I'm a shoe expert… the three hacks that will keep your favourite trainers look and smell brand new | The Sun

A SHOE whizz has revealed how you can keep your favourite trainers looking brand new.

Trainers can be an absolute headache to clean, especially if the material makes them not suitable for a quick and easy wash in the machine.

Luckily, there are ways to keep them in a pristine condition, according to one sneaker enthusiast, from the USA, who goes by @where_Kev_At on TikTok.

The streetwear fan, who regularly shares trendy sneaker finds and shopping hauls, took it social media to share his expertise and favourite cleaning hacks.

''If can't buy your insoles and you're like me, what you're gonna do is you're gonna take some tape.

''You're gonna cover whichever part of the insole you wanna cover.''

He went on to explain: ''This is gonna keep your insoles fresh for years and it's gonna last a lifetime – trust me.''

Whilst for most people the state of the sole is of little importance, die-hard sneaker fans know how essential it is to keep the bottom of the trainers squeaky clean.

''Next, we're talking about soles. Now, I have a pair of sole protectors on these 11s [Nike Jordan 11] and honestly, you can tell how much dirt and stuff would've gone on the sole if I didn't have it.

''I like to keep my pairs fresh cause look what happens if you don't; look, eww,'' Kev said whilst zooming in a dirty shoe full of marks.
