The Blooming Boots!
While we all love the blooms that come with spring flowers, there
has been some less-lovely blooming happening this season—and
we want to fill you in.
What is “blooming” and why does it happen?
- In the world of boots, blooming refers to the white, powdery
marks that occasionally appear on rubber boots. Blooming naturally
occurs when insoluble particles rise to the surface of your
boots, causing a powdery effect. The marks are completely normal
and appear in many high-quality rubber products.
Can it be fixed?
If you don’t like the blooming effect on your boots, there is a simple and easy method to
restoring your boots to their high shine.
We will send kits out with every pair of women’s boots
that are ordered starting now.
- Apply olive oil liberally to the cloudy or dull surface of the boot.
- Clean off your boots, and wipe off the excess oil.
- Let your boots sit for 15 minutes.
- Buff with buffing cloth to a high shine.

Will you provide replacements or accept returns?
What is Zoubaby’s Return Policy?
- The original finish and shine is easily restored with regular use of our conditioning technique.
This method does not affect the performance or durability of the boots. Therefore,
we will not replace any pairs that experience the blooming effect. Simply follow
the directions precisely, and you will be happy with the results! Proper care is important
while owning a pair of Zoubaby boots. Be cautious when cleaning, any added oils or
polish that gets on the soles of the shoes can increase risk for slipping.
