For sneaker buffs, we have a few hints on how to clean your APL’s from throwing them in the washing machine on select styles to simple cleaning techniques.

Results will vary based on wear, tear, and fabric coloration.

  1. APL TechLoom Pro, TechLoom Phantom, TechLoom Bliss, TechLoom Breeze, TechLoom Wave running shoes and TechLoom Chelsea training shoes and APL Big Logo TechLoom Slides, if they are not metallic, contain crystals, iconic calf hair or Big Logo Sweater Slides, can go in the washing machine on a cool temperature, but not in the dryer as they should be air dried. You need not remove the insoles before washing.
  2. If you have one of our other styles including but not limited to the APL Boomer basketball shoes, Ascend, Lusso and Lusso training shoes along with our APL X Star Wars collection or own a metallic or APL  cashmere or wool knit style, we recommend Jason Markk’s Essential Kit which comes with a liquid cleaner and brush APL does not guarantee cleaning results with these products.
