What is wrong with you people? I generally wear the soles out before they look worn. Just chucked a bag full in the tip that all looked like new until you look at the bottom.

Can’t recommend Chris at Sneakerrehab enough:


Lives in Nuneaton and charges £15 a pair and does an amazing job. Also, does alterations so he can do things like change the colourways, or personalise them so unpicks the Gazelle and replaces it with CCFC or whatever you want.

This was the job he did on cleaning my pink Gazelle’s:

Before (right), after (left) Sneakers ER. This was a few years back but those trainers are from 2007. Quality of Adidas has nose dived recently.

They look great

I have managed to get mine a lot better but what do you do with seams? Have tried a bleach pen.

I think they might need painting?

Do you have a number? I don't have FB or anything :(

Scrap that, made an IG to message him as I saw those footy boots!

They look pretty good but not really sure how much you can do with seams

Yeah, it's the grey bit really. Looks hideous on white trainers.

I swear by Adidas. Can’t go wrong. Always replace a pair of blue Sambas like for like to wear every day. I don’t know if it’s any use but at the Adidas store in Oxford Street do very good work with cleaning. They deliver same day within the M25 but next day if they use an external courier. We’ve always dropped ours off there but I’m pretty sure they’ll take deliveries. Failing that there’s always Crep Protect kits. Well worth getting one. I’m crap at that sort of thing but I’ve managed to make mine and the Mrs’ Sambas, Gazelles, Hamburgs, Spezials, Jeans, Campus and Stadts look almost brand new without much effort.

Took them over to Chris in Nuneaton. He's done an amazing job of those and my football boots.

Really decent bloke as well.

Does a top job doesn’t he?

I’ve got a couple of pairs of Stadts (don’t wear new trainers to Cheltenham) coming his way!

I invested in this the other day. Just need a few more pairs to get rid of the Missus’ shoes.

Yeah properly sorted them out and a decent bloke as well.

Love the blacked out boots!
