Wash and care instructions for our Tabi Sneakers

Prep: Grab a gentle detergent, a mesh garment bag (optional), and for a thorough clean, use a soft brush like an old toothbrush.

Step 1

Remove the insoles from your Tabis.

Step 2

Use the soft brush and some soapy water to wipe down your insoles and squeeze out as much water as possible from the insole. Pro deodorizing tip: sprinkle insoles with baking soda and let it sit overnight before removing the baking soda.

Step 3

Clean the bottom of the shoes with the soft brush and soapy water before placing into a mesh bag.

Step 4

Place the shoes into the washer with some old towels to balance the load (old towels work best to make sure dye doesn't bleed onto your shoes).

Step 5

Set the washer to delicate, cold water cycle, and select a slow or no-spin motion. Start the wash using liquid detergent (if you use a powder detergent, first dissolve completely in warm water).

Step 6

Air dry your shoes. You can hang them up, or just place them in a sunny spot! Place the insoles right back in for a clean pair of Tabis.
