How CapSole Makes Your Sneakers Last Two Times Longer

Marco Negrete

Whether it was your first pair or a special gift, sneaker memories can last a lifetime. Unfortunately, most sneakers themselves don’t have the same longevity. Even if you care for them and clean them after every wear, time will eventually turn your favorite kicks into memories and dust. That is unless you use CapSole to store and preserve your sacred pairs.

CapSole was founded by lifelong sneakerhead Darren Lee because he didn’t want to have to say goodbye to his grail pairs. Sure, many shoes retro if you wait long enough. But any sneakerhead will tell you why that particular pair in their collection just means more. So, how does CapSole work? Continue reading to learn how. You can hear from Darren himself on the SoleSavy Podcast.

Who designed the CapSole pod system?

Mansour Abdulbaki, is a chemical engineer with a Ph.D in Polymers & Nanocomposites (sneaker materials). He designed the patent-pending preservation system and selected the preservative. 

What if I want to wear and preserve my sneakers?

Wearing and preserving is exactly what CapSole recommends! They suggest a Wear, Preserve, Store approach. Wearing your shoes helps, but it doesn’t stop yellowing & aging due to exposure to air (oxidation & hydrolysis). Preserve when you’re not wearing. CapSole provides an airtight seal & replaces the air inside with a preservative to help prevent aging & yellowing. Store in your shoe box or wherever you prefer until it’s time to wear your shoes again. Our pods are reusable & easy to use.

How was CapSole tested?

The CapSole team conducted over 400 hours of accelerated age testing on Air Force 1s, which equates to years of actual wear. The conditions used during testing include extreme exposure to oxygen, moisture, light, and heat. 


Test results showed yellowing and aging were prevented by 2X when using CapSole, doubling the sneaker’s lifespan.

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
