Regularly clean Mud and dirt can dry out the leather on your footwear, causing them to age prematurely. Rinse, brush or wipe off all dirt and mud after use. Thoroughly clean your footwear a few times a season to extend their life. After removing the visible mud, we recommend Nikwax Footwear Cleaning Gel. It cleans the breathable surface, and prepares boots for any waterproofing treatment. When cleaning, avoid solvents, petroleum, and detergents. Whatever you do, do not put your shoes in a clothes washer or dryer! This will warp and adversely effect the construction.
All of the materials used by Asolo has some degree of water resistance. Over time that resistance will fade and it is time to re-waterproof. Asolo recommends Nikwax for all your waterproofing needs. The Nikwax water-based formula is safe to use and is free of PFC’s, Phosphates, or Hydrocarbons.For nubuck or suede textured leather footwear, use Nikwax Nubuck & Suede Proof. For fabric, or fabric and leather combination footwear, use Nikwax Fabric & Leather Proof.Clean and treat your footwear at least once a season if worn weekly. If worn daily, or in particularly harsh environments treat more frequently.
Remove the insoles and allow to dry at room temperature (60-70 degrees Fahrenheit.) Do not use excessive heat of any kind for drying. This will change the fit and degrade the construction of the footwear. Stuffing with newspaper will remove excess moisture.
