How to Clean Your Running Shoes

There’s nothing like a fresh pair of shoes. The cushion is bouncy, the tread is grippy, and the upper is pristine—not a speck of dirt in sight. That first run feels amazing, but comes with a touch of trepidation. When you’re running in your untarnished beauties, the last thing you want is to get them dirty.

Once you get caught in a downpour and unavoidable mudfest, you may be wondering, “can I put my running shoes into the washing machine?” While that would be easier than a hand wash, we don’t recommend it. Along with the heat from a washing machine, many types of laundry detergent can damage the color and adhesives in running shoes, causing them to break down faster.
