SLIP RESISTANCE

The soles of all footwear in this catalogue have good slip characteristics however, slip resistance is a factor of both the sole and the surface underfoot including the conditions of that surface, it is not possible to list all the conditions which will reduce the anti-slip characteristics. Common ones are oil and detergent spills, water on tiled surfaces and dirty or contaminated metal planks - these situations and many others require the wearer to use extreme caution.
Remember, if you have any doubts about the suitability of a sole contact us and we will advise you accordingly.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Leather is easy to care for

All the footwear in this catalogue has quality leather uppers made from selected hides.

We strongly recommended that the following routines be carried out to extend the effective life of your footwear.

DAILY Use a soft cloth or brush to remove dirt etc., then remove remain­ing traces of dirt by using a lightly dampened sponge or brush. Leather is not waterproof - if you do have to get your footwear wet leave them to DRY NATURALLY. NEVER FORCE DRY (using oven, fire heater) as this will drastically reduce the life of the leather upper.
WEEKLY More often if used in damp or harsh areas, treat the leather uppers with a reliable dubbin or dressing by rubbing liberal­ly into the leather, especially along the seams.
