The Reimagined Royals dropped last year as a part of the “Reimagined Classics,” but some may say the ball was dropped on this one. The Royal colorway is a cult classic and following up the 2017 pair was going to be tough for this Reimagined pair. Either way whether you love them or hate them this cleaning video will help you out with any suede Jordan 1! In today’s Shoe Care Academy video Rob will teach you the best method to clean suede sneakers.

When it came to cleaning these sneakers, we weren’t sure how they were going to react. They could bleed color in multiple places whether that is from the blue or the black, but we were going to test it out for you! For this cleaning we relied heavily on the Essential Cleaning Kit. Our Essential Cleaning Kit is the perfect way to provide your sneakers with a quick and effective clean. We highly recommend this on suede, nubuck and even some leather sneakers!

To kick off the cleaning we needed to clean the entire suede sneaker evenly using the Soft Bristle Brush to breakdown the dirt, grime, grease and more that was trapped on this classic colorway. After the uppers were taken care of it was time to move over to the rest of the shoe; the midsole and the outsole! For this entire cleaning we relied on the 3 different brushes and all natural solution to condition and disinfect the materials. After the cleaning it was time to let the shoe dry and it was a waiting game to see the results…

PRO TIP: When you are drying suede or nubuck sneakers ALWAYS let them dry evenly in the sun or in front of a fan to avoid watermarking or water damage.

Once the sneaker was dry we noticed some crunchy suede and no one likes crunchy suede… Anytime you get suede wet there is a chance for it to be crunchy, but it is repairable. DON’T let this stop you from cleaning your suede sneakers. We used the Dry Suede Kit to fix this suede issue. Rob started with the eraser to erase some deeper staining before moving over to the brush to reset the nap. When you are using the suede brush you have to move the brush back and forth in multiple directions (don’t apply too much pressure).

For the last step of this cleaning we had to revive that suede. Suede has a tendency to bleed color and this can lead to fading. To fix this issue we used Mink Oil and the Horsehair Brush to not only revive the color, but also to recondition the materials and prolong the life of these beloved kicks.

Now that you know how to clean these Reimagined Classics, are you a fan or them?!
