BOOT CARE

Look after your Mongrels and they’ll look after you

We’ve provided the top-quality material. Now, it’s up to you to look after your Mongrels. After all, good things last if you take care of them.  If you’re not sure how to maintain your boots, don’t fret. We’ve put together some tips and tricks so you get the most out of your boots. 

LEATHER

STEP 1

Remove dirt and grime from the leather upper with a damp cloth or soft brush, and leave the boots to dry at room temperature.

STEP 2

Apply Mongrel Boots Leather Wax or boot polish to the leather liberally in a circular motion.

Buff or wipe any excess residue from the wax or polish, and again leave the boots to dry at room temperature away from sunlight or artificial heat.

STEP 3

Repeat the above regularly or as needed to ensure the leather remains soft and nourished.

SUEDE & NUBUCK

STEP 1

Using a suede or nubuck brush, gently brush the leather in order to remove any dirt; grime or light stains. This will also help to maintain the nap.

STEP 2

Using a gum eraser, remove any stubborn scuff marks by rubbing the affected area.

Apply suede or nubuck cleaner to any area of the boot that has deep stains that you wish to remove, and allow to dry.

STEP 3

Once clean, apply Mongrel suede and nubuck protector to the boots as per the instructions on the bottle and allow to dry thoroughly.

We always recommend applying Mongrel suede and nubuck protector to your boots when new, as well as regularly throughout their lifespan.

OTHER TIPS

  • Store your boots in a dry, and well-ventilated area away from sunlight
  • Boot soles should be cleaned of any dirt or manure etc. regularly with water
  • If your boots get wet, dry them at normal room temperature away from sunlight and any artificial heat sources such as fires and heaters (as this will dry the leather out and may cause it to crack or shrink)
  • Allow the leather to dry naturally before treating
  • Condition your boots using the above steps before use when they are new
  • Avoid storing your boots in humid conditions
  • When coming into contact with any chemicals or other liquids, always clean and condition the boots immediately
  • We recommend regularly following the above boot care tips to keep the leather soft and nourished
