How do I know my correct shoe size or width?

Whenever possible, we recommend you visit your local walking or running footwear store for a proper fitting. For the most accurate measurement visit a store that has an iStep scanner for a free digital scan of your feet. For a list of retailers with an iStep scanner click here and follow the on screen directions.

Can I wear Aetrex shoes with orthotics?

All Aetrex shoes - except the cork footwear, everyday sandals and wedges - have at least one removable insole. Aetrex shoes have a minimum of 3/16” removable depth with many Aetrex shoes having as much as 5/16” to 1/2" removable depth which allow for flexibility of fit. A wide variety of orthotics can be used with Aetrex footwear. Aetrex offers many prefab orthotics such as our Lynco line which can be found here.

How do I clean my footwear?

Athletic shoes can be cleaned by hand-washing them with a damp cloth and mild detergent. For best results, clean your shoes immediately after exposure to mud or dirt. Allow shoes to air-dry at room temperature. It is important that you do not machine-wash or machine-dry your sneakers.

For leather shoes, wipe shoes clean with a dry cloth. Apply a shoe cream to leather using circular strokes.

For nubuck or suede, brush gently with a soft suede brush to remove stains or marks. For stubborn stains use a suede eraser first, then brush gently with a suede brush.
