autumnrose Posted September 11, 2008 Report Share Posted September 11, 2008 The marley floors in DD's studio, together with her busy ballet schedule this year, really made a mess of the canvas shoes (Sansha 1C pro) she started wearing only 4 weeks ago. So, this ballet mom thought she could wash them. Between the fast rate DD is growing, and her narrow heel, she is almost impossible to fit right now, so when I took the PERFECTLY fitting canvas shoes out of the washer (delicate cycle, cold water, in a mesh bag--same load as her tights), I was SO unhappy to find that they shrunk...and the leather bottoms seem to have curled (maybe because the canvas around them shrunk?). Anyway, we were back buying new shoes (canvas, again--leather just doesn't fit her right now, and we've tried many brands to find one that fits in the toe and doesn't bunch at the mid-sole and heel)... What is the correct way to clean them without a disaster? Thanks- Quote Link to comment
