Everything You Need To Know About Cowboy Boots February 15 2021
When you are looking around for a new pair of cowboy boots, it is important to consider all of the facts. We love everything about all cowboy boots, but there are some things that people don’t necessarily know about before buying their first pair.
Can cowboy boots be stretched?
Yes, your cowboy boots can be stretched. Take into account that the type of leather you have may need a different process, but here is what we know. You can always take them to a professional to have them stretch them out for you, but if you want to do it yourself there is still a way. When you first get a pair of boots, they are going to be stiff.
How do I clean my boots?
Cowboy boots need to be cleaned a certain way. You will need to make sure that you dust off your boots before doing anything else. You can do this with a soft cloth or a soft-bristled brush so that you don’t scratch the leather. Then you can use a leather cream to clean and condition your boots. Skidmore’s leather cream is what we’ve found best when it comes to cleaning your boots. This will also provide a level of protection over your boots. To take care a little further, you can use Skidmore’s beeswax waterproofer to care for your boots.
Can I get my boots resoled?
You can absolutely get your boots resoled. Leather soles are a little bit slick at first but get worn in with more use. The leather bottom is the most traditional. These also tend to deteriorate faster than synthetic soles. Synthetic soles can last for several years. These are better for work boots since they can handle more than the leather sole. The synthetic soles are typically worn for everyday use and can protect from outdoor conditions.
What type of leather should I get?
There are so many different types of leather on the market for cowboy boots. When choosing leather, it all depends on what you are using the boots for. Here are a few of the most popular options.
