Care instructions

how to care for your miret sneakers

To maintain the beautiful colour and appearance, we recommend gentle vacuuming with a soft nozzle. Pure wool is antistatic and does not attract dirt like other fabrics. The fabric is water repellent, so spillages are slow to penetrate the fabric.
For all the dust and mud stains, leave the stains to dry and vacuum clean them. After vacuuming, use your clean shoe (or tooth) brush.
For stains always soak up the liquid with a white kitchen towel as soon as possible. If the stain has dried on, remove as much of it as possible by vacuuming. Most stains and dirt can be removed using an ordinary pH-neutral detergent diluted in lukewarm water at normal strength.
Over time white dust will appear on the surface of the rubber outsoles. This is a natural process of curing of rubber and you can remove this dust with warm water, ordinary detergent and a soft brush.

water repellence

All MIRET sneakers come protected with a water-repellent coating which is completely natural, perfectly safe for the environment, human health and any type of material. We recommend to re-apply the “MIRET Eco-dry spray” every 6 months in order to preserve the water and stain repellency of the fabric.
IMPORTANT: do not use water-repellent sprays other than the original MIRET Eco-dry spray. Other sprays can contain solvents or other aggressive and toxic chemicals. These chemicals are not only bad for the environment but they can damage the natural water-repellency of wool.
