You can make your Yeezys seem as good as new with the steps outlined in this article. With the help of our useful advice, scuffs and stains will become a thing of the past.

Can You Put Yeezys in the Washer?

It may be tempting to throw your dirty Yeezys into the washing machine when you’re cleaning them at home, but resist the urge. However, this is dependant on the particular pair of Yeezys that you own. A washing machine can be used to clean shoes in a few different ways:

  • Yeezys 350
  • Yeezys 380
  • Yeezys 450

The following items should not be cleaned in the machine:

  • Yeezys Foam Runner
  • Yeezys Slides
  • Yeezys 700
  • Yeezys 500

Since the foam, suede, and other sensitive materials used in the construction of these four editions exclude their use in a washing machine, one should avoid doing so.

Even though you may put the Yeezy 350, 380, and 450 in the washing machine to clean them, hand cleaning is the most effective way to keep your Yeezys from getting damaged.

What is the Best Way to Clean Yeezys?

Hand washing and using spot treatments are the most effective methods for cleaning Yeezy sneakers. If you choose not to wash the shoes in the washing machine, you avoid the possibility that the machine will damage the shoes in any way.

Additionally, it is dependent on the model of Yeezy shoes that you own. The 350, 380, and 450 series are all constructed using a fabric and rubber composite material. They are versatile enough to withstand either a light spin in the washing machine or a more severe scrub. Because the majority of the materials used in the construction of the other series are either rubber, suede, leather, or foam, the manner in which you clean and care for your Yeezys needs to be adjusted accordingly.

Yeezys 350

How to clean Yeezys 350, 380, and 450 will be similar. The best way to clean these Yeezys starts with removing the soles and laces. You’ll then use a cleaning solution of your choice, lukewarm water, and a gentle scrubbing brush to spot clean stains and marks.

If your Yeezys are particularly dirty, you can take advantage of your washing machine. Place the Yeezys in a pillowcase or a mesh laundry bag. Wash the shoes on the most gentle and coldest setting before air drying.

Wash your laces and insoles separately with soapy water and a soft-bristled brush.

Yeezys 700

The 700 series, along with the Foam Runner, Slides, and 500 series, should be washed more carefully.

We’ll also share different tips for the different types of Yeezys. So no matter what series you own, these tips can help.

  • Time: 30-45 minutes
  • Difficulty: Intermediate

Let’s dive into the best methods for cleaning Yeezys without a washing machine.

1. Remove Laces and Insoles

Before you start, remove the laces and insoles. We will clean those separately later.

2. Brush Off Excess Dirt

Use a shoe cleaning brush to brush off any excess dirt. This will make it easier to clean the shoes in the following steps. Always make sure to use the correct shoe brush, depending on the material. For instance, use a suede shoe brush if you have a suede shoe.

An all-purpose shoe brush is fine for Yeezys 350, 380, and 450.

3. Mix Cleaning Solution

You can use a store-bought cleaning solution for deep cleaning your shoes and removing stains. These are more heavy-duty cleaners, and we recommend them if your Yeezys are filthy. Always make sure to choose a shoe cleaner that is suitable for your Yeezys’ materials.

If you want to clean your Yeezys without a shoe cleaner, you can make your own. Mix a 1:1 ratio of distilled white vinegar and lukewarm water. This is an eco-friendly, non-toxic, but effective cleaner.

4. Brush Shoes With Solution

Using your shoe brush, apply the cleaning solution to the main part of the shoe. Don’t clean the soles and bottom right now. Just focus on the top. Brush in circular motions until you notice the stains lifting and the shoes becoming cleaner.

Keep going with this step if you’re aiming to unyellow your white Yeezys. Don’t be nervous about rubbing quite vigorously if cleaning Yeezys 350, 380, and 450s.

For suede Yeezys, don’t use any cleaning solution. Just make sure to use a dry suede brush to remove dirt.

For leather and lycra Yeezys, skip the cleaning solution and use a mild detergent or dish soap instead. Mix together a couple of tablespoons into a couple of cups of lukewarm water. Trade out the shoe brush for a soft cloth.

