How to Clean the OVO Air Jordan 8
Due to the leather make-up of the shoe, the best way to clean it is the RESHOEVN8R Signature Shoe Cleaning Kit. This will allow us to clean it with the Three Brushes and Solution, then put it in the wash to flush out the sockliner, tongue, and stitching.
Everything your sneaker need.
Power packed laundry pods.
The best way to go about cleaning the sneaker is to work from the top down, starting with the Soft Bristle Brush. Use this Brush and the Sneaker Cleaning Solution to give the leather upper a nice scrub. Once you're done with the upper, move to the Medium Bristle Brush and the midsole, and then finish off the brush treatment with the Stiff Bristle Brush on the outsole.
Once you've completed your pretreatment, go ahead and put the OVO Jordan 8s in the wash with the Sneaker Laundry Bag and Sneaker Laundry Detergent. This will flush out the hard to reach areas including the sockliner and tongue. Don't worry, because this shoe is primarily leather the washing machine won't cause the shoe to lose color or damage it in any way.
