Step 1: Remove the shoe laces.
We are going to leave those laces shiny, so we are going to put them to soak in a container and we are going to pour 4 parts of hot water for one part of bleach with candeggina (a kind of chlorine) to clean all the dirt from the laces...
Important to always wear gloves while using the bleach!
Step 2. Clean Superstar Shoes With A Sponge
While we leave the laces resting in our solution, we are going to start cleaning our Adidas, for that we are going to need a sponge, regular liquid soap, and we are going to carve with some pressure on all the surface of the shoe, reaching each corner and making an effort in cleaning those hard-to-reach spots trying not to get water inside our shell tennis shoes.
step 3. Rinse Laces
After having cleaned the shell sneakers with the sponge, it's time to take the shoelaces out of the container where they were soaking and start carving to remove all kinds of dirt... and finally let them dry.
Step 4. Cleaning Superstar Tennis By With Brush
For this next step, we will need a brush, a sponge, bleach with cardeggina.
With the excess water from the laces or with a new one... remember 4 parts of water to one of bleach, we will begin to carve with a brush (it can be a toothbrush that you no longer use) with a lot of pressure on the part of the sole and shell, and we will be gentler with the cleaning of the other external parts so as not to damage it... for that we will use the sponge, in the same way we will be careful, since we can take the paint in a sudden movement.
It is important to mention that we will not carve the tennis fabric parts in this step, since it is very delicate with this solution and can be damaged!
Step 5. Dry the Adidas "Camel toe" Shoes
As the last step to leave your white sneakers looking like new, we are going to need a dry cloth, nail polish remover (without acetone) and cotton pads.
We will start by drying the tennis shoes with a dry cloth, passing it over all the surfaces, then, with the acetone and cotton, we will rub the entire outer part of the tennis shoes, from the shell to the sole... it is important that we do it gently on the upper part so as not to damage the paint.
Let's try to avoid rubbing the logo on the tongue as it can be damaged!
It is important that in this step we let both the shoelaces and the sneakers dry well in a ventilated place but that the sun's rays do not hit them directly, since they can turn yellow... and believe me you do not want to do all this procedure to finish with some yellow ADIDAS superstar sneakers.
Following these steps we assure you that you will have clean tennis shoes that you can look like new with your best outfit... there is another secret to make it even better, but we will leave it for a later section.
2. How do I tie the laces of my ADIDAS Superstar sneakers?
Well, to get into this topic we must take it for granted that there are many ways to tie your tennis shoelaces, however here we will show you how to tie your shell tennis shoes with a lot of style:
1 . The first thing we have to do, preferably after having washed your shell tennis shoes, is to start clear with a single tennis shoe, and we are going to start taking the lace from the two ends of it, once this is done, we are going to introduce the ends of the laces in the first holes of the shoe starting from the outside to the inside, make sure not to leave one side longer than the other.
2. Now, we are going to take the end of the lace that is now on the inside right part of the shoe and we are going to insert it into the second hole of the shoe on the left side, doing this from the outside to the inside.
3. We are going to repeat this pattern doing the same with the end of the lace on the inside left part. .. and we are going to repeat this same sequence with all the holes of the tennis shoe until we reach the penultimate hole, since we will leave this one free, this will give a relaxed style to the superstar tennis shoes that go so much with the urban.
4. Finally, we are going to make an epic knot
Take both ends of the laces and intertwine them, then pull them tight. There should be a knot in the middle of your sneakers.
Try to form a bunny ear with one of the shoelaces. You must hold the cord between your thumb and index fingers, the part that is already closed should be small, and the rest long.
Close the other lace, also forming a bunny ear, then take the lace between your thumb and index fingers. Make sure that there is also the shortest closed part and the longest "tail".
Finally, form a normal knot with the ends of the shoelaces in the shape of rabbit ears and place one closed end over the other. Then, pass it behind and insert it through the hole created.
And so in the end we will only pull the ends hard to make our perfect knot for some ADIDAS Superstar.

Now we can analyze point by point.
* We can see how in hand 1 that points to the text "Made in Indonesia* the thickness of the writing is much thinner while in the original it is written in a thicker and more defined way
*In the same way, the hand pointing to the size section according to the country has the same luck, the original has a thick and defined text.
*In hand 3, we can see how the label refers to the text "MALE/MALÉ" however this text may not be in all the original superstar sneakers, so if you can't find this text, don't worry, that doesn't mean that you have fallen into the clutches of piracy.
* Do a tennis check on the text "SUPERSTAR" usually a reply is far from identical, either by font or spacing.
The text "SUPERSTAR" must come as it is in the photo... you can make the comparison yourself.
A very effective way to compare an original shell tennis with a fake is, without a doubt, to check the logo on its tongue,
As can be seen in the comparison images, the original logo on the tongue does not come with the trademark "R" symbol, apart from the fact that you can easily see a small indentation on the edge of the letters where the text is stamped. "le marque aux 3 bandes" refers to the French text "the mark of the three stripes"
. Examine the sole stitching
