Denim, corduroy, canvas, and suede on one sneaker! These Concept Air Max 1s looked like they were buried in a mud puddle when we first saw them, but stay to the end to see how well these tricky materials cleaned up.

After the mud was brushed off it was much easier to see the different materials, colors and patters that could be found on these Air Max 1s, but there were still some deeper stains on the denim portions of this sneaker. This shoe in particular had the potential to bleed color, to fade, and even a slight chance that these wouldn’t come clean at all.

We started with dry brushing to remove the loose mud and dirt before getting to the deeper cleaning method. We cleaned the entire uppers using the Soft and Medium Bristle brush. Both of these brushes are delicate enough to clean those materials. Once that was out of the way we needed to finish the job with the Stiff Bristle Brush.

The pretreatment was complete and it was now time to wash the sneaker in the laundry system. Luckily these materials responded great to the washing process and there was no issues with the cleaning process. We washed these on a normal cycle with cold water then allowed them to dry.

Overall these sneakers cleaned up great! The mixed materials had a chance to cause some issues, but with someone like Vick Almighty behind the cleaning there is no reason it wouldn’t be successful!

Compressor to blow off the remaining Dust we took out the laces and insole we Insert our shoe tree we're ready to go Now that we got all the mud completely Off the shoe we know exactly what we're Working with overall the shoe isn't Totally bad the meno and so have average Grime and dirt that'll clean up nicely My biggest focus is going to be two Different parts the first one being is This tongue there's a lot of marks on it We're going to have to do a lot of Scrubbing and same thing with this denim Toe boox and side panel we're going have To do a lot of scrubbing using the Medium bristle brush first let's squ Some squirts of our solution inside our Bowl of Water two of course is all you need now The first brush we're going to be using Is a soft bristle brush we're going to Go in a circular motion all around the Sneaker and set it now to start breaking Down all the grime and Dirt the reason why I use a soft bristle Brush in the beginning of all my Cleanings is because it's the brush that Creates the most SS and because this Brush is the safest to use on the Majority of materials on the sneaker Specifically we have horsehair material We have canvas we have denim we have Corduroy the soft bristle brush or Medium bristle brush are the only

Brushes you want to use on this [Music] Shoe All right so far so good we got a lot of Those stains out of the denim it's still A little rough I can still see a lot of Grime so we're going to be using the Medium bristle brush to give the whole Upper a good Scrub following the soft bristle brush The medium bristle brush also does a Great job of taking care of those deep Stains on the shoe without damaging the Materials it's also great for taking Care of plastic rubber and minil the one Thing I never use the medium Bristal Brush for is the tongue tags the Majority of tongue tags are pretty Delicate with small embroidered details If you scrub too hard it'll spray [Music] It all done with the medium Bristal Brush this shoe looks so good I did a Lot of scrubbing on the denim Specifically and the tongue and it made A big difference that denim is looking a Lot better it's back to its blue tone Originally it was pretty brown and same Thing with this tongue it was covered in Marks black marks specifically Throughout the entire tongue if you move These Suds you can definitely tell it's Back to Brown now let's finish off this Cleaning by using the Z so brush to
