How To Care For Your Nike Sneakers
Maintaining your Nike sneakers properly will help prolong their life, and the brand recommends the following steps to keep your sneakers looking their best for longer.
- Remove dirt from the outsole, midsole and uppers with a dry, soft-bristled brush
- Mix a small amount of laundry detergent in warm water and spot clean the soles and uppers. Laces can be washed in the same solution
- Use a soft cloth or dry microfiber cloth to dry the soles and uppers
- Allow your sneakers to air dry naturally away from direct heat
To prevent damage to your sneakers, avoid putting them in the washing machine and tumble dryer. Strong cleaning products like bleach should also not be used.
- Are Nike sneakers true to size?
Nike sneakers typically fit true to size, and we would recommend you take your normal size. Half sizes are also available in most styles.
- Does Nike make vegan sneakers?
There are some specific styles of the brand’s sneakers that do not use animal-derived materials. Nike’s Space Hippie line is vegan and as it is made from recycled trash, such as plastic water bottles and factory waste, it has the lowest carbon footprint scores of any shoe the brand has created.
Other vegan Nike sneakers include certain versions of the Free Run 7.0, Air Validus, Air Huarache Run, Air Max 90, Air Pegasus and many more.
- What are the latest Nike sneakers?
Nike’s latest releases include new innovative silhouettes enhanced with ever-developing fit technology, alongside modern reworks of some of its best-selling sneakers. Expect the Nike Air Max 2090 in fresh seasonal colorways, and limited-edition versions of the Air Jordan and Air Force 1.
You’ll find all the newest drops on the Nike website, as well as from authorized retailers and specialist sneaker sites. These can often sell out quickly, and we would advise keeping an eye on the Nike sneaker launch calendar for release dates and shopping online early on release morning.
