ZLF - Zamberlan Ladies Fit
A women’s specific fit that Zamberlan developed to best suit the various needs of a woman’s foot anatomy. The major aspects taken into account are the following: wrapped ankle, supported instep, narrower heel pocket, higher arches, and a roomy toe area to wriggle toes. Used in all Zamberlan women's boots.
Hydrobloc® is a process completed during tanning to ensure the best quality of leather.The tanning is a special treatment that enhances water repellence, resistance and durability. To maintain such high features of the leather during prolonged use, a waterproof treatment was developed under the same name. We recommend this treatment to prolong the life of your boots.
Hydrolisys? - Disintegration of boot soles.
It could seems like a production defect… Actually that’s a spontaneous chemical reaction called “hydrolysis”.
In fact you should know that, if you make a rare use of your boots, (with time) the soles get hard and dry (like car tyres), even if they are new. It’s a natural deterioration of the material (polyurethane compounds), which the wedge is made of. Therefore the soles detach from the rest of the boots. This process is more frequent in areas with very humid microclimate or by using the boots in wet places.
That’s why it’s really important to wear your boots on a regular basis (even for walking a bit at home), in order to keep the soles (the material) “active”.
The boots should be kept in a dry place and treated with a maintenance kit; it’s very important to keep them clean, but do not dry your boots near a heat source as it would damage both the upper and the sole.
