In the capable and experienced hands of a sneaker cleaning service, your most treasured kicks will look (nearly) brand new again

The pricier your sneakers, the more care it takes to keep them pristine. While you can try to clean them up on your own at home, tough stains and built-up grime may need the ministrations of a professional.

These five sneaker cleaning specialists located in and around the Klang Valley will get your kicks to look (and smell) as fresh as new. They can also provide your ‘babies’ with protection from rain, refurbish an old but cherished pair, and add customised artwork for you to make a statement.

Whether it’s your everyday running shoes or a limited-edition design you lost sleep hunting down, they’ll be in the care of true sneaker aficionados.

Showcase

Showcase offers three types of cleaning services: casual (quick wipe of dirt and spots), clean (deep cleaning of upper, midsole and laces), and crisp (thorough upper to insole cleaning; water and stain repellant treatment; disinfection). You can also get old insoles replaced and refurbish the midsole of a pair that’s seen better days.

A pick-up and drop-off service can be arranged within the Klang Valley. It’s free with a minimum spend of RM150.
