Caring For Your Work Boots


by Oliver Footwear

At Oliver, we believe that the proof is in the boot, but we also think that looking after your work boots to maximise comfort and durability should be a part of any care and maintenance routine.  At the end of the day, these are boots you’ll wear all day, providing you with comfort for work and play!

To clean your boots, remove any debris with a brush or wipe clean after use with a damp cloth. Ensure you allow wet boots to dry naturally at room temperature as artificial drying can cause leather to shrink, harden and crack. Soles should be cleaned by brushing and/or washing to remove any dirt.

Full grain leather uppers should be polished or treated with leather preservative like Dubbin. Suede and nubuck leathers can be treated before wear with a waterproofing product such as KIWI Suede & Nubuck Protector. This creates an invisible shield that helps prevent water and dirt from penetrating suede and nubuck footwear while still allowing them to breathe.

Should your suede or nubuck begin to look flattened, scrub it with a clean toothbrush or towel. If it’s in really bad shape, hold your shoe above steam for a few seconds, and then brush it. Whatever you do, don’t clean suede or nubuck with water. This might seem strange, but don’t try to clean suede or nubuck with water alone. It can affect both the colour and the texture.

OTHER TIPS FOR LOOKING AFTER YOUR WORKBOOTS

• Store boots in cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

• Regularly check boots for any deterioration to the leather, laces or sole and treat or replace as required.

• Check stitching and seams for breaks, separation and splitting.

• Check laces for deterioration, fraying and breakages, replace as required.
