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 sneaker 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.
This largely depends on just how dirty the sneakers are and if they had been treated with a bottle of our Sneaker Protector first. On average one bottle of Sneaker Cleaner (50ml/1.7 Fl oz) will provide 250 sprays. We suggest 5-10 sprays per sneaker, per cleaning.
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 Odor Protector on dozens of materials, we suggest you do a spot test on a small part of the sneaker before use.
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 or dirty sneakers a bit of love, start with Sneaker Cleaner and finish with our Sneaker Protector and Odor Protector. Use our Sneaker Wipes and Leather Wipes to keep your sneakers clean and protected respectively while you’re on the go.
Absolutely! We recommend using Sneaker Protector on new sneakers to keep them looking fresh and stain-free. Leather Care will do the same for leather sneakers.
Give each sneaker 5-10 sprays, depending on how dirty they are, and let the solution set for at least 2 minutes. Dip our Premium Brush in a bowl of clean water and brush until the solution foams. (NB. Do not use water on suede). After brushing, wipe your sneakers down with our super-absorbent Microfiber Towel to remove any excess solution and/or dirt.
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 sneakers and spray 5-10 times to cover the entire sneaker. For leather sneakers, apply a small amount of Leather Care to our Microfiber Towel and rub it into your sneakers in a circular motion. This will moisturise and protect the leather to prolong the life of your sneakers.
Sneaker LAB Odor Protector works best when used at the end of the day and when sneakers are left to air overnight. This gives the odor-eliminating bacteria time to really work. Spray the insole and inside of each sneaker several times and leave to dry for at least 15 minutes.
The convenient wipes were designed to keep your sneakers 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 respectively. Use the Sneaker Wipes to clean on-the-go and use the Leather Wipes to quickly treat your leather sneakers to protect and nourish them.
Sneaker LAB’s 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.
