How do I clean my Baretraps?/ How do I care for my Baretraps?Updated a year ago

In general, we recommend that our footwear be cleaned by wiping clean with a dry cloth. We do not recommend using any chemical or water or cleanser.

Never put Baretraps in the dryer or let dry in direct sunlight. 

  • This can damage the construction of the boot or sandal. 

Rebound Sandals:

  • Are not waterproof. 
  • We do not recommend immersing them in water or soapy water. 
  • Drying on the patio is okay, BUT only in the shade, never in the dryer and do not leave out in the sun.

Synthetic Leather

  • clean using warm water and mild soap. Simply, mix the two together and apply gently using a soft cloth; rubbing away any visible dirt.

    • Gently scrub the surface with soap and water. 
    • Lightly rinse with a cloth to remove any access soap.
    • When finished, use a clean, damp cloth to remove excess residue. 
    • Allow drying naturally in a well-ventilated area. 
  • Make sure to clean your boots right away after being in salty conditions.  

For more stubborn stains:

    • Mix some water and vinegar (easy on the vinegar, you can always do it again).
    • Gently, wipe down the boots.  Be mindful not to scrub too hard, as it could damage the boot.
    • When finished, lightly rinse the boot, and let dry in a well-ventilated area. 


Can I use waterproofing spray? 

Using Waterproofing Spray:

Waterproofing spray can be used as an additional barrier of protection and use to extend the life of our products or restore the weatherproofing properties of your boots. Here are some quick tips when using waterproofing spray:

  • Make sure your shoes are clean and totally dry before you apply the spray.  (Do not dry in direct sunlight)
  • Carefully follow the instructions on the product.
  • Don’t forget to spray around the boot seams for extra waterproof protection. 
  • Only use spray that is designed specifically for shoes and for your specific boot material (ex. Synthetic leather)
