With each pair of boots you have, you should take the time to properly maintain them. The few minutes you invest doing this will greatly extend the life of the boots.
Do not let dirt and dust accumulate on leather products. After each wearing, your boots should be wiped down with a damp, not wet, cloth. Dust and dirt can break down the leather and shorten the life of your boots. Allow your boots to dry out thoroughly between wearings. This prevents the onset of bacteria from forming in the leather. Allow your boots to air dry; do not set them near heat as this will dry them out excessively.
Conditioning leather is important because conditioner helps to maintain the original look and feel of the leather. By conditioning your boots you will be keeping your boots from drying out. Use a conditioner specially formulated for boots. Lanolin based products work best. Stampede Tack & Western Wear has plenty of options for you to choose from. Our favorite for most leathers is a conditioner called Bick 4, which is especially good for exotic leathers which require ever a little more TLC.
To keep your boots looking their best, you should periodically apply a matching boot cream polish. The polish will help to cover any scuffs and can be brought to a bright luster.
You can protect your boots even more with water repellant. You can also use boot trees to help maintain your boots shape and form when you are not wearing them. Finally, always use a Boot Jack to remove your cowboy boots so that they do not break down or get damaged from “kicking” them off. Stampede Tack & Western Wear has a great selection of Boot Jacks in stock.
