How to Clean Hey Dude shoes?

Hey Dudes are machine washable!

Before putting your shoes in to wash, brush them off with a brush with soft bristles to remove excess dirt. Make sure the washing machine is set for cold water and either the gentle or hand wash cycle. Use a mild/gentle detergent. When the machine is 3/4 full, add in the Hey Dudes. Remember to take out the insoles before washing your shoes!

When drying your Hey Dudes, we recommend opting for the air dry route out of direct sunlight. This will help dry your shoes while also killing any bacteria that may be in them. Adding a dryer sheet also isn’t a bad idea to help remove any lingering odors.

If you are not keen on the idea of machine washing your shoes, you can opt to hand wash them. The process is simple. Again brush off the shoes before washing. Combine cold water and dish soap to scrub your Hey Dudes with. Continue scrubbing until you are satisfied with how clean they are. Rinse in cold water, and leave them to air dry.

For deodorizing the inside of your Hey Dudes, place some baking soda in a piece of cloth, tie it up, and place in the shoes. Note that you should never put baking soda on any part of your Hey Dudes because it could potentially damage them.

How to tighten them:

Hey Dudes’ signature design looks a lot different than your traditional shoe. This is mirrored in their laces as well. The elastic, bungee cord style lace is made to move with your foot while still keeping the shoe secure. You want to be able to easily slip your Hey Dudes on and off. To adjust the lace tighter or looser simply adjust the stopper that holds the lace in place. This stopper helps to keep the lace from slipping while you walk.
