Care of your Sneakers
We want you to enjoy your PUMA footwear for as long as possible. Following some simple steps to look after them will help keep them looking good and performing for you, well into the future.
If your sneakers get wet or dirty, clean them and dry them out as quickly as possible to prevent any long term damage.
PUMA do not ever recommend washing your sneakers in the washing machine, regardless of the material they are made from, as the glue and other fastenings can be damaged and this may stop them performing as expected.
Suede is one of the most delicate fabrics we use for our footwear. We recommend treating your purchase with a suede treatment spray before their first wear.
Suede does't respond well to water, and may mark if worn on wet or rainy days.
If your Suedes get dirty or need a clean, PUMA recommend the use of a specialist suede cleaner and a brush. Do not put your Suedes in the washing machine, tumble dryer, or submerge in water, as the fabric will lose its texture, and the colours may run.
LEATHER / NUBUCK
Leather sneakers are better in wet conditions, although we still don't recommend you submerge them in water or wash in the washing machine. Clean any dirt off your sneakers with a a damp cloth and mild detergent, or specialist leather cleaner and wipe dry.
While the leather dries, stuff your shoes with paper or a dry towel, so they don't lose their shape.
To clean our canvas sneakers, first brush off any excess dirt. Using a mild, non bleaching detergent and a cloth or old toothbrush, to remove stains or marks. While they dry, stuff your shoes with paper or a dry towel to hold their shape.
