About this deal

The part of the boot placed into the water was from 20mm above the feather line to the sole of the boot (roughly the bottom third of the boot). No water penetration was found in the boot after 15,000 cycles. The cleaning process will affect the waterproof performance so re-proofing will be required, see below advice.

Fabric boots can be re-proofed whilst wet or dry. You may prefer to clean and dry out your boots, apply the reproofer the following day and leave to dry overnight again before next use. Although this takes a little longer, you will be able to see where you have sprayed the proofer on much easier than spraying on to wet boots. When selecting footwear it is important to consider location – the most suitable footwear is dependent on the terrain and environment you plan to be walking/hiking in. Using a re-proofing spray, spray all over from a distance of 5cm. Make sure you have an even coating over the entire boot. An information panel described the boot as: “Waterproof – Our IsoDry membrane allows your feet to breathe whilst allowing moisture to escape the shoe, keeping you comfortable when on the move.”Whether you apply to wet or dry boots, once the proofer has been applied, leave to air dry completely before wearing.

A High Street outdoors retailer has been told it can’t use an advertisement that claimed one of its boot models was waterproof. These boots also have a super high traction Vibram outsole which is great if you appreciate a little extra support when out on the trails. This isn’t to say the Odysseys have the most technical sole we’ve ever seen, but they certainly offer more grip than most budget hiking boots on the market.Brush your boots or shoes with a soft bristle brush to remove loose dirt. Be careful not to damage the material surface with abrasive brushes/ sponges. The waterproof ability of hiking boots depends on many factors including how often you wear them, what kind of weather you wear them in and how well you look after them. With no aftercare, waterproof shoes and boots should last a couple of years but with proper care, you can make sure they keep your feet dry for many more trips after that. Correct aftercare includes regular cleaning and reproofing, if you are an avid hiker, we’d recommend reproofing 3 or 4 times a year. Use a hairdryer to gently heat your boots up, this will help them absorb the dubbin. Be careful not to position the hairdryer too close to the boots and always use a low heat, the boots only need to be warmed slightly.
