SIX STEPS 1. Basic stuff first; don’t try and slip or kick your boots off! Loosening the laces and taking them off properly will help them keep their shape and cut down on wear and tear on the heels. 2. Lightly tap your boots together to get rid of any loose mud, and use a non-wire brush to get in between the studs for the rest. 3. Give the upper a once-over with a damp cloth to remove smaller particles of soil; avoid using a detergent and instead concentrate on removing as much dirt as possible. 4. Get hold of an old toothbrush to get in between the grooves of the soleplate and any features on the upper. Getting mud from in-between the sole and upper will add weeks to the life of your cleats. 5. Stuff the toes with newspaper or scrunched-up plastic bags to maintain the shape and form of the forefoot. 6. Allow them to dry as naturally for as long as possible. Putting them in front of a radiator or heater will damage the adhesive and stiffen the leather, so avoid artificial heat! Created by footy-boots.com ISSUE 03 MAR 2012
