Football Boot Care Instructions

These care instructions should be followed to get the most out of your new football boots.
  1. After playing, loosen your laces to allow easy removal of your boots (Don’t kick them off at the heel!).
  2. Remove loose dirt by knocking your boots together, then brush your football boots with a stiff brush.
    Do not use a wire brush as this will damage them, instead try and use a brush with bristles made from a natural material.
  3. Wipe the football boots with a damp cloth to remove smaller particles of dirt.
    Do not use a cleaning agent to clean your football boots.
  4. If the football boots have been used in wet conditions, you can use an old toothbrush to remove dirt that has been trapped in small grooves.
  5.  Stuff the football boots with newspaper to maintain shape and to help extract any moisture. If the boots are very wet, you may need to replace the newspaper daily.
  6. Allow the football boots to dry in a natural heat.
Warning: Drying the boots with heat can cause the football boots to become stiff and the adhesives can deteriorate. Stiff boots are far more likely to rip and are weak. Deteriorated adhesives can make joints weak, such as the join between the upper and the sole plate. Additionally, heat drying your football boots can cause your soleplate to warp.
