BOOT CARE

1. Brush away any dirt, sand and grit from seams and around the outsole with a soft brush or damp cloth (pic 1). Never use strong chemicals, since they may damage the leather permanently (pic2).

2. If the leather is wet or damp, let the shoe / boot dry at room temperature before it is used again. Never use a hairdryer or radiators etc; this may cause dehydration and possible cracking of the leather (pic 3). Instead place crumpled newspaper or similar into the foot part and up the entire shaft (pic 4). Use wax or leather dressing regularly to protect and condition the leather thus preserving the flexibility and softness of the leather.

3. • The use of boot trees is strongly recommended for all long boots with zips (pic5). Boot trees help to maintain the shape and upright position of the shaft and help to protect the life of the zip. Make sure the boots are dry before the boot trees are used.

ZIP CARE

1.• Always open the zip all the way down to the bottom before putting on or taking off the boots. • Make sure the zip opens and close easily. Never force the zip.

2.• Keep the zip clean from sand, mud and grit. An effective way to clean your zip and the teeth of the zip is with the use of an ordinary brush or tooth brush.

3.• The use of boot trees is strongly recommended for all long boots featuring zips (pic5). Boot trees help to maintain the shape of the boot by keeping the shaft upright and thus preventing damage to the zip. Make sure the boots are dry before the boot trees are used.
