As part of our commitment to green values and to reducing waste as much as possible, we have designed the boot so that all parts of it can be replaced individually if necessary. This includes the boot shell. We have provided instructions below for how to detach the TPU gaiter from the old boot shell and attach it to the new one, but if you don’t have the tools to change the shell yourself, your local saddle maker or cobbler may be able to help you.
It’s also worth mentioning that TPU material is recyclable in many countries, so please check with your local authorities before disposing of old or broken boots.

Our size chart lists the measurements of the inside boot sole, and Flex Boots fit hooves that are +/- 5mm of the listed width measurements, and no longer than the listed length measurement.

The boot shell, TPU gaiter and back strap are made of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), a material that is often called a hybrid between plastic and rubber. TPU offers the flexibility of rubber, but with the strength and durability of plastic.
Flex Boots are easy to clean and maintain. The TPU material keeps its elasticity and lasts longer if the boots are in regular use. After using the boots, simply rinse off any dirt and hang the boots to dry in a well-ventilated place away from direct sunlight. Do not store the boots in a closed space such as a box or in your car. Boot shell, TPU gaiter and back straps can be brushed clean and washed with water. Do not use cleaning products. Neoprene gaiter can be rinsed with water or washed in a washing machine in a cold cycle. Air dry only, do not tumble dry.
Flex Boots are designed, tested and manufactured in Finland.
