Boot care

Unlike certain other splendid products, Lundhags boots don’t win in being repaired, they are to be used. If you take care of your boots properly, they can last for decades.

Unlike certain other great products, Lundhags boots don’t win in being repaired, they are to be used. If you take care of your boots properly, they can last for decades.

Properly proof the boots the first three or four times you use them. After a while, you will see where you need to proof the boots to get maximum protection against wet conditions.

Use the boots as often and as much as possible, preferably at least twice per month. They will then retain their shape to your feet.

Always use two pairs of wool socks, one thinner closest to the foot (a liner) and one heavier depending on the temperature.

Clean the boots with mild water and a scrubbing brush. This works even on the inside to wash out salt and dirt from the leather.

Avoid drying the boots in a drying cupboard. They withstand drying of max 40°.

Remove the insoles and place them in the shaft after each use.

Ensure that your boots are well impregnated if you plan to not use for a while. The cellular rubber, however, should not be proofed. Lundhags Leather Grease is a perfect companion to your polished boots. For boots in nubuck, you will want to use Leather Wax from Toko, which retains the polished, suede-like surface, for the best protection against water. But you then lose the special appearance of nubuck and the nubuck can darken somewhat.

Store the boots in a cool place between hikes.

Do the shafts of the boots feel too hard? By leaving the last three pairs of holes in the shaft unlaced, you will soften up the shaft naturally during first hikes.
