It’s an age-old story: reluctantly throwing away your favorite pair of shoes because they’re dirty beyond repair. Thankfully, there are some footwear options on the market that can easily be thrown in the washing machine so you can avoid this devastating scenario (as well as some tedious last-ditch efforts to clean them via a toothbrush) once and for all.
From knit sneakers to relaxed slip-on styles, we’ve rounded a range machine washable shoes for men you’ll be eager to rock this fall. Just remember to remove any insoles first, if possible, and let them air dry. See styles from Superga, New Balance, Swims and more.
Superga 2750 Cotu Sneaker
Featuring a sturdy canvas upper and rubber outsole, this classic Superega style is machine washable on a cold, gentle cycle.
New Balance RCVRYv1
These mesh New Balance kicks, featuring a plush foam footbed and shock-absorbing midsole for extra comfort, will dry especially fast once you take them out of the washer.
Propet Wash & Wear Slip-on
A luxe suede upper (that, yes, is washer-friendly) makes this slip-on style especially on-trend for the season. Bonus: It even comes with a removable foam insole for additional support.
Swims Breeze Tennis Washable Knit Sneaker
An open weave mesh design elevates this sleek athleisure style, which can easily be buffed with a quick run in the washing machine.
Swims Penny Loafer
Worn with socks, a casual penny loafer will be your go-to look on chilly fall days — especially when it’s as easy to clean as this pair. Inconspicuous rubber upper and mesh inserts help ward off dirt in the first place while also making a pop in the washer and post-dry process a cinch when needed.
