We love a fresh pair of sneakers but a few weeks after they hit the city’s sidewalks, dirt visibly begins to accumulate. Whether you’re looking for a quick or deep clean, we have your soles’ back with our all natural and biodegradable Shoe Cleaner, plant-based Shoe Brush and natural microfibre Shoe Cloth.

Our team has crafted this powerful trio to keep your Air Force 1’s looking how they did during week one. Regardless, if you have five minutes or fifteen, you can visibly notice the difference in your kicks condition after some shoe care with Shoe Laundry.

Read on for the scratch the surface, but still visibly cleaner method: 
  1. If you’re not starting with your slip on Vans, remove your worn out shoe laces and soak them in 1/2 cup of warm water with three to four drops of shoe cleaner
  2. Dry brush any and all dirt from your kicks, using our Shoe Brush
  3. Apply six to eight pumps of shoe cleaner evenly to each shoe, paying special attention to areas of the sneaker with dirt, stains and scuffs
  4. Scrub the outside of your shoes with our Shoe Brush to eliminate dirt and transform the condition of your worn kicks 
  5. Wipe clean any excess shoe cleaner using our microfibre shoe cloth
  6. We haven’t forgotten about your laces! Feel free to soak them for up to one hour, then allow them to air dry, along with your fresh kicks at room temperature 

Seeking a deeper clean…? You’re in the right place! Let’s be honest, there is nothing worse than being embarrassed to take your shoes off because of the way they smell. They can look fresh, but if they reek like dirty feet, it’s going to be a ‘no’ from us along with the rest of the world. 

Read on for the significantly cleaner, from the inside out method: 
  1. Remove your worn out shoe laces and soak them in 1/2 cup of warm water with three to four drops of shoe cleaner
  2. Remove the insoles from your sneakers and soak them in one cup of warm water with five to seven drops of shoe cleaner(if insoles are not removable, you’re doomed/ skip this step)
  3. Apply shoe cleaner directly to our Shoe Brush for a deeper clean and scrub 360 around the inside of each shoe
  4. Wipe clean any excess shoe cleaner using our microfibre shoe cloth
  5. Again, we didn’t forget about your laces and insoles! Feel free to soak them both for up to one hour, then allow them to air dry, along with your fresh kicks at room temperature

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and
easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

  1. asdads

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
