We love the look of boat shoes, but after a long, hot summer, they can get a touch ripe.
.Before you put your Sperry away for the winter, freshen them up! Smelly boat shoes aren’t nearly as difficult to clean as you might think. How to clean leather boat shoes? Just stick them in the washing machine, preferably in a mesh bag to keep them from bouncing around and getting torn up. If your boat shoes are a little long in the tooth, you might be concerned about their stitching. In that case, forgo the agitation of the washing machine and launder them by hand. Another simple trick — pop your boat shoes in the freezer to kill odor-causing bacteria.
And of course, if your shoes are in need of professional cleaning, see one of our leather-and-suede consultants. Not in New York? No problem — we clean and ship worldwide!
