How to clean hemp sneakers and shoes?
A dry brush or a wet cloth will do. Alternatively, if your shoes are more than a little dirty, you can also use a sensitive washing powder. We recommend cleaning only by hand, not in the washing machine, as this, in combination with warm water and powder, could damage the construction of the shoe and the connection of the fabric with the natural rubber sole. We also recommend you impregnate your shoes before using them. Therefore they stay clean longer and it's generally easier to maintain them. If you're buying our barefoot shoes from vegan suede, try the nano impregnation which we tested and picked just for this type of material.
