The Boot Restoration Process
What You’ll Need
- A Leather Boot
- A horsehair brush or rag
- Boot conditioner
- Boot cream
Clean your beloved boot with a horsehair brush or a damp, wet rag. If your boot gets wet, wait until the boot dries before conditioning it.
Use a trusted boot conditioner to help rejuvenate and soften the leather. It will help protect, revive and repair the leather. Otherwise, the leather will begin to crack.
Buff out the leather slowly and carefully with a brush with boot cream along worn out areas.
Then use a dry rag to help absorb the boot cream in small circular movements.
Allow the cream to absorb into the leather, then buff again with your brush.
