Whether you are an avid trainer buyer who likes to stand out in bright and vibrant styles or someone who likes the classic all white designs, keeping your shoes in pristine condition is a must; no one likes to be walking around in dirty sneakers. Eager to learn some key pointers on how to keep your trainers looking fresh, crisp and in tip-top condition? Well, keep on reading, as this post will unveil all the answers.
The one tip we would recommend for cleaning any pair of trainers is to avoid the washing machine. The washing machine will be your worst enemy because it will only lead to running and discolouration of fabrics.
Gola Grandslam Trident Trainers
Our best-selling court trainer Grandslam features a crisp PU white upper. We all know white trainers are the hardest to keep clean, so in order to get the best results when cleaning white PU we would suggest get your hands on a cloth. Damp the cloth in warm soapy water and lightly wipe over the PU to remove any marks or mud.
Gola Men’s Bullet Suede
Another great classic is the Gola Bullet which incorporates a suede upper. When it comes to suede, we believe in prevention over cure, we would highly recommend buying a suede protector spray. Firstly, make sure the trainers are clean and dry, spray the protector spray from a distance and make sure you leave the spray for at least one hour before wearing your trainers. Alternatively, you can use a suede brush in order to clean suede. By nature, suede attracts dust and the beauty of a suede brush is that it removes dust and evens up the texture, making the trainer look as good as new. If you have mud on your trainers, we would highly recommend letting the mud dry and then lightly apply the suede brush to the soiled area.
Gola Women’s Harrier Leather Trident Trainers
A go-to footwear choice for many of our female customers is the black leather Harrier trainer. We would recommend keeping the Harrier style in the original box as this reduces the amount of sunlight exposed to the leather and increases its life span. Keeping Harrier stored in its original box will help prevent the leather fading and cracking.
Vegan Gola Coaster High Rainbow Drop
Gola’s ever popular Coaster Rainbow style is a classic off white canvas demi boot. A top-tip for keeping this style fresh is to use shoe inserts or newspaper to stuff into the inside of the shoe. Creasing and loss of shape are two of the biggest elements that make trainers look worn and distressed. Using shoe inserts or newspaper can help the trainer keep looking fresh and keep its original shape. When it comes to cleaning canvas the best technique is to use a damp cloth and spot clean to remove any marks.
We hope this post has helped you learn some valuable hacks for keeping your trainers looking fresh and crisp.
