Care and maintenance
NEVER DRY OUT BOOTS IN THE SUN, IN VERY HOT PLACES OR, EVEN WORSE, NEAR HEAT SOURCES.
TREATMENT OF FULL GRAIN LEATHER - CRISPI® Boots are made with the highest quality leathers, treatments and finishes. However, these materials and treatments can and will wear out. Proper cleaning and maintenance of these materials and finishes will extend the life your boots. CRISPI® does not recommend using oil based cleaners and conditioners that can negatively affect the waterproofing and breathability of your footwear. CRISPI® has formulated wax based treatments that are engineered to work with the type of leathers and finishes applied at our factory. CRISPI® treatment products are designed to work with all of our technologies and materials to maintain the suppleness, waterproofness and breathability of the leathers we have carefully chosen. These products are also designed to meet the standards set by the makers of GORE-TEX® fabrics. When the boots are cleaned and dried, a light layer of CRISPI® Wax Polish should be applied to the surface of the upper using a smooth cloth. Please note, these products could darken the colour of the leather. You shouldn’t worry about the white film that usually appears. It is easily cleaned with a damp cloth and is due to excessive wax build up.
TREATMENT OF FABRIC, NABUK AND SUEDE - We recommend the following special treatment for models made of Fabric, Nubuk and Suede with GORE-TEX® or Cambrelle® linings. In this case we suggest using special products, that guarantee the simultaneous waterproofing of leather and nylon. We recommend something specific like Imperwass that we tested and sell with the brand name CRISPI®. It is available from our distributors and in specialized shops. Oil and waterproof spray for leather, suede and cloth it does not stain neither changes the colour. These products, besides improving the waterproofing characteristics of the boot, don't affect at all the other technical features, such as the breathability of GORE-TEX®.
