Recommendations for Wearing and Maintaining your City Boots

Blizzard Boots are designed for durability and to be worn in cold weather. They are made for winter activities in the snow and should not be exposed to water. They are not waterproof. Water can enter the boot if they are worn in melted snow or other humid conditions. These products will have a greater longevity if they are not exposed to such conditions. It is therefore important to avoid wearing them when it rains or in wet snow.

After use, remove the insoles and interior soles to let them dry. If your boots are wet, make sure to let them dry at room temperature in a well-ventilated, dry space. NEVER DRY YOUR BOOTS NEXT TO A HEAT SOURCE, since this could dry out the leather and cause fur loss;

In the event that you wear your boots in a place where road salt is used, simply clean the fur of your boots in fresh snow or use a clean damp cloth to wipe off any salt residue;

It is important to avoid repeated rubbing in order to minimize fur loss. For example, after wearing take off the boots using your hands rather than using the opposite foot to remove a boot.

Never wash real fur in water.

Responsible Storage

At the end of the winter season, it is important to store your fur items in a cool, dry place. Leaving the product out in open air or in its original box is consistent with effective storage.

It’s time to prepare for next season!

When putting your products away for the year, we recommend that you take a moment to check the condition of your boots. Most of our products can be repaired by a cobbler or sewing professional near you, or we can also make certain repairs. The ideal period for our team to take on repair work is between March and August, since it’s a quieter time of year and our turnaround time is therefore much faster.

To request a repair, change a removable insole, etc, please refer to the section Steps to request a repair with or without guarantee.
