How To Clean Nike Air Zoom Tempo Next% Flyknit

The Nike Air Zoom Tempo NEXT% delivers measurable benefits to help you run more efficiently while bridging the gap between everyday training runs and racing. Using seamless construction methods, the Flyknit upper of the Tempo NEXT% is lightweight and provides a secure, breathable fit. An integrated tongue stays in place once it's tightened, while an offset lacing system allows for natural movement as you run.

The Nike Air Zoom Tempo NEXT% is also getting a collaboration with Virgil Abloh and Off-White in the near future! 

We got our hands on a worn pair to document the best way to clean them. We used our Premium Kit to clean, remove bad odor, and add a protective layer.

Step 1:

Remove the laces and use our Premium Brush to dry brush off any excess dirt that is on the shoe. You can tap the shoes together to further remove any surface level dirt. Set the laces aside as we will clean those separately later.

Step 2:

Start by spraying Sneaker Cleaner around the uppers of the shoe focusing on areas with the most dirt. Dip the Premium Brush in a container of water and start scrubbing in a circular motion. This will start to create a foam that will lift the dirt out of the material. Wipe away excess liquid and the dirt that has been lifted with a microfiber towel. You may have to repeat this process if there is still dirt in the materials. You may also want to pay attention to the inside of the shoe around the sock liner.

Step 3:

Next you will want to tackle the soles of the shoes. Follow the process in the previous step but be sure to apply more pressure with the brush on the soles. Wipe the dirt away with a microfiber towel.

Step 4:

Remove the innersoles of the shoes and follow the same cleaning process of spraying Sneaker Cleaner and scrubbing with a wet brush. Wipe away the excess liquid with a microfiber towel. This will remove all of that build up dirt from your runs. Once complete, set aside the innersoles as well as the shoes to dry.

Step 5:

Now you’ll move onto cleaning the laces. Cup the laces in your hand and spray Sneaker Cleaner on them, rub them together to spread the Sneaker Cleaner and then dip into a container of clean water and continue scrubbing. This will create a nice foam that will remove the dirt. Continue dipping into water and rubbing to get them crispy clean. Lastly, ring out the water and set aside to dry alongside the shoes and innersoles.

Step 6:

Once all of the components of the shoes are dry, grab your innersoles and apply our Odor Protector to the inside of the shoes as well as the innersoles. This will prevent a build up of bad bacteria that will cause unwanted odors. Place the innersoles back into the shoes.

Step 7:

Lastly, relace your sneakers and apply our Sneaker Protector to them. Spray a liberal amount of Sneaker Protector around the entire upper. This will create an invisible barrier against dirt and stains and will make cleaning in the future easier.

And there you have it; how to clean Nike Air Zoom Tempo Next% Flyknit.
