Can you wash SMB sports boots?

I've been using the SMB sports boots for a while now and I always brush them out, but they are getting very stiff.
Has anyone ever put them in the washing machine or is it better to hand wash them?

Yes you absolutely can :)

You can either leave them open - but fold the velcro over and attach it to the side of the boot they are sewn on. Hand wash this way.

If you put them in the washer, make sure you do them up as though you were putting them on your horse. Velcro secure.

I sure hope so because I've been doing it for years.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I usually wash mine when I wash the horse, with a bit of soap and lots of water from the hose!

My mom always washed hers in the washing machine, though!

I was just wondering this question about a week ago, so I checked their website and it said not to wash them in the washing machine because it will void the warranty on them, but meh, it's not like I am going to send them back in or anything. I haven't washed mine yet though.

He'll love his clean boots!
