What is "normal wear and tear?"

Normal wear and tear is defined as the wearing down of the sole or upper of a shoe, whilst only wearing it for its intended use.


"We're all tempted to just stuff them in the bag until we use them next." Cleaning the shoe regularly ensures that no small particles of dirt or grit are left inside the shoe which can cause the premature abrasion on your socks and lining of the shoe (not to mention your foot).

Remove the footbed, wash it down inside and out with water or rinse it in a stream if you're out in the middle of nowhere, since we know you like that kind of thing. Allow to dry naturally with the footbed removed, DO NOT force dry as this can damage the uppers and midsole.
