Treat high-quality leather
The Vintage Handmade boots are made of high-quality leather that has been specially treated. This makes it water-repellent, dries quickly and remains soft and supple. Leather maintenance is important to properly protect the leather of the boot against weather influences. Leather can dry out and hence maintenance is very important. Therefore, treat the leather regularly with our Vintage gel.
The membrane that makes the boots waterproof is located directly behind the leather and has billions of micro-porous pores. To enhance the boot’s water-repellent properties, you can use Vintage Handmade care products. For example, the leather cannot absorb itself with water and impede the breathability.
