Sneaker Shields™ prevent creases and preserve your sneakers like no other product ever, and are considered the “Holy Grail” of shoe care. Force Fields are made of a piece of foam that, by it’s own nature, creases and do not work to truly prevent creases. They also absorb sweat and smell, unlike Sneaker Shields which are made of a proprietary plastic blend with ventilation holes. Also, Force Fields make your toes go numb after wearing them for a short time.

We offer a 30 day guarantee against manufacturer defects, however, you should easily get 3 months to a couple of years out of single pair of Universals depending on how often you wear them. We do have customers that have had the same pair for 6 years and use them all the time, it just depends on a long list of variables. You can see tons of pics, and testimonials in the comments, on our Instagram account: @sneakershields Follow us!

The Protector is made of a much harder plastic and you should easily get 2 to 6 years out of a single pair.

The Protector will last for years to come and will easily outlast The Universal by a couple of years. When the Protector was created, initially it was strictly with the Air Force 1 sneaker in mind. The reason for that is because it most closely resembles that of an Air Force 1 toe-box. However, since we have had more and more people use them for other shoes outside of the Air Force 1 line, we have somewhat changed the way we feel about that and therefore want everybody to know that they are proven to work with a host of other kicks and should be taken on a shoe case-by-case basis or trial and error, so to speak. We hope to have a list compiled with the Protector compatibility at some point. But for now it’s just best to try them out on any shoe that you want to be completely protected as best that any product on the market can in the world, outside of a steel toe boot, can. And they last for years.

Yes, The Universal by Sneaker Shields™ work on both sneakers and dress shoes. In most cases you will have to trim the bottoms of the Sneaker Shields™ to ensure a perfect fit into the desired dress shoe. Simply trim them with a pair of scissors. Just trim of a little at at time.

Most people just slip them in and are good to go, but rest assured, if you find they are uncomfortable you can simply notch out the area of discomfort and all of your comfort issues will be solved.

We recommend trimming according to these instructions for best comfort and fit.  Cut small increments at a time if needed, remember what you cut off you cant put back.

No, all of the Universals are white and all of the Protectors are black.
