CARE OF SPORTS SHOES - SNEAKERS
The grooming of Sneakers is very important not only to maintain their good looks but also to have them for many years. Sneakers are the favorite not only for young people but also for older people because they are comfortable, relaxed and can be worn daily in almost all our activities. Many times our athletic shoes cost much more money than other regular shoes we have. So we do not like to lose their good initial appearance, nor do we even take them off in a short time, especially when they have a lot of fun. Because our activities may vary, there are athletic walking shoes, sneakers for track and field, basketball, soccer and many sports. There are also sports work shoes, but also sneakers that can be worn even with more formal garments.
What are the right products to care for my sports shoes?
The materials from which the sneakers are made are varied and vary according to the manufacturer and the functional characteristics he wants to give. For example, some are made of genuine leather, other than cloth cloth, other than nanotechnology nanoparticles such as gore-tex, microfiber, sympatex, or combinations of these. So the products of cleaning, care, care or even waterproofing of our sports shoes should be carefully chosen to be compatible with the materials with which our sports shoes are made to have the best results. First of all, we need to know the materials from which they are made so that we can choose compatible products for cleaning, care, care and waterproofing for our sports shoes. However, we do not know exactly which are the best products for treating our sports shoes but we also need to know what product we will use in each case. So we at Leather Care Land wanting to share some of our sneakers are listed below for some sports shoe care tips that we believe will help.
Tips for cleansing and treating sneakers:
In order to protect our sneakers when new, we can use protective and waterproofing sprays to avoid any irreversible odors (from water, salt, mud, coffee, oil etc), making it much easier their subsequent cleaning. Sports shoes of large but especially children's shoes can be dirty in soil, sludge and elsewhere, often difficult to clean and look like new. It is not possible every time our child turns from some sporting activity or even excursion to sit down to clean his athletic shoes. By putting a protective spray on our new sports shoes we can give them their original glow with a single pass with a damp cloth quickly and easily. We will not have to spend hours of discomfort by soaking and scrubbing the sludge and dust from them.
In order to clean our sports shoes and after we know the materials they are made of, we select the appropriate cleaner for simple daily cleaning, hand wash or washing after we have removed the cords and soles (if they come out). We should pay special attention to leather shoes that are not washed in the washing machine and only with special attention in the hand, one that the various detergents can dry their skin and create cracks.
Soles in sports shoes are one of the main parts of them only for their comfort and their appearance. It is really ugly to see sports shoes with soiled soles. Many times their cleaning may not be easy. If the white sneakers of the sneakers are not properly cleaned with generic cleaners then we should use a special white soap cleaner.
For general care and care, and when it comes to smooth skin, we use colorless creams and care lotions or re-coloring paints. When it comes to to care for a suede or nubuck we use spray or liquid, neutral or dyed, brushing before and after with a sucker brush to give them their original velvet look.
Because our athletic shoes are used in many "difficult" activities, our feet sweat in them, which often smells. This is due to the fungi created there and results in even clean feet that have just been washed if they wear these athletic shoes to smell immediately. Besides the smell of feet and shoes is unsightly, it can also cause a so-called mycosis in our legs, resulting in itching and very bad smell of our feet. Therefore, in order to avoid the visits to our podiatrist, it is advisable to provide some antifungal deodorant sports shoe spray and to use it at the beginning more often and after the problem we continue to use less use so that the problem does not occur again.
Is it necessary to treat the Sneakers?
Athletic shoes are now in all our day-to-day activities. They are comfortable, light and have their own style. They fit into many types of appearances and they also have to look beautiful and tidy. Their cost, on the other hand, is by no means insignificant. In many of them their price starts over 100-150 euros. Quite above our conventional songs! It is a shame to lose their original, beautiful appearance if their care does not cost in either time or money. There are many cleansers for sports shoes and sneaker care products that you can buy from Leather Care Land and in combination with the above tips will keep your sports shoes as new for many years!
