Champion X WOOD WOOD

By now, we have no doubt that everyone has heard about Champion’s growing popularity. Champion, established in 1919 has a very long history, and lately it’s been blowing up! Nowadays, it’s super famous for its sweatshirts, hoodies, slides and much more.

If you look around the official website of Champion, you’ll find out that there are two collaborations available now. Today, let’s talk about one of them. Have you checked out their items collaborated with Wood Wood, the high-line street wear brand based on Denmark?

Their 2018 S/S collection includes basic items like sweatshirts, hoodies and tees, which is easily found in Champion, but this collab has muted colors; which is unusual for Champion. (It’s launched at Feb 24th 2018.)

According to the official website of Wood Wood, the collection attracts people with typography that shows the emotions people feel while they watch or participate in sports. (Or even other scenarios in our crazy lives.) Simply designed clothes with typography show off a chill mood while making fans happy. Sometimes simple is the best, you know?

And the double logo for this collaboration is pretty slick, too. Combination of C from Champion and W.W. from Wood Wood def catches your attention. It is really well-designed that could be used in next collaboration as well.

The 2018 S/S collection is still available in many online stores, like the official website of Wood Wood, Champion and other websites which provide various streetwear brands.

Can’t wait for their next collaboration. Can you?

Take the Reshoevn8r Cleaning Challenge

Like skating in your favorite white kicks but not looking forward to cleaning them?

Using the 3 Brush Advanced Laundry System, Reshoevn8r took on the challenge against some of the grimiest everyday shoes, the Vans all white authentic sneakers. Check out how Reshoevn8r performed on these shoes.

Here’s how it all went down:

It started with pouring the Reshoevn8r patented solution into a small bowl with cold tap water.

Used the hog bristle brush first to loosen dirt. Next transitioned to the all purpose brush for the tougher dirt. Let the brush and solution penetrate to trap and remove grime.

For deep cleaning, used the laundry bag and detergent to run the shoes through one to two laundry cycles.

We’ll let you be the judge on the results.

Reshoevn8r shoe cleaner is effective and easy to use on all types of everyday shoes.

It can be hard to find ways on how to clean your new white kicks without ruining the actual shoe. The problem with buying white shoes is that they inevitably become, well, less white. And while there’s something to be said for lived-in shoes that don’t look fresh out of the box, there’s a fine line between a few scuffs and downright dirty shoes. Here are some tips on how to brighten your prized and limited-edition sneakers to keep them in tip top condition.

  • Size and insert your washable shoe trees into shoes, they adjust from size 6-13.
  • You will need a small bowl filled with ¼ to ½ inch of water; put three squirts of Reshoevn8r’s Advanced Eco-Friendly All Natural Shoes Cleaner.
  • Dip Reshoevn8r brush into cleaning solution and pre-treat any stubborn dirt on shoes.

  • Position sneakers soles together and put in Reshoevn8r sneaker laundry bag.
  • Be sure to pull drawstring snug and fasten cord lock (tip: you may want to tie a sailors knot in drawstring).

reshoevn8r-shoesbag

  • Before placing Reshoevn8r bag in washing machine, make sure wash cycle is set to “COLD” water only.
  • Add a small amount of your favorite detergent and let the machine do the rest!
  • When wash cycle is finished, remove from machine and let air dry.
  • Do not remove shoe trees until drying process is complete.
