I am proud to say that our customers are very happy with WBSJ rain boots! Just for you to make rainy days more enjoyable with WBSJ, here are some tips to keep them in good shape for a long time.
Because they are 100% waterproof, your feet might get sweaty sometimes, and you don't want to wear them if inside of the boots are still kinda sweaty but the great thing is, these boots are so flexible, just turn them inside-out like the picture, let them dry naturally then they are ready to wear again! Also, take the insoles out and you can rinse the inside with mild soapy water and let them dry like this too.
Make sure to store them in a cool, dry location avoiding direct contact with any heat source, extreme cold or sunlight. Also storing them folded or creased for a long time is not good idea.
Don't worry if you see powdery white marks (it's called blooming), blooming is very normal for natural rubber products as natural rubber produces the white powdery residue to protect its surface, and is completely harmless. You can also get them back to their original look by washing with mild soapy water, let them dry naturally, then apply silicon based clear shoe shine sponge throughout the boots. Just be careful the shoe shine sponge doesn't contain alcohol or any kind of volatile ingredients which can harm natural rubber.
Lastly, WBSJ boots are not recommended to use where sharp objects are around. In order to maximise the comfort, flexibility and travel functions, the material is made thiner than other rubber boots. Just be careful with rocks, barnacles, or anything sharp as they can rip your WBSJ boots.
Enjoy the rain with WBSJ!
