First do double check that your style is designated as safe and suitable for machine washing. Most PLAE shoes are but we don't recommend washing the full grain leather styles such as the Roan or those with decorative materials as it will alter the look or feel of the product.
Most of the Ty trainers however are suitable for occasional machine washing.
Follow the steps below;

For all over leather styles, wipe down with a slightly damp washcloth and leave to dry. Do not dry in direct sunlight or over a heat source such as a radiator, fire or Aga.
Once the shoes are dry apply a natural wax polish to nourish the leather and prolong its life. We recommend the Chainbridge Honey Farm Beeswax Polish which is made from natural beeswax to give a nice shine whilst helping waterproofing the leather .
