Expert Guide to Keeping Your Adidas Sambas Pristine with Boot Buddy

Adidas Sambas are a timeless classic, but like all cherished sneakers, they're prone to getting dirty. To keep them in prime condition, you'll need more than just regular wear and care - you need the right cleaning techniques. And that's where Boot Buddy comes in - a game-changer in sneaker & all your shoe care.

Whether you're a sneaker enthusiast or a parent trying to teach your kids about shoe maintenance, this guide will walk you through keeping those Sambas spotless.

Why Cleaning Adidas Sambas Can Be Tricky

Adidas Sambas, known for their style and comfort, can be challenging to clean due to their unique material combination. Regular cleaning not only keeps them looking great but also extends their lifespan. 

Avoid This Common Cleaning Mistake

Many might think of the washing machine as a quick fix for dirty Sambas. However, machine washing can damage the structure and material of the shoes. Instead, we recommend a more hands-on approach.

Step-by-Step Guide Using Boot Buddy Products

Boot Buddy offers an array of products that are perfect for keeping your Sambas in top shape. Here’s how to use them:

Step One: Prep Your Shoes

Remove the laces and insoles. Boot Buddy’s Cleaning Solution is perfect for washing these separately. Soak them in a mix of warm water and a dash of solution.

Step Two: Brush Off Dirt

Before applying any liquid, use 1 of your 3 Boot Buddy’s Brushes to gently remove surface dirt and debris from your Sambas.

Step Three: Gentle Cleaning with Boot Buddy’s Solution

Mix warm water with Boot Buddy’s Sneaker Cleaner. Using a soft cloth or the Boot Buddy Brush, apply the solution in circular motions, tackling the tough spots with care.

Step Four: Air Dry Your Sambas

Avoid heat drying. Instead, let your Adidas Sambas air dry naturally. You can stuff them with paper to help retain their shape.

Step Five: Deodorize for Freshness

Finish off with Boot Buddy’s deodorisers . These deodorisers will keep your Sambas smelling fresh, especially important after an active day out.

Catering to Different Materials

Adidas Sambas come in various materials, and Boot Buddy has solutions for each:

  1. Leather Sambas: Use the soft bristle brush with a bit of Boot Buddy’s Sneaker Cleaner, taking care not to over-saturate the leather.
  1. Suede Sambas Special care is needed for suede. Boot Buddy’s Hard bristle brush and Cleaner are specifically designed for this delicate material.
  1. Synthetic Sambas: For synthetic parts, the same method as for leather works well.
