Canvas is made from hemp and is used for casual shoes and sneakers. Some "canvas" sneakers are made from cotton. Rubber is traditionally used for the sole. They are considered low-maintenance footwear.
What You Need for Cleaning Canvas Sneakers:
- Nylon bristle brush or old toothbrush
- Cleanser such as laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid or a "suede and fabric" shampoo.
- Nylon scrub pad
- Baking soda
- Plain paper
- White cream shoe polish (for white canvas tennis shoes)
