Wet footwear should be allowed to dry naturally in a cool, dry area and not be force dried as this can causes deterioration of the upper material.
Always wear safety shoes with socks.
Change your socks daily.
Keep the laces tied for a snug and comfortable fit. Do not wear or take off shoes with tied up laces.
Wear the shoe properly by putting the full foot inside the shoe and resting the heel on the sole.
To ensure the best service and wear from footwear, it is important that the footwear is regularly cleaned. Do not use any caustic cleaning agents.
Barton, CG, CS, Oil Pull Up Leather: Remove dirt and stains with a damp cloth before applying a good wax polish to keep the leather supple and improve water resistance.
Suede, Nubuck, Crazy Horse Leather: As with grain leathers, clean with a damp cloth but ensure that the footwear does not become saturated. When dry, gently rub with a suede / nubuck cleaning block or a suede brush to restore the finish.
Sole: A blunt knife or a stiff bristled brush can be used to clean the sole.
If the footwear becomes damaged, it will NOT provide the optimum level of protection and therefore should be immediately replaced. NEVER USE DAMAGED FOOTWEAR.
If the footwear is taken care of and worn in the correct working environment and stored in dry ventilated conditions, it should give a good life, without premature failure.
