To keep your boots in good shape it is recommended that you clean, condition,and protect them. Regularly brush off any loose dirt and dust. Certain leather finishes allow for you to wipe down with a damp cloth but please always test a small area to make sure there will be no damage. If your boots get wet, let them dry naturally. Avoid drying them near heat or direct sunlight. (Direct sunlight will cause them to fade). Conditioning of the leather should occur when it is clean and dry. Too much oil or wax can attract dust and clog the pores causing dryness.
Please ask your local leather/shoe repair person for recommendations of readily available products. Let them know our boots are dyed with vegetable dyes. Always test on a small spot on the inside or inconspicious area of the boot and wait 24 hours before using on the entire boot. .Do not store your boots in damp places and allow them to breathe wherever stored. Applying a water and stain protector is recommended.
