• Clean Sperry's Stain - All you need to do to clean Sperry shoes is have a toothbrush, dish washing detergent, and some warm water. Use the toothbrush to scrub any dirt off of the shoe and let air dry.


  • Put your shoes in the washing machine to remove large stains. If your Sperrys still have stains after hand-washing, set your washing machine to a gentle cycle with cool water. Add half the normal amount of laundry detergent and allow your washing machine to run a full cycle. Air dry your Sperrys.

    Likewise, can sperrys get wet? While Sperrys arent technically waterproof, they are water-friendly and its more than OK to get them wet (they were created for slippery boat decks, after all). Sperrys are water-friendly and getting them wet will only add to their character—even if your day on the water goes overboard.

    Similarly one may ask, can you put boat shoes in the washer?

    No, you should not put your leather boat shoes in the washing machine. Leather contains natural oils which allow it to remain supple and comfortable. Putting your shoes through a wash cycle will remove those oils and dry out the leather, making it less comfortable and more likely to crack.

    How do I stop my sperrys from smelling?

    White Vinegar Soak some paper towels in a bowl of vinegar and stuff them into your Sperry Top Siders (or any boat shoe). Allow to sit overnight and remove towels the next day. Place outside to air-dry. The heat from the sun is also wonderful at disinfecting and will kill any other bacteria still in your shoe.
