Believe it or not, your shoes are an integral part of your personality, and whether you keep them clean or not speaks volumes about you. Why do you need a shoe cleaner? Even more importantly, why do you need the right shoe cleaner? Clean shoes mean that you look good, your shoes are cared for and they will certainly last longer, ultimately, saving you money! From leather, suede to rubber or canvas and every other material in-between, I guarantee you a list of the best shoe cleaner solutions to keep your shoes in the best shape possible.
After thorough research and personal experience over an expansive time period, I have had to look at various shoe care products that are available out there. And as a result, I have managed to successfully develop a list of the five top shoe cleaners. So tie your shoe laces, we are about to dive into a list of incredible shoe cleaning products that will give you the value for money that you deserve!
Introducing the number one on our list: The Jason Markk Premium Shoe Cleaner Brush and Solution! This product has a size of 4oz and comes with a Standard Shoe Cleaning Brush, made in the USA.
This product has the dimensions of 9 x 6 x 2 inches with a shipping weight of 6.4 ounces. Moreover, with its Jason Markk logo on the soft brush, and the high quality shoe cleaner in a re-sealable pouch, this product contains no harsh chemicals with a great scent. This means that it is subtle yet effective on all kinds of material that you use it on.
I bought this to make sure that my new white sneakers stayed clean for as long as possible while smelling good. So I took out my older shoes and tried this on them, and its cleaning power left me in awe. It took out most of the dirt! It removed a good amount of dirt and scuffs from the fabric and the shoe outsoles. It takes about 10-15 minutes depending on how much cleaning your shoes require!
However, I did feel that despite the results, there were a few drawbacks that I personally experienced. I felt that the product was slightly overpriced. In addition to that, the brush that comes with the kit is good for soles mostly, rubber, plastic but not sensitive materials.
All in all, this product has made it to the top of the list for the value of money that it does provide, and cleans up to 100 sneakers with only a 4oz bottle of its premium shoe cleaner. It is biodegradable and hence environment friendly. In short, one of the best suede sneaker cleaners around.
The runner up on our list is the Pink Miracle Shoe Cleaner Kit, with its original Shoe Cleaning System since 1985. It works on all washable leathers, vinyl, nubuck, suede, canvas, cloth etc. Since it is a non-toxic concentrate, it can be used in small amounts and lasts a really long time!
The product comes in an 8 Oz. bottle. It consists the properties of a conditioner as well. It is made up of a safe Concentrate that contains saddle soap, gentle oils and conditioners. Moreover, this shoe cleaner comes with a FREE brush. The Pink Miracle Shoe Cleaner Kit comes in a package with dimensions of 9.8 x 7 x 3 inches and a shipping weight of 12 ounces.
The liquid is the pink in the pictures, so I was worried it would stain my white shoes. But I took the risk and I must say I am thoroughly impressed with the results! The darker colored shoes look even better.
Given that the white shoes have more delicate uppers, I suggest that you don’t brush it too hard or it would damage them. Another downside is the fact that of all material, it can potentially leave a stain on leather. So be extra careful with that!
Overall, I absolutely love this product. It works great on most shoes and only takes a very small amount per pair and is great value for money.

The Revivex Suede and Fabric Boot Care Kit stands on number 3rd proudly with its suede cleaner that creates minimal suds, a suede brush to remove dirt, and an eraser block to remove scuffs.
This product is packed with specialized water repellent conditions and softens suede and fabric to keep your shoes looking good as new. This water repellent product is the essential all-in-one maintenance system for boots and shoes with product dimensions of 13 x 4 x 20.5 inches and a weight of 1.86 pounds.
I bought this product to clean a pair of super expensive light suede walking shoes. The shoes were new when I wore them to a week trip whereby I had to trek through mud, grass, and sand. By the end of the trip, they looked so bad, I didn’t think they would come clean. To my wildest surprise, they look incredibly clean after I used this product!
The only drawback I found was that some suede can turn a little hard and un-suede like. But it really depends!
This shoe cleaner is a MUST have for anyone who wants to save their suede from being ruined by water and to clean them without a single worry about the color fading.
Coming up on number 4 on our list, is the aptly named Reshoevn8r 3 Pc Starter Shoe Cleaning Kit. Now, the name might be a mouthful, but don’t let that push you away, 3 Oz Bottle of pure cleaning goodness works on Leather, White and Canvas.
The Reshoevn8r comes in a 0.7’ high and 14’ wide packaging, with the inclusion of a FREE All Purpose Brush, and a Microfiber Towel, now that’s what I call value! This product is travel friendly. Unlike most shoe cleaners, the Reshoevn8r does not contain added dyes, which can harm the integrity of the material. This product works on almost all material as well, including but not limited to; mesh, canvas, suede, and many more. Now with the new easy to use technology, shoe cleaning is just a push of a cap away!
When I ordered this product, I’ll admit, the packaging threw me off a bit. Inside though I was pleasantly surprised to find and accessible and user friendly bottle. Using the liquid on my Nike Air’s (favorite basketball shoes) I was hesitant as they are made of mesh. Luckily though the Reshoevn8r worked perfectly to give it that brand new shine. Not only that, they worked perfectly on my suede office shoes as well!
Overall, I feel the Reshoevn8r is an excellent product for both work and play.

Last, but far from least, The Reshoevn8r 3 Brush Shoe Cleaning Kit. This one’s for people that are serious about cleaning their shoes and mean business. This product with dimensions of 8 x 8 x 2 inches includes not one, not two, but three brushes all specified for different material. These brushes are designed especially for suede, canvas, mesh and more to ensure the least amount of damage to the shoe. Like before, all Reshoevn8r products are free of dyes that stain the shoes during cleaning. The highly concentrated solution of 4 ounces means you can clean up to 50 pairs, a little bit of liquid goes a long way. The easy push and play cap allows for speedy application.
When I ordered this product I had a great time trying out all the different brushes for all the different materials. However, this product includes its own drawbacks such as the fact that the kit may not be entirely suitable for suede since it is a sensitive material, and the brushes are a little harsh. It also takes multiple strokes and hard-work to take out the stains absolutely. The bottle, too, is small in size which doesn’t give it an edge in terms of quantity.
Overall, I was pretty satisfied with the Reshoevn8r 3 Brush Pack given its economical price, as even after it finished, I just got myself 3 brand new brushes that will last me a long time.
