How do I clean and protect my SeaVees?Updated 2 years ago

If your SeaVees could use a glow-up, we have plenty of tips for you. Whatever you do, *avoid putting your sneakers in the washing machine at all costs! 


We suggest you purchase SeaVees Protector to ensure the longevity of your sneakers. Our spray is an all natural solution formulated to preserve your sneakers no matter the material. (This spray is a prevention agent not meant for cleaning)

You may also find other safe protectant sprays at your local drug store.

Cleaning Tips

For sidewalls, we carry wipes which do a great job removing dust, dirt, and enhancing shine to your sidewalls. You can find the “Clean It Up” Wipes in our goods section. A magic eraser or towel with some dish soap can also get the job done!

Stains on your SeaVees? We have found that our linen, twill, and canvas sneakers can be easily cleaned with a stain removal pen. After a few applications, our team has removed stains such as hot sauce and coffee. You may also concoct a paste using stain removal powder and water. Gently apply the paste with an old sock, rag or towel to try and remove the stain.

We are still working on other delicate materials such as suede, leather and satin and suggest you consult a local cobbler or shoe repair store before attempting to *clean your SeaVees.

We do not recommend machine washing your SeaVees. Exposing your SeaVees to water could alter the look of the material. If you choose to do so please note that it is at your own risk.

Shoes that have been washed are no longer covered under our warranty

Still not sure? Please get in touch and we can help.
