    So to say the least at the Kentucky State Shoot it was a little muddy, the shoes I shoot in are incredibly muddy and dirty, is it possible to wash these shoes in a washing machine? If so any special instructions? I don't want to ruin the shoes or the machine.

    I wash my New Balance shoes, but I let them air dry.

    Cleaning instruction should be inside the shoes.

    We wash all our running shoes in washing machine. Here's a tip, because most running shoes will float on water, we wash them with cleaning cloths.

    Take the laces and insoles out. Hand wash those separate. Put the washer on gentle cycle and wash with a couple old towels. Make sure to hose off all the heavy dirt/mud before putting them in the washing machine. As pointed out above, air dry.

    Wear them without socks and slosh around in your bathtub for a while with some dishwashing liquid as a cleanser. Rinse and let air dry.

    Take insole out. Take laces off. Place in washing machine, and air dry.
