These handmade rubber boots are made of the finest single-estate natural rubber which is harvested sustainably. This rubber is mixed with a secret recipe, making the fundamental composition 52% natural rubber and 48% secret recipe. Entirely PVC-free, Ilse Jacobsen boots contain no animal by-products. The result is a sturdy and reliable companion for rainy days.
Ilse's team have developed a special anti-ice sole with a rough surface, providing the best possible traction in slippery and icy conditions. The cold won’t ruin your rubber boots either - these soles are made of lightweight EVA, withstanding temperatures down to -40 degrees Celsius and the upper can withstand temperatures down to -20 degrees Celsius.
Natural rubber will eventually develop a white surface over the years if you do not treat it regularly. This is simply because the rubber loses its essential oil. To keep your boots in great condition for many years to come, we recommend that you treat them with Ilse Jacobsen's oil once a month.
Ilse Jacobsen was born and raised in the Danish island of Sjælland. Hornbæk, the seaside town where she grew up on the island, with its small harbour, wide sandy beaches and dunes is the backdrop to Ilse Jacobsen's life and creative inspiration.
