How to Repair Muck Boots

Muck boots are self-insulating, 100% waterproof footwear that are worn by hunters, fisherman and cattle farmers. These boots are constructed from pliable rubber and come in a variety or sizes, heights and colours. For the most part, these boots will remain durable for several years. Unfortunately, it is possible that a pair of Muck boots can become damaged and require repair. This repair can be performed at home with the assistance of white spirit and rubber sealant.

Clean the affected area with a soft cloth that has been soaked with white spirit.

Allow the spirits to dry and place a small piece of cardboard inside of the Muck shoe at the site of the hole. This will ensure that any sealant used to repair the hole does not spread into the inner boot.

Stretch the punctured area with your fingers and squeeze a liberal amount of the rubber sealant, such as AquaSeal, into the hole.

Covering your finger with a piece of plastic, spread the sealant until the entire hole is filled, including the area around the hole to create a complete seal.

Wipe away any excess sealant with paper towel and allow the Muck boot to dry for 24 hours.
