Those mesh stains are very hard to remove. Try hand washing with a foaming cleaner. Careful when scrubbing as you will tear that mesh. It's unlikely the stains will come out completely, I would suggest using a shoe whitener like cherry blossom very lightly. I've seen customisers repaint toeboxes so its shouldn't cause much harm.
Oxyclean white revive
let it soak for a few hours and all da stains will be gone
appreciate the feedback guys, sounds advice!I've used oxy clean on my white meshes toe boxes. It works, but I would say when you let them dry, let the shoe stand up against something and make sure the toe box is at the top. From my experience when cleaning white toe boxes on air max 1's, there always seem to be some type of light brown stain on the toe box after it dries. I think its due to the residual dirt from the shoe and it get caught in the toe box. What i've found is that if you let the shoes stand up with the toe box on top, the brown stain won't be on the toebox
figured let me at least try to clean these for wear before I turn them into donors and worse comes to worse, I’ll find another shoe to do a sole swap
