How to Care for your Dublin Footwear

Some helpful hints on getting the most from your Dublin Footwear

Leather is a natural product that requires care. To ensure your new purchase provides you with optimum performance please see the following helpful information:

  • We recommend that all boots are wiped clean with a damp cloth after each use; especially after wearing in muddy or dusty environments or in contact with manure/waste liquids which can be corrosive to leather.
  • Should your Dublin's become saturated, please remove the insoles and fill with paper to retain their shape. Please dry them away from direct heat and then dry naturally to prevent the leather cracking.
  • Use a beeswax or leather conditioner to keep the leather in best condition. These can both nourish the leather and keep them looking great.
  • Do not apply polish or leather conditioner to suede / nubuck / distressed leather as this can alter the look of the leather.

 

Did you know?

Some styles of Dublin Footwear are waterproofed.

  • There is a waterproof membrane in the boots and all seams are sealed and taped with a waterproof sealer.
  • If the boots are worn in excessively wet conditions it can allow moisture into the boots if they are not dried correctly.
  • To dry your boots out correctly please place away from direct heat, remove the inner soles and fill with paper to retain the shape.  Allow the boots to dry naturally to prevent the leather from cracking.

 

Patent Leather Care

  • Patent leather has an extremely glossy finish and is perfect for competition or special occasion riding
  • Avoid excess water as this can result in damage to your patent leather products 
  • You should clean patent leather products after each use with a soft damp cloth
  • Try to avoid resting patent leather accessories against one another or any dark colours as this can leave marks. 
  • To avoid marks it is suggested you store your patent leather products in their original packaging wrapped in paper or a soft bag to avoid colour transfer
  • If a scuff mark occurs use an acetone nail polish remover and carefully buff away marks, then gently wipe of the excess acetone and wait until you boots are dry, then buff the entire surface with a cloth to give your boots a clean shiny look
