All models (with the model All Weather Boot):
All Boots & Woods boots are made of 100% leather. Leather is porous so it can breathe, it is water-repellent but not waterproof. If your boots are often exposed to moisture, it is therefore advisable to occasionally treat your boots with thin layers of natural wax. As a result, they do not only look neat and look shiny, it also protects them against water and scratches. For boots in light colors, the use of wax should be kept to a minimum to prevent stains.
Boots of naturally tanned leather (including Escala and Polo Bronce) may only be treated with natural wax.
For suede boots, a water and dirt repellent spray may be used. These boots can be further maintained with a suede / nubuck brush.
Boots of patent leather can be maintained with Woly Lac Mousse and Lac Patent; patent leather stays nicely supple, is fed and goes beautiful shine again. Small scratches and cracks can also be removed here.
If your boots are wet, never dry them in front of the stove or any other heat source, but allow them to dry gradually at room temperature.
We recommend using boot clamps for storing your boots.
Model All Weather Boat
The Boots & Woods All Weather Boot is made from the highest quality calfskin and fully lined with a Sympatex © synthetic fiber membrane (see for more information below), which makes the boots waterproof. For the best functionality of the Sympatex © lining, it is important that the boots continue to breathe. If your boots are often exposed to damp conditions, you can use a water repellent spray that does not affect the breathability of the leather. This is indicated on the bus with a HIGH-TEX © or GORE-TEX © label. A good choice is Collonil Nanopro. It is also important that the boots are not too much smeared with wax / grease or shoe polish. We recommend using a neutral wax and applying it occasionally in thin layers.
Sympatex © is a breathable synthetic fiber (www.sympatex.com) produced in Germany that is used in, among other things, high-quality Outdoor & Footwear applications to make these water and windproof. The plastic Sympatex membrane is attached in a separate process directly behind the leather of the All Weather Boot, which guarantees the boot is watertight. Because Sympatex © has no pores, the respiratory activity of the fiber is not affected by dirt or by salt crystals.
