Growing up, the Jordan 1s separated the cool from the mediocre. Cool kids would show off their kicks like they were the most extraordinary things. Basketball players swore the shoes made them play like Micheal Jordan. And still, Nike Air Jordans are one of, if not the most iconic shoes ever to hit a sales floor.
The Hyper Royal colorway is a stunning redesign of the classic Jordan 1s. The light blue suede adds an element of sophistication matched with the white rubber. The sneakers are sleek and are made to be the centerpiece of a sneakerhead’s collection. And the light smoke grey is the cherry-on-top that makes this palette stand out.
With such beautiful sneakers, it is crucial to know how to clean the Air Jordan 1s Hyper Royals.
The best place to start is with Shoe MGK, a shoe care company that has been cleaning all Jordan sneakers and colorways since 1992.
How to Clean the Jordan 1s Hyper Royal with Shoe MGK Cleaner and Conditioner
From one sneakerhead to another, keeping your kicks looking fresh is vital to keeping your sneakers dope. The Jordan 1s Hyper Royals are beautiful and are definitely a shoe you want to show off to your friends. Any kid in the schoolyard would be jealous to see the sneakers you’re sporting. Though, wearing them around increases the likelihood of the shoe getting dirty. That’s where the Shoe MGK Cleaner and Conditioner saves the day.
The shoe cleaner soaks into the materials of the uppers attacking and breaking apart dirt and debris from the molecular level. This means that your Jordans get a deep restorative clean. An important note when cleaning suede: always dilute the cleaner by mixing the shoe cleaner with water. This helps ensure the shoes get a deep clean without the risk of bleeding the color.

- Remove the laces and place them in a small solution of cleaner and water. Let soak and wring out the dirt after a few minutes.
- Dip the brush into a clean bowl of water and add a few drops of cleaner directly to the brush.
- Lather the shoe with the nylon brush until the solution becomes foamy. Wipe away the excess solution with a clean towel. Repeat until the shoe is clean.

In addition, it makes these deformities bead up and roll off the leather and suede uppers, keeping your shoes clean for longer.
