#3 Canvas

Canvas is a durable cotton blend fabric that has been used in Hey dude Shoes’ factories for a long time.

#4 Wool

Shoes made from animal fibers such as wool shoes can only be hand washed. You can not wash by washing machine. The pressure in your washing machine can harm your lovely shoes. So here is the way to clean your wool shoes correctly:

#5 Faux-Fur

Faux-fur is a man-made material that looks and feels very similar to real fur. Hey Dude uses faux fur mostly for lining boots, but also for decorative purposes. Boots with faux fur lining are perfect for winter because they keep your toes extra toasty!

Faux-fur is a man-made material that is suitable for boots. It is nice for you to wear faux-fur shoes in winter but I am so sure that most people do not know how to clean these shoes.

– Add one teaspoon of baking soda into your shoes for 24 hours. Add some baby shampoo to a wet soft cloth and clean the faux-fur details.

– If the area of stains is too big, use a wet toothbrush to brush the stains.
