    No, water and soap will remove oils that keep the leather soft and flexible. It will dramatically reduce the lifespan of your shoes.

    Anything is possible but definitely wouldn't advise it.

    NO!!!! It will ruin the seams on the shoes. Try a leather cleaner or even just soap and water.

    Wipe them with a damp cloth and sprinkle baking soda inside to absorb odors.

    Yes, machine washing is fine..... pull the insole out from the shoe if possible for better cleaning. To dry pull tongue forward and clip down with cloths pin. Do NOT put them in the dryer or sun. Just park the in a well ventilated area to dry.

    Yes, I have done it myself. When drying them I stuff them with newspaper and dry them outdoors.

  • Yes, I have, on the gentle cycle and sat on an old towel out of direct sunlight to dry.
