5 tips to help maintain your footwear

Firstly, clean your footwear regularly, at least once a week, as dirt can impair its performance. Use a soft bristle brush to remove dirt from everyday use. You can also use a sponge or cloth soaked in soapy water or white vinegar to clean the stains. We will be posting soon for more tips on how to clean your shoes. Stay tuned!

Secondly, it is important to ventilate the footwear as much as possible.

Third factor is waterproofing. All the exterior materials of Panter products have been subjected to a deep-water repellency process, but this water repellent treatment does not last forever. Periodically apply water repellent spray (fluoridated silicone compound) on the surface of the boot.

Another important aspect in leather care is the use of products to achieve its beautification. The products can be applied after the shoes have been cleaned only. A quality bitumen for waxing gives shine and care to the shoe’s skin. Periodically apply nourishing cream for skins suitable for footwear with a membrane. The use of other products based on fats, oils or silicone, can damage the perspiration capacity of the skin.

Finally, when you need your footwear to be stored for long periods of time, for example when you store your boots from one year to the next, it is advisable to use a last to prevent them from deforming. Keep them away from heat sources and humid areas. If you do not have a last in hand, you can insert a piece of newspaper in its place and give it the shape of the last.

Well, let’s get to work!

And remember, the conditions of the safety footwear usage, its maintenance and care increase the useful life of safety footwear.
