We know you love your kids' boots and we know that you want to keep them in top shape so that they can last through more than one season (or one kid)!
We use high-quality materials in the construction of our products and test them with kids who play hard.
The term "waterproof" can mean various things, especially when it comes to outdoor gear. The rubber soles on our boots are (obviously :-) waterproof. The upper textile has been specially constructed for MyMayu and is 3-layer with a DWR (Durable Water-Repellent) coating. The seams of our Explorer boots have been taped or glued, adding extra "waterproofness". We know you love them because they just work in so many different situations!
There are a few simple things that you can do to make sure that your MyMayu boots (and ALL your outdoor gear items) last and perform at their best.
3 Tips to Keep Your Boots in Great Shape
- Many people are unaware that, with use, over a period of time the DWR coating on the textile starts to break down due to dirt and other elements. This coating can be rejuvenated with products such as our Textile Spray. The best thing to do is to spray your boots and other waterproof textile gear on a regular basis. Because the boots are constantly being put through puddles and dirt, it is best to spray them often. We recommend every 3-4 weeks if worn daily.
- Because dirt is the culprit in breaking down the DWR coating, it is a good idea to brush excess dirt off with a cloth when the boots are dry.
- Don't leave your boots too close to the campfire!
