Shoe Care

Getting the most out of your shoes requires keeping them in shape. Each model is unique in material and construction and should be cared for differently.

+ Originals

  • After the round, wipe ‘em down to remove any impediments and chemicals you may have accumulated during play

    • The best tool for this is our pack-able Sneaker Wipes you can buy here.

  • Let them air dry indoors; removing the insoles isn’t a bad idea either. For a refreshing smell, inserting a fabric softener sheet overnight does wonders.

  • To maintain the high-quality leather, apply a small amount of leather conditioner to ensure maximum softness and flexibility. Once that leather cracks, there’s no going back.

  • Repeat after each round and #enjoythewalk

+ Knits

  • Your TRUE knit is comprised of 90% polyester and 10% Spandex - so caring for Knits will be more similar to the care you would take with some athletic garments than a leather shoe

  • After a round, make sure you utilize the air hose you'll find at most courses to remove the debris you've collected throughout the round.

  • When thoroughly washing we recommend removing inserts, then washing with cold water and fabric safe-soap - a small amount of laundry detergent or our sneaker kit shoe cleaner. Using a soft rag, sponge or gentle brush, wipe the surface of the shoe gently to remove most stains. After washing, let them air dry, re-install inserts and enjoy.

  • For removing deeper dirt and stains (only when necessary) the Knit is also washing-machine compatible*. Remove inserts, tie the laces tight (or remove) and place shoes in washing machine with like colors (towels recommended). Set machine to a gentle/short wash cycle, using only color safe laundry detergent. After wash, let the shoes air dry, then re-install the inserts and enjoy. DO NOT use clothing dryer or you could damage the fabric/fit of your shoe.

  • For continued lifespan of your water repellency, we recommend treating the surface of the shoe with a water-repellent enhancing product like the one found in our sneaker cleaning kit.
