Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. After having acquired a pair of these, I was wondering do you have to take special care of them and if so, what?
  2. There should have been a care and maintenance leaflet included in the box with them, failing that check out the lowa web site, they will probably tell you not to bull them or use polish but to use their 'special' wax that is an absolute fortune!
  3. If I use normal polish, won't that be ok?
  4. When I brought mine I was told, By a friend who worked for a reputabel 'outdoor' shop, and was told that normal polish will clod the pours of something in the boots and stop them breathing. Wether this is true or not i dont know. Nikwax (the one with the purple top) is what i use.
