Puma shoes are designed to be sturdy and long-lasting shoes. With minimal care, Puma shoes can look new for a long time. For best results, clean your Pumas as soon as they become dirty. Regular cleaning not only keeps the shoes looking better, it makes them last longer.
Things You'll Need
Remove the footbed from the inside of the shoes. The footbed is the inner part of the shoe that your foot sits on.
Clean the footbed using a clean cloth that has been dampened with water and mild soap. Shampoo, liquid hand soap or dishwashing soap works well. Set the footbed aside and allow to air dry in a dry environment that is away from extreme heat and direct sunlight.
Wipe loose dirt off the outer surface of the shoes using a clean cloth.
Remove dried mud on the outer surface of the shoes by using a clean cloth to gently scrape off the mud from the shoe surface. Using anything other than a cloth will leave visible scratches on the shoe surface.
Clean the outer surface of your canvas, imitation leather, leather or nylon Pumas using a clean cloth that has been dampened with water and mild soap (shampoo, liquid hand soap or dishwashing soap). Scrub in circular motions until dirt debris is removed. Set the shoes aside and allow them to air dry in a dry place that is away from extreme heat and direct sunlight.
Clean the outer surface of your suede Pumas by brushing them with a suede brush to loosen and remove dirt and debris.
Replace the dry footbeds inside the shoes.
Do not wash Puma shoes in a washing machine, and do not dry them in a clothes dryer. These appliances can ruin the structure of the shoes.
