Our Guide on How to Wash Your Skechers Shoes
Skechers, founded in 1992, has long been a top brand in the field of lifestyle and performance footwear. For years, shoppers have favoured the award-winning label’s classic designs, exciting kid’s trends, and easy-to-wear garments and accessories. Well-known for their quality and comfort kicks, Skechers shoes are at the forefront of footwear innovation.
Whether you’re looking for running shoes, trainers, or slip-ons, Boundary Outlet is your one-stop shop for casual and sporting footwear. Here’s our guide on how to wash your Skechers shoes, so you can keep your beloved kicks clean and looking like new.
Machine Washable Skechers Shoes
Any style with the “Machine Washable” icon shown on the product detail page can be safely machine washed on the gentle cycle and air-dried, we suggest placing them in a pillowcase or laundry bag before washing them in the machine. Please wash your shoes one at a time to avoid discolouration. Do not place shoes in the dryer. For shoes with Skechers Memory Foam insoles, allow shoes and insoles to air dry for 10 to 12 hours to ensure the insoles are fully dry. You can also apply a protectant such as Skechers Water Proof Spray to protect the shoes from water and stains while you’re wearing them.
How to Wash Skechers Go-Walk in the Washing Machine
Fill a bucket halfway with water and a small amount of detergent, then put your shoes in a mesh bag. Place the bag in the water and soak the shoes until they are completely wet right the way through. Then, using cold water, wash them on a gentle cycle. When finished, take the shoes out and thoroughly rinse them before laying them in the sun for a while to dry completely. Another thing to keep in mind while washing your Skechers Go-Walk is to never wash both shoes at the same time to avoid discolouration.
How to Clean Nylon/Mesh Skechers (Not Specified as “Machine Washable”)
If your Skechers shoes are not machine washable, don’t panic, simply remove excess dirt from the surface and sole with a soft brush or a damp cloth. Then, combine warm water and a tiny bit of laundry detergent to make a soapy solution. Again, carefully rub the soapy liquid into filthy areas with a soft brush or damp cloth until they are clean. Then, using a clean, dry cloth, remove any excess soap and detergent. Allow shoes to air dry naturally, out of direct sunshine or heat.
How to Clean Your Leather Skechers
A bonus tip for how to keep your leather Skechers clean is to use a protectant, such as Skechers Water Proofer Spray to protect the shoes from water and stains before wearing them in wet conditions. This will keep them cleaner for longer as leather Skechers shoes are not machine washable. Apply a leather cleaning lotion or spray to the leather. When used with a dry towel, Skechers sports cleaner works wonders. Apply the leather lotion or oil regularly to maintain the leather’s supple and vibrant look.
How to Clean Your Suede or Nubuck Skechers
Suede may be difficult to clean since you don’t want to scuff it and lose the velvety texture, we all know and love. Again, spraying the waterproof protectant spray will keep the shoes dry and free of stains while you’re out and about. If necessary, clean the shoes with a suede or nubuck cleaning agent and brush them with a suede brush for the best results. Machine washing suede or nubuck shoes may cause the colours to fade and the suede to scuff.
How to Clean Your Light-Up Skechers
Machine washing light-up shoes is not advised as it may damage the lights. The electronic components in the LED lights are not made to survive a trip through the washing machine. Submerging light-up shoes in water, whether it be washing machines, swimming pools, or even heavy rain is not advised. They will get soaked or bumped around, potentially damaging the electronic components. However, you can clean them with a mild soap mixture, warm water, and a soft cloth or use baby wipes, damp sponges, or the down-and-dirty scrub approach.
