How to Clean Canvas Shoes
To find out how to clean canvas shoes, start by taking a look at the material they are made from. Leather or suede shoes will require specialist cleaners. Canvas or cotton shoes with suede detailing should also be cleaned with suede and fabric shampoo according to the instructions on the shoe label. It’s important that suede and leather shoes are not cleaned with detergent or submerged in water, as this can damage and discolour the material.

You have several options when cleaning canvas shoes. Machine-washing them is quick and easy, but risks discolouration and a weakening of the glue that holds the shoes together. Hand washing takes a bit longer, but is a good way of helping your favourite shoes last. Simply applying and wiping or brushing off a specialist cleaning product, as with leather or suede shoes, may also be effective for shoes of mixed fabrics.
