Vibram FiveFingers Aftercare
Like any shoe, Vibram FiveFingers will accumulate dirt and debris – especially if being worn outside for running. Our advice for maintaining the condition of your Vibram FiveFingers is to wash them regularly under the tap and then leave them to air dry.
Vibram FiveFingers can be washed in a traditional washing machine, but should always be washed using a gentle, cold water cycle with a non-bio liquid or powdered detergent. Vibram FiveFingers should never be put onto a radiator or in a tumble dryer as the high temperatures will damage the glue that is used to bond the shoes together.
A great tip when air-drying your Vibram FiveFingers is to place newspaper inside the shoes to absorb any moisture. This will speed up the time it takes for them to dry.
Another great feature of Vibram FiveFingers is that they are pre-treated to fight bacteria, which helps reduce the frequency of needing to clean them.
