Caring For Your Handmade Boots January 02 2015

You've invested your hard earned money in a pair of the toughest handmade boots available. Beck Boots are made to fit and built to last. Invest a little time and effort in caring for your handmade boots, and you will greatly extend their life and comfort. There are several things you should do to properly care for you boots.

Leather is a natural material, without proper care it will eventually dry out and crack. Excessive moisture pulls the natural oils out of leather, making the leather hard and dry. If you are in a lot of mud, manure, snow, or any kind of moisture, it is important to clean and condition your handmade boots often.

Cleaning your handmade work boots is pretty easy and straightforward. You can purchase a number of different saddle soaps and leather cleaners. You can also just use baby soap and water. Simply mix a little baby soap in some water and scrub the mud and gunk off of your boots with a brush or cloth, then rinse with clean water.

For dress boots that aren’t too dirty, I recommend Leather Amore cleaner and conditioner. Leather Amore is a liquid that will clean and condition your boots in one easy step.

Once your boots are clean and dry apply a high quality leather conditioner. We recommend Bee Natural Rain and Snow. Apply the conditioner to the entire foot of the boot. Make sure you get the area where the welt and vamp meet; this is where the leather usually dries out first.

Handmade boot conditionerUse a small paint brush or a q-tip to get into the creases. Clean and condition your handmade work boots on at least on a monthly basis, more often if you’re in a lot of manure.



Handmade boot conditionerFinally, if you will give your boots time to dry after each use, they will last much longer. The best thing you can do is put your boots on a Peet boot dryer every night. The Peet boot dryer safely dries perspiration as well as outer moisture. Drying your boots every night will reduce bacteria, fungus, and odor.
