Our Vintage Handmade boots are made of high-quality leather that has been specially treated. As a result, it is water repellent, it dries quickly and remains soft and supple. Because leather is a natural product, it needs maintenance. Therefore, treat the leather regularly with our Vintage gel. This way, you prevent drying out of the leather and you keep the leather beautiful and supple. You can order the special Vintage Handmade cleaning kit in this regard.
The membrane that makes the boots waterproof is located directly behind the leather and has billions of microporous pores. To enhance the boot’s water repellent feature, you can use Vintage Handmade care products. The leather can thus not get saturated with water and impede the breathability.
If your boots have become dirty due to mud or dirt, you can remove this first layer of dirt with a cloth or brush. You then apply the leather cleaner with a sponge or cloth with a rotating motion. After the dirt has disappeared, briefly rub the boots with a clean cloth. After that, it is best to let them dry for 48 hours and then treat them with Leather gel for an optimal protection.
After contact with acids from manure, with salt water and/or snow, it is best to clean the boots and soles with a generously moistened sponge. Contact with brine, manure and sea water can cause leakage.
Have the boots become wet, for example, due to cleaning? Then first, remove the insoles and allow the boots to air dry naturally for a minimum of 48 hours before continuing the treatment. Never use a forced heat source for this; our boots do not like that. In order to preserve the shape, you can use a spanner and newspapers.
