Clean: Use a damp microfibre cloth to wipe off any dirt and residue as needed. Be sure that the cloth is not wet! T ake care not to scratch the leather in this step. Allow your boots to dry thoroughly before conditioning or polishing.
Condition: Using leather conditioner is an essential step in maintaining the longevity and appearance of leather goods. Leather can become dry and lose its suppleness over time due to exposure to elements like sunlight, heat, and moisture. Applying a high-quality leather conditioner helps to moisturize the material, preventing it from becoming brittle and developing cracks. Additionally, the conditioner nourishes the leather, keeping it soft and smooth, while also enhancing its natural luster. When using conditioner, focus specifically on regions that tend to crease the most, such as the flex point of the toes. Allow your boots to dry thoroughly before applying polish or weatherproofing. It is recommended to apply leather conditioner a minimum of twice annually to ensure optimal care.
Polish: Use for leather you wish to shine! To apply polish, use a slightly damp cloth. Dip the cloth in polish, and work into the leather using a circular motion. We recommend a cream or wax-based polish. Choose a color that matches as closely to your footwear as possible or use neutral polish to avoid altering the color of your boots.
Allow the leather to absorb the polish for 10 minutes before buffing with a brush. Use a natural bristle brush, and move in quick side to side movements. Buff your leather gently! This will bring the shine back to the leather.
* Polishing is only for smooth leather, not for suede, nubuck or oil tanned leathers. Other specialty products are available for those finishes. Polish will leave leather with a glossy finish.
Protect: Use a leather protectant balm or spray for weather-proofing your footwear. Focus on creases, seams, and stitching. Let the product absorb and wipe off excess. Allow the leather to dry completely for effective protection against water and stains. Repeat for an added layer of defense, preserving the leather's durability and natural qualities.
