Real sneakerheads know for sure that just buying a cool pair of shoes isn't enough. In order not only to look at the new thing on the shelf of the closet, but also to walk it in the city, it is important to maintain its presentation. How to take care of these or those sneakers, you need to understand at the time of their purchase. Fortunately, for those who, like us, are not used to understanding the nuances of caring for various materials, there is a way out.

Sole Fresh is the first sneaker-dry cleaner in Russia, where your pets will be reanimated and returned from the dacha link to fashionable city parties. Moreover, you can simply leave a pair in need of restoration at one of the automatic collection points in your city and pick up the finished result in a few days.

Instructions: 3 steps on the way to clean sneakers

  3. Pick up shoes from the pickup point and buy additional products for professional shoe cleaning at home.
