Rubber Boot Care

To ensure your Le Chameau rubber boots stay in good condition it's important that they are regularly cleaned with water and allowed to dry naturally.

Occasionally you might notice a white powdery "Bloom" on the boots. This is perfectly normal and is insoluble particles that have risen to the surface, which is largely due to the characteristic of a premium product made from high-grade rubber and will not compromise the durability or performance of the boots.

Do's and Dont's of boot care
  • When removing your boots, use a boot jack to avoid damaging the heel.
  • Clean your boots with nothing more than water and a brush.
  • Let the boots air dry.
  • Use a silicone spray and polish using a soft, dry cloth.
  • Keep your boots in a dry and ventilated place, away from direct sunlight and away from any heat source.

  • If storing your boots for a long period, clean them thoroughly and store away from direct sunlight in a cool, dry place.
  • Never dry your boots in direct contact with a heat source like a radiator or a fireplace.
  • Do not use aggressive products, like detergents, to clean your boots.
