What makes Sneaker LAB different from other shoe care products?

At Sneaker LAB, we’re about the Future of Sneaker Care. Our products are environmentally friendly and biodegradable and our packaging is recyclable. We are one of the only shoe care brands to be Green Tag certified (Global Green Tag is the most trusted, globally recognized eco-label). Our products are made from biotechnology solutions (rather than harsh chemicals) that clean and protect your sneakers at a microscopic level for up to 3 days after application. Giving back is also important to us, which is why we partner with green initiatives and community projects across the world.

How many pairs of shoes does each bottle clean?

This largely depends on just how dirty the shoes were and if they had been treated with a bottle of our Sneaker Protector first. On average one bottle of Sneaker Cleaner will provide 250 sprays. We suggest 5-10 sprays per shoe, per cleaning.

Which products do I use on which material/fabric?

Sneaker LAB’s Leather Care and Leather Wipes can only be used on leather. The rest of our products are safe to use on most materials including canvas, nubuck, mesh, suede and leather. While we’ve successfully tested our Sneaker Wipes, Sneaker Cleaner, Sneaker Protector and Odour Protector on dozens of materials, we suggest you do a spot test on a small part of the shoe before use.

What order do I use Sneaker LAB products in?

Keep your new sneakers fresh by applying Sneaker Protector and/or Leather Care to protect them. The formula helps to protect and strengthen the material, prevent stains and makes cleaning them in the future a lot easier. To give older sneakers a bit of love, start with Sneaker Cleaner and finish with our Sneaker Protector and Odour Protector. Use our Sneaker Wipes and Leather Wipes to keep your sneakers clean and protected while you’re on the go.

Can I use Sneaker LAB products on new shoes?

Absolutely! We recommend using Sneaker Protector on new sneakers to keep them looking fresh and scuff-free. Leather Care will do the same for leather shoes.

How do I use Sneaker LAB Cleaner?

Give each shoe 5-10 sprays, depending on how dirty they are, and let the solution set for at least 2 minutes. Dip our Premium Bamboo Brush in a bowl of clean water and brush until the solution foams. (NB. Do not use water on suede). After brushing, wipe your shoes down with our super-absorbent microfiber towel to remove any excess solution and/or dirt.

How do I use Sneaker LAB Protector and/or Leather Care?

Protect your sneakers from light stains by creating an invisible dirt-repelling barrier with Sneaker LAB Protector. To apply, hold the bottle about 15cm/6in away from your shoe and spray 5-10 times to cover the entire sneaker. For leather shoes, apply a small amount of Leather Care to our Microfiber Towel and rub it into your shoes in a circular motion. This will moisturise and protect the leather to prolong the life of your shoes.

How do I use Odour Protector?

Sneaker LAB Odour Protector works best when used at the end of the day and when sneakers are left to air overnight. This gives the odour-eliminating bacteria time to really work. Spray the insole and inside of each shoe several times and leave to dry for at least 15 minutes.

What are the Sneaker Wipes and Leather Wipes for?

The convenient wipes were designed to keep your shoes looking fresh on-the-go between full cleans. Our Sneaker Wipes and Leather Wipes contain the same solutions found in our Sneaker Cleaner and Leather Care. Use them to wipe down your shoes or spot treat any problem areas by wiping in a circular motion.

Why do I need your Microfiber Towel?

Sneaker LABs Microfiber Towels were designed specifically for sneaker care. The fibers on the towel are 20% finer than human hair, making them incredibly soft and absorbent so you can gently clean dirt and dust off any material (including leather) while drying heavily saturated or damp sneakers.
