Boot Storage

All Rubber based materials may break down over time through the process of oxidation and hydrolysis. This normally occurs after at least 10 years so is not usually an issue. It can be accelerated in tropical climates if not stored in a cool well ventilated place, or if stored in direct sunlight.
