Boot Care

We always recommend using the services of your local reputable Shoe Repair for the care and maintenance of your boots when needed.

  • Ostrich

    Care and Maintenance

     

    • Brush dirt off after every wear using a horsehair brush. For excess dirt gently clean using a damp smooth cloth.

    • Keep boots stored in a dark and dry place. 

    • We recommend alternating days between wear to allow boots to air and dry out.

    • To keep the proper form of the boot we recommend storing with tissue, newspaper or proper fitting shoe trees that do not stretch the leather

    Conditioning

    We recommend conditioning at least every 2 months depending on wear. For heavy use conditioning monthly is recommended. Conditioning may leave a matte like finish but the shine can be restored with proper boot polishing

    • Brush dirt off after every wear using a horsehair brush and gently clean using a damp smooth cloth.​

    • With the boots still damp apply a leather conditioner over the entire boot.

    • Let the conditioner dry preferably overnight, then buff using a horsehair brush

    Polishing

    Polishing is only needed if desired it is all up to your personal preference. If you  prefer a polish then we only recommend doing so after a conditioning.

    • After a conditioning when the boots have been fully dried and buffed add a light coat of wax based neutral polish to all areas you want shined. We recommend using a neutral polish to avoid the polish color not matching that of the boot.

     

    • Allow the polish to dry and then buff with a soft smooth cloth.

    • Finish by buffing with a horsehair brush to your desired level of shine. 

    • For a high shine repeat the polishing process again.
