For best results, clean your Nike shoes immediately after exposing them to dirt. HOW TO CLEAN NIKE SHOES Remove excess dirt first using a soft-bristled brush (shoe brush or old toothbrush) to clean the outsole. Mix warm water and a small amount of laundry detergent to create a slightly soapy mixture. Apply a small amount of the water/detergent mixture to a sponge, soft cloth or soft brush and clean affected areas. Apply a small amount of warm water to another sponge or soft cloth to remove any excess detergent. Air dry the shoes at room temperature. Repeat these steps to attempt to remove persistent stains. Nike doesn’t recommend any alternative cleaning methods, placing your shoes in a washing machine or dryer, or using any other products on your shoes such as bleach or other chemicals. Saddle soap can soften leather and is recommended only on leather components of shoes that aren’t subjected to excessive stress. Don’t use saddle soap on soccer cleats, basketball shoes, golf shoes, training shoes or any other shoes designed for activities involving lateral movement. CLEANING INSOLES TO REDUCE SHOE ODOR Remove the insoles from your shoes. Follow the same shoe cleaning steps listed above. Air dry completely before putting the insoles back in the shoes. If these steps don’t reduce shoe odor, replace the insoles. Replacement insoles are available at most sporting goods and shoe stores.

Clean and deodorize your insoles. Using a slightly soapy mixture of liquid detergent and warm water, gently scrub your insoles with a soft brush or rag. Afterward, soak up any excess soapy water with a sponge and allow them to air dry completely before placing them back in your shoes. /images/thumb/f/f0/Wash-Shoes-Step-3-Version-6.jpg/550px-Wash-Shoes-Step-3-Version-6.jpg /images/thumb/f/f0/Wash-Shoes-Step-3-Version-6.jpg/300px-Wash-Shoes-Step-3-Version-6.jpg /a/a3/Wash Shoes Step 3 Version 4.360p.mp4 // If your insoles still smell, enclose them in a bag with baking soda, shake it around evenly, and leave them overnight. If your insoles still smell, soak them for a few hours in a 2:1 mixture of vinegar and water. Then soak them a while in a mixture of warm water, baking soda, and an essential oil, such as tea tree or pine oil.

Warnings Be careful if you use the dryer to dry your shoes, as excessive heat may warp your shoes’ soles. Check the manufacturer’s instructions before attempting to clean your shoes, as some shoes require special treatment. If the shoes are expensive or delicate, it may be best to hand wash them or take them to a professional cleaner. Because of the risk of damaging shoes in a washing machine, it may be best to wash them no more than once a year, or if they get very dirty. Water Proofing shoes: You can easily waterproof your shoes to help resist from mud, erosion, and dirt, by dripping and polishing candle wax (I would recommend white or clear wax to avoid discoloring the shoe) and then polishing all around. Be careful not to use waxes that have artificial smells, colors, or any additives to keep from ruining your shoes.
