Hiking with pleasure und plenty of room is given by the new model "Ramsau”. Dachstein ensures that this hiking boot has a broader shape which guarantees plenty of room and comfort for feet.
The soft leather inner lining supports the regulation of temperature and humidity. In fact, a new invented shaped tongue helps putting on the boot easier. A special retro look occurs due to the red laces, high grade oiled velour leather and burnished eyelets. Latest shoemaking technology with a special sole construction and a TPU stiffening plate increase the comfort for the foot arches – specifically on long hikes. The ‘Vibram® Multifilm’ sole also employs the very latest sole technology and assures excellent grip.
The right care for leather footwear
Particularly on hot days, leather boots and shoes guarantee optimised comfort in terms of warmth and humidity.
When caring for footwear after use, it is important to differentiate between leather and membrane footwear. Leather requires the application of regenerative and preservative substances, ideally a conventional shoe wax or care fluid. Wax should be applied with a cloth or a soft brush, whereas care fluids are sprayed onto the area in question and spread with a sponge. In this way the leather regains its suppleness and retains its water-resistant properties. Please note: Mesh elements should not come into contact with wax as this may block pores and impair breathability. Once wax has been applied to the leather, it may appear darker and take on a marbled effect. If this look is not desired, the outer surface can be gently rubbed with a wire brush or a special suede brush.
Hooks and eyelets can be protected from rust and corrosion by applying a dab of Vaseline or wax. There are special sprays to combat unpleasant smells. The insoles can wear out and should be replaced regularly, since they absorb the majority of the sweat produced and are subject to the greatest amount of wear.
Cleaning trekking boots outdoors
Jump in the stream!
On multiple-day tours it’s important to rinse off the worst of the dirt carefully at the end of the day in a stream or by using another source of water. Subsequently, laces should be fully loosened and insoles removed. Our tip: Even after a one-day tour, stepping into a stream makes cleaning at home much easier, because the dirt doesn’t get a chance to dry on.
