How to Clean Alpinestars SMX-6 V2 Vented Boots with Shoe MGK Cleaner and Conditioner

Any street-Rossi will tell you that dirt will get kicked onto your boots when pushing your favorite twisted road. The faster you go, the more your tires will kick up debris. The dirtier your boots get, the less protective they will become because that dirt could damage the shoe in places like the ankle support or the footbed. That is why utilizing the Shoe MGK Cleaner, and Conditioner is crucial. The shoe cleaner soaks into the leather, attacking and breaking down dirt and debris on the molecular level. This process gives your shoes a deep clean that has them looking fresh and feeling smooth.

  1. Prep the Alpinestar motorcycle boots by wiping off excess dirt and debris from the shoes with a dry microfiber towel.
  2. Wet the bristle brush and drizzle the product over the brush. Apply the solution to the shoe in small circular motions, covering the shoe. 
  3. Once covered, wipe clean with a dry towel. Repeat these steps until the shoe is clean!
