the only thing likely to cause distortion of plastic i think is high heat.

a 60 degree wash might bother them a bit, but i doubt simply wearing them will fail to fix em.

if in doubt do a cold or a 30 deg wash.... but rinse the buggers out twice over or they might end up honking worse than ever!

having said all of the above...i am a mucky bugger! so what the hell would i know?!

Shocking. I was under the impression boots were made to act as a deterrent to people trying to get into your dorm room and rob stuff with their smell.

Haha, the stinky hoof conversation is great. You could just keep your stash in your boots and they'll always smell like ganj
