Outdoor Footwear. They are made to get dirty, keeping your feet dry, comfortable and clean no matter how wet, challenging and grimy your adventure may be. But, unless they are properly cared for, boots and shoes may not last the distance you would hope. That’s why our expert team wanted to share with you their (literal) step-by-step guide to washing and caring for your outdoor footwear properly. Enjoy!
For our example, we will use a “typical” outdoor boot that has two removable parts: the laces and the insole. To start with the cleaning, remove the laces and the insole from the main body of the shoe. These smaller parts can be thrown into a washing machine at 30° (wash cold 65-85F). We recommend tying the two ends of the laces together to form a single loop, as they can sometimes snake and get lost into the sides of washing machines. To dry, simply hang them on the line as you would any other piece of clothing – all easy so far.
Washing boots is a manual process. The main thing you need is a shoe brush and warm water. Dipping the brush in the water, scrub off the dirt and grime you can see with your eye. We recommend every so often clapping the boots together so that any caked-on debris that may be hidden also is dislodged - think how soccer players clean their boots after a game. Then clean the boots using running water. Don’t forget to clean the soles the same way.
When the outside of the boot is clean, turn your attention inside the same way. Use the warm water to dislodge any dirt buildups and tap the shoe upside down to get them out. Cleaning in this way does not damage the lining of the shoe as many people believe but is the best way to make sure no build ups are happening that could, over time, wear through the shoe from the inside out. In the case of strong odor and extreme soiling, we recommend Nikwax's environmentally friendly water-based cleaning treatments.
Attention: Never use liquid detergents or fabric softeners. Wash the waterproof footwear in Nikwax non-detergent soap. Detergents can leave water-attractive residues that will not rinse out. If the boots are fairly new, or recently re-waterproofed with Nikwax Water-based waterproofing treatments, the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) will be revitalised just from cleaning. Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel will also remove contaminants, such as dirt and residues left behind by household detergents. Once footwear have been thoroughly used, you will need to add DWR using Nikwax waterproofers.
As far as cleaning goes, that’s it! Likely your boots are now looking fantastic, however will be wet (especially on the inside). The best way to dry outdoor footwear is to stuff them with newspaper and leave them in the laundry room or similar space to dry upside down (with the opening face down) replacing the newspaper after a few hours to speed up the process. (In addition: when storing shoes after use, newspaper helps to prevent the formation of mold.)
Attention: Don’t speed up drying outdoor footwear by putting them on radiators or in the sun for example! Wait for them to dry themselves. Leather boots may become brittle and cracks could start to appear. Other materials are reactivated by high temperatures: this could result in detachment of part of the upper and painful deformations.
Always apply waterproofing treatments to outdoor footwear and follow the instructions shown on the product. We recommend Nikwax's environmentally friendly water-based waterproofing treatments, bearing in mind: The best time to apply a waterproofing treatment is a few hours after washing shoes, before they are completely dry. This is because with many boot materials, the pores are still open and so better to penetrate with the waterproofing. Leave the boots to dry for 24 hours.
Note: You don't need to re-waterproof every time you clean your footwear. Regular cleaning will enhance the performance of your footwear by removing water attracting (hydrophilic) dirt and other contaminants picked up when out and about. Cleaning using Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel will revitalise the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) of your footwear, causing water to bead on the outer surface. When Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel alone does not revitalise the DWR of your footwear it’s time to re-waterproof using the appropriate Nikwax footwear waterproofer.
An optional step but one we highly recommend is waxing of outdoor footwear made of leather. Always read the instructions before using the product. Use a sponge or cloth and apply liberally (including tongues). More frequent waterproofing is required for GORE-TEX® shoes and all models with textile edgings. In addition: some wax might change the color and texture of shoes, making them darker and shiny. However, this is an advantage for the shoe. You can roughen velours or suede again using light sandpaper.
Once done, retie laces, insert the insole and revel in your now thoroughly cleaned and adventure-ready outdoor boots.

My wife and I both have previous model of this boot and have been extremely happy with them. Classic last allows our custom orthotics to sit perfectly. This updated model fitted great out of the box and we can trust Mammut not to change fit from year to year. Thanks Jackson Sports for easy shipping to Australia.
Only a boot, which really fits, makes you happy.
Please remember that, for technical reasons, there can be slight differences in the size of different types of boots / shoes.
