How To Clean Air Jordan 1

Here’s our step by step guide on how to clean leather Air Jordan 1s. We got our hands on a pair of dirty Jordan 1 Bloodlines to see how best to clean, care for and protect them.  This sneaker features a white upper with black overlays and a red trimming that matches the laces and outsole. Have a read through or watch the video at the end to find out how.

Here’s what you need to get your sneakers looking clean again. You will need our Sneaker Cleaner, Premium Brush, a container of water, Micro Fiber Towel, Sneaker WipesOdor Protector and our Leather Care

Step 1

First you will need to remove the laces and grab our Premium Brush to remove the excess dirt on the sneaker. Start the cleaning process with a Sneaker Wipe to get rid of any surface level scuffs and stains as we prepare for the deep clean. 

Step 2

Generously spray Sneaker Cleaner around the Jordan’s upper. Dip the Premium Brush in a container of water and gently scrub the uppers in a circular motion until a foam forms. Scrub around the uppers to remove the dirt and don’t be scared to apply pressure when needed, the Premium Brush won’t harm leather. Rinse the brush and reapply Sneaker Cleaner when necessary, paying attention to those hard to reach places.

Once the upper has been cleaned, you can turn your attention to the soles of the shoe. Apply Sneaker Cleaner again, with wet bristles, and apply more pressure when needed.

Once the dirt has been removed, use our microfiber towel to partially dry them off and set the sneakers aside to dry.

Step 3

Once your sneakers have been cleaned and set aside to dry you can turn your attention back to the laces. Spray Sneaker Cleaner on the laces, rub them together in your hands and dip them into water. Continue this process until your laces are well saturated and starting to look clean. You can then ring out the moisture and then let the laces dry with the sneakers.

Step 4

Once your laces and shoes are dry, lace up your kicks in preparation for applying our Odor Protector and Leather Care.

Use our Odor Protector to keep your sneakers feeling fresh for longer. If you have innersoles that are removable, spray them and the inside of your sneakers. This will fight off any unwanted odors.

Step 5

Apply Leather Care to protect and nourish your Jordans. This will keep your leather kicks looking fresher for longer. Apply Leather Care to a microfiber towel and gently massage into the material and leave to air dry.
