Boot Care Advice

So...

You have gone to the trouble and effort of picking the right pair of boots for your requirements. You have now broken them in and they are extremely comfortable and suit your needs perfectly. 

With just a few simple steps (no pun intended), you can help to preserve your favourite pair of boots and greatly extend their lifespan. Follow these simple guidelines to maximise the longevity of your footwear.

We recommend the use of Redback Boot Wax- it has been specifically developed for the type of water repellent leathers we use (NB not suitable for the nubuck UBCH boots). 

We recommend that you rub in the Redback Boot Wax when the leather is dry and warmed up a little. Use a cloth  to work the wax and oils into the leather and then leave to dry a little and brush vigorously to drive it into and below the leather surface.

Please bear these points in mind:

1) Never dry your boots using an artificial heat source (radiator, oven, fire etc.).

2) Make the drying out procedure take as long as possible.

3) Never force dry your boots.

4) Never store boots wet.

5) Never store boots that have not been waxed or treated first.

Drying boots out rapidly can lead to shrinkage.  Particularly in hot climes, cover the boots with a lightly dampened cloth to slow the rate of evaporation. Ensuring the leather is clean and treated regularly can in fact double or triple the lifespan of a pair of Redbacks so is well worth doing.
