Show your Dubarry footwear some care
Dubarry footwear is made to last, using the finest quality leather that ensures high performance and protection. But all leather needs care, and with a little time and the right treatments, your footwear will stay supple and waterproof, whatever you do in yours.
Cleaner – Suitable for all types of leather
Aids in the removal of dirt/other residues and prepares leather for proofing and conditioning. Heavy mud and dirt should be removed initially under the tap with water and a soft brush. You can then use the Cleaner ideally with lukewarm water scrubbing vigorously in a circular motion with a sponge or soft brush. Rinse thoroughly with fresh tap water afterwards but avoid over-soaking the leather. Use tap water only to clean any fabric sections. Allow the boots to dry naturally before any further treatment. Never use artificial heat or leave in proximity to an open fire. For best results, air dry for 48 hours or at a minimum overnight. Always keep care products out of reach of children.
Conditioner – Suitable for all smooth leather
This will condition the leather restoring its original appearance and also offer water repellency. Apply using a soft cloth rubbing sparingly into the surface. Apply as many thin coats as necessary for desired finish. Always keep care products out of reach of children.
Protector – Suitable for all nubuck and suede leather
Restores a water repellent finish while at the same time offering high stain resistance. We advise that you use this product outdoors rather than inside, due to its strong odour. Spray the Protector over the nubuck or suede allowing 5 minutes between applications. Wipe away any excess from soles and welts. For best results allow to dry overnight. Always keep care products out of reach of children.
Leather Cream – Suitable for all smooth leather
Dubarry strongly recommends for well-worn footwear use of our Leather Cream in the foot area and in particular the flex part of the smooth leather. This will help protect, preserve and soften the leather. Apply sparingly to smooth leather surfaces with a soft cloth or soft brush.
DO NOT apply to the nubuck or suede sections of the boots. Excess cream should be wiped clean or allowed to soak into leather. Always keep care products out of reach of children
Yard manure, waste liquids and salt water can be very corrosive to leather. To prolong performance and protection for your Dubarry footwear, always scrub them with a soft brush and rinse with fresh tap water after exposure.

- Boots should be cleaned, dried and treated before storing for a prolonged period
- Boots will keep better shape over time when Dubarry boot trees are inserted
