Look, we're not saying NEVER clean your sneakers. If you drip ice cream on your brand-new Jordans, or if you have to take a detour through a muddy field in your Vans, by all means clean them. But at the same time, there's no need to sit for hours with a tweezers and a magnifying glass desperately trying to make a pair of two-year old sneakers look new. Aging happens to everyone and everything. Embrace it. Besides, some sneakers look better lived in.
