Make sure to clean your boots after use, especially if there is visible dirt and mud on them. Use a wet rag, sponge, or soft brush when cleaning. Small particles of debris can work their way into the pores and creases of the leather causing it to dry out and deteriorate. Unseen grime and oil-based particles can be removed by using a leather cleaner. Apply the cleaner to the leather sparingly while it is still wet. Rinse off excess with tap water and air dry thoroughly. If expedited drying is required, use a boot dryer.
Do not heat dry the boots with a hairdryer, space-heater, or open flame, as doing so can severely damage the product.
