Keeping white plastic outsoles looking good

Recommended Posts

I'm getting a pair of FJ Packard white shoes, which include a white outsole.  It's a high quality shoe, not a throwaway, so I want to keep them looking good.  Sort of dreading the white outsole.  Beyond the obvious of cleaning it after each round, what will it take to keep that outsole from getting too crappy?

I would apply some Crep Protect.. Apply it every couple of rounds, it'll help keep everything clean... I use it on all of my shoes (golf & casual)

Thanks.  I went and read some reviews on Amazon, and some people with leather shoes complained that it discolored the leather.  So if I use it, I'll tape off the leather and just spray the sole.

I've used some waterproofing sprays with some success in the past along with a good supply of Mr Clean magic eraser... but they will change color over time.

 

Yeah I'm going to have to be okay with that.

Great looking shoes you selected. seen that model in store and they look just wonderful.

you'll get about two good seasons out of them before they look well-played, no matter what you do to preserve the 'new car look'.

keep in mind that once they're molded to your foot, they'll feel even better.

replace the insoles as needed and give them the scrub they deserve after each round.

to paraphrase an earlier poster , white stays white only in the box - pretty fair assessment.

scars add character. like the soles of forged irons telling the tale.

enjoy them.
