I am not trying to be flip when I say this….but have you tried throwing them in the washer? They will really clean up very well. Take out the laces and the inner liner (if it is not glued in) and wash them all separately w/ regular laundry detergent.

They will be a little stiff the first time you use them but thereafter they will be fine.

(Wash in a regular or gentle cycle….anything stronger might tear the shoes apart)
