Welcome!

Managed through carelesness to lose years of posts so it's time to start again - hey ho.
Plus, happily, I've been diverted recently by great trips to China and South Africa. Back on course now - sort of!


How optimistic was that comment! Almost a full year with no attention paid to content. The shame of it!
No prizes for guessing what will be top of the 2013 New Year resolutions.

Clean, proof and condition


Meindl (www.meindl.co.uk ) has developed its own footwear care range that makes it simple and effective to treat and care for performance outdoor footwear. Proper aftercare ensures that leather performs as it should, stays supple, durable, keeps it shape and remains both waterproof and breathable.
Suitable for boots and shoes with or without Gore-Tex® linings, Meindl’s aftercare product range offers everything outdoor enthusiasts need to look after their footwear. Providing conditioning for leather, Meindl Sportwax @ £3.25rrp keeps leather supple and prevents it from cracking when drying out after repeated use, while the Meindl Wet Proof spray @ £4.99rrp provides a silicone coating to improve water repellency. Meindl’s Conditioner and Proofer @ £5.49rrp is a great all-round product as it combines a conditioner with a proofing agent to protect footwear from water penetration. Boots can be brought back to life with Meindl’s Cleaner In and Out product @ £4.25rrp, as it helps to neutralise lingering odours.  It keeps footwear smelling 'sweet' and provides a hygienic solution for cleaning the inside and outside of footwear without causing damage.
Although these products are designed for use with Meindl’s own footwear range, all the aftercare products can be used with any boot or shoe with a nubuck or suede upper.
