After each use, the shoes need to be cleaned of mud and dirt with a damp cloth and, if necessary, washed with a mild soap using a soft brush. For an optimal drying process, it is advisable to fully open the shoes, remove the insole and leave the shoes in a cool and wall-aired place. The removal of the insole allows a better drying process and the removal of possible gravel that may have got inside the boot that could damage the waterproof eVent membrane, if present.
The treatment with the proper products is long lasting, but not permanent: reapply the products when necessary or after each use in severe conditions. Please note that the use of these products can cause a slight darkening of the colour of the leather
