Firstly, presoak your sneakers in warm water and laundry detergent for 10 minutes. Remember to only use a small amount of detergent, enough to make a light soapy mixture. Pour white vinegar onto your shoes and scrub it with a damp cloth. Alternatively, you may use a toothbrush in an event that you are unable to clean the edges.

Note: Do not use soap or detergent on leather boots. Instead, use water or a boot cleaner designed for leather.
