White sneakers get dirty quickly. Yellow marks appear from dirt and grass. It's possible to remove the stains. If the shoes are washable in the washing machine, try that first. If not, hand scrub the stains. As with any stain removal, it's important to remove the stains as soon as possible. Stains will stick in fabric if left untreated too long.
