Boot Care Tips

The rules that apply to care and conditioning of boots are very simple.

Treat your leather good in much the same manner as you treat your skin.  Your leather products require nutrients to keep them supple and strong.  The four steps for proper boot care are: Clean, Condition, Polish, and Protect.  Read more about the four steps of boot care here.

DIRT AND DUST are leather's worst enemies.  Wiping down often with a damp cloth can prevent dirt and dust from cutting away at the microscopic fibers that make leather strong and durable.

CONDITION LEATHER only when it is clean and dry so conditioner can penetrate through the pores to keep leather soft and pliable.  Lanolin based conditioners are best.  Too much oil or wax can clog the pores which cause the leather to dry out.  Also, oils and waxes attract dust.

RUJEVENATE BOOTS by applying a cream based polish.  This will cover scratches and bring a glossy finish.  Only boots that have a finish can be polished.

PROTECT BOOTS with a non-silicone water and stain protector.
