Frequently Asked Questions

Boot Care

What is the Dubarry leather cream for?

Dubarry strongly recommends for well-worn footwear use of our Leather Cream in the foot area and in particular the flex part of the smooth leather. This will help protect, preserve and soften the leather. Apply sparingly to smooth leather surfaces with a soft cloth or soft brush. DO NOT apply to the nubuck or suede sections of the boots. Excess cream should be wiped clean or allowed to soak into leather. Always keep care products out of reach of children.

What should I do if I get horse manure on the boots?

Yard manure, waste liquids and salt water can be very corrosive to leather. To prolong performance and protection for your Dubarry footwear, always scrub them with a soft brush and rinse with fresh tap water after exposure.

What should I use to clean my Dubarry boots?

The first step in your Dubarry care regime is to remove heavy mud and dirt, which should be removed initially with tap water and a brush. Make sure that yard manure and waste liquids are thoroughly rinsed off immediately with fresh tap water. The same applies to seawater and/or salt. Then use our scrub Cleaner, which has been developed using skin care technology. It contains a light beaded material that aids in the removal of dirt and other residues. It leaves the footwear in prime condition ready for conditioning.

Clothing Care

How do I clean my Dubarry clothing?

Please adhere strictly to the cleaning guides of the labels of your Dubarry garments.

How do I clean my Dubarry tweed garments?

Our tweeds are enhanced with Teflon® fabric protector, which provides durable, long-lasting protection against oil- and water-based stains, dust and dry soil. Fabrics with Teflon® stay looking newer longer and are easier to care for. We recommend dry cleaning ONLY as a cleaning method for our tweed garments.

Footwear Size

Are EU clothing sizes different than UK sizes?

Please check the Dubarry Size Conversion Charts for clothing here. The charts show the equivalent European and UK sizes to the size in which our footwear and clothing has been manufactured. As sizing varies across different brands and markets, this information is offered as a guide.

Can my waterproof breathable footwear be stretched?

We do not recommend the stretching of Dubarry footwear, as stretching may not resolve your issue, and can damage the GORE-TEX membrane, causing your footwear to leak. You may choose to bring the footwear to a local cobbler to see if they can help you in this instance but you do so at your own risk. We always recommend that you visit an authorised Dubarry stockist to try on your footwear to ensure that it fits you correctly.

How do I choose Dubarry boots that will fit my calf size?

The Dubarry country boot collection contains boots in a range of sizes and calf widths. Dubarry have developed three special variations of our classic Galway boot to cater for a range of fitting requirements. Please consult the boot measurement charts here to find a pair that suits your sizing needs. Please note that these guides are merely indicative as feet/leg dimensions do vary from person to person.

I have a wider calf, how do I find a pair of Dubarry boots to fit me?

The Dubarry country boot collection contains boots in a range of sizes and calf widths. The Galway ExtraFit™ boot caters for the more generous calf muscle. Foot entry for higher in-steps has been increased plus there is additional joint measurement for a wider foot. Please consult the boot measurement charts here to find a pair that suits your sizing needs.

I have very slim legs, can I find a pair of Dubarry boots that will look good on me?

Dubarry have recently introduced the Galway SlimFit™ for customers with a slimmer calf. This version of Galway is narrower around the calf muscle area. Foot entry and joint measurements are the same as the Galway RegularFit™ boot. Find out more here.
