How To Care For Your Boots

The materials in your boots are some of the finest available. To extend the life of your boots, it is very important to perform maintenance on a regular basis. Cleaning your boots to remove dust and dirt and applying a quality leather conditioner, are critical in helping preserve the leather in your boots. Because many leathers differ in nature, some naturally and some due to the tanning process, the methods for proper boot care can vary. While the steps to caring for your boots are relatively easy. The following are some general suggestions for the different leathers that we offer:

COWHIDE LEATHERS (Bull Hide, Caprino, Madcat, Bison, Goat, El Paso, Crazy Cow, Worn Deer, Metallic, Napalino, Mignon, Puma, Ranch, Burnished Finishes, Copper Kettle, Embossed Leathers):

1)Remove dust and dirt with a soft brush or damp cloth.
2) While boots are still damp, apply a light coat of quality leather conditioner. Heavy coats of conditioner clog the leather pores and cannot be absorbed. Light coats are much more effective.
3) If you prefer sheen on your boots, apply a thin coat of cream polish (matching color for darker boots and neutral color for fighter colored boots). Let the polish dry, then brush off with a soft cloth.
4) For water protection, light coats of a non-silicone stain and water protector can be applied.
5) Calf leather is much thinner than cowhide. Calf can be cared for the same as cowhide but needs to be performed on a more regular basis.
