    People still go on the sneaker care forum. Maybe if you look, you would know. And this information is already known by most. Ask a mod to put this in the 1stpage.

    known by most?

    Half people who bought the space jams are asking these same questions.

    Most people don't go in the sneaker care forum[​IMG]

    This post in the Jordan Brand forum was needed.

    When it comes to preventing yellowing, YMMV.

    Also, you want to store your clear-soled shoes in a dark, cool room with low humidity.

    I've heard of silica packs drying out the leather and making it crack.

    I've also read plenty of accounts on NT here that people don't use any silica packs and they have minimal to no yellowing.

    Then there are others who vacuum seal their XIs in plastic bags and keep them icy.

    Like I said, YMMV.

    No need for a smart remark bro. You stated the obvious.

    Yeah I heard the same. I had some silica packs in my navy VIs with no problem, but I've seen silica packs go horribly wrong. I also think itdepends on the shoe.

    nice post. one quick question, is it ok for me to wrap my shoes? i heard this could dye up the outsole and will crack once it's unwrapped.

    i store my clear soled shoes like this:


    take out any paper/carton that comes with the shoes and throw it away.

    take a silica pack to the top(inside) of the box.

    store in my closet.

    after every wear, clean/wash the soles.

    store again.

    Does the paper in shoes boxes make all shoes yellow?

    I'm thinking about taking it out of all my boxes now
