Caring for your rain boots
Natural rubber footwear requires a little care in order to keep it in great condition. You should always try to keep the rain boots free of dirt and grime to avoid unnecessary wear and tear. Applying natural plant oils, such as olive oil, also helps - do this before your first wear. The oil preserves the natural suppleness of the rubber, thereby extending the life of your rain boots. Do not leave out in the sun for long periods as this can dry out and fade the natural rubber. If the interior is wet, remove the innersole to let it dry out fully inside. Click here for more.
Rain boots made from natural materials
Bisgaard rain boots are made from natural rubber, which is a durable and soft material. Natural rubber is 100% waterproof and supple. This makes the rain boots flexible, comfortable, and easy to wear and walk around in. Our rain boots are designed to have a great fit while providing support and stability to the feet. We make rain boots with narrow shafts which ensures that your child can walk around naturally in their rain boots and that wearing them does not hinder their play or ability to walk.
Room for growth in rain boots
When buying rain boots for your child, avoid buying ones with too much room for growth as rain boots cannot be strapped to the foot in the same way that other footwear can. If the rain boots are far too big they will wear down faster, both on the inside as well as the outside, as your child's feet and heels will slide back and forth in the boots and in so doing wear out the soles. Rain boots are already fairly large and wide compared to other shoes and boots. You should therefore make sure to choose a pair with an appropriate volume, both in terms of the shaft and width. If you want a little extra warmth and a more snug fit, you can add an extra wool sole inside the boots. A thick pair of stockings or wool socks can also help.
Bisgaard supports children at risk in Honduras to move on from childhood at an orphanage to become independent and active members of society. They do so by giving them an opportunity for education, job-training, mentoring and social networks. A solution provided by the children's charity Viva.
