While most shoe materials can withstand a cleaning with mild soap and water, some materials, such as suede, require special cleaners.
If your shoes have laces and insoles, remove them and clean them separately.
Use a soft brush to remove loose dirt from the shoes.
Use a sponge or soft brush dipped in a mixture of mild soap and water to clean all surfaces of the shoes. Be careful not to saturate the shoes with water, which can cause glue to soften and lose its grip.
Allow the shoes to air dry. Excessive heat from a drier can damage the shoe material and soften glue that holds pieces of the shoes together.
