White sneakers can be the perfect casual addition to any outfit.

They are also perfect for completing your street-style look and keeping things chic!

The one down side to white shoes is their ability to attract dirt and become dingy.

Fortunately there are ways to keep them clean and white for longer with a little bit of extra effort!

Keep reading for some helpful tips.

1. Don't Wear Them in the Rain

With white shoes, you must be aware of weather and what kind of grounds you'll be walking.

Rain creates puddles and mud and it's very easy to soil your white shoes in this environment.

Even rain water itself has pollutants from the atmosphere and could discolor those bright sneaks!

2. Don't Wear Them for an All Day Activity

It's also best to wear your chic white sneakers for a single outing event, or when you know you'll be doing minimal walking.

If you're walking in them all day, chances are you'll scuff them on a curb, spill a drink on them, or step in some animal feces.

These are a risk with any shoe, but white shoes show everything!

3. Choose the Shoe Fabric Wisely

Some fabric is more resilient to stain than others.2

Leather scuffs but doesn't show dirt as easily, while canvas get dirty fast.

I have all white Nike Air Max's that are mostly mesh with a rubber sole and they've stayed white for a long time!

4. Put a Weather Sealant on Them

Depending on the fabric, you can put a weather sealant on your shoes to protect them.

The sealant coats the outside and allows water and dirt to bead off.

Remember to test an inconspicuous area first!

5. Spot Clean Whenever You Can

I do this all the time and I've found it really helps with maintaining a clean, white shoe.

Every couple of wears, spot clean your shoes with a damp cloth, vinegar, magic eraser, or even a baby wipe.2

It gets rid of small dirty areas and prevents stains from setting in, as well as dirt accumulation (which makes them harder to clean later on).
