Understanding our warranty.
Your statutory consumer rights with regard to the purchase of clothing and footwear can be found in the Sale of Goods Act. They refer to standards of quality and consumer expectations, and what you should do if these are not met.
Any pair of shoes or boots you buy should be of reasonable quality, with no damage such as missing pieces, holes, stains etc. The items should be fit for the purposes intended – i.e. if a boot is described as waterproof, it should be exactly that!
As listed in our exclusions, we will not warranty any returns that exhibit wear or wear related issues:
Our boots are waterproof, insulated and comfortable straight from the box any issue that is due to a manufacturing issue will show up within the first weeks of use, such as leaking or poor bonding. We advise to try on boots in store to ensure correct fit and to wear the boots as intended straight away.
Whilst the rubber and nylon upper are very durable, it is essential to ensure that you maintain them with regular cleaning and conditioning. Simply spray them with water and use a soft brush to remove any dirt then apply a rubber conditioner to replace the lost plasticising agents in the rubber. Acidic or alkali soils, animal waste and chemical fertilisers all leach the plasticisers from the rubber upper and soles. If regularly exposed and not cleaned and maintained it will harden and crack causing splits and eventual leaking. Grubs Boots Limited recommends the use of McNett Revivex spray which is available from www.grubswarehouse.com and leading retailers.
Grubs Boots Limited does not warrant:
- Product returned for incorrect fit or injuries sustained due to it, such as blisters or rubbing.
- Excessive or quick wear.
- Cracking or splitting of uppers and or soles.
- Cut, snagged or damaged upper.
- Over twelve months old.
- That are a replacement pair of boots for a pair that has failed within the warranty period and has been replaced under warranty. If boots are replaced under warranty the warranty continues from the original date of purchase not the replacement date.
- Products without proof of purchase.
- Persons other than the original purchaser.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our products and our ethical approach to their production. We are a responsible trading partner with all our customers. The following procedure is the only method of warranty redemption:

Ion will replace product free of charge by invoice deduction against the next available order at the prevailing cost price, less any marketing discount, shipping or importation costs.
