Clean the shoes – Dip a soft-bristled brush into the soapy water and gently scrub the shoes, paying extra attention to any areas that are particularly dirty. Avoid scrubbing too hard or using too much water, as this could damage the shoes. Use a soft cloth or sponge to clean any areas that are too delicate to be brushed.
Rinse the shoes – Rinse the shoes thoroughly with lukewarm water to remove all of the soap. Make sure to rinse the shoes well to avoid leaving any soap residue that can cause discoloration or damage.
Air dry the shoes – Stuff the shoes with paper towels or a clean towel to help them retain their shape while drying. Allow the shoes to air dry completely, away from direct heat or sunlight. Avoid wearing the shoes until they are completely dry, as this can cause them to stretch or lose their shape.
