Can Yeezy 350 Go In The Washing Machine?

Yes, you can wash your Yeezy 350 in the washing machine! Make sure you put them in a laundry bag, set the cycle to normal with cold water, and wash them clean.

Before you put your Yeezy 350s in the washing machine, make sure to remove the insoles. It's also a good idea to remove as much dirt as you can from the outsoles using a soft cloth or gentle brush.

Once you have removed the insoles and removed dirt, place each shoe into a laundry bag or a pillowcase if you don’t have a laundry bag. Secure it and put it into the washing machine. Set the cycle to normal and make sure you set it to cold water to prevent any damage.

Once the shoes have been washed, make sure you air dry them.

Can you wear Yeezys in the rain?

Since most Yeezys like Yeezy 350 and Yeezy 380 have a fabric upper, it’s not a good idea to wear them in the rain since they will easily get wet and no one likes wearing soggy shoes. However, if you’re lucky enough to own the Yeezy 950 boots, you can wear them in the rain.

It's important to know that a little bit of water won’t necessarily ruin your Yeezys. However, in terms of comfort, wearing them in the rain isn’t a good idea.

The Yeezy 950 is an exception since it’s designed to be water-proof with its Cordura upper and is hence suitable for rainy weather.
