  • “At the end of a day’s work, the removable footbeds should be pulled half out of the boots to help make sure that they dry out and air properly overnight. If you don’t do this you risk the boots becoming smelly and create ideal conditions for bacteria to thrive in.”

    “If you get your boots really muddy, brush the worst off then wipe them down with warm water and let them dry naturally. Don’t put them on top of the boiler or in the airing cupboard as this will increase the tendency to crack the leather.”

    “Once a month, take out the replaceable insoles and stick them through the washing machine for a freshen up.”

    “When leather gets wet repeatedly, the natural oils eventually get washed out and if they are not replaced the leather will crack. You should periodically treat your boots to a dose of Chelsea Leather Food. This will feed and rejuvenate the leather and maintain its water resistant qualities.”

    “It’s worth investing in good quality socks made of cotton or other natural material. Besides being another layer of cushioning and insulation, socks play the vital role of wicking moisture away from the foot.”
