Are Grünbein shoes waterproof?

No. Grünbein shoes are welted. This high-quality manufacturing process guarantees that the shoes are more durable, easier to repair and have a better fit, but it also means that the shoes are not waterproof, especially at the seams.

We therefore recommend that you seal the sole seams with a so-called seam sealer (e.g. Water Protect Special by Shoeboy’s) and treat the shoes regularly with an impregnation spray for leather. You can find out more about shoe care here.
