Reducing our (carbon) footprint
We realise our shipments create CO2 as they travel to their destination, which is not great for the environment.
That is why we are happy to let you know that every one of our shipments' carbon impact is offset by a donation to the Acapa - Bajo Mira y Frontera deforestation project in Ecuador.
Nikwax Nubuck & Suede Proof™ provides highly Durable Water Repellency (DWR). It leaves a flexible water repellent treatment on individual fibers of nubuck and suede. This allows moisture vapour to pass through, maintaining breathability and keeping your feet dry. Nikwax Nubuck & Suede Proof™ has been specifically designed and optimized for nubuck and suede combination footwear and will maintain the texture and appearance of the materials (after treatment, the suede/nubuck may initially be darker, but it should dry back to original colour).
Nikwax takes great care to minimize the effect of their products on the environment and the consumer. Their waterproofing products are water-based, non-aerosol, non-flammable, non-hazardous and environmentally friendly. They contain no harmful solvents or volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and are completely free of fluorocarbons (which have been shown to be persistent in the environment and have been associated with serious health issues).
- Brush off excess dirt with a damp cloth and clean footwear.
- Shake well before use. Press sponge applicator (underneath sponge) to break seal.
- Apply generously to damp/wet footwear.
- Work in with hands and let dry before use (we recommend applying it before bed so they will be ready in the morning).
Available at Glebe Trotters.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR NUBUCK AND SUEDE BLUNDSTONE BOOTS.

All orders are available as "Local Pick Up" at our brick and mortar location (860 Bank Street, Ottawa, Ontario) if desired. If choosing this option, you will be notified within 24 hours as to when your purchase should be ready for pickup.
We have added an Ottawa area "Glebe Trotters Delivery" option at checkout. One of our staff will personally drive your purchase out to you, which will usually reduce the wait for your purchase by a couple of days.

We have separate shipping rates for our footwear (and bags, belts, socks, etc.) and for our shoe care & accessories. Unfortunately if you have an order with something from both of these groups, our website will automatically combine these shipping rates. However, we will ship all items together and refund any unnecessary shipping costs to you (after purchase).
