For those who owns white golf shoes and those who borders..how do you keep your shoes white?
Washing with water alone doesn't work well..waxing does help but not perfect.
Any special cleaner?

for leather shoes, you can use leather cleaners. the same type that is use to clean leather sofas or even leather seats in your vehicles.

Turtle Wax Leather Care or Zymol Leather Cleaner works for me.

I was told that Kiwi is actually not too good for leathers, it should be Mink oil. Mink Oil can last longer and give it a protective quote.

Better let the arm boys reply....they are better at shoes cleaning and polishing Smile

You could swing by Daiso. They sell athletic shoes shampoo... Made in Japan. Pretty fancy for the grand price of $2 Smile

It works like a charm... but if ur worried or ur leather is abit softer (using TM shoes)
might wanna consider using toothpaste!!! Works just as good and leaves ur shoes
with a minty smell!!!

Use about a 5-10 cent coin size of JIF for the whole shoe + a toothbrush... remember to dilute it with water
when brushing... So far no abrasions on mine...
