EVERYTHING short of bleach? Did you wash them in the washing machine and then let them airdry in the sunshine? That always gets my shoes the cleanest. If that doesn't work, try some hydrogen peroxide on a rag and blot (rubbing a tiny bit to loosen) the spots to see if they come out. If all else fails, I'd buy a pair of street shoes and a pair of off-street shoes. I wish I had the money to have a pair to wear when I run on trails or in mud, but I don't so I just wear an old pair without much support and then always regret it later (because of the pain) because I too like to keep my running shoes looking new. HTH!

Hi, I just bought a new pair of running shoes and I'm just enough OCD to want them to stay clean. I ran a turkey trot and another race at the beach in my hometown so now my brand new shoes have sand colored stains on them and I've tried everything short of bleach to get them out. Any suggestions?
