1.Remove dirt from your shoes
Hiking shoes need to be treated properly to keep them looking nice. Usually you start at the beginning ... but this time we'll start at the destination. Once you have finished your hike, it is important to remove dirt from the hiking shoes. First, remove the sand and mud with a brush and don't forget to remove the dirt from your sole. You can clean the shoes with a brush, sponge or cloth.
2.A dry and ventilated room.
Do you use lukewarm water? Then let the hiking shoes dry well in a ventilated area (room temperature is fine). By the way, not against the heater, because of the materials we have incorporated into the shoes. Fortunately, taking care of your hiking boots doesn't take long, nor is it a complicated job. But you have to do it for a while, so you can enjoy wearing the shoes again next time. Nothing is more annoying than having to wear dirty shoes during a wonderful hike. Did your shoes get very wet during the hike? In our Hiking collection you will find models with optimal wearing comfort, solid grip and of course the advanced Dry-X waterproof technology that keeps your feet dry. Letting your hiking boots breathe well after your hike is always a must and we recommend storing your shoes in a dry place.
3.Get all your grooming supplies ready in advance.
Even if you are tired after the hike, take care of your shoes with attention. Have the care materials ready before you go out. That way you will fly through the cleaning ritual after the hike and then you can recover from the trip.
Why should you maintain hiking boots?
Treating hiking boots properly will preserve their features longer. A good cleaning will keep the shoes breathing well and keep the material extra fresh. Functional looks, maximum comfort and a firm grip; hiking shoes are perfect for all outdoor activities and you can make wonderful trips and hikes on them.
