Cleaning Nike Blazers | Step-by-Step Tutorial
Friends don’t let friends wear dirty Blazers.
The Nike Blazer is one of the most underrated and versatile shoes out there. And Nike has been pumping out color after color in order to please the masses. If you’re reading this, you probably own at least one pair of Blazers, or know someone that does. The classic silhouette and hundreds of color options make the Blazer a go-to shoe for everyday life.
They are easy to dress up or dress down, which makes them extremely versatile, too. But if you’re like me and you rock yours a little too much, you need an easy way to clean your Blazers when they get dirty.
Today we’re going to teach you how to clean your Blazers using the Reshoevn8r Signature Kit, which just so happens to be the best sneaker cleaning kit in the world.
This step-by-step tutorial will serve as a guide as you work on cleaning your own favorite pair of Nike Blazers.
One thing of note: some pairs of Blazers feature suede or nubuck accents. If it’s relevant to you, you should consider reading this article about using the Dry Suede Kit. The few extra steps will ensure your suede stays buttery.
Now back to our regularly scheduled cleaning…
Step 1: Insert the adjustable shoe tree (make sure it’s sized correctly) to keep the toe box from creasing, and make it easier to clean that area.
Step 2: Remove the laces. If your laces need some extra love, throw them in a separate bowl of water with two squirts of Reshoevn8r Solution to soak while you clean the rest of the shoe.
Step 3: Dip your Soft Bristle Brush in the water and solution mixture, and start to scrub the uppers of the shoe. We’re going for suds here, the more suds the better the solution will be at breaking down the dirt.
Step 5: Use the Medium Bristle Brush (which you can find in our 3 Brush Pack) to scrub down the midsole, as well as any remaining dirt on the upper that the Soft Bristle Brush couldn’t break down.
Step 6: Clean the outsole using the Stiff Bristle Brush. Be careful not to use this brush on the upper to prevent potential damage to the material. (note that some yellowing on the outsole may not come off with just the cleaning solution. Read this recent post about unyellowing soles to learn more).
Step 8: Use a pick or an exacto knife to remove any remaining dirt that may be stuck in the deeper grooves of the outsole.
Step 9: Grab your laces out of the bowl where they’ve been soaking and rub them together to clean.
Step 10: After you are done cleaning the laces, squeeze out the extra water and solution.
Step 11: Put the Blazers in the included Sneaker Laundry Bag and cinch it closed.
Step 12: Stick your laces, as well as a Sneaker Laundry Detergent Pod into the small pouch, and button it shut.
Step 13: Put them through a full cycle in the washing machine on cold.
Step 14: Pull them out of the wash and let the air dry (do NOT put them in the dryer). This will ensure that they dry evenly
Step 15: Rock your kicks!
As you can see, the Reshoevn8r Signature Kit has everything you need to deep clean your Nike Blazers.
Look good, feel good, be good. Nothing makes you feel better like a clean pair of kicks.
