Easy Spirit is a brand of shoes for women in dress and casual styles that are meant to be supportive and comfortable to wear. Owned by the Jones Apparel Group, Easy Spirit shoes are designed to fit a variety of sizes and widths and are made out of different materials, including canvas, rubber and leather. Grasshopper Shoes are another women’s shoe brand designed with comfort as a priority and offer sandals, sneakers and casual shoes in a variety of sizes and styles. Cleaning both EasySpirit and/or Grasshopper shoes takes a few steps.

Canvas and Rubber Shoes

Brush away as much dirt and debris from the shoes as possible using a soft-bristled brush.

Mix together 2 teaspoons of dishwashing liquid and 2 cups of warm water. Dip a clean cloth into the cleaning mixture and apply to shoe.

Rub the cloth in circular motions over the shoes, scrubbing lightly as needed to remove any dirt or stains.

Dip a clean cloth into clean warm water and apply to shoe. Rub in circular motions over the shoe.

Let shoes air dry or set on a dryer rack inside the clothes dryer on a low heat until dry.

Leather Shoes

Brush away any dirt or debris using a soft-bristled brush.

Apply a small amount of leather cleaner to a soft, dry cloth and gently rub in circular motions on the shoes. Rub gently to remove any scuffs or stains. Leather cleaner can be purchased at most grocery stores, drug stores or hardware stores.

Mix together 1 cup water and 1 cup vinegar. Dip a soft, clean cloth into the mixture and rub on any stains on the shoes. Do not oversaturate the shoe, as leather is very absorbent and will stain easily.

Use a clean, soft cloth to gently buff the shoes.

Apply a leather conditioner to shoes every few months to maintain the quality of the leather.
