Some of my favorite jeans are of the unwashed dry/raw selvedge kind (Nudie jeans especially). The problem is that the indigo comes off of these types of jeans and on to my bapestas ... any recommendations on cleaning the (patent leather) bapestas and the indigo rubbing onto them?

Wash the jeans before you wear them.

Use masking tape or bape tape on the bottom cuff of your jeans.

You can also cuff the very bottom of the jeans where the hem is.

The underside of the jeans won't bleed onto your kicks.

Prevents bleeding onto white midsoles.

The cleaning part i'm not too sure of though.

i think bologna is referring to raw jeans 'bleeding'

yup thats exactly what i'm talking about .. i guess nudie is a bit extreme with their color process, I do wear them with the turnups and even the indigo on the underside comes off a bit... but I would think some of the raw denim used in the bape, evisu, rmc lines suffer from the same problem?

pre-washing is not an option for me ... ruins the raw look and. will wash only when they are truly stank :D

thanks for the tips everyone .. btw, a little experimentation at home .. rubbing alcohol does wonders on color that already bled on the patent leather. not sure if it works as well on non-patent leather.
