To help your boots live longer, protect them with an ultra-tough toe cap made of Freesole®.
Start with a clean, dry boot. Stuff newspaper tightly inside the boot toe area. Apply tape tightly across toe to create straight edge. Lightly sand the toe area with sandpaper, then buff aggressively with a rag dipped in rubbing alcohol. Allow to dry and buff a second time with rubbing alcohol.
Paint the surface with Freesole. Be sure to cover all areas between the sole and the tape. Freesole will self level and become smooth.
Wait 45 minutes, then peel off tape. Do not leave tape on longer! Allow your new toe cap to cure completely overnight.
