How Should I Clean My New Balance Shoes?

The suggested cleaning method for New Balance athletic shoes is to use a light bristle brush (an old toothbrush works well) and a mild detergent (either dishwashing or laundry). Please be sure to use a detergent free from dye to avoid staining. We recommend a spot check with the detergent to ensure no staining will occur. Scrub the shoes with the brush and use a damp cloth to wipe clean. Allow the shoes to thoroughly air dry for 24 hours. To eliminate and prevent shoe odor, use a shoe deodorizer spray.

Putting shoes through a washing machine cycle is NOT recommended, as some shoe materials should not be exposed to heat or submerged in water.

When purchasing a cleaning product-be sure that it is silicone-based to prevent any possible damage to your shoes.

Suede or leather shoes require suede or leather cleaner, respectively. For best results, always follow the instructions included with the cleaning product.
