Sprinkle baking soda in your toms to absorb odors overnight. This may not be ideal for dark colored toms as it can create a mess. Fill your toms with a rolled up piece of newspaper to absorb odors. Wipe the insoles of your toms with rubbing alcohol on a cloth to kill spark-causing bacteria.
Yes, they are pretty smelly because they don’t wear socks. If you wear the toms all day, they start to smell. I would suggest putting baby powder in every shoe you wear before you put them on.
Canvas shoes are easy to wash. You can hand wash your shoes or run them through the washing machine. Just make sure you don’t put your canvas shoes in the dryer. When toms or other canvas shoes go through the dryer, the soles can become misshapen and soft, even if you use the lowest dryer setting.
Put simply, if wearing socks is more comfortable than not wearing them, you’re more likely to wear them. With that in mind, TOMS Crew Socks feature lightly cushioned arches and seamless toe closures. And our No Show socks have three lines of grippy silicone on the heel.
Yes, TOMS can get wet. That makes cleaning so easy! However, they are not waterproof, so we do not recommend wearing them on rainy days or at the beach. Water penetrates the material and gets your feet wet.
Mix together ¼ cup baking soda, ¼ cup baking soda, and ½ cup cornstarch. Put the mixture into a pair of cotton socks or sprinkle the mixture into both shoes and leave overnight . For an extra scent boost, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil.
First, according to Cornell studies – first question: how would you describe the smell of your feet in toms versus flats? You MUST wear “No Show” socks… it’s the material inside the shoe that makes it stink when worn barefoot AND feet sweating ridiculous.
The insoles of real TOMS shoes, no matter what model, are sewn into the sole and not glued in! What is that? They don’t slip off and definitely cannot be removed.
TOMS advises that the best way to wash your shoes without damaging them is to hand wash them. Soak in cool/cold water with a gentle detergent and remove any dirt or stains with your hands or a soft brush/sponge. Do not put them in your dryer to dry as this may cause them to shrink or tear.
Your TOMS® shoes will most likely stretch over time. They should fit snugly out of the box, with your toes touching the end. After a few hours of wear, they will likely stretch a little to conform to your feet.
Use a blow dryer on the shoes while wearing socks.
While wearing thick socks, put on your shoes and hold a blow dryer on them for 20-30 seconds. Keep the hair dryer a few inches from your feet to avoid burning yourself. Try on the shoes without the thick socks to test their fit. They should be looser.
About a year or so if you wear them all the time. They are very comfortable. However, they don’t last very long. If you get them wet, they’ll start smelling kind of funny once they’re dry.
TOMS is a solid, affordable option if you’re looking for a comfortable, closed-toe shoe (not a sneaker) that you can wear with everything. Their V-shaped canvas exterior is easy to put on and take off and won’t irritate your feet when you move. Each pair features latex arch support and a durable yet flexible outsole.
TOMS run true to size and are only available in medium width. We recommend ordering the size you usually wear. If you’re usually between sizes, we recommend sizing down as TOMS stretches slightly when it breaks in.
Counterfeit TOMS shoes must not have the TOMS slogan anywhere on the shoes or on the shoe box. Make sure there is a pattern on the inside walls of the shoes. The inner fabric of TOMS shoes contains a pattern like stripes or animals. If there is no pattern inside the shoes, they may be counterfeit TOMS shoes.
To wash your Toms shoes, put them in the washing machine and add 1/4 cup mild detergent. Run the machine on the gentle cycle and leave the shoes on air dry. If your shoes are just dusty, you can dust them with a soft and dry bristle brush.
