Is it safe to wash shoes in the washing machine?
Wash the shoes, insoles, and laces using the gentle cycle.
Put your shoes, insoles, and laces in the washing machine, along with any towels you want to add to the load. Use cold or warm water and little to no spin. Using hot water in the washing machine may cause the glue bonds in your shoes to weaken, crack, or melt.
What is the best way to clean suede shoes?
Grab some plain white vinegar or rubbing alcohol, and pour a bit onto a white washcloth. (Unlike water, vinegar and rubbing alcohol won’t stain suede!) Rub the dampened cloth onto the stain, then let the area dry completely. Once it’s dry, use the brush to fluff the fabric back up and brush away any loosened dirt.

Remove excess dirt first using a soft-bristled brush (shoe brush or old toothbrush) to clean the outsole. Nike doesn’t recommend any alternative cleaning methods, placing your shoes in a washing machine or dryer, or using any other products on your shoes such as bleach or other chemicals.
