How To Care For Your Creative Recreation Sneakers
How you look after your Creative Recreation sneakers will depend on the material it is made from, but we would recommend putting any of the brand’s sneakers in the washing machine or in the tumble dryer. The repeated spinning can cause damage to the upper and the sole, and we advise following the below tips to maintain the look and feel of your sneakers instead.
• To clean mesh sneakers, use a soft brush to remove any excess dirt with light, gentle motions. Sneakers can then be washed in a small bowl, with warm water and a small amount of gentle laundry detergent. Avoid fully submerging your sneakers or using bleach, which can sometimes cause discoloration and alter the shape of the shoe. Finish by wiping down the exterior of the shoe, and allowing to air dry naturally.
• For sneakers with a suede or leather upper, we would recommend cleaning with a damp, soft cloth or spot cleaning with a specialist leather or suede cleaner. Suede sneakers can also be maintained with a suede protector spray.
- How do Creative Recreation sneakers fit?
Although the brand’s sneakers generally fit true to size, they have narrow silhouettes, so those with wider feet may want to take a size up.
- Where can I buy Creative Recreation sneakers?
Creative Recreation sneakers are available from a range of retailers, outlets and department stores on Lyst, as well as from the brand’s own website.
- Are Creative Recreation sneakers comfortable?
Creative Recreation sneakers are designed with both form and function in mind. As well as plenty of modern details, the brand’s sneakers are crafted from a range of materials that offer everything from flexibility as you walk to enhanced breathability on warmer days. The rubber soles are durable and hard-wearing yet still feel lightweight, and the dual-density cushioned footbed on some styles provide optimum comfort from within.
