Cleaning the upper part of the golf shoes
You can easily use a mild soap to clean the upper part of your golf shoe. Another great option made available to you by Ecco is “Ecco Shoe cleaner” which is affordable and makes your cleaning process a little more stress-free. Use a dampened towel to wipe away the dirt. Don’t be harsh, be gentle. For white golf shoes get the white shoe cleaner and say bye-bye to the unwanted scuff mark. For dark shoes, I recommend using a mixture of Shoe color crème and shoe cleaner. This mixture will help your shoes to maintain the newer look and at the same time will condition the leather as well.
Tip: Never directly soak your golf shoes into the water. This will ruin the material of the shoe.
Getting rid of the Scuff marks on the shoe
How can you tell the difference between a new pair of shoe and an old one? Definitely from the scuff marks on the shoes. Scuff marks ruin the heath and the appearance of golf shoes. To deal with this, all you need is shoe polish matching the color of your shoes. Simply apply it on the scuff marks and it vanishes like magic. Don’t forget to get a brush to help you apply the shoe polish better.
Tip: There are different colors of shoe polishes available in the market so don’t be overwhelmed. Remember to choose a polish that matches the color of the leather of the shoe.
Cleaning the outsoles
When you are done cleaning the upper part of the shoe now it’s time to take care of the outsoles of your Ecco street golf shoes. Cleaning the outsoles of shoes is easy and simple. All you need is soapy water and a piece of cloth. Soak the cloth in the soapy water and wipe away the dirt on the outsoles of the shoe. After applying the shoe polish wait for at least 10 minutes to proceed with this step.
Tip: To get that perfect clean golf shoes, use a dampened cloth to clean the spikes underneath the shoe.
Drying the shoe
Make sure that your shoes are completely dry before you put them on. Never put on shoes under direct sunlight rather keep your shoes under shade to let them dry. You can also use a blow-dryer to make the drying process faster.
Tip: Exposing your shoes to excessive heat or direct sunlight can lead to cracks on your shoes and can also damage the upper part and the outsoles of your favorite golf shoes.
