Shoes inevitably get grimy from sweat and dirt, even when you take care of them, so it’s nice to have pairs that you can throw in the washing machine when they start to stink and/or look worse for wear.  Shoes crafted from non-animal leather and natural textile fabrics can go in the machine with no problem. This occasional ritual can refresh your shoes to keep them feeling clean and looking like new for longer, and can help prevent problems like athlete’s foot since fungal infections thrive in warm, moist environments.

Typically, the best machine washable shoes should be washed on the gentle cycle in cold water and left out to air dry. Another tip to keep in mind: If possible, make sure to remove the insoles. Since they’re generally made from synthetic materials and foam, it’s important not to get them to saturated when cleaning. Instead, they can easily be washed by hand with some soap and water or simply aired out.

Here, FN pulled together a selection of the best machine-washable shoes for women ready from popular brands like Rothy’s, Allbirds, Superga and more.