For foam Yeezys and slides, use a soft-bristle brush and soapy water. Skip a shoe cleaning solution. You must be very careful with these Yeezys.

5. Clean Yeezys Soles

Once the top of the shoe is clean, move onto the sole. Make sure to hold the shoe vertically so that you don’t drip any dirty water from the bottom of the shoes back onto the clean top.

Follow the same method as above, depending on what type of Yeezys you have. The only difference is for suede Yeezys, you should use a pencil eraser to clean the soles.

6. Rinse Shoes With Damp Cloth

Dampen a clean cloth with water. Gently rub the entire shoe to remove excess dirt, cleaning solution, and debris.

7. Air Dry Yeezys

Let your Yeezys air dry in a cool breezy spot. This can take around 24 hours, so be patient.

8. Clean Laces and Insoles

While your Yeezys are drying, it’s time to clean the laces and insoles.

To clean the laces, mix a 5:1 solution of water and dish soap. Soak the laces in the solution for 20 minutes before gently scrubbing them with a soft-bristled shoe brush. Work to remove dirt and stains, but don’t apply too much pressure as this can fray the laces.

Hang the laces and let them air dry.

Create the same 5:1 solution of water and dish soap for the insoles. Dip the soft-bristled brush into the mixture and gently scrub the insoles. Continue until they are clean. When finished, wipe them with a dampened cloth. Air dry them along with the Yeezys.

How to Clean Yeezys In Washing Machine

If your Yeezys are really dirty and the above method isn’t working, you can utilize the power of your washing machine. Please note that we only recommend this method for Yeezys 350, 380, and 450.

Firstly, remove the laces and insoles and clean them separately using our above method. Wipe the Yeezys with a shoe brush to remove excess dirt. Place the shoes in a pillowcase or mesh laundry bag. Secure the pillowcase or bag shut. Pour a small amount of mild detergent into the machine — about half of what you’d typically use. Put the shoes in the machine and set it to a delicate cycle with cold water. Run the machine. After the cycle, let the Yeezys air dry in a cool breezy spot.

How Can You Tell If Yeezys are Fake?

Uh-oh. Do you suspect you’ve been tricked into buying a fake pair of Yeezys? Here’s how you can tell real Yeezys vs. fake:

  • The tag on the shoe should match the one on the box’s label. Counterfeit Yeezys might try and pass their shoes as real by using original Yeezys packaging, but does the serial number match?
  • The heel tab on real Yeezys is only a few millimeters away from the ankle collar. On fake Yeezys, the tab is much further back.
  • Check the logo. On fake Yeezys, the logo tends to take up a lot more space.
  • If the label says “Sample Made in China” rather than just “Made in China”, it’s a fake pair.
  • Fake Yeezys have white text on both insoles, and they don’t mirror images of each other. Real Yeezys will read “Adidas Yeezy” in the trademark Adidas trefoil. The text will be a dark gray and a mirrored image of each other.
  • Check the outsole of the shoe. For instance, there’s a white flower-like embossing on the bottom of the Boost shoes. Fake Yeezys often forget these small intricate details.
  • The backstitching on fake Yeezys is often very messily done. On real Yeezys, the backstitching is very neat: an ‘X’ shape followed by a square, on repeat.
  • Real Yeezys have nine red dots on the rectangle part of the heel tab.
  • Check the price. Real Yeezys usually cost at least $200. If you find Yeezys for less than that and they’re not from an authorized seller, then they’re most likely fake.

Why Do Yeezys Cost So Much?

The reason why Yeezys cost so much is because supply is deliberately limited to maintain its exclusivity. The resale market is also fiercely controlled to help keep prices high.

How Do You Get the Smell Out of Yeezys?

There are several ways to get the smell out of Yeezys, including filling a sock with cat litter or baking soda or placing them outside to air in the sunshine.

Can You Wear Yeezys In the Rain?

You can wear Yeezys in the rain but you probably shouldn’t. You can protect them with a waterproof spray like Scotchgard Fabric Water Shield.
