How to clean, maintain and reproof your Grisport Boots

3rd Feb 2016

Your Grisport walking boots could be soaking up water just because they are dirty! Dirt attracts water and reduces the performance of the leather and fabric. Therefore a little maintenance goes a long way.

Leather boots and shoes really are an investment and so proper care is needed to ensure you get many years of use and enjoyment.

General points to follow when looking after your walking boots and shoes:

  • Try to clean the footwear after each wear
  • Allow the footwear to dry naturally, away from a heat source such as a radiator or open fire
  • Store away from direct sources of light
  • Stuff with newspaper to draw out any moisture
  • Allow to dry naturally before applying any treatment
  • Remove the laces to allow the footwear to dry fully

The first step is to identify the type of fabric/material on your boots and/or shoes and then follow our step by step guide below:

Fabric/materials used in Grisport walking boots and shoes

grisport everest boot1. Full grain leather e.g. Grisport Everest boots, Grisport Exmoor shoe

Top quality Italian leather is used on many of Grisport boots. This material is found to be the toughest of materials and needs some maintenance to prevent any moisture or changes in temperatures from spoiling the leather.

2. So, Suede or Nubuck? e.g. Grisport Glencoe Boots or Grisport Java shoegrisport magma-lo walking shoe

Nubuck is a velvet-like finish that utilises a finer grain of leather. Unlike ordinary full grain leather, a nubuck finish is a duller finish.

Suede however, is soft, flexible and absorbent and is the inner side of a hide,so therefore needs some care to prevent water from penetrating it.

Please always follow the guidance, as recommended by the manufacturer, in order to avoid any potential damage to the material or any changes to the appearance.
