What You Need to Clean Your Shoes

All you need to clean your Hokas is a little water and mild soap.

Mix the soap with water in a bucket or a spray bottle, and then give your shoes a good scrubbing. (Make sure you use a soft brush or cloth so you don’t damage the surface of the shoes.)

Once clean, please rinse them with fresh water and let them air dry.

How Often You Should Clean Your Shoes

How often you should clean your shoes depends on a few things: the type of shoe, the type of material, and how dirty they get. In general, you should try to clean your shoes at least once a week.

If your shoes are made of a light material, like mesh or synthetic suede, you can clean them every other day. But suppose they’re made of a heavier material, like leather or canvas. In that case, you should wait until they get really dirty before cleaning them.

To clean your Hoka shoes, use a damp cloth to wipe them down. Get into all the nooks and crannies and remove any excess dirt or mud. You can use a toothbrush to scrub it off if there’s any caked-on mud or dirt.

Once they’re clean, let them air dry overnight. And if you want to give them a little extra TLC, you can apply a coat of shoe polish.
