Look after them I hear you say? What's that?
Well you change the oil in your car regularly, so why not do the same for your boots to keep them looking and feeling great plus it will make them last longer. Here's how......
Maintaining your boots is not difficult or expensive, but it does need to be done at regular intervals, particularly during the winter months.
Step 1 Keep them clean.
If boots are dirty or wet wipe them off using an old towel. The important thing is to make sure you remove the dust and dirt that may have accumulated during the day, use a brush if necessary. Dust and dirt particles are one of leathers biggest enemies. They work into folds eventually causing abrasion and cracking.
Step 2. Allow boots to dry out before wearing them again.
(Never dry boots in front of a fire or in direct sunlight. It causes the leather to crack)
Moisture from your feet settles in the boot and without time to dry bacteria stains the leather.
A good practice is to rotate your boots, never wearing the same boots two days in a row.
Step 3. Regularly polish and condition your boots.
Leather, just like your car, needs regular lubrication. By conditioning you boots with a quality shoe care product like Granger's G-WAX, you lubricate the fibers and add to the life of your boots. To give your boots the best waterproof treatment for the winter months, I recommend giving your new boots a condition with G-WAX before you wear them the first time and follow it up with regular applications.
Granger's products help you keep your footwear working better for longer. Their advanced proofers help to keep the water out while conditioning and nourishing the leather, keeping your feet drier and extending the life or your boots and shoes.
