Footlocker is selling a pretty hefty instant-shoe-clean product in a can (similar to shaving foam) with a plastic brush as lid. That sh*t cleans up anything fast!

Superstars are indeed super...

Denim bleed? Depends on what material it is, very difficult to get out though.

In future gaffer tape the inside of the seam

Wishing it was like the old days again

with your lack of detail should we assume you mean your shoes are getting sad?

you might try airing them out? maybe wearing better socks? do something about your athlete's foot?

i'm thinking 'gaffer tape' is either the same as the north american electrician's tape (black vinyl tape) or duct tape.

I suppose hockey tape might also work.

Streak, I recommended the Magic Eraser to a girl at work because she got denim bleed on some new white adidas. She said that it took a while to be delivered, but it shifted the stains right out!
I have to get some of this stuff, as it is quite literally the mutts nuts!Laughing
