How to clean your Air Jordan 4 ‘Black Cats’ in Under 10 mins

clock-circular-outline Posted February 20, 2024

At Crep, we know how busy your schedule may be. Working, studying and balancing a social life can be difficult at the best of times, leaving only a small amount of time to look after your favorite sneakers.


Despite it not being at the top of the priority list, we make it our priority to ensure your sneakers are always looking their best, so we’ve created a time-saving sneaker cleaning routine that will be worth every penny.

Buckle up sneakerheads, as we’re going to show you how to clean your Air Jordan 4 ‘Black Cats’ in under 10 minutes.

                                                   Step 1: Preparation

Remove laces of Air Jordan 4 'Black Cats'

Start by removing the laces from your Air Jordan 4 ‘Black Cats’ as this will allow you to reach all the nooks and crannies that have collected dirt over time. This will, in turn, contribute to a thorough clean of your kicks.

Once the laces are removed, we recommend inserting a sneaker tree into your sneaker. This helps aid the cleaning process by retaining the original shape of your kicks as well as reducing extra creasing. Plus, our Crep Protect Sneaker Trees are velvet coated too - preventing exterior damage throughout use.

                           Step 2: Invest in the Crep Protect Starter Pack

Inside is our 50ml miniature-sized repellent spray, six dual-sided wipes, and instant action foam. All of which is a travel-friendly option for many of you sneakerheads out there.

                                                    Step 3: Foam it up

Applying foam to sneaker

For this tutorial, we’re going to use the ready-made foam. Shake the bottle before use and apply a layer of foam to the sneaker, covering from top to bottom. Once fully covered, use the built-in brush top to scrub the sneaker in a circular motion, starting with the midsoles and outsoles, and working your way to the uppers. 

Scrubbing away the dirt

                                              Step 4: Wipe away the dirt

Wiping sneaker using a Microfibre cloth

Using a damp Microfibre cloth, wipe down the Air Jordan 4 ‘Black Cats’ starting from the uppers and moving your way down to the outsole. We recommend that you apply more pressure to the outsole, so you can effectively wipe away any excess dirt building up on the outsole.

                                                         Step 5: Repeat

Extra foam up to sneaker
For best results, repeat steps 3&4 until your Air Jordan 4 ‘Black Cats’ are spotless.

                                                Step 6: Final touch-ups

Cleaning up the Jordan 4 'Black Cat' with the Crep Protect Eraser

Now, if you are a nitpicker like we are, give your 4’s a touch-up with the Crep Protect Eraser. This ensures that there are no scuff marks left in sight, so you can finish up your cleans with a box-fresh feel.
