic brush is ideal for general cleaning and stubborn stains.

Planning to clean premium leather, suede, cotton or other delicate materials? Then be extra careful and meticulous! For these materials, we recommend using Jason Markk's premium shoe polishing brush. This brush has softer hog bristles that are extra suitable for use on fragile materials.

2. Cleaning wipes - Crepe Protect and Jason Markk

Cleaning wipes are an alternative to the shoe brush. These wipes have a double texture, allowing for quick, rough cleaning. The convenient size of the pack also makes them ideal to keep in your pocket, bag, suitcase, and so on! After all, you never know when you might need one.

There are many cleaning wipes available from different brands. Whether you take the wipes from Crep Protect or Jason Markk doesn't really matter. We recommend both. In addition, you can choose between sets of different quantities, ranging from 3 to 32 cleaning wipes.

3. Jason Markk Premium Deep Cleaner

The polishing can really begin when you have the Jason Markk Premium Deep Cleaner. This shoe cleaner easily removes dirt from the uppers and soles, regardless of the material, such as leather, suede, synthetic and textile.

Moreover, the solution consists of a whopping 98.3% natural and biodegradable ingredients, without any harsh chemicals that can damage your sneakers. Besides, the content of a 236 ml bottle is enough for up to 200 pairs of shoes! Just a few drops are enough for optimal cleaning.

4. Jason Markk (micro)fibre cloth

Once you have cleaned your sneakers with the shoe cleaner and brushes, use a microfibre cloth to remove any remaining detergents and moisture. This will give your shoes a flawless finish and give them the shine they deserve!

For this, we recommend the Jason Markk Premium Microfibre Towel. This fibre towel offers an extremely absorbent, quick-drying, lint-free and non-abrasive design, making it perfect for wiping away excess liquids from shoes.

Moreover, the cloth can be safely washed in the washing machine (without fabric softener), without compromising its quality!

5. Crepe Protect Mark On Pen

After you have worn your sneaker for a while, you will notice that your midsole begins to discolour. You will notice that they can quickly turn a yellow hue. Especially for white shoes (but also black shoes), there is a cleaning product, namely the Crep Protect Mark On Pen.

With the 4 mm round tip of the Mark On Pen, you easily and very precisely restore the appearance of the midsole of your white shoes. It also allows you to customise the appearance of the midsole, by designing your own patterns!

6. Water and stain protection spray

Having just given your kicks a full cleaning, you naturally hope they stay clean for as long as possible. Even though you can never eliminate it 100%, you can protect your shoes from most dirt.

With a water- and stain-protecting spray, you make sure dirt is less likely to affect your shoes. Totally ideal when you want to wear white trainers on a rainy day or to a festival!

Several brands offer a protective spray for your sneakers. Below, we have highlighted our top three:

7. Crep Protect Pill - Shoe refresher

The final step in the cleaning process is to give your shoes a fresh scent. The perfect product for this is the Crep Protect Pill. This pill from Crep Protect will keep your shoes wonderfully fresh! All you have to do is twist open the capsules and place them in your shoes. Then leave the shoe fresheners in place for as long as you like. After use, you can easily close them again.

The capsules contain Zeolite, Nshield a refreshing perfume, ensuring you have sneakers that are not only clean, but smell good too!
