Performance boots aftercare

Keep your boots looking their best.

Aftercare tips: 

We know you will love your boots and want to wear them all the time, but try to allow a day between wears for the boots to dry out and breathe. 

Let the boots air dry thoroughly - away from heat. Avoid the temptation to put them on a radiator as this will weaken the adhesive bonds at the sole. 

Keeping your boots clean will extend their life, helping them look and feel good for longer. Follow our cleaning guide below. 

Shoe trees can help maintain the shape of the boot in between wears. 

We recommend re-applying a water repellent spray at regular intervals. This will help to maintain the performance of the boots. Always test on a small area first in case the spray darkens the colour of the upper, and follow the instructions on the packaging.

How to clean your boots: 

1. Let the boots air dry thoroughly - away from heat. Avoid the temptation to put them on a radiator as this will weaken the adhesive bonds at the sole. 

2. Remove the laces (if the boots have them), and use a damp cloth to remove excess dirt from the upper and outsole. 

3. Lightly brush the boot with a shoe-care brush to remove any dried dirt from the stitching. 

4. We recommend re-applying a water repellent spray at regular intervals. This will help to maintain the performance of the boots. Always test on a small area first in case the spray darkens the colour of the upper, and follow the instructions on the packaging. 

5. On leather boots, you may wish to apply a polish or conditioner to maintain the look and feel of the leather. Try to select a polish which matches the leather colour as closely as possible, and remember that dark polishes will also darken any stitching.
