Please note that there may be some products that we do not ship to certain destinations, which will be indicated in the shopping basket. Should a delivery of goods be returned by a courier, through no fault of our own, then we reserve the right to deduct any carriage fee charged from any subsequent refund.

Any specific timescales for delivery and/or collection which the Company gives are estimates only, this includes 24hr service.

Some Guidelines to help you

 - Boots are leaking

 Complaints about leakage without an obvious fault are mostly due to the dampness caused by sweaty feet! Please put the boots in a bucket of water

with a weight and old paper inside. This way you can easily test if the boots are indeed leaking.

 - Cuts behind the toecap

Dunlop Purofort boots have a cross-linked structure that provides flexibility and strength. Purofort material does not tear.

Cuts behind the toecap or at the boot are generally caused by normal use. For instance heavy equipment and/or cattle. Also frequent kneeling on

one knee (dairy environment) can have an impact. These complaints are not covered by our warranty policy.

 In case of any doubts, please check the thickness of the material. With a minimum thickness of at least 3 mm, the Purofort material offers its well knownstrength and functionality.

 - Small air bubble / small pinhole

A Purofort boot can have tiny pinholes or air bubbles. This is inherent to the material. The Purofort material is a unique material with millions of evenly distributed air pockets. A tiny air bubble is one of these small air pockets and does not mean that the boot is leaking. Behind these small pinholes there is sufficient Purofort material. Small air bubbles and small pinholes do not affect the functionality of the boot.
