    I would use Dawn and warm water and an old toothbrush Imma.

    White toothpaste and a damp toothbrush. A dab of toothpaste on the brush. Brush and let it foam up. Wipe off as you go along to see progress. I use it on a lot of stuff I sell on Ebay. Sneakers come out looking good as new. Also works on copper, brass, gold, silver, porcelain, ceramics, plastics, jewelry, etc. For my sales I needed one product for cleaning everything.

    Hi Imma. Begin by cleaning your walking shoes. You should try to knock off any big dirt and clumps. Then clean with lukewarm water and a brush. Don't use detergents as this can affect the material. Remove the laces to clean those hard to reach places. Then dry. Stuff the shoes with newspapers and let them dry naturally. Do not put them near a fire or radiator because it can cause the shoes to crack or warp.

    Hi Imma,

    Here's a guide for care and cleaning of your walking shoes:

    I always wipe mine down with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, followed by a spritz of Windex. If they are still dirty, try wiping with some nail polish remover on a tissue. Cover any white spots with White-Out for typos.

    Hi Imma: I'd use a magic eraser dipped in warm water and Dawn. Rinse and let dry. If they are leather, I'd spray them with waterproofing, too. Good luck

    Awesome spray cleaner from the dollar store gets off most dirt and grime especially if the soles are light colored. Spray, scrub with a plastic dish scrubber then wipe with a damp towel. It they are cloth use dish detergent and a rag wrung out to wipe surface dirt off.

    You can clean the soles with a Mr Clean Magic Eraser!
