CARING FOR KEEN PRODUCTS
Sandal Washing Instructions
All KEEN water sandals (both leather and polyester webbing upper) are machine washable and have been treated with AEGIS Microbe Sheild, antimicrobial technology that helps prevent odor, staining and deterioration. We've also taken great care to develop leather uppers that will not crack, shrink or stretch when washed. Even KEEN leather Newport sandals are machine washable. Use a small amount of detergent, wash on gentle cycle and air dry.
Caring for Leather
We've carefully selected leather uppers designed to last. Then again, if you're wearing your KEENS daily, they won't always be scuff and dirt-free. We recommend using a nubuck leather cleaner and conditioner (Nikwax is a brand we like) found at most better footwear dealers and outdoor gear shops.
Caring for Waterproof/Breathable
To enhance product performance, we recommend cleaning your footwear in cold water with mild soap or detergent, and then let air dry without heat.
Caring for Synthetics
We recommend wiping these products with a towel saturated cold water and mild soap. To remove excess dirt or to spot clean, use a stiff brush or soft cloth. Let shoes air dry without heat.
Caring for Footbeds
After extended use, we recommend you remove the footbed, wash by hand using a soft cloth and light detergent, and then let air dry without heat.
Caring for Wool
Wool shoes should be cleaned with light brushing. If they are really soiled, use a spot-removing foam, then brush them. Please do not put wool shoes in the washing machine.
