The world of trainers and sneakers (kicks, creps, trabs, treads, sannys or whatever you call them) is certainly big business – with the rarest and most sought-after shoes fetching thousands of pounds online.

Over the years the cost of trainers has steadily increased, and in a world where “fast fashion” is starting to become a thing of the past, many are turning to restoring and cleaning their old trainers instead of buying new ones.

It’s also a fact that when you find yourself some trainers that you love – it’s hard to let go. Which is where Nusole come in – a premium footwear laundry boutique based at Pollard Yard in Ancoats.

Launched in late 2018 by childhood friends and trainer fanatics Luke and Kile, the intention of Nusole is to provide a quick and easy yet high-quality solution for footwear maintenance. They want us to fall back in love with our footwear – giving us that out-of-the-box fresh feeling once more.

Their service incorporates extensive cleaning, topped off with modern aftercare to prolong the lifespan of footwear. Packages start at £35 for their classic clean, moving up to £45 for their high-end premium ‘Nusole Clean’ which comes with includes a protective treatment, fragrance spray and complimentary shoe tree.
