good support for unusually high arches

The Asics GEL-Nimbus 12 is a trainer running shoe focused cushioning and stability. It uses a vertical flex groove Guidance Line to increase the efficiency of the shoe. The lacing pattern is asymmetrical to better follow the shape of the foot, and the eyelet design disburses the tension of the laces across the upper for comfort. The shoe is designed according to the ASICS Impact Guidance System to offer a supportive fit, and the Biomorphic Fit Upper is made of flexible materials that adapt to the shape of the foot. A Space Trusstic System is used to create a pocket in the midsole to control the deformation of the shoe throughout the run cycle.

I'm very impressed by the shoe and really have only one concern. How do I keep it clean if I can't wash it?
