I've used soap, toothpaste and water to clean my kicks for years. I just mix it all in a cup and use a toothbrush to clean em. It works well. Obviously there's gonna be normal wear and tear you can't just clean off after years, but shoes are only gonna last so long depending on how many times you wear em and how often you clean them as well.

I don't have a LOT of kicks, probably like 20 pairs. I'd have more, but I just can't justify buying new kicks all the time. Especially not right now. I pretty much only wear Air Forces and Jordans. I have white Air Forces with the black checks and black bottoms that I wear the most because they go with anything. So those are my every day sneakers which means they get the most wear and tear. Though they are still in pretty good shape considering how long i've had em. I have a pair of all white Air Forces i've had for months but I haven't wore em yet and probably won't for a while considering winter is here and the weather will be sh*tty. Other than that, I have different colors that I obviously match with whatever i'm wearing.

Oh also, what do y'all usually do to clean your laces? I wanted to buy some laces online, but I can't seem to find actual regular size Nike laces that'll fit Air Forces. What I do is put the laces in a cup and spray them with some cleaner that contains bleach. I'll scrub the dirty spots a bit and then i'll add warm water in the cup and let it sit until the next day. It has worked pretty well. I've never waited til laces were really dirty though. If they're a little dirty and noticeable, I either ain't wearing the kicks or i'm cleaning them asap.
