How to care for and get the longest life out of your boots
Always clean your boots after use by brushing caked dirt away from welts and seams, then wipe leather with a clean damp cloth. If your boots become wet, never dry them by a fire or artificial heat source as this will cause the leather to harden and shrink and in extreme cases pull away from the sole. Always allow the boots to dry at room temperature.
To assist in making your boots water resistant and pliable you should dress the leather after cleaning with a suitable leather dressing.
Avoid exposing your boots to chemical contamination as this may reduce the life expectancy. Leather is absorbent by nature and strong acids and alkalis will do irreparable damage. Such commonplace substances such as milk and salt are highly damaging and in the event of exposure rinse the contaminant from the boots thoroughly before applying a leather dressing.
