How to Care for Your Alexander McQueen X Puma Sneakers
When it comes to maintaining the box-fresh appearance of your Alexander McQueen X Puma sneakers, we recommend storing them in their original box and ideally with a dust bag.
Most of the collaboration’s sneakers are made from leather, with some featuring suede or fabric panels. We would advise spot cleaning them by wiping away superficial marks with a damp cloth. You can use a specialist cleaner and apply it with a shoe brush, or a toothbrush on more delicate suede panels.
Allow your sneakers to dry naturally once cleaned, and spray with a stain and water repellent to help protect the premium leather and suede.
