Growing up I did have some white sneakers, but more often than not my sneakers had logos/designs on them. What I’m saying is that I’ve never really owned pure white sneakers.
My mom always told me, “White sneakers never stay clean.” Other times she was more straight forward, “You are a slob and you’ll never take care of them.”
Well, before Halloween 2009, I decided to dress as Jerry Seinfeld (which was a costume that received mixed reviews).
Part of the outfit is wearing white sneakers, which I purchased particularly for Halloween. Since Halloween, I’ve worked these sneakers into my regular rotation of footwear (I own more pieces of footwear than most women….ok I don’t)
The point is this —- I’ve managed to keep these sneakers in pretty damn good shape through regular shining-ups.
Don’t ever doubt me again Mom!
