How Do I Care for my Gumboots?

Natural rubber like leather requires particular care and wears depending upon the use of the item. Some people wear them while they are gardening and may use weed sprays which can damage the rubber or PU. 

Similarly in the work environment there can be substances which can dramatically reduce the life cycle of a boot and some people lets face it wear them Rough! This is all deemed general wear and tear and while we all would love boots that last for ever but its just not going to be the case but  you can prolong the life of your boots if you follow these guidelines for care.


  • Use a shoe horn or lift your toes up heel down and pull off. If you do not have a heel peg at the back of the boot
  • Do not use your other foot to push the boot off as this may cause the heel to split from the boot in the case of a two piece weld.


  • Rinse boots after use using a mild non-solvent based detergent.
  • Do not use any type of solvent as this will cause Rubber or PU to perish.
  • Treat rubber boots regularly with a silicon rubber conditioner which we sell in our store.


  • Store your rubber boots cool environment inside or undercover out of sunlight.
  • Avoid trying to dry your boots near sources of heat as the rubber will deteriorate or buckle.
  • Prolonged exposure to direct sun light makes rubber become dry, brittle & it will start cracking as the rubber perishes.
  • Do not leave your rubber gumboots outside for a prolonged period of time.
