Do you ever wash your shoes?

I am totally serious here. I just threw in the wash a pair of short fake Ugg boots that I paid only like $10 for as a guinea pig for washing shoes. Cant say Ive ever done it. So I am waiting in trepidation to see if they make it through the wash....and then the dryer! I have a pair of Chuck Taylors (sneakers) that I paid too much that I want to try it on too - I have abused them for too long. Have you ever washed sneakers? Have you ever done this? Or washed them in a different way? Did anything get ruined?

I haven't personally but I can remember my grandmother throwing our sneakers in the wash before. I don't know if the newer washers can withstand it. The only thing you don't want to put in to wash is suede. Firs (on things like uggs) should be fine. Good Luck.

No, as usually my shoes are not that dirty that I need to wash them. But I do take a wet cloth to just wipe away the dust or dirt on the shoes, especially if they are a slightly more expensive pair. I don't spend too much on shoes since I am going to wear them around... so as long they don't cause blisters and look relatively nice, I'll buy them.
