It's always a good idea to impregnate shoes before you wear them for the first time. The impregnating material is absorbed into the footwear, making its surface resistant to the external environment, preserving the colour and prolonging the durability of the shoe. Not only moisture, but also the penetration of dirt is prevented.
To ensure water resistance, we highly recommend to impregnate the shoes properly and regularly with common impregnation agents. Before impregnation, remove dirt and dust from your shoes and let them dry completely. This footwear model is meant to be worn in mild rainfall and light snowfall. It is not fully waterproof, therefore not suitable for particularly wet rainy days.
We recommend cleaning with a soft brush or a damp cloth. Allow the shoes to dry sufficiently after wearing. Do not place near direct heat sources. Do not machine wash.
