How to wash shoes:
We recommend following these directions to keep your shoes looking and performing their best. Do not use a washer or dryer machine for cleaning our shoes, as they can be too aggressive and cause the shoes to stretch or warp compromising the materials and performance of the shoe.
- Remove the internal liner and brush off any dirt or debris.
- Start with the upper: use a soft brush and cold water to remove the debris stuck in the upper layers of material. This will reduce friction created by the debris in between the layers of the upper. Make sure not to submerge or soak the shoes in water.
- Move to the outsole: use your brush to remove the dirt collected in the lugs and grooves of the outsole, here you can use more water than on the upper.
- On the midsole, if you want your shoes to look brighter, you can use a toothbrush to get into every small crevice.
How to dry a wet shoe:
Stuff your shoes with newsprint (plain if you have it) and allow them to air dry in a cool room, not exposed to excess light or heat (dryer, heater, sunlight). Heat and sun rays may alternate the lamination and the colors of your shoes. When they are all dried out which may take a couple of days, you can reinsert the liner and hit the road again
Depending on how wet they get and the method of drying, running shoes can encounter adverse results. If a performance running shoe is worn through rain, submerged and/or soaked, the materials may lose quality in elasticity, softness, cushion, and overall last.
