its been 3 weeks with my 4.3s and they are getting a little dirty on the lower parts of the outer midsole as the courts here are not that clean

so how do you guys clean your shoes? i cant stand watching my beloved courtballistecs with those little dark stains ( they are just too beautiful all whiteish with that blue and green)

Also washing your tennis shoes will get your Man Card revoked.....

If I'm playing a new opponent, the first thing I notices are his shoes. Dirt=miles=willing to grind=tough opponent.

My friend who is going pro once told me "you tell if a guy/girl is bad if they don't have markings on there shoe"

Oh yeah you should get a jgoods sneaker restoration kit or magicrub.

Or you can what most fellas do on this forum, which I don't recommend...throw them into the washer...

Just let them dry and rotate them. They shouldn't be too wretched before they need to be retired anyway.

Any of your big box sporting goods stores or footlocker should have this foaming wash and brush to help keep them clean if it's absolutely necessary that your shoes be clean.

Used to use Dow Bathroom spray cleaner and just wiped it off for white shoes. Buy navy or black shoes now, just wipe clean or OMG, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_f2O-Q59CU
