Härkila rubber boots are handmade in natural rubber. They are strong and with the correct care, they will serve you for many years. Rubber Care adds nutrition to the rubber and keeps it soft and flexible thereby maintaining high performance, expanding the lifetime and keeping the rubber beautiful.
Moisture and “shine”
All Härkila rubber boots are given a treatment to protect them against drying (cracking). This means that new boots can sometimes feel greasy or look “shiny”. This is a normal characteristic of high quality rubber and is a natural, harmless process. The “shine” is easy to remove with a dry cloth.
Moisture must be reapplied for maintenance. We recommend applying Härkila Rubber Care regularly. Härkila Rubber Care cleans, prevents cracks and protects against UV damage.
