Nike gives general guidelines for proper cleaning for Air Force 1 and other shoes, including steps like removing dirt and other lose grime with a soft-bristled shoe brush or out-of-use toothbrush, using a mild detergent and a soft cloth or sponge to gently scrub the shoes, rinsing with spot-applied warm water and allowing the shoes to air dry. The company specifically discourages using harsh cleaners, such as bleach, and using mechanical cleaning methods like washing in a clothes washer or dry cleaning, drying with heat from a hair dryer or clothes dryer or using harsh chemicals to clean the shoes.
