    White leather - to clean or not to clean?

    Hi all. I recently bought a pair of white Stan Smiths, and am totally in love with them. It's been awhile since I've regularly worn trainers and now that I'm of a certain age I've lost touch with what's the done thing in terms of maintenance.

    Should I be trying to keep them as smart and as clean as possible? If so is occasionally using white polish a stretch too far?

    Your views and advice would be greatly appreciated

    Personally I hate getting dirt on my white Converse hi-tops so try and keep them as clean as possible.

    I was hoping someone would say that! Would shoe polish be OTT though?

    Possibly yeah...I just wipe dirt off my leather trainers with a bit of wet tissue usually. If dirt starts becoming un-removable I'd put them in the washing machine.

    The canvas on the Converse can be a little more difficult to clean though.
