While you always want to start with a high quality cleaning solution, there are a couple other necessities that will keep your shoes looking crisp. For one, a towel is always good to have on hand. Typically microfiber is going to be best to not leave lint on your sneakers after you wipe them down.But the really secret weapon when it comes to sneaker cleaning is the shoe brush. A brush has been vital to keep footwear crisp for hundreds of years now. Of course, the brushes being used by shoeshines in the 19th century look a little a different than what we have nowadays, the premise is basically the same.
