The suggested cleaning method for New Balance shoes is to use a light bristle brush (old tooth brush) and a light detergent (dishwashing or laundry). Scrub the shoes with the brush and use a damp cloth to wipe clean, you can also immerse them in water. Allow shoes to air dry thoroughly for about twenty-four hours.
If purchasing a cleaning product, be sure that it is silicon-based to prevent any possible damage to the footwear.
Putting shoes through a washing machine cycle is NOT recommended.
**Note that if you have suede shoes or leather shoes you would need to use a suede or leather cleaner. Follow the instructions on the brand of cleaner you are using to clean your shoes.
