This should loosen and remove most of the dry dirt and dust that's on the surface of the shoe.

The baking soda is basic and will act as a detergent and the toothbrush gets into all the hard to reach places, making those white shoes look new.
Work a toothbrush in small circles to loosen stains. Dip the toothbrush in your bleach solution and start scrubbing your shoes. Focus on soiled areas and deep stains, applying slight pressure to the fabric. You should notice the stains lift out of the fabric. Wipe the bleach solution off your shoes with a damp towel. Apply gentle pressure as you wipe the towel over your shoes. Let the shoes dry in a well-ventilated area.
Leave your shoes in the room to dry for at least hours before you plan on wearing them again. Try to let them dry overnight if you can to dry completely. Mix baking soda, vinegar, and hot water into a paste. Continue mixing the solution together until it forms a thick paste.
The baking soda and vinegar will start to fizz and bubble as it reacts. If your paste is runny, add an additional teaspoon 5 g of baking soda. Work the baking soda paste into your shoes using a toothbrush. Dip the head of the toothbrush into your paste and brush it into the fabric of your shoes. Apply gentle pressure to the bristles so the fabric absorbs the paste.
Cover all of the exterior surfaces of your shoes with the baking soda paste. Let the paste dry onto the shoes for hours. Set the shoes in direct sunlight so the paste can dry or harden. Leave them outside until you can scratch the dried paste with a fingernail. Clap your shoes together and use a dry brush to remove the dried paste. Hit the soles of your shoes together outside so the paste breaks apart and falls to the ground.
Wipe your shoes with a damp cloth to get them wet. Wet the end of a microfiber cloth or towel and gently wipe it across your shoes. Get your shoes slightly damp but not soaking wet so the toothpaste can foam up. Rub a pea-sized dab of toothpaste into the shoes with a toothbrush.
Put the dab of toothpaste directly onto your shoes where there are heavy stains. Spread the toothpaste thin so it coats the entire area before working your toothbrush in small circular motions. Other colors may leave stains on your shoes. Wipe the toothpaste and dirt away with a wet cloth. You can use the same wet cloth as before to wipe the toothpaste off of your shoes. Let your shoes air dry completely for hours.
Set your shoes in front of a fan or in a well-ventilated room. Leave the shoes to completely dry.
