Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: What if some dirty thing in the form of liquid makes your shoe dirty, can we clean it by rubbing it on the ground?


A: Yes, provided the filth has disappeared. If the wetness of the filth still remains then the shoe will not be considered as paak.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
