    1. Shoe wipes can be bought all over and are great for spot cleaning. Some people also use Baby Wipes.
    2. A Clorox Bleach Pen is used by many to spot clean white shoes, especially in seams and in stitching.
    3. Clean-n-Brite is also used by many to safely clean white leather. You can visit website, there is a page about cleaning leather.
    4. KIWI Sport Shoe Scrub-Off Heavy Duty Cleaner has good results.
    5. A Magic Eraser, which you can buy in any art store, has also had good results in spot cleaning shoes.
    6. Permatex DL Hand Cleaner is a product for cleaning skin that works well on almost all leather. You can find this product in hardware stores.
    7. Goo Gone is an excellent cleaner, also often found in hardware stores. Follow the dilution directions on the packet and eventually Goo Gone will remove just about anything.
    8. Goop waterless hand cleaner is another excellent hand cleaning product used by contractors to remove the harshest dirt from skin and as such is also a great leather cleaner. Goop also removes stubborn stains that other products may not reach, and thus is a good first treatment for very dirty shoes.
    hope that shit helps :) i'd say go with the bleach pen but theres the risk that you miss you know? try to find shoe wipes at like payless shoes or something because they have a whole rack of those cleaning products
