Care Instructions

Cleaning: Prepare the footwear by removing surface dirt such as mud and grit. When cleaning Haglöfs footwear, it is important to use a soft sponge under clean lukewarm running water. Dry the footwear off with a clean cloth or rag at a natural temperature. Do not use the aid of an external heat source or direct sunlight. Direct heat may alter the shape of the shoe. Footwear should never be cleaned in a washing machine.

For best comfort and foot climate, also clean the inside of the footwear now and then using a soft brush and lukewarm water. Remove the footbed before washing. To speed up drying, fill each boot or shoe with newspaper and let the paper absorb the majority of the moisture before removing it to allow the footwear to finish drying. Regardless of whether you clean the inside or outside, make sure your footwear dries at room temperature, never with the aid of a heater or drying cabinet (excessive heat may for instance cause the leather to crack). Cleaned footwear is best stored at room temperature using a shoe tree. Never store dirty shoes.

Before first use, treat boots and shoes with waterproofing, including the laces and the entire tongue. Treat the cleaned surfaces of boots and shoes regularly with waterproofing intended for synthetic materials.

There are many different waxes and waterproofing agents on the market for different types of footwear and areas of use. Ask your retailer for advice and tips regarding the specific boots or shoes you have purchased.
Tip: Wear pure wool or wool/synthetic socks for the best foot climate. Socks in these materials help your boots and shoes to maintain a good climate for your feet as they wick away sweat much better than cotton. Damp can contribute to chafing, cold feet and in the worst case also athlete's foot.

Do not buy without reading this...

In most ways these shoes are close to perfect - supportive, comfortable, waterproof and the GTX Surround seems to stop them getting so hot. Unfortunately there is a MASSIVE design flaw. The outer mesh allows sand in easily but not out, so the outer layer of the shoe fills up, so much so that after 10 minutes dune walking, I had to go barefoot as they had become at least half-a-size smaller. Several days later and several hours holding them upside down and shaking them, they remain essentially unwearable. Close but no cigar...
