CARE: Felt boots are easy to take care of. The surface can be easily cleaned by lightly brushing with a soft brush and a damp cloth with or without some mild soap. Direct water should be avoided. If the felt boots loose their form due to becoming wet, it is recommended to reshape the boots by filling them with paper to reshape, and drying them at a low temperature (+40 C). The preferable choice for storing the boots when not in use, is a dark location at room temperature or colder. Felt products also need to be protected from moths.
SIZING: European sizing is used, please review Uniikii's sizing chart. We recommend for 1/2 sizes to go to the next size up. Ex: You are a CDN/US size 8.5, purchase a size 39. If you are a small CDN/US 8, purchase a 38. It is preferable to wear the boots loose, they should fit like a slipper. We recommend adding an insole of your choice as needed for arch support. Insoles that come with the boot can be removed.
