Clean Your Shoes was initially created in 2016 as a small pet project fueled by a passion for sneakers and technology. This project serves to educate, entertain, and inspire sneakerheads of all kinds who have the desire to learn more about sneaker maintenance, the sneaker culture and industry, and how to incorporate sneakers more into their everyday life. With interviews, opinion pieces, how-to guides, and other related content, Clean Your Shoes is now a new, fresh voice of the modern sneakerhead community.
Sneaker Man on The Click-Clack
Jordan “J-Play” McRae is a software developer and sneaker enthusiast from Dallas, Texas. Fresh out of college and job prospects, J-Play sought to beef up his resume by creating a website to showcase his technical skills and interests. That website was Clean Your Shoes.
The effectiveness of the original Clean Your Shoes website’s ability to land J-Play a job is debatable, but he would eventually get a job some weeks later. After becoming a gainfully employed person somewhere, he decided that Clean Your Shoes wasn’t just going to be a means to a job; he would be expanding the vision.
When he isn’t writing code (as a living or for fun), you can catch J-Play on the basketball court or cleaning his shoes on the weekends watching Full Size Run. Connect with him on Instagram.
