Sick Kicks bro, White on white is so clean. I would love to hear your advice on how to keep these kicks clean, any tips ? Thanks in advance


Thanks Marvin.
I have added a video that works you through how to clean the white vans.
Some people use bleach. That turns it yellow. So you may want to avoid the method that uses bleach.
The method above may not make the shoe looks as it’s brand new. Anyway, that’s expected for any white shoe.
Hope that helps. Let me know if you need anything else


I really like the white style of the shoe. It makes it really look cool. Do people use this shoe to play basketball? It kind of looks like some would! Thanks.


Some people might but it’s more popular as skate and lifestyle sneaker.


It is a good review. Good information about the product. When I need, I will definitely consider it.


That is a sweet looking shoe. It is great to see them many people consider it comfortable as that is one of the main things I look for in a shoe. Vans seems to always come through with quality products.
