How To Clean Hey Dude Canvas Shoes
Here's what to do if you plan to wash them in the washing machine:

  1. Use a soft bristle brush to remove surface dirt or dust from the shoe.
  2. Set the gentlest washing available in your washing machine or wash them by hand. Make sure the water is cold and use a mild detergent.

There are several ways to dry HEY DUDE shoes. The most recommended way is to dry them in the sun, but not in direct sunlight. This ensures that the shoes are not torn in the dryer as well as allowing sunlight to kill the bacteria typical of footwear. Inserting a sheet of absorbent paper into each shoe while drying in the air is an excellent alternative to eliminate any residual odors. If you prefer to use the dryer remember to set the delicate mode or without heating.

Note: remember to remove the soles of the shoes before putting them in the washing machine.

If you are terrified of ruining your beloved HEY DUDE shoes and refusing to put them in the washing machine, washing them by hand is a good alternative.

Here's what to do if you want to wash them by hand:

  1. Use a soft bristle brush to remove surface dirt or dust from the shoe.
  2. Put some cold water in a bucket or bowl and a small amount of dish soap.
  3. Scrub until you are satisfied with the result and let it dry in the air.


To deodorize the inside of your HEY DUDE shoes, pack a good quantity of sodium bicarbonate in a sachet (a piece of cloth bound to avoid dispersing the contents) and put it inside each shoe.

Note: do not sprinkle baking soda directly into HEY DUDE shoes; it can damage them irreparably.
