Wash Nike Free's in Washing Machine?

Anybody ever tried washing their Nike Free's? How did it turn out? They are great to wear without socks but they get nasty a little bit quicker...

I wouldn't wash them, just dunk in some highly diluted cleanser, then set them out in the TX heat til they are bone dry.

Wash them in Woolite in cold water. Let them soak.

If you choose the washing machine, do a gentle cycle!!!

I've washed mine in the washing machine numerous times - no problem.
Cold water. Bleachless detergent.

Put them in a laundry bad and as longs as you have a front loader they come out as good as new! In the past when Ive put shoes through a top loader the arm bends the shoes and after a few washes the are not as new as they should be.

Washing is fine.

DON'T DRY THEM! (in the dryer that is)
