Boot Care Guidelines

Leather Care Instructions

Do’s

  • Remove large chunks of soil using warm water and a soft brush or cloth.
  • Fill the boots with newspaper to dry when damp and place the boots in a dry place. This will draw moisture out of the leather.
  • Apply dubbin to the leather prior to first use. This helps to waterproof the boots and keep the leather supple.
  • When storing the boots, use a boot tree. This will help the boots to maintain their original shape.

Note: given the nature of leather, a small gap may develop between the outsole and upper over the course of use. This is normal and will not compromise the performance characteristics of the boot.

 

Don’ts

  • Do not put the boots in the washing machine.
  • Do not put the boots in a bag after washing.
  • Do not expose the boots to direct sunlight or leave near a heat source, such as radiator or oven after washing. The leather must dry consistently from the inside to the outside. If this does not occur the leather may crack which reduces the lifespan of the boots.
  • Leather is a natural material. This means top surface abrasion can happen and small cracks can occur after several hours of usage. This is normal and will not compromise the performance characteristics of the leather.

 

Synthetic/Textile Care Instruction

Do’s

  • Wash the upper in cold water and air dry.
  • Fill the boots with newspaper to dry when damp and place the boots in a dry place. This will draw moisture out of the material.

Don’ts

  • Do not expose the boots to direct sunlight or leave near a heat source, such as radiator or oven after washing.
  • Do not use solvent based care products such as leather creams as they will damage the surface of the boot.
