Caring for White Shoes

I was in Montreal a lil while ago at my grandmother's and unravelled my old crisp white uptowns. Needless to say, the top was relatively white but the soles had turned into a yellow-beige color :( 🤬 looked disgusting SMMFH. For that reason, for a while I've refrained from predominantly white shoes unless I'm gon rock it a few times and dash em.

How the hell do yall keep ya white shoes staying WHITE ??? What are some tips yall use to prevent that ??

Also how the hell do yall prevent your white shoes from creasing ?? (if that's even possible)

Any help and assistance would be appreciated..... anything is plenty mang.

    Toothpaste and warm/hot water and a toothbrush to scrub. Then use soap (hand soap is cool) and scrub w/ toothbrush again. Try to use a white toothpaste and a clear liquid soap. 3rd, to maximize it, get white shoe cleaner (kiwi squeeze with foam top) apply it afterwards. Use a cloth/paper towel to get off any overage of application.

    This method is used for preserving ya kicks in between wears. As far as your situation, I haven't had that problem, but I haven't bought up town's in years and when I was rockin'em I knew the were only good for about 5-7 wears max. If your jus gonna have'em sitting b4 sportin', keep'em in the box and put masking tape around the soles/bottoms of the shoe, that should help from the discoloration.

    As far as the creases, I know they sell those decrease shoe inserts, but I've never used them. This is why I haven't bought 1's in 4eva and a day. If u want way less crease, go SB's, preferably high top.

    I bought actual white shoe paint and a paintbrush. They look good as new. You can't get the paint for cheap on ebay.

    Keep em clean when u wear wn.
    For long term storage, you can get the plastic show containers. Put the pack of silica gel in there with them too to keep them from yellowing
