Ah, summer. The season of court sneakers and canvas. While there’s no better feeling than lacing up a new pair of ice-white creps sans socks, attempting to keep them looking box-fresh can often prove something of a headache. Winter might be a distant memory, but camping expeditions and trips to the beach throw up a new kind of challenge for sneakerheads looking to keep their footwear in tip-top condition.

Before you go breaking in those new Stan Smiths, it might be worth reinforcing them with a stain resistant barrier first. Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best sneaker cleaning products and accessories. Stock up your defense arsenal and we promise you’ll be thanking us later.
