So much love and care has gone into crafting your Clobber Australian-made footwear. Here are some tips on how to keep them at their best.

Protect

As soon as you get your new Clobber footwear, we recommend you apply the protector spray all over the outer surface of the sheepskin to guard your boots against water, oil and to resist soiling.

Protector spray is available from Clobber Australia.

Tip: Your Clobber sheepskin footwear will stay in pristine shape for longer if you avoid putting them on dirty or sweaty feet.

Cleaning Spot Marks

Full Wash

To clean the whole boot, we recommend hand washing in lukewarm water with wool wash.

Then give them a good rinse with clean water, hand squeeze out excess water and allow them to dry in a well-ventilated, shady area. The natural drying process might take up to a week.

Due to the unique nature of genuine sheepskin, it is important NOT to dry your footwear in direct sunlight or in front of a direct heat source.

Tip: Clobber Australia sells separate sheepskin inner soles. So if your boots are well-worn and you want extra under-foot comfort, insert new inner soles.
