  1. Understanding Vulcanized Shoes

Vulcanized sneakers are made through a process that involves treating rubber with sulfur at high temperatures, resulting in a more durable and elastic material. At the same time, xVESSEL’s vulcanized sneakers typically feature a rubber sole bonded to a canvas or leather upper.


  1. Cleaning tips
  • Do not soak in water to avoid damage caused by prolonged soaking.
  • Do not use a brush to scrub vigorously to avoid brushing off patterns and decorative parts of the sneakers.
  • Do not use bleach.
  • Avoid contact with sharp objects to prevent scratching the sneakers.
  • Use a soft rag soaked in water and toothpaste, rub gently, and wipe evenly. After cleaning, place the shoes in a ventilated and cool place to dry naturally. Do not expose them to the sun or bake at high temperatures to prevent fading or degumming, which can accelerate aging.


  1. Storage Tips
  • Keep Them Dry: Store your sneakers in a cool, dry place to prevent mold and mildew growth. When not in use for a long time, wrap the sneakers in paper and store them in a dry place. Try to avoid squeezing to keep the sneakers in their original state without deformation.
  • Avoid Direct Sunlight: Prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause the colors to fade and the rubber to degrade.


  1. Regular Maintenance
  • Inspect Regularly: Check your sneakers periodically for signs of wear and tear.
  • Clean Often: Perform a quick clean after each use to prevent dirt buildup.
  • Replace Insoles: If the insoles become worn out or odorous, replace them with new ones for added comfort and hygiene.


Taking care of your vulcanized sneakers is simple and rewarding. Regular cleaning, deep cleaning for stubborn stains, protecting them from the elements, proper storage, and regular maintenance will keep your sneakers looking fresh and extending their lifespan. By following these steps, you can ensure that your vulcanized sneakers remain a stylish and durable part of your wardrobe for years to come.
