The Malvern Size & Fit
(Take your regular size)
Our Men's sizing is true to size. For any adjustments, we've provided a handy guide on each product page if this is different!
If you are between foot sizes, we suggest going up a size.
We all need a little TLC to keep us as good as new, and your beautiful new Fairfax & Favor investment is no different.
Leather is a natural material and needs oil/moisture to keep it soft and supple. To stop it drying out, hardening and cracking, treat it at least once a month with Renapur Leather Balsalm. Dry, cracked, or dirty leather can prevent the waterproof Sympatex ® membrane from performing effectively. Use a sponge or brush and work the cream into both the toe creases and around the sole unit of your boots. A small time maintaining the outer leather will help your boots perform for many years.
Or for more information, check our Ultimate Guide to leather & suede care.
Not in the washing machine, please! Clean the leather with a neutral-coloured microfibre cloth and leave it to dry naturally. Remove mud and dirt immediately to stop moisture being drawn from the leather. Then re-apply the Renapur Leather Balsalm afterwards to reintroduce the required oils and moisture content.
Always read the directions of the care product, and test on an inconspicuous area first. Fairfax & Favor cannot be held responsible for improper use of care or cleaning products. For any concerns, please contact our Customer Service team.
MAINTENANCE & STORAGE
The Malvern's are tested to British Industry standards for 8 hours to confirm no water ingress. This means that the boots are waterproof to the elements for up to 8 hours if they are maintained properly*.
However, like all leather performance boots, excessive exposure will cause water absorption into, and eventually through, the leather. After exposure to water, the boots must be dried out fully at natural room temperature, and not in direct heat or sunlight. If the boots are not fully dried out after use, the length of time that the boots will remain fully waterproof may be lessened. Similarly, exposure to salt water or animal waste / ammonia may cause degradation of the leather and the lining, and prevent it from performing effectively.
Punctures to the sole, insole damage and nicks/tears in the lining can all affect the waterproof ability of the boot.
Store your new boots away from heat, damp and direct sunlight. Where possible, store your boots in their dustbags and blue box, and use a Signature Boot Bag for extra protection when travelling.
*Whilst the boots are tested to be waterproof in everyday conditions, puddles and wet grass etc. We do not recommend fully submerging or wading in them. For this type of activity the only true protection would be a rubber wellington.
Please note that excess moisture that is retained in your footwear can accelerate the insoles coming loose in your shoe. Please contact our Customer Service team for more information regarding this.
