Are you still looking for appropriate hiking boots? Then read my previous blog post, in which I give tips for buying hiking boots.

Clean the outside of the shoes

You have wandered just a piece and enjoy a cup of coffee or hot cocoa? Logically, of course, but if you are reasonable, clean your walking shoes, if they have become dirty, immediately. Remove the insole, first draw out the tongue and, if your shoes are quite dirty, remove also the laces. ‘Loser’ dirt removed best with a brush. The dirt on the shoe from sticking, for example in the case of mud or clay, then remove the Foulness of pouring water and a brush. That is what you do best with lukewarm water. Let not with hot water ‘scare your shoes anyway’, because really don’t appreciate that. Be also careful with zerbrechlicheren parts, such as stitches and lace hooks.

Clean the inside of the walking shoes

Have your walking shoes with a leather interior lining, then clean them with a sponge or a soft brush. You can also use a natural soap or green SOAP. How true also for the cleaning of the outside of the shoes for the inside: never rinse with hot water!

Many of today’s hiking boots are with a lining of Gore-equipped Tex® also for making sleeping bags. This material is waterproof your shoes and it also ensures that your shoe can breathe. If you feel that your feet faster, wet feel, then it could be that the Gore-Tex® membrane is clogged by salt, that escapes through perspiration. Then soak the cleaning the membrane, thus that you fill your boots with lukewarm water or lukewarm water. Already sure that you previously remove the insoles and laces of Poker.

Heat that dries out the leather and can rip this. Heat can also attack the glue. The best you can dry your shoes at room temperature, preferably with paper towels or toilet paper in the shoes. The paper should be replaced regularly. Make also sure that the room in which to dry the shoes is also dry and well ventilated.

Protect your shoes in the right way

Inform in advance which care for your shoes is right. It really makes a difference if your shoes are made of leather or nubuck or Gore-Tex® contains, for each material requires different care. Wondering how to best maintain it when buying the shoes. Read always the instructions of your care.

Leather shoes are impregnated in the production, but you need to regularly review the impregnation. If you have cleaned your shoes with water, we anyway recommend to impregnate her again with a spray or a cream (silicone or beeswax). But even if the leather feels dry or rough you treat your shoes again. If you spray, the spray can hold approximately 30 cm from the shoe. Think also of the shoelaces and the sole edge and don’t forget the tongue of the shoe and the space between the lace hook. Waterproofing spray works best 24 hours after use. Thinly apply cream on your dry shoes and then you rub the cream. Are your shoes made of nubuck, you must use a spray for Nubuk. For the daily care you rub gently with a brush over the surface, so as not damage the nubuck. After each treatment, the nubuck is something smoother and darker. You don’t like this you then roughen the leather with a nubuck brush again.
