Guide Boot Care

Guide boots are made of water-repellent full grain Nubuck leather. They require little maintenance but should be cleaned and dried.

If using in saltwater always clean and rinse to prevent corrosion.

Use a brush to remove dust and dirt. Choose an old vegetable brush or toothbrush. For maximum thoroughness, remove laces prior to cleaning. Use specialized boot cleaner, saddle soap or maybe a mild dishwashing soap with luke-warm water.

Do not use bar soap or detergents.

Do not place wet boots close to a heat source (fireplace, campfire, wood stove, radiator, heater, sunny windowsill) as this can weaken adhesives and cause materials to become brittle or shrink.

Dry using natural methods (air dry) and try to keep them out of the sun for long periods of time. Boots dry faster when positioned upside-down. If desired, stuff a sheet or two of newspaper into each boot to absorb moisture. Change the paper each hour.

If you see any mold on your boots, brush in a mixture of 80% water and 20% vinegar.

Over time the use of leather conditioners may provide increased water repellency and can prevent cracking and drying of the leather.

Store boots in a place where temperatures are stable and normal. Do not store boots in attics, garages, car trunks or any unventilated spaces.

Never put boot in washing machine.

  1. Good, but still not sold on Vibram soles

    80%

    I’ve owned the previous model boot in both felt and rubber and the felt has much better traction. I installed one set of studs in the felt and two sets in the rubber and the felt still had better traction. They are durable and comfortable, but I wish they were offered in half sizes for a more precise fit.
  2. Great Boot

    100%

    I was in Montana near Missoula for 4 days and then in West Yellowstone for 6. The waters were higher than normal which made wading difficult. The boot held up to all the rocks and issues I ran into. The added pleasure was that the boot was lighter which made getting to the water and the rest of the experience a much better experience. I would highly recommend this product. By the way, we caught a lot of fish as well.
  3. These boots are amazing

    100%

    These are very comfortable and great boots can wear them all day there are just like hikers. Highly recommended
  4. Great boot

    100%

    I fish the San Juan River in New Mexico that has sand, snot covered rocks, and river flows that are high and low. I switched from a beginner felt sole boot to the G3 and don't regret it. I have never felt more sure footed, comfortable, and warmer in 26 F weather. The G3 is definitely worth the money. Just remember, your boots is a very important piece of safety equipment on the river. Sure footing means no broken bones. By the way, I do not wear metal cleats, just rubber Vibram sole. Great boot!!
