How to Clean Yeezys

Whether you are one of the lucky ones who was able to cop an original Yeezy or just recently landed a pair through the general releases, you are going to want to keep your sneakers in tip top shape. Luckily, we have an easy method you can do from home.

Step 1 

Remove shoe laces, and insert plastic shoe tree. (We like this plastic one, which can be used in water without concern of warping or damage.)

Step 2

Dip the brush in a bowl filled with water and cleaning solution mixture (Here is a non-toxic and eco-friendly cleaner we recommend.) Start with a soft brush, perfect for Yeezy’s delicate knitted material - scrubbing in circular motions. 

Step 3

On the midsole, scrub using a medium bristle brush and solution mix. For the sole, move to a stiffer brush (the boost is safe with a stiffer bristle.) 

How to know which brush to use?

Soft Brush is great for suede, knit, mesh, and nubuck.


Medium Brush is great for canvas, leather, rubber, and plastic. 

Stiff Brush is great for soles. 

Step 4

Once you are satisfied with how the shoe looks, place the shoes into a laundry bag, soles together. Place the laundry bag into the washing machine, using cold water and a normal cycle. (We prefer this non-toxic laundry detergent.)

Step 5

Remove the shoes from washing machine promptly and set to air dry.
