New at A.S.Adventure: shoe care

We don’t need to convince you that walking is good for you. But did you know that regular maintenance is also good for your hiking shoes? You should clean your shoes after every hike, but give them a thorough cleaning on a regular basis as well. This way, you extend the life and improve the performance of your favourite hiking buddies.


Don’t know where to start with all those different kinds of materials and products? Do you prefer to leave such maintenance to a professional, or do you simply lack the time? Our in-house maintenance workshop prepares your shoes for a new adventure with the utmost of care.

Which shoes can be serviced?

You can bring in both waterproof and non-waterproof shoes for maintenance.

We maintain the following materials:

•    Leather hiking shoes

•    Suede hiking shoes

•    Nubuck hiking shoes

•    Textile hiking shoes

•    Synthetic material hiking shoes

Before & after

A comprehensive approach

During the maintenance, we thoroughly clean your shoes, after which we re-impregnate them, and/or give them an in-depth wax treatment. Make sure you have removed the worst of the dirt from your hiking shoes and bring them into your A.S.Adventure store dry and free of mud (‘brush clean’). 


Our shoe experts always work in three steps:

Step 1: Cleaning the inside

Waterproof shoes (Gore-Tex or other membrane) are first cleaned on the inside to remove all salt crystals and bacteria.

Step 2: Cleaning the outside


We clean your shoes thoroughly with a cleaning product. All underlying dirt is removed very effectively.


Step 3: Impregnation or waxing


This will restore the fabric’s watertightness and breathability. The raindrops will then visibly ‘bead’ off the material again.

We use the environmentally friendly and FPC-free products from Grangers for all shoe maintenance. So when you use our maintenance service for hiking shoes, you’re not only taking extra care of your material, but of nature as well! Service meets sustainability.

Why maintain your shoes?

•    A shoe that soaks up water and dirt quickly loses its breathability. That’s why it’s a good idea to give the outside of your shoes a good clean after every walk.


•    Hiking shoes that are maintained regularly and correctly last much longer. It’s better for you because you can enjoy your high-quality gear for longer and it’s better for our planet.


•    The technical properties of the material (waterproofing and breathability) will slowly but surely decrease. By giving them a major overhaul once in a while, i.e. cleaning them with the proper products and using the proper method, your shoes will be like new again!


•    We have all the know-how in-house. We maintain your hiking shoes with the greatest care and using the correct, sustainable products from Grangers.
