USE AND MAINTENANCE

Guide to proper use of the shoes

Andrew footwear is made using high-quality materials designed to last in time. By following a few simple and careful procedures the footwear can be preserved correctly, maintaining over the long term its original quality and efficiency:

  1. AFTER USE, OPEN UP THE FOOTWEAR, TAKE OUT THE INSOLE AND LEAVE TO AIR AND DRY.
  2. REMOVE ANY DIRT / FOREIGN OBJECTS / DEBRIS THAT COULD DAMAGE THE INTERNAL SYMPATEX MOISTURE TECH WATERPROOF MEMBRANE WHERE FITTED.
  3. FOR DIRT/MUD ETC., WASH THE UPPER AND SOLE WITH WARM WATER ONLY, AND IF NECESSARY A MILD SOAP, USING A DAMP SPONGE OR IF NECESSARY A BRUSH WITH SOFT RUBBER/NYLON BRISTLES.
  4. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES USE DETERGENTS OR CHEMICAL SOLVENTS.
  5. FOR FOOTWEAR WITH A LEATHER LINING, WIPE OUT WITH A DAMP CLOTH AFTER USE.
  6. DRY IN A VENTILATED AREA, AWAY FROM HEAT SOURCES (RADIATORS, STOVES ETC.).
  7. NEVER EXPOSE TO DIRECT SUNLIGHT AND DO NOT FILL WITH NEWSPAPER ETC. (THIS WOULD PROLONG THE DRYING TIME NEEDED UNNECESSARILY).
  8. PERIODICALLY TREAT THE LEATHER (WITH THE FOOTWEAR STILL SLIGHTLY DAMP) USING SPECIFIC ANDREW HIGH QUALITY PRODUCTS.  USING THIS PRODUCT MAY RESULT IN THE LEATHER BECOMING A SLIGHTLY DARKER COLOUR.

2. Storage

To avoid the risk of deterioration, the shoes must be transported and stored in their original boxes (without nylon bags) in dry, ventilated and not too hot place. If taken out of their original packaging not damaged, new shoes can generally be considered suitable for wearing.

3. Removable insole

All the ANDREW shoes come with a removable insole.

The certified ergonomic and protective features refer to the shoe complete with its insole. Always use the shoe with its insole! Replace the insole only with an equivalent and original ANDREW insole.
